the goin' ons of what's goin' on

This post will probably be the most random of my posts as of yet. And that's sayin' something. It's been a while, though, so I thought I'd post a bunch of pictures and just update y'all on the various things that have filled our lives since the last time I posted. This first picture is of Ava being a humming bird.
Jocelyn may hate me for posting this later, but for now she's pretty proud of herself. She's officially potty trained on #1. We're still working on #2. But that only means I have to change usually one pull up a day from her. I'm so stinking proud of her. And when I say stinking, I do mean stinking. Because like I said...we're still working on #2.
Teeth! These pictures were taken a while ago, so she now has two more teeth than what show in this picture. And let me tell ya. Teething has not been kind on us. Whiny baby galore. The funny thing is, is that before getting the top front teeth, her fangs on both sides on the top have grown in. Vampire baby!

We have grass! And it only took a year and 1/2 for them to put it in. Now that the weather is cold, we can sit inside and watch the snow kill it until next spring. Thanks a lot HOA. You're awesome.
This picture is taken by my dear Jocelyn. Every time she has the camera in hand, we're always ducking our heads to try to include them in the picture. Needless to say, we have a lot of crotch pictures. Kinda hilarious, but I decided to post one of her better ones. So this is me and Ava enjoying one of the last warmish days out on the back deck.
Rob has decided to take up cooking. He's made us various things, usually involving some sort of potato, but in this case, he made some delicious burritos. Yum. He puts way more effort into his meals than I do mine, since I usually wait until 4:45 to even think about what to cook. In most cases, the meat is still in the freezer, so I pull out the bisquick and we have pancakes for dinner. Who doesn't love breakfast for every meal? Anyhow, Rob's cooking is quite delicious. If I do say so myself :)

Jocelyn reading the funnies with Dad. She likes Garfield. If you look really close, I think the newspaper she is holding is upside down. :)
Ava is trying so hard to crawl these days! Maybe it's her gargantuan (spelling?) thighs that prevent her from actually taking off, but she is ever so close. Ready or not, Mom. Ready or not. I suppose that will be all for now. I have a billion more pictures from halloween and going to a corn maze, but who's to say if those pictures will ever make their way to the blog. I promise nothing. :)

We all dressed up this year (at my insistence!) and we all looked so freaking cool. Jocelyn was tinker bell, so naturally Rob dressed as Captain Hook to go along with her theme. And Ava was a spider, so I thought dressing up as a good ol' fashioned halloween witch would go along with her theme. We spent the evening taking Jocelyn around the neighborhood and visiting the grandparents. At some yummy chili and cornbread, and WAY too many sweets. A good time all around :)
