Avery's First Field Trip

Nic Carver- ROCK STAR

Rock star family.
Baby rock star.

The best picture my sad little camera could get. We sat in the back row because we were the only one with kids and needed a place for them to run around. This doesn't create the best shot for good pics though!
So my brother- in- law Nic opened for Charlie Hall at a concert at Liberty a couple of weeks ago, and the groupies that we are, went to see him play. He basically rocked the house and was totally awesome. According to Shane, even guys in the bathroom were talking about how good Nic was. For one night we felt pretty cool. Showing up for our "VIP" passes, okay, actually they were just little strips of paper in an envelope with our name on it, but it's the most excitement we've had for awhile! I got to hold sleeping Caroline for most of the concert until the 4 trips to the bathroom with Avery (during one song). Then we got to hang out with aforementioned rock star and family afterwards. It was a lot of fun and we can't wait for the next one in January. We're leaving Reece behind though, he wasn't that much fun. Avery however loved it. Once she found out that she wouldn't actually be up on stage dancing and singing with Nic the only thing that pacified her was that she got to wear her tutu over her outfit and dance in the aisle while her uncle praised Jesus. Pretty awesome let me tell you!

Happy Birthday MIMI!!!!!


Poor Sadie

Avery decided that Sadie was cold and needed to be wrapped up. She is the sweetest dog. Has never ever snipped at the kids and is very protective. She was a good sport, but I couldn't help wondering if she felt completely humiliated.

These pics are a little old I know. But we had Sadie in the vet this week for yet another leg injury and I was feeling nostalgic. She's doing okay. A badly sprained hip and is already showing signs of arthritis from her x-rays. For those of you that don't know- 3 days before Avery was born Sadie fell from trying to jump a fence and broke her leg. It was so severe (and she was only 10 mos old) that she had to have major surgery that resulted in a boneplate in her back leg. She has cost twice as much as a purebred dog would have been with her injuries, but she's been worth every penny.

Finding some cool new blog updates!

Isn't my new blog page pretty?

"It's like you can go shopping in here..."

says my hubbie after I got the closet organized. Is this not the cooolest handbag organizer you have ever seen. And if you know me, you know I am a sucker for anything that organizes anything. I found it at bed bath and beyond and Shane is hoping this stops the obsessive handbag purchasing. It does kind of feel like a TJMaxx when I walk in the door.

******Blogger is not letting me post pictures. I don't know why it is suddenly doing this.******
