First Movie!

Today we went to the movie, Beauty and the Beast with some good teacher friends. This was Alivia's first time in a movie theatre and she did great. However, she did not like wearing the 3D glasses at all! She did a great job sitting like a big girl by Ava. By the way, Ava is her new obssession. ha! She LOVES Ava so so much! Sometimes we have to remind her that Ava is almost 2 years older than her because she wants to do everything Ava is doing. Since Allison and I are best friends we love that our girls are so close. It is the cutest thing ever. We had a great morning at the movie together. Next time I will have to get a picture of all the kiddos. Deana, thanks for the invite. We had a great time! :)

Ava and Alivia already in a trance. Ha!!

They were holding hands. They are too cute!

Back to Class

This week was my crazy week back at school. Since this is my last semester of classes I decided to take a class early and double up on myself. I was supposed to take this class in May but with the baby coming I decided to try and get it done early. I am driving to Warrensburg on Tuesday nights and my other 2 classes are on Wednesday nights. I am carpooling to Warrensburg with 2 other girls from my cohort that are also having babies in the Spring. I am glad I get to ride with them every week. Well needless to say, I have been dreading this week having to start homework all over again. I just keep telling myself the end is so close!! Ben made this week so much easier for me. He kept things as normal as always, making dinner, cleaing the house, doing laundry, reading books with Alivia, giving baths and making this cute lunch below. I am just so lucky to have a husband that does so much around the house and never complains. How did I get so lucky? Ben, thanks for always being you and for being an amazing husband and father. We love you very much!

Happy New Year!!!

For New Year's this year Ben, Alivia and I went to Chad and Kristin's house for dinner with our kids. We had a great steak dinner and enjoyed playing with the kids. Jensen is getting so big and it such a cutie. The kids went to bed and we even got some adult time too. We are so lucky to have such amazing best friends. Thanks for being so wonderful to us. We hope everyone has a great 2012 year! We are so excited for the new things that are coming for our family. Happy New Year!!

Jensen opening his present from Alivia. Isn't he the cutest little boy ever?

Alivia opening her present from Jensen!

Alivia LOVES Jensen!

Alivia got a Tinker Bell Village and Jensen got a new walker!


Alivia fed Jensen his dinner, bananas!

After Jensen went to bed Alivia got a little slap happy and wanted to eat jello in Jensen's highchair! He, he!!

Will got some new burb cloths! I was so excited to get our first boy item! :)

Cleaning the basement

The last couple of days Ben, Alivia and I have spent downstairs reorganizing the basement for all of Alivia's toys since we don't have a playroom upstairs anymore. We are so excited to begin the next phase of our basement this month! We are hoping to have the entire thing finished by May when baby Will arrives. We are keeping our fingers crossed. For now, we just laid down some rugs so Alivia can still play with all of her toys downstairs. I didn't realize how many we had until we started pulling them all back out again. She loved playing with the baby toys too and would get so excited when she saw something for Will. It was a fun family project. Can't wait to have this finished soon! :)

Some of her toys tightly squeezed in here!

She LOVES getting some of the baby toys out for Will.

Ben didn't realize how many tubs of Alivia's clothes I had downstairs! lol!!!

Having fun riding her car with her doll!
