So Much I Am Thankful For

Thanksgiving was fantastic. Husband was home(a rarity on any given holiday), MY BROTHER CAME HOME for a two day visit from his TEMPORARY home in Montana, Ava ATE her first Thanksgiving meal(as well as MANY many snacks), I made a very fantastic and delicious turkey, as well as some yummy sides, Gbo and LilG played football outside while Ava and I collected and studied many various leaves, great day indeed! :) Hope all my friends and family had an equally wonderful Thanksgiving and remembered to be thankful for what you have!

Don't have all that many photos, too busy enjoying the fam to really whip out the camera, but here are a few of the many daily blessings I am thankful for, otherwise known as my kiddos/mini monsters...

Fit for a Princess...

So thanks to the amazing group we are a part of, Hearts of Hope, we were offered free tickets to attend the Disney Princess on Ice show a few months ago. Ava was sooo excited! Even more so because our favorite Heart Mommy/Daughter duo, Michelle and Maddie, were also going! Hooray! We carpooled it out to Arco, bought the girlies some ridiculously priced, but absolutely necessary, princess memorabilia(specifically a light up tiara(that broke a couple of weeks later) and a cinderella wand(that didn't even make it home). We then took our seats, took a few photos of the super cute heart bff's, and enjoyed the show. Or, enjoyed watching the girls enjoy watching the show. I am sure Michelle can feel me on this one. ;) Ava was in Disney Princess HEAVEN! So glad we were able to go, especially with such great friends. Thanks Valerie, and thanks Michelle and Maddie! <3

A few photos, as always....

Halloweenie goodness

Halloween with the kids was great this year! G says that he is too old for the traditional store bought costumes and instead opted to just wear his baseball uniform, okay by me! His dad and I certainly didn't mind saving about $80 on a costume for him. Though it's just another sign of how fast he is growing up, which makes me :(

I showed Ava some costumes online and let her pick out her most favorite. Which was of course a Purple Fairy Princess getup. One that was VERY similar to a costume she wore a couple of years ago, probably because it was purchased at the same children's store, gymboree. Anyway, she made a super duper cute flower fairy princess and enjoyed the dressup aspect of Halloween very much, no surprise there. The walking from door to door and asking complete strangers for candy...not so much! She was okay with it for probably 6 or so houses, then she was DONE. Which is exactly how Gregory always was and still is. Kind of crazy, because husband and I can remember BEGGING our parents to take us to "just one more house/street/block/etc" we could have trick or treated into the wee hours of the night. Idk, I guess I should be thankful they aren't so grubby over candy, but they are sorta fuddy duddyish about it. ;)

So here are a few photos of the night, as well as a couple from the Kelly Karnival Gregory's school holds each year, we didn't make it to Ava's carnival this year...

Time to play catch up

Hi all,

It has been SO super long since I have updated Little Miss' blog. Sorry. :( So much has happened in the last few months with many changes, nothing major really. Just enough to keep me utterly scatterbrained. More so than usual. ;)

So I will try to pump out a Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas blog today. Look for them later!

Heart Hugs Always,
