I suck at blogging...

And I'd like to say that I have a ton of excuses of why I haven't posted in what seems like forever, but I don't. I'm busy, but no busier than anyone else. I'm really just trying to soak up every ounce of Ava that I can because this little girls is literally growing up right before my eyes.

Last week I finally took her out to one of the local pumpkin patches around here. It was cold but we decided to go on a weekday to avoid the large weekend crowds. I also dragged my parents with us, because let's face it, Ava would probably pick doing something with my dad over me 9 times out of 10. That was definitely evident that day after we got back to their house as she REFUSED to come home with me, clinging to every inch of his leg and actually telling me to leave, she was staying with papa. Lord help me with this child.

Anywho here are some pics of the day.

Cheezing it up for the camera on the way.

Hanging with grandma while looking at the chicks and bunnies

Her hat's too small and her face is dirty but I love this pic.

In front of the "haunted farmhouse," which I thought she would totally hate. We had to drag her out of there after about the 7th time through. I think it freaked me out more than it did her.
With me on her very first hayride
Hanging with our pumpkin stash, waiting for the tractor to take us back.
With her papa on the way back.
Up next, my attempt to carve pumpkins. This outta be interesting...

She's a doll! Don't feel too bad that she'd rather hang with your dad than with you. LG is the same way sometimes. I think they just get bored with us when they stay home with us all day every day.

Don't feel bad & don't beat yourself up about blogging. I use to try to post at least 3 times during the week, sometimes I'd do more (back when Kendall wasn't so mobile). But lately, I'm lucky if I get a post up once a week! Our kiddies are what's most important~bottom line :)

Those pics of Ava are sooo cute! She's really grown & her hair is so long now & super cute! I think she's beginning to look more like you~when she was smaller, I thought she looked identical to Matthew. That one pic of you & Ava is totally frameworthy & y'all look identical, imo :)

Don't worry about posting~we're all here :) Hope you guys had a good Halloween :)
