Ryan and the Apricot Tree

Well, the videos speak for themselves!

There will be no more popcorn on our rotten apricot tree!

The best things in life


Who can argue that quite possibly one of the best things in life is watching your kid
run naked in the backyard? Prepare for one of the best things in our lives!

Ava's 1

Here are pictures of Ava's first birthday party. We had her party in Granma Cindy & Grandpa Ron's backyard with kids everywhere...pandamonium is actually the word that comes to mind. No hospital vistis, no broken bones or anything else traumatic. I do have to give a special thanks to Aania...she saved the day with cupcakes...honestly, what kind of mother am I...FORGOT the cupcakes at a children's birthday!!!

And as we all know, every party has it's pooper. Ava pooped on her own party!

Just because Ava's cute!

Bonus pics for her adoring fans...and her boyfriend (Mitchell)!

Ava's first haircut...

So, we took Ava last Saturday to Just Kidz Kuts to get her hair cut. Mommy, Daddy and our cousin (on Mommy side) Max came along for the ride! And here's the proof that our daughter now has an adorable bob and no longer looks like a shaggy sheep dog! Sorry Aania...we wanted it to be you...but Utah's a long way to go for a haircut!

Easter at our house

Ava is finally at an age where she can enjoy alot of the "fun" holidays. Here are a few Easter pics... It'll be nice when she can get some meaning behind them. Suggestions on achieving that?

The masses have voted

So, we're not all that super about remembering to blogg our adoring fans...but here we are. We've had pics requests and no need to fear...they will be honored! But really, we know everyone really wants to see Ava...I mean, hey, we get excited about seeing her every morning!

So her latest thing is time outs.

Daddy thought it was o.k. to allow Miss Thang to run and climb on our sofa...obviously NOT O.K....especially when said running and climbing involves trying to climb over the back and arms of the sofa (to our wooden floor and a broken head). So, we had a time-out. Ava protested and kicked and banged her head on her chair, but we made it. I got a hug and she has not attempted sofa diving again (yet).

so much in a year!

So, We basically forgot about our blog and so much has been happening that we really haven't had the time anyway. Well, Ava is now a year old...and what a big girl she is becoming! So full of personality and sassy too! We feel like two is really 12 months! Ryan is working for Pepsi Bottling Group and recently received a promotion and Cazra is presently a full time, stay home mommy. However, She has just received her licensing for in home put the word out! We are presently working on the yard....always projects around our house! So, we'll keep this updated with pics and such!
