Avery - 4 1/2 months

As you can tell, I was feeling pretty bad.. Avery didn't mind, she just wanted on the couch!!
This is how Ben found Avery and I one day last week.. I've had a cold now for over a week, I can't shake it!! (that's a tissue under my nose)

This picture is from the morning after we left Bens family's house.. On this particular morning I didn't have to be @ work til early afternoon. I was sitting in the kitchen paying bills.. Avery was in the floor chewing on her bone, or so I thought. I looked over and didn't see her in the living room or on her bed.. I proceeded to walk through the living room, dining room, hallway, our bedroom, EVERYWHERE!! I came back around to the living room and just stood there thinking... I finally looked @ the couch and this is how and where I found her...

Big Mama aka Mary Ann (Bens mom) taught Avery to get on the couch @ their house. Ben has said all along that this would NOT be allowed!! As you can tell by the pictures, Big Mama won!! She's been getting on the couch every day since we left their house....

Avery on her bed in the living room.. we find her in the most random positions and places!!

Wes pitched three innings, he had two hits, with zero runs!! We are soo proud of him!! Since it's fall ball they are only pitching X number of innings.. We can't wait until he starts the season!!
Wes preparing to throw his first pitch..

Wes and his pitching coach.. he started the game and had a fantastic outing!!

Mom and Wes @ The Boardwalk in Shrevport..

Wes and I in Shrevport this past weekend!! This is @ The Boardwalk shopping center overlooking the river..

about time...

We figured it was time to update our blog..

Our lives are pretty consistent week to week.. work M-F, play with the girls every chance we get, watch football on Friday night and Saturday, usually make a run to Target, and church on Sunday.. accompanied by my Sunday afternon nap!!

Avery keeps us laughing!! She is growing every day, her personality has really come out!! We've been taking her to a puppy class on Thursdays @ the Saline County Fairgrounds.. the first two weeks she just sat there.. literally, did not move!! I was okay with not taking her back but Ben insisted.. by the third week she was walking on her leash and playing with all the other dogs!! If nothing else, she's got perfect attendance : ) We're going to post some new pictures of her soon!!

This past weekend mom and I went to see Wes pitch in Shrevport, LA. He did great!!!! We had time to watch his game on Friday, eat breakfast and shop with him all morning on Saturday and then head back to Benton.. quick trip but completely work it!!

I've loved watching Ambers creative side come out.. check out her blog @ she has some awesome ideas!!! She will be @ Old fashioned Day this coming Saturday, come see us!!!

I recently decided to cut my hair off.. I've got this habit of growing it to my shoulders and chopping it.. then I'll repeat that cycle.... Anna Williams (@ Genesis) cut it and did an awesome job!! I'm so thankful for her and her patience.. Thank you again Anna!!!!
