Edward's Child

Yes, I did read the entire Twilight series while I was pregnant with Hayden.

My Baby is FOUR!!

Avery's birthday consisted of festivities lasting a whole week.

Party at the Jacobs' celebrating hers and three other cousins birthdays. This is my favorite picture-I love her little grin!

Princess Cupcakes

Aren't they the cutest?!

Avery's pals. They were all dressed up and ready to party!

The day of Avery's actual birthday, we took her to High School Musical 3 (which her and I LOVED, dad on the other hand was a good sport and tried to act excited). Then we went to the Mayan for dinner. It was a fun day! Earlier in the week we celebrated with the Allen clan.

I can't believe Avery is four already! She is the sweetest girl and is always concerned about others (I hit my funny bone a couple months ago and she still prays for me every night in her prayers. I still laugh every night when she blesses my elbow). Avery is the best sister to Hayden calling her her "little sweetheart" and giving her hugs all day. She's such a little crack up and keeps us laughing everyday! We love our Avery!

...and I am so lucky to have them!

Shannon, Heidi, Lacie, me, Kristin

Some of my best friends from jr high and highschool. I still feel so lucky to have had these girls in my life! They were great examples to me and still are! I wish we could see each other more often, but when we get together, it feels like not a day has past! Love you guys!

No beard for me please...

A common request in our family prayers is to "help us be like Jesus". After prayers the other night, Avery informed me that she, in fact, does NOT want to be like Jesus. A curiosity set in and I immediately asked "WHY!?" Avery said "well, Jesus has a beard!" I had to about shove my face in the pillow to keep from laughing. I explained to her that being like Jesus doesn't have anything to do with our looks, but our actions. She listened, but responded with "but mom, he still has a beard." What do I say to that?
