5 Years

Happy five year anniversary to my sweet husband. It's hard to believe that we have been married for 5 years. We have lived, laughed, and loved over these past 5 years. We have done a lot, learned a lot and accomplished a lot together.

We have a fun date night planned for tonight. Carson and Avery are going over to MiMi and PaPa's house so Shane and I can go to dinner. Can't wait! It's been a long time since we have had a date night.

My sweet, strong-willed girl. This shirt just about sums up the week we have been having with Avery: DRAMA! This little girl knows what she wants, and she knows what she doesn't want. And what she doesn't want to do is sleep in her own bed. We decided that it was time for Avery to move out of our room (and our bed) and into her own bed. She's not a fan of that idea, to say the least. Last night was night 4 of trying to get her to sleep in her crib. Lord, give me strength and patience. I'm trying so hard not to give in, but it's hard!

I love her determined spirit, she is going to do GREAT things in life (including sleeping through the night :)

Carson, on the other hand, slept 11 hours straight the other night. I told him he needs to give his sister a pep talk on sleeping.

Here is a video of Carson talking/singing. I love hearing his sweet voice.

Happy Snow Day

Wow!! I can't believe how much it snowed here yesterday!! Some areas in Dallas got almost a foot of snow.....crazy! I had to work yesterday, but enjoyed watching the beautiful snow fall from the 12th floor at Children's.

Today Carson, Avery, and I bundled up and went out to play.

They are looking at each other like, "what's the big deal about snow?"

Our snowman. He's a little wimpy. I had to build him quickly, my audience was fading fast.

The dogs went CRAZY in the snow!
The trees were so pretty!

On a side note,
we started rice cereal this past week. They didn't really know what to do with it at first but they quickly figured it out. Carson seems to love it! Avery will eat it, but makes a funny face everytime you put it in her mouth.

And finally, here is the video of Avery rolling onto her belly. Such a big girl!

Snow Bunnies

Our first vacation with the babies was a success!! We went to Beaver Creek, CO with my parents, Shane's brother Travis and his wife JJ. We had a great time. We were able to ski while
MiMi hung out with Carson and Avery. (we have the best MiMi!!) The babies did GREAT on the plane. I was so proud of them. Avery let out a couple of screams, but they mostly just slept the whole way.

On a walk with MiMi and PaPa
MiMi brought the babies out to the base of the mountain to meet us for lunch.
The weather was so nice. Only snowed one day.
Uncle Travis and aunt JJ
Me, my dad and Shane. He insisted on wearing his Texas painted overalls from college. A little redneck, but I still love him!!
And finally, here is their 4 month picture.
At our check up yesterday, Carson weighed 14lbs 12oz (50%) and was 25 1/4 inches (50%) and Avery weighed 13lbs 9oz (50%) and was 24 1/2 inches (50%)
They are getting so big!!
