window to the world...

her window to the world that is.

yes...what you see was created by ava...for ava.


yes, she's quite proud of her accomplishment. nothing like postponing the inevitable afternoon nap for a few moments...
while she watches big sisters play in the yard.
yes, it's her window to the world alright...and what a wonderful world that is!!!!!

***she worked tirelessly (without my knowledge, of course) to bend that part of the blind back and forth (until it broke off) so that she could witness for herself what all that commotion was in the backyard...she has a bird's eye view of the swing set... sigh!!!!***

cuties in cozy coupes...

make me cRaZy in love!!!!

a field trip that ends in donuts...

is a field trip that makes maddie smile!!!!

last friday, maddie's class headed over to the post office to mail valentine's from mrs. sumlin! they were all so cute rushing up to her to get their "sticker" (aka stamp) so that they could put their envelopes in the mail slot!!! we were hoping for a grand tour...but i'm not sure what the postal workers thought of all those little ones!!

after everyone's letters were signed, sealed, and deposited...

we herded over to krispy kreme to watch donuts being made...and of course, high on maddie's to eat one!!!

it was a fun day spent with my precious madeline and her sweet pal, reeves (who rode with us!)! i love watching them make memories with their friends!

our newest snow angel...

it's official...

we had a REAL snow day!!!!
we were oh so very excited to actually SEE snow falling from the sky and STICKING to the ground! the kids could not get suited up fast enough...which meant that jeffrey and i had to gear up ourselves! ava looked like a pink version of the "marshmallow man"...and wasn't too sure about the snow AT ALL at first...but soon warmed up to the idea! however, her poor hands and nose didn't warm up at all!!!!! her little self froze quickly...and we had to bring her in to thaw out!!!

ella & maddie had an absolute blast! they played outside for hours...and never seemed affected by the cold one bit!

it was a fun day filled with lots of playing, movie watching, and snuggling...and it looks like we get another one tomorrow!!!

hard to see...but the snow is really coming down!!!

this picture just cracks me up...look at ava's face!!!

sweet little snow bunnies!!!

look at all the pink...

making snow angels!

i love these little people "snow" much...i just HAD to...i know...cheesy!!!

sledding down gran & poppy's driveway!

so fun!

look at this little baby...laid back! priceless!!!
