OcToBeR FuN....

October is Ava's most favorite month out of the year. I don't know if it is because her birthday is on the 14th or because of Halloween, if she had it her way we would dress up in costume all year long! Here are some highlights, and once again the pictures aren't in order, but you get the idea!
So sad to admit this but this is our first family picture since we have had Cash. Here we are all dressed up to go party at Ava's school and at the Clearfield aquatic center's BOOnanza.

Where The Wild Things Are is one of our favorite stories. Ava decided last year that Cash would be Max the king of the wild things. So thanks to Grandma Jackie and her awesome sewing skills she made this adorable costume.
Here Mermaid Ava and Koi the turtle are riding the haunted train at the aquatic center. They are so cute!!

Dave and Ava carving pumpkins. Ava loved pulling out the guts this year. Her pumpkin is a butterfly, while I carved out a witch in mine.


With my mom's help we made this mermaid cake for Ava's under the sea party. My mom helped plan fun games, and made the cutest invites, Thanks Mom!

Little Ava waiting for her guest to arrive

Ava was pretty spoiled this year. We went to Denver for Aunt Bonnie's baby shower and while we where there we had a birthday party. Aunt Candace found a fun corn maze to go to and she made cupcakes for the kids to decorate. It was a fun evening.

blowing out all 4 candles!

I was lucky enough to be able to go to school with Ava on her birthday and share her birthday poster with all of her classmates. Ava brought Kit Kats to share with everyone No surprise there, they are her favorite. When we got home from school the boys (Cash and Nic) had presents and a cake for their big sister.

She finally got her two wheeler!!!

Look how stinking cute she is in that helmet!! She was beyond thrilled that her bike came with a water bottle.

Corn maze in Brighton, Co. All the cousins

Jaxon cracks me up! Instead of walking on the path we would go through the rows.

Cute Kylie on the rope swing.

Uncle Nate and Aunt Bethany set this picture up. Cash you are to delicious!!

We went down to Gardner Village to get in the Halloween mood. Ava had to her eyes painted up.

Cash and a calf at the petting zoo. The calf was so mellow he didn't even move when Cash would smack him on the nose.

Lately all my pictures of the kids are like this, Ava posing because she is a fashion model so she says and Cash off in his own world studying everything.
