Happy Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Among MANY things~~~I am thankful for these two darlings:)
Also EXTREMELY thankful that I can walk, something I wasn't able to do this time last year and didn't know if I would be able to on my own again.  This is such a huge blessing that we often take for granted (I know I always did).  I am also thankful for everyone who prayed and fasted for me.  I love you all:)

Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific
Me and some of my girlfriends up here decided to take a field trip down to the Long Beach Aquarium.  I thought Avery might be too young for it but boy was I wrong.  She had a blast:)
It worked out nice for me because I was going down to visit my family for the weekend anyway so they came and met us:)  My mom, Hayley, Rachel, Macady, Merivale, Noelle and Chloe all joined us:) 
Avery was cracking me up because she thought it was super cool to lay down on the ground in front of the fish tanks.  Don't quite know why but it was her favorite part.
I had fun pushing Avery and Chloe around in the double stroller (if you know me well enough you know I am obsessed with twins, so it was fun pretending:)
If you live near by I would recommend checking this place out it was radical.

Our little Avers sure seems grown up lately.  She has been walking for 2 months now and she does it like a champ!  She loves playing dolls and climbing into everything she can squeeze her little body into.  She loves her park play dates and is quite the daredevil.  She copies just about everything her friends do.  She has amazing dance moves when music comes on and Scott and I always wonder where she gets her material:)  Time continues to fly before our eyes.  It is fun to see her turning into a little girl but I sure miss those chunky cheeks:( 


Photoshop is much too fun:)  My sister downloaded some cool new editing filters for me so I have been messing around with them today:)  Kind of addicting I have to admit. I love the one of Avery with her favorite dolly:)                             

Such a cute little love bucket!

My cousin Matt just departed for his mission to Washington!  We enjoyed going to his farewell but are sad to see him go.
Avery is especially sad because she and Matt share a Bday.  A couple of weeks ago on Avery's actual Bday they got to celebrate together:)
Notice this adorable cake that my cousin CJ made for Avery.  Matt helped Avery blow the candles out because she kept trying to grab the flame:)
We wish Matt the best and can't wait to see him in two years!

Hope everyone had a happy happy Halloween
Aves didn't quite know what to think of the pumpkin guts but she had a blast in her lamby costume.  Scott and I went as Old MacDonald and Old MacDonald's wife:)

We took Avery trick or treating and she tried to get inside everyone's house it was hilarious.  She was super tired from all of her walking around at the end of the night.
The night after Halloween our friends had a "without the kids party" it was super fun. 
We decided to go more traditional with our costumes since our little lamb wasn't there:).
Oh how I love Halloween :O
