Hello friends...I am so happy it's Friday today. Don't know why but it feels like this week has gone on forever. Ava is taking her nap so I've got some time to myself, yay!
Tonight we're dressing Ava up as a bunny and going out trick-or-treating with her little cousins Jadyn and Jake, then to a Halloween party at our friend's house. As most of you know, I HATE dressing up for Halloween, and I was so relieved to hear that we didn't have to come in costume. I know I'm a party pooper, but I hate dressing up. I was thinking of going as pregnant Britney Spears, but don't even want to take the time to do that. Why is it that girls our age always dress in something slutty anyways? Slutty angel, slutty nurse, slutty cat, whatever, it's gross...I'm over the slutty stage I guess!
Anyways, tonight should be fun then we're not doing a thing the rest of the weekend. I'm so excited...just sitting around the house in our sweats vegging out and doing some cleaning, now that's my idea of a fun weekend! My God, I think I'm turning into my offense mom and dad.
Well, that's about all for now...we get to find out the sex of the baby a week from Monday!! I'm so excited to find out...we haven't talked much about names or anything, so it will be good to know the sex and then pick a name and get the room ready:)
Have a very happy and safe weekend!

Coffey's Visit to Bend Part 2

Coffey took some amazing photos while she was down here visiting. Here are some more that she took when Galen got home from his fishing trip and the day before at Shevlin Park in Bend. We had such a blast and are so happy that Coffs wanted to do this for us. Don't you think she should do this for a living??? Maybe actually get some paying clients! I am positive she can do it, and I'm so proud of her for following her passions. Love you Coffey!
This one has got to be my favorite, I love Galen's face in it!!

Coffey's Visit to Bend

For Coffey's birthday Steve bought her a plane ticket to come visit Ava and I (Galen is out of town on a fishing trip) for the weekend. As most you know, Coffey loves to take photos so we ran some errands and headed down to Drake Park which is located in downtown Bend and took a bunch of photos of Ava playing. The blue sky and colorful leaves were perfect for taking some pretty awesome pics.

Ava at the Pumpkin Patch

Well, I've been told I'm a bad blogger, and I admit it...I've just been finding myself with no spare time on my hands lately. I'm helping Galen out with doing some stuff for our company, so that's been taking up much of my time as well as just watching Ava 24/7:) Poor little girl has a double ear infection and pink eye at the moment, she's been pretty grumpy for the past couple of days, but the antibiotics are clearing things up fast, thank god! Galen got lucky as he left to go fishing yesterday morning for the weekend, so he doesn't have to deal with our sick daughter...jerk:) The good news is, Coffey is coming to visit today! She'll be here at 7:30 tonight, I'm so excited to see her and hang out. She's planning on doing a photo shoot with Ava, so that should be fun.
Anyway, last weekend our friends Susy and Dan Weber came to visit with their 2 girls Addy and Eden. We had a blast, here are some pics we took of the weekend and at the pumpkin patch.

Ava's Bday

Hello all. First of all, I wanted to say CONGRATULATIONS to Fitz and Trav for finally having little Payton:) I can't wait to see more pics. What a happy day!

As for my family, we've been pretty busy. Ava turned 2 last Wednesday. I cannot believe 2 years have already flown by. She has been the light of my life and Galen and I couldn't be happier with our family. We had a busy week last week. Lolo, Dickie, and Tristan came down on Tuesday to visit for Ava's birthday. We had such a blast with them taking the kids to the park and the guys went golfing lots, lucky them. Why is it that the husbands always think it's their right to leave you with the kids and go golfing? Whatever. Anyways...we had a fun time. Saturday was Ava's big Birthday Party. Galen's parents came down to stay with us for the weekend so we had a very full house, but it was a blast. We had about 26 adults and 8 kids for the was a beautiful day so everyone played outside and Ava had the time of her life with all her toys and her buddies. I want to thank everyone who came and donated to the KIDS Center of Bend in Ava's name. Also, thanks for the gifts even though you weren't suposed to give any:) Anyways, here are some pictures of the weekend. Enjoy!
