Operation Christmas Child

This year we are participating in

Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child.

Basically you choose the sex and age of the child,

pack a shoe box full of goodies,

pay a $7 donation to cover shipping costs,

and drop your box off to be shipped to a child somewhere in the world.

{you can read more about the organization here}

I let Avery make all the choices.

Of course she wanted a girl the same age as her!

We then headed off to Target to fill our box.

What did we get?

Here's a peek... For about $25 we were able to get:

a pair of PJ's, two pairs of socks, a coloring book & markers, a slinky (pink of course!), a pink ball, some sparkly hair clips, a princess necklace, a small toothpaste and toothbrush...and if you know Avery at all, the box would not be complete without a My Little Pony! We also threw in travel kleenex, a pack of gum and some dum dums. :)

Here is Avery with the packed up box, ready for drop-off!

I paid my donation on-line so that we will be able to track our box and see where it ends up.
Can't wait to hear where it goes and learn more about the little girl that gets it.
This was such a fun and neat way to kick-off the holiday season!

BIG NEWS...Avery is a BIG GIRL!

So this is our big news...

Avery {finally} slept in her big girl bed last night!!!!Up until now she has been sleeping in her crib

with NO interest in moving out!
Then last night while we were getting ready for bed,
she said out of the blue
"mommy, I'm going to sleep in my big bed tonight"

She went right to sleep and slept until 8:30 this morning!!!!


Now lets hope she does the same tonight :)

Mommy is MIA...

MIA from blog-land that is!

Life has just taken over and having TWO mobile kids is keeping me super busy!

No time to sit down in front of the computer.

I am going to be getting on and doing some back-posts and trying to get caught up!

I will also be trying to stay more on top of things!

When I get the "old" posts up I will create a new post with links

for those of you that want to get caught up on our lives!

Bye for now!

But check back tomorrow...I'm hoping to have exciting news!

{at least exciting to us!}

Let's Do 52 - week 9

week 9: play
The theme this week was play.
I love this picture that I was able to capture of Avery playing with her two friends {Jade & Walker}. They were all huddled up on her big girl bed...I wish you could see ALL the toys they had up there with them. They were having the best time!!!
