We’ve had a lot of cloudy, rainy days recently. The weather mixed with Daddy’s long work hours makes for some crazy days. But Friday morning was sunny and beautiful so we declared it an outside day and we didn’t even get fully dressed or brush our hair until lunch time. It was a perfect morning of playdough and dancing in the driveway. And it will always be fun to look back on Avery girl’s faces and wild hair days.

Avery girl turned 3 last week! She is a ball of energy and fun. She knows how to push all the right buttons to drive you crazy and then before you know it she's got you curled up on the couch reading books and playing babies, thinking she's just the sweetest thing in the world. She loves babies and purple. She rides her little tricycle all over the neighborhood, bound and determined to keep up with the two-wheelers in front of her. She's rarely still but she does love her lap time in the morning and just before bedtime. Cousin Dean introduced us to Peppa Pig and she's a big fan. We had a second set of tubes put in 3 weeks ago and we are already seeing a big difference in her speech. She even started talking in Sunday School. Every day she gets up asking if she is still 3 or did she go back to being 2 again. These birthdays are just so confusing. We love her so. We couldn't think of anyone better to round out our little family.
(We made a promise that she could paint with Molly when she turned 3 so she held us to it. I think you'll see why we made her wait. Maybe we should have made it 4. :))
We had so much fun at the pumpkin patch a couple of weeks ago that we had to take Samuel back today on his day off of school.
We are are all pretending that it's fall here in South Texas. You even see plenty of girls walking in leggings and boots but we're in denial. It's still full on summer. But we won't let that stop us from doing all the fun fall activities and burning those pumpkin candles!
We had a great day. And it reminded us how much we miss having bubba around during the day. Avery held his hand the whole time. It was sweet. We're glad for a school that gives us a day off at least once a month.
