Stay at home moms.

"What do you do all day?" "Don't you get bored?"
I get asked these questions all the time. Well, Wade and I do lots of stuff (and now I get to do stuff alone when Wade is at school, whewho). Today for instance we had our weekly playgroup, which was a fun Halloween party where the kiddos dressed up. It was so much fun to see all the kids in their costumes.

I feel so fortunate to be able to stay at home with Wade. We do get bored sometimes and I do miss work, A LOT!, but it will all be worth it. I sometimes get jealous of my friends with jobs who get to go out in the real world, wear real clothes, and have real adult conversations (not talking about the kids, birth, or breastfeeding). But just like they are confident in their decision to go to work I try to be confident in my decision to stay home.

Anyway here are a few fun pictures from today.

Oh and a few of the cookies I made for the party.

Avery's visit

My niece Avery came to stay with us for 2 weeks a little while back and we had so much fun with her here. We had a girls day one day where I took her to Bridgeland's Nature Fest. We had so much fun. She loved the pony rides there, the petting area, and the Indian teepee.

Avery and Wade played so well together. She loved to drive Wade all over the house on one of his ride on toys. Wade climbed onto the open dish washer one day and got upset when Avery told him "no no". She thinks she is a little momma (with two little sisters, she kind of is). She was a big help while she was here.

Wade just loves his cousin, Avery, and I think she has tons of fun here too. We love having her hear. She can be a little bit of a pill sometimes, but this visit went exceptionaly well. She was such a good girl. Here are a few pictures of her time here with us.
