Random pics again...

Ava and Harley came to work with me last week and they were so good! Ava fell asleep of the conference table watching cartoons and eating candy corns. She has also been into dressing herself a lot lately and they are crazy outfits.

Harley is such a happy girl so I try to take pictures as much as I can. She was in her bouncer this morning and she was just smiling away and again in her bumbo last week. She is seriously such a good baby. Five nights out of seven she sleeps all the way through the night. She is my good sleeper, Ava still wakes up at night!

Some of my latest baking projects...

Jessica, my sister in law had her baby shower 2 weekends ago and the theme was apples and fall colors. Holly and I decided to make brownie bites that looked like apples and a apple spice cake that had fall colored daisies on it, I also decided to dip some cookies in red candy coating! It turned out really cute I was really happy with them.

It was Chad's birthday on Sept. 24th so Holly and I decided to make a cake for his birthday. He loved black so this was the perfect cake for him.

The heart cake is from my fondant class. I just wanted it to be bright and fun!

My dads bday was Sept. 1 so Holly and I made pistacchio cupcakes, they were yummy. We brought them up to the cabin with us to celebrate his day!

And the pink strawberry cake is one I made for my office, it was strawberry lemonade flavor, really yummy!

Oh yeah and Nate's birthday cake. He is a Dallas Cowboy fan so I made this just for him! He loved it and Ava was so excited to show him it as soon as he walked in the door!

I have had a lot of fun doing these cakes, it is something that I have recently enjoyed doing!

Misc. pictures

A couple weeks ago we decided to get Harley's ears pierced just like we did with Ava. She did really good, she only cried for 2 minutes. She looks so adorable too with her flower earings in.

Ava and I did another craft last week, we made apple pronts for an apple tree. We used her arm as the tree trunk and she loved getting her arm painted.

Grace was in town a couple weeks ago too so we had a friend get together with the wives and kids here is all of the kids on our couch and there are 2 more on the way.

The other picture is of Harley in her swing, if you look closely she is sucking on her middle finger and ring finger. She does this alot and it is so cute! She is getting so big. I weighed her today and she was 15lbs.

Gilcrease Bird Sanctuary

A couple weeks ago our playgroup went to the bird sanctuary. Ava had fun and she really loved all of the animals. She even dragged along her "baby monka (monkey)" with the carseat and all.

Labor Day pictures... long over due

We went to our families cabin over Labor Day weekend. It was such a nice break from everything. Beau built a zipline, that Ava hated! Beau and my uncle Kirk provided music around the camp fire for us, they kids had a scavenger hunt and we went fishing and shooting!

All in all it was a really good weekend, except for the fact that Chad was not there with us this time, he was with us in spirit though. That was Chad's favorite place to be and he loved spending time in the mountains and with our family.

Ava and I made a fall tree with her hands as well. She thought this was so fun!
