Me and my babies
Another day...another drink!
Ava and her favorite person Faline (Nonie)
Ava and Duncan (Crumpa) Don't ask me what she's doing with the pine cones!
Another great outfit choice!
Colin explaining ET to Ava, she LOVED it!
Miles...I think he was a bit hung-over from the busy weekend as well!

So, the other day, Ava and I were giving Miles a bath, and Ava looked at me with a worried expression and asked: "is that his vagina, mommy?"
I said, no honey, that isn't a vagina, that's a penis. Boys have a penis and girls have a vagina. She just looked at me like I was crazy.
So, the next day she was taking a shower with Galen like she has many times before, and finally realized that Galen didn't have a vagina like she did. She pointed and said: "Daddy, that's your penis, you're a boy."
From then on, Ava has been telling every man she sees, from our neighbor, to the grocery clerk, that they have a penis cause they're a boy. Needless to say we've made a lot of men laugh this week! Silly girl!

I just wanted to wish a very HAPPY Mother's day to all you mothers out there. We have the best jobs in the world.
I'm so blessed to have such wonderful and supportive mother figures in my life. My own mom and my mother-in-law are two of the most caring, giving, incredible people. I don't know what I'd do without them.
Thank you Faline for all of the love and support you've given me. I'm so lucky to have known you and your family for such a long time, you've been like a second mother to me long before Galen and I ever started dating. You're an incredible person and I truly appreciate our friendship. Thanks for all of your help with Ava and with Miles, Galen and I are so blessed to have such a close knit family. You've been such a huge influence on our lives, thank you!!
I love you so much.
Mom, thanks so much for being such a HUGE help with the kids these past couple of years. I've been so spoiled since you moved down to Bend, I don't know what I'd do without you here. You're always willing to drop anything for us, your so unselfish and such a kind person. I've always been so amazed how you can turn any situation into something positive, and have never had anything unkind to say about anyone. You really are such an inspiration to me, I hope I can be only half as great of a mother that you've been to Kylie and I. I really can't begin to thank you for everything you've done for me, and for how you've made me feel so important and loved. You're the BEST. I love you love you love you. Thanks for being you!!

And this is her during our walk that day. She loves to carry her "Obama Flag" when we go outside (she calls the American Flag this, I really don't know where she came up with that but I think it's cause Obama (who's her favorite person) is always standing next to the flag). I personally think the snow boots go very well with the tutu.
This is what Ava decided to wear at my parent's house for dinner this weekend. It's my old dance costume. A good look for dinner out, don't you think?...
