Recycled Shirt Dress

Last year a good friend made some dresses for the girls using old t-shirts and attaching them to a skirt.  So cute.  So... I decided to try to tackle one myself.  Here is my first attempt at a long sleeve dress for Avery. 

I found the cutest fabric and thought it just needed to be a dress.  Whimsical and beautiful!  I'm excited about how it turned out, and it really was pretty easy!

Leaf Rainbow

We have so enjoyed the beauty of the fall this year.  The girls and I went on a "leaf hunt" to find leaves of every color and had Avery lay them out in groupings of color.  She had a great time making a "rainbow" of leaves.

Spa Time

The girls and I decided we would do a little foot soak and paint our toe nails.  They LOVED it!  And I have to admit that I did too.  The best part was when they asked Brian what color he wanted his toe nails to be.  (He didn't get his painted... this time)

I Am The Rockstar

Check out this note that Avery wrote to her teacher...

Enjoying The Front Porch

I just had to capture this picture.  Brian and Madi just sat there enjoying the cool morning air.

Go Little Puppies!

Avery's soccer team this year decided that their team name should be the "Little Puppies."  Fierce, I know.  Our first game was a face off between the Little Puppies and the Pink Cougars.  You can guess who won.  I'll just say that our team has improved from the first game!

Other than a lame team name, Avery is having a lot of fun playing this year.  She is a great encourager of her teammates, has started to engage with the ball more, and smiles the whole time.  And if she's feeling in the mood, she does a little jig on the field when the ball goes by her.  Pretty cute.

So... go Little Puppies!
