It's Been a While

I know, I know it's been a couple of months since we've posted anything. I have a feeling no one reads this anymore because no one has bothered to remind us. Anyway, here goes the update.

In November Jeremy and I decided to take a trip to Florida for Thanksgiving. All month long we told Ava that we were going to go see "The Castle." She knew this to mean Cinderella's castle but that was it. She also mentioned Snow White almost every day. Other then the very chilly weather, we had a great time and are planning another trip some time in the fall of 2010. We spent most of our time there standing in lines waiting to meet characters. Our first character was Ariel, the little mermaid. Standing in line, Ava was singing along to the songs from the movie. We kept slowly moving forward in line asking her if she was ready to see Ariel. She kept saying yes and jumping up and down. When we rounded the corner and she SAW Ariel, I think she almost had a slight panic attack. She was not expecting to see the actual person. After this though she was great with the rest. We did have some difficulty with the other princesses though. We were the last ones before their break and the only ones left in the room with them. As we were saying good bye to Cinderella, Aurora and Belle, Ava started crying saying, "I'm don't want to leave! I'm not done!" The ladies felt so bad that they all tried to console Ava and Belle even gave her an extra hug. It was very sweet.

Most of you know we now have a cat. Ava has been asking for one for months and after Jeremy saw how she acted around Nicole's cat he agreed we could get one for Christmas. Ava asked Santa and now we have a cat, Steve. We named HER after our favorite comedic actor, Steve Carrell. For the most part she is a great cat. She has had a few accidents but now she is well trained to use the liter box. She is very social and she seems to love all of us, even Sassy at times. They are starting to play together some but Sassy is very jealous and feels the need to protect both her food and Steve's.

Christmas was great. We spent a weekend in Michigan with Jeremy's family and then the Sunday after Christmas my family came to us. The girls got lots of great gifts and outfits. Jeremy and I asked both sides of our families to only get one toy gift and as many outfits as they wanted. Some people respected our request and others didn't. After Seeing Ava's confused look to why her cousins were getting more toys Jeremy and I decided that they are too young to get more clothes then toys. We are not going to request this next Christmas or for their birthday. I will just have to purge more toys from the toy room.

Ava Update
When we went to Florida I forgot to pack pull-ups. Ava was having lots of poopy accidents and both Jeremy and I were very nervous but didn't want to go out and buy any. She had one wet accident and no dirty accidents. She hasn't had a accident since we left for Florida. We are so proud and relieved. She still insists on wearing a pull-up to bed but she has not been wet yet. We are just going to tell her we don't have any more when we run out.

Ellie Update
Ellie still has only 2 teeth, on the bottom. She isn't crawling yet but rolls ALL over the house as if she were. She says mama and dada but for the most part it is just gibberish. She loves peek-a-boo and will cover her own eyes until you say, "Where's Ellie?" Then she pulls them down and you say, "There she is!" Followed by squeals. I love it!

    I check your blog often, and am glad you updated! :) Also, we will be in Florida in October this year! My sister-in-law is getting married on the 8th. I know you both have jobs that would only allow for specific days off, but I wanted to mention it just in case.

    I check it too! Almost every day.

    AND I think Cori forgot to mention that AT LEAST Koleen and I and probably the kids and Mike are going to Florida while they're down there.
