I am only posting these items for sale on my blog because we recently sold our treadmill on Craigslist for a decent price, only to find that a friend would've been interested.

I am selling our office furniture.  I bought these three pieces 5 years ago at Crate and Barrel for $1,500.  I'm not sure what to sell them for, maybe $450???

I'm also selling this couch.  I bought it from RC Willey about 3 years ago. 
We never sit in it, so it is basically in new condition.  $150???

I need to get rid of this stuff to make room for my new office furniture that is scheduled to be delivered any day now.  So if you're interested, let me know.  Also, just offer me whatever you think is fair, I'm not really sure what to price anything at.

I Spy

Love this stage.  Ava is pulling herself up on anything and everything.

The pumpkins were sparse at the Chatfield Pumpkin Patch.
But that didn't stop us Scott from finding the perfect pumpkin.

Scott's Mini-Me

Deep Fried Oreos.  Tried One. Loved it. Don't Regret It.

After having a completely fried meal, what better way to finish it off than with sugar water?

Better keep an eye on these lovely's.

I've been trying to get Alec to ride a pony all year.  Today was the day!

There goes my stud.  Riding off into the horizon.

Ava 11 Months

My busy little Bee is eleven months.
Wants to crawl all the time.
Wiggles out of everything.
Steals Alec's favorite toys and slobbers all over them.
Hates being changed more than anything in the world. 
Wakes up every morning at 4am for a bottle.  We can't bring ourselves to let her cry it out. We're wimps.
Is starting to eat a little baby food.  Loves puffs, crackers and bread.

Any chance she gets, she is on the go.  Hmmmm, sounds a little like her momma. 

Charging after Cali who is hiding under the bed.

Spends much of her day at the bottom step.

Much to my dismay she has taken a liking to my linen curtains. These things took me FOREVER to iron.  But she is too cute to stop.  She and Scott crack up playing pee-a-boo in them.

Is a complete mess while she eats.

Best Friends

Alec cannot wait for "Princess Ava Girl" to wake up from her naps.
He barges into her room, scales the crib walls and smothers her with rough, tuff, brotherly love.

Lovely. Happy. Baby Girl.

Scott's good luck charms before the Bronco vs Charger football game.

Scott was in 7th heaven Monday night as he and his friends shouted, screamed, hoot and hollered as the Bronco's came back to beat the Chargers 35-24.  According to a sports article it states that:
 "Thanks to one of the biggest comebacks of Mannings's venerable career, his new team has the inside track at a division title."

Sounds pretty promising.

These beloved cars go everywhere with Alec.  As a result, he has had to learn to do many things with one hand and multi-task.

We have graduated from him refusing to look at the camera to these wonderful fake smiles.

There, this one is better.
He's still my cutest most favorite son, no matter how fake and cheesy his smiles are!

Last week we made the drive to Park City, Utah to attend Scott's brother Josh's wedding.
We're wimps and have never dared to drive anywhere over a few hours away since having kids.
The drive was gorgeous and not nearly as bad as we thought.

Introducing Alec to movies in the car definitely helped.

Wahooo, almost there!

We stayed at Scott's sister Summer's house.  With four kids, Alec had no shortage of friends to choose from.

Jayne was so sweet to love on baby Ava.

Easton and Alec.  Alec loved all of Easton's car toys.

Uncle Chris and Aunt Sena.

The brother-in-laws solving the troubles of the world over their morning sodas.

The day before the wedding the girls got mani-pedi's and lunch while the boys golfed.

The bride to be and her cute daughter.

The rehearsal dinner.  This was just one table of maybe 6 others. 
Future Hawaii 2013 group?!

Uncle Todd, the Baby Whisperer.

How cute is he?

Notice the candy bar in his hand? I had to bribe him to smile in the previous picture with a chocolate treat.   
(I seem to be doing a lot of that these days.  Maybe I should tone it down a little...but its just too darn effective!)

Having not napped for 4 days straight, he of course fell fast asleep on the 5 minute drive to the wedding.


I just may have the most stylish, best looking, sweetest in-laws in the whole wide world!  
(too much kissing up?)
Plus, I love 'em all.  I am always rotating my favorite.  Once I am done spending time with one I always come home saying, "So and so is my favorite!"  That is until the next time I hang out with a different one, then I come home saying that they are my new favorite. 

Sena and Chris

Heather and Todd

The crazy ones that brought our kids.
Adore this cute Adamson family!

                                                                       Nice paci, Ava.

Heather & Summer

Sena getting sassy on the dance floor.

Love this guy!

Chris is creepin'

Dancing the night away.

The wedding was beautiful, fun and tastefully done!  
Josh and his new bride Amy are two peas in a pod, and we are so happy for them and their cute new family of four!
