The Kids Making Pizzas...YUM!

I thought it would be fun....and messy to let the kids make their own pizzas. This was a complete experiment and I had no idea if it was going to work. Surprisingly, the pizzas not only looked cute, but they actually tasted great too!!

Kitty Cookie Time

We decided to try and make cute kitty cookies. Some of them turned our a little creepy, but I'll let you be the judge! It was fun anyways and of course, they were still delicious!!!!

Ava and Mommy's Day

Yesterday was Rylinn's first day of 1st grade! I can't believe it!! She is getting so big so fast! I will post pictures and write about that milestone a little later!!

Since one of my babies is now going to be in school for a full day I decided it is now time to focus on my little Ava Shea. She is getting bigger and I think she needs a little independence from constantly being the little sister.

It has been really interesting to watch her the last two days. It may sound crazy, but I can already tell she is loving her new independence and she already seems so much more mature.

I decided after dropping Rylinn off at school (tears...) I would take Ava to go see a movie just the two of us. When we got there she picked out a box of Gummie Bears and a drink.....$9.00 later LOL! She ended up sitting next to another 3 year old who she quickly befriended. Normally she has her big sister who does all the talking and 'friend making,' but not this time!

Shortly after making a friend, Ava decided on her own she would share her candy with her. Next thing I knew Ava decided she wanted to give her friend the WHOLE entire box of Gummie Bears! The Gummie Bears cost about $4, but seeing Ava growing and giving by herself was completely priceless!

Here's the Space Chimps movie poster :)
