Avery likes to put the goggles on her head every week!!
The kids making their ghost craft

Jax, Liam and Avery

Avery goes to a playgroup on Wednesday mornings called Wee-Two's. It's from 9:30 to 10:30 at St. Peter's church in Apple Creek. Our friend Linda Hartsell goes to church there and she invited Avery to come and play with her grandson Jax. Avery has made new friends. Today, they wore their Halloween costumes. Everyone was so cute. Avery of course was a lady bug, Liam was an elephant (his costume was handmade by his aunt!!), Carter was a penguin, Aleena was a lady bug too!! Lexi was Minnie Mouse, Connor was a knight and Jax was a turtle. (I will try and post pictures). Every week, when we get home, Avery goes straight to bed...It wears her out!!

Who needs sleep!?!

What a weekend!!! I am so exhausted, Avery hasn't been sleeping well for about a week now (not sure what the deal is). I'm guessing it's a combination of a few things - teething, stuffy nose, etc. She's also decided that she's not really into taking naps either!!! She went to sleep fairly quickly tonight, so i'm praying that she sleeps all night long, no 3am wake up calls!!!
