Ava's Birthday Party

I still can't believe my babies are two! I told myself that this year I was doing one party and that was it.  Of course I ended up having three again.  I just think they need their own little celebrations!  For Ava's party we went to Glitter Box with all of her girlie's for pedicures!  A loves getting pedicures!  I think she likes the snacks they give you while you are getting your nails done! 

Usually she doesn't like sticking her feet in the water but I guess she is really growing up because she put them right in!  A is such a little tiny!  She wore her birthday dress from last year!  If it fits again next year I might start getting worried! 

Lyla and her mommy!

Graham made an appearance at the party too!  No pedicure for him though! 

Such big girls!  Ava choose pink of course!

I love her little baby feet!

Caroline is showing off her purple toes! 

She had so much fun with her friends!

After our pedicures we all went back to our house for lunch!  Gigi made such a good lunch for all of us!  

Ava's Birthday Cake! 

Playing us a little song on her new baby grand from Aunt Lauren and Scott! 

The girls lunches made by Gigi!  Butterfly and Crown sandwiches!

Happy Birthday to you Miss Ava!

Present Time! It was so cute how Ava sat in her chair while her friends brought her their gifts!  

Beach toys from Caroline!  We can't wait to take them with us to play in the sand! 

Thanks for my new purse Lyla!

Showing off her new necklace from Aunt Karrie!

Ava's girly table! 
Ava had such a great birthday party!  She loved spending time with her friends doing girly things with no boys in sight (they went on a walk with Lally)! Thanks for celebrating with us everyone!

Birthday Celebration at School

Happy Birthday Ava Brooks and Knox!  I decided to bring petit fours to their school so they could celebrate with all of their friends! It was the perfect way to kick off Birthday week! 
They look so old! They were so excited about their birthday!
Love these faces!
It was so fun to be in their classroom and see them interact with their little friends! 

Their little class! They love their friends so much!  Every single day Brooks says, "Mommy, car bye bye friends." Translation-Take me to school to see my friends! 

Ava loved everyone singing happy birthday to her! She loved her petit four too! 

I hope they always look out for each other!  Brooks was upset about something and Ava patted him on his head to make him feel better!  Sweet girl! 
I stayed for a while to play and at one point I think all eight kids were sitting on my lap while I read them stories!  Thank goodness I have a big lap! Birthday week was off to a great start!

I usually get the boys out of bed first after naps and then we all go get Ava.  Knox has started trying to climb in her bed every time we go in her room!  I really think he would love to sleep in the same crib as her! If Knox isn't in his crib though it really bothers Brooks and he yells for his brother! ha Maybe when we move them to big beds they can all sleep together! 

Testing out the group sleeping arrangement! 

Sweet kisses!  Brooks gives the best kisses!  Ava is very stingy with hers!  She thinks its hilarious to wipe off my kisses too! Little Stinker!

We took the babies to their first Wino Wednesday of the year! Brooks had so much fun swinging and running around! 

Mark even had bubbles which my kids went crazy over! 

He had lots of snacks too!  Knox loved that!

Dancing on the porch to a little George Michael!  The girl has some pretty funny moves!

A trip through the car wash!  A small improvement from last year! 

Coffee addict! I didn't start drinking coffee until I was 23!  She's starting young! 

The babies talk about Daddy being at work all of the time!  I thought we could surprise him one day with a little visit! He loves for us to come see him! This is a little glimpse of what my kids look like on a daily basis!  Random!  Ava is very opinionated about what she wears.  She loves hats and loves her rain boots.  Oh and she likes to wear her hat backwards!  Why hats Ava?  Why not bows?! 

The red boots are a size 5 and he wears a 7 or 8.  He doesn't seem to care! 

When I posted this on instagram I said that I was officially the person I use to judge.  The person who brings their kids in the liquor store wearing random clothes.  Thank goodness we didn't see too many people!
