Ava's Christmas Program. AMAZING


I must say this may be one of my favorite pictures.  The program was divine.  I'm trying to figure out how to post the video to Feliz Navidad.  When the chorus came on everyone was supposed to "rock out".  You, Miss. 4, decided to run back and forth between all of the kids from one end of the stage to the other.  Over and over and over.  I could barely keep up with the camera and where you were.  Twas awesome.

Funniest picture ever



This might be one of the funniest pictures I have ever seen.  


1.  I love a good chicken and this one happens to be gigantic.
2.  I love a good do.  I must say this hair looks sooooo silky soft.  It also has such a cute pincurl mohawk - Ahhhhh.
3.  I love a little gender neutrality.  I really can't tell if it is a boy or a girl.  It doesn't really matter because #4 rocks them all
4.  A bit of irreverence.  A cig hanging out of the side of a 4 yr olds mouth whilst sitting on a smallish chair next to a large chicken whilst wearing mary janes.


As I am sitting here writing this I hear from my bed.


Captain, "I also invented chocolate after I invented snowboarding."


Ava, "What else?"

The Captain al la 2011




I've always told your dad that he has a constant look that says, "Hey I might be trying to hide the fact that I just robbed a bank."  I think this picture truly exemplifies the theme.   



I forgot to post this.  I took this photo just before your money mental was glued to your teeth.  Look how happy you were to get the braces.  It will be hilarious to post the after picture next to this one.  You guys will be like 22 and in college.  



2011 was the year of the hair.  Who would EVER have thought that you would have gone from (the pic below) to (the pic above)  Not I fo sho.

A, "I want some beans that are smashed and liquidy."


Mom, "Ok.  You would like some frijoles?"


A, "heeheeeheeehehee is that the Spanish word for beans."


Mom, "Why yes it is.  Would you like some frijoles y arroz?"


A, "Dorla speaks Spanish.  (This is Dora the explorer yo.  You had a really hard time pronouncing her name)  And hehehehe Tiko (again a character from Dora the Explorer) only speaks the Spanish.  I think this was because he lives in Spanish world.   It is so funny because he NEVER speaks anything but the Spanish."


Mom, "You know your dad didn't speak English until he was 10?  His first language was Spanish."


A, "(LARGE GASP)  Oh my gosh - I KNEW IT - he lived in the Spanish world also. That is crazy that he and Tiko lived in Spanish world and ate frioooles."

SIck Days

Yes, that is some of the puke on your face.  You've been fighting something for a couple of weeks.  Yesterday you woke up with a fever.  When you came in the front room to veg on my lap (FOR FOUR HOURS)  you said,


A "I am so tired."


Mom, "Well go back to bed."


A, " I can't.  I keep having nightmares.  Then I wake up.  Then I can't remember the nightmares."


Mom, "That stinks.  Oh honey you are hot.  You are running a fever."


A, "What does that mean."


Mom, "There are some bad bugs in your body.  Your body is making the good bugs to eat the bad ones. Cool huh.  During that time you run a fever and feel kind of uncomfortable."


A, "I KNOW WHY I'M HAVING THE NIGHTMARES.  I HAVE THE FEVER.   THE FEVER MAKES THE NIGHTMARES!!!!!!!! IT ALL MAKES SENSE NOW."
