I'm going to make up for not having a High Five for Friday post last week by giving you a High SIX! (Heads up, a lot happened this week and I went picture crazy. Prepare for a bunch of photo collages).
These little beauties have been getting together for playdates for almost a year now. At our first playdate, they didn't really want anything to do with each other--except to steal each other's snacks and sippy cups. They now range in age from 14-18 months old and are actually kind of "hanging out" with each other. I hope they become great friends!!
I found THE cutest Halloween costume at a consignment sale a couple of months ago. I was so excited for Avery to wear it. I'm not really a "let's wear whatever TV character is popular this year" kind of costume fan. I want something unique, something adorable. Avery obviously has other plans (doesn't she always??). If I even bring this costume out of the closet, she starts to whimper. Don't ask me why. So would you like to see the Halloween costume that never was?
*sigh* Good thing it was only $7.
I was hugely involved in FFA in high school. I got the opportunity to serve as the 2005-2006 Kentucky FFA State President. Naturally, I had to have the "I Wore the Blue Jacket" shirt. FFA is in my blood and I hope that Avery catches the blue and gold bug too.....hence the "Future FFA Member" shirt.
Finally, on Wednesday, my sister Dayna (the redhead on the left) and I got to go up to Indianapolis for the National FFA Convention to judge the Agricultural Issues contest. Our youngest sister Kristen (the blonde in the middle) is a senior this year, so she was in Indy with her chapter. My dad requested that we all get a picture at National Convention together. He was at National Convention in Kansas City, Missouri thirty-someodd years ago and never dreamed that, one day, his children would all be at a National FFA Convention together. :)
Last week, my family went to a Fall Festival--where Avery got the opportunity to paint a pumpkin (and mommy's hands), pie her Granddaddy in the face and show her pumpkin off to Aunt Dayna. I hope my child inherits my love of Fall.
Our Minnie population in this house is getting a little out of control. Minnie plates, silverware, cups, pillows, shirts, hats, pajamas, beach towels, socks, toys and stuffed animals. They're taking over. I'm a tiny bit nervous.
