Even More!

Well, can you believe it, since my last post both my dad Mel and my niece Sarah and my nephew Jayden have created blogs as well!
Such a great way to keep in touch. Ava was very happy when I told her about it. To quote her: "Yay!!" :) I agree!

Joining the Ranks

Well, it's a blogging generation and now my second sister JoAnna has succumbed at last (insert wicked cackle here) and joined the trend! Yay!! Check it out here. Pretty soon both Jon's and my extended families won't ever need to talk on the phone or visit anymore cuz we'll all catch up "virtually". (That would actually be really sad--do some families really do that?)
So I got to counting this morning and figured out that:
In Jon's extended family there are at least 6 bloggers...
In mine there are at least 5...and my dad has a forum for his buggy club...
Not to mention we have 2 blogs just for our little family (Jonah's and ours).
Leave a comment and let me know--How many bloggers do you have in your family?

Time with Friends

Our friends Steve and Brooke stopped over for a night on their way home to Spokane.
Addysen (almost 4) and Paige (1) are their sweet girls with Brynne in the middle.

All the kidlets in a row...

We made it to the park on a warmish Sunday--Brynne with Daddy on the swings

We met our friends there! (In case you don't know them yet, L-R: Aidan, Joshua, Jonah, Makaena, Paige, and Ava-Lou)

Paigey's Party

Jonah, Ava, Brynne, and I went to the Durias' last Saturday to help our friend Paige Elisabeth (ahem) celebrate turning the big fiver! It was a sunny and beautiful, albeit cold, day and the kids even got to play outside for most of the time.

Brynne soberly modeling the new sweater I just finished for her. I still need to add some snaps or a decorative pin (as the pattern calls for) I'm just afraid she would chew the decorative pin to shreds with those TWO teeth she has now...

Paigey and Ava eating the yummy cake Auntie Mindy made!
I guess I was grilling Paige about what's changing in her life now that she's five.
We both look pretty serious!

We feel their pain...

Driving past some construction workers today:
Ava: They are working again today!
Jonah: Of course, they work every day.
Ava: Oh. They must be tired. . . and hungry.

A Little Bit of Boo

How cute are these smiles?!

She's 11 months now! Crawling all over the place, getting into everything, attempting to climb the stairs, grabbing everything off the floor and eating it (even lint!), and is bald but beautiful. She raises her arms and makes little noises when we ask her "How big is Brynney?", she plays peek-a-boo, she has almost 2 teeth, she grabs the johnny-jump-up and pushes it and says "Wheeee!", and is so all around rolley-polley-cute that I can't help slurping her up all day long.
