Day Off

It is a beautiful day in the neighborhood today!! The sun is shining, it's going to be in the 60's (yea!!), and I am home from work....but only because Avery is sick. When I went in to wake her up this morning to go to Rosetta's (the babysitter), she was burning up....102 temperature. So I get to spend the day inside taking care of my baby...I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. I have self diagnosed Avery with Hand,Foot,Mouth disease. She has a couple blisters on the inside of her cheek. Luckily, she is still eating for me, we will see how the rest of the day goes. So far, she has been sleeping the day away.

Other info:
~Happy St. Patrick's Day!!!!
~I ordered Avery's birthday present today - a swingset!!
~I'm getting ready to place a candle order from Aunt Shari....I love those candles!!
~Happy Birthday to soooo many people this week: Hannah, Joel, Jodi, Jenny, Grandma Pat, Adam, Tommy (sorry if I forgot anyone!!)

Again, I am finding myself saying, "Where has the time gone?" Several of my girlfriends and I from high school are planning our 10 year class reunion!! Somedays, it feels like yesterday that we were attending good ole Waynedale.....and here we are today...all grown up (well, most of us, LOL) It's hard work trying to plan this event...trying to figure out how many people we think will show up, and how much people will want to pay. I think we've decided to have it at Memories Party Center in Wooster. We will be having dinner, drinks and a dj....sounds like fun, right!!

Busy Weekend

We had a crazy, busy weekend....but fun filled!! Amanda and Greg had their marriage blessing and reception. It was beautiful. Amanda looked georgous as usual, Greg was handsome, and Avery was just too cute as the flower girl. She did so well. I knew it was going to be a long day, and I was worried. But she was a trooper!! Amanda picked me up to go to the salon at 7:30. So Tom brought Avery in at 8:45 to the salon, so she could get her hair done. Then he took her home, so she could nap before having her to the church at 12:45. She walked down the aisle with me, and then she sat with Tom in the pew for the ceremony. She even smiled for pictures afterward. Then we were off to the reception at Memories Party Center. Avery danced the entire night!! She had so much fun!!

Ohhhh Avery!!

Well, what can I say!?! Let me just start with.....Avery keeps me on my toes!! She is into everything....no joke!! About a month ago, she discovered how to open doors. So last week, I found her in her bathroom....she had took a stool in there from her playroom and got into the drawer and found the vasoline....it was everywhere.....countertop, sink, hair, face, clothes...etc, etc!! Then, the next day, I found her in her playroom with her hands down her pants, and of course it was a poopy diaper, and she had smeared it on her door....YUCK!! Just this past Friday, I found her in her bathroom again, and she was dipping her toothbrush in vasoline and brushing her teeth with it!! And then, to top it off....on Saturday, I had a hair appointment, so Tom was at home with Avery. He said she was in her playroom playing for a few minutes and he went in to check on her, and what did he find?......Avery- completely naked, no clothes or diaper.....and 3 piles of poop on the floor!!! Oh my oh my. Needless to say, he had to call my mom to come help him clean it up. From now until Avery is potty trained, she is wearing a onesie...no ifs ands or buts about it!!

In other notes:

- We had fun in the snow!! (But I am sooooo ready for spring!!) I'll take temperatures like today though (40+degrees!!)
