Things My Two Year Old Says...

These are some things Avery has been saying lately...

We always love asking Avery who all of our names are in our family. She knows Jordan and Sophia as "bubba" and "sissy," so we will say, "What's Bubba's name?" And she will say "Jordan Whitehead!" Tonight, with Jordan in the room, we said, "Avery, what's bubba's name?" She said unprompted, "He's my best friend." and gave him a hug. It made his NIGHT and ours too!

When we sing "Jesus loves the little children," at the part that is, "red and yellow, black and white" she says, "Wetta wetta back and white." Sounds alot cuter out of her mouth then it does with me writing it!

She is starting to learn boys and girls, and she always assumes a grown up man is a daddy and a grown up woman is a mommy. Tonight, she pointed to a guy walking on the street and said, "He's a daddy! He not Jason daddy." Meaning, not her daddy!!

In the car, she was trying to get my attention, and she said, "Mom! Mom! Mommy!" and I wasn't answering her. Then she yells, "JENNA WHITEHEAD!"

We always ask Avery how her day was. Lately, when we've sat down to dinner, she will say, "Hey guys, how was your day?" Pretty funny from a two year old.

Her new thing is to "not" confessing to things she "didn't do." So she will say, "I not hit Sophia" out of the blue, and we know that means she really did. "I not tear the paper!" and we will find torn toilet paper all over the floor. I hope that habit stays around a while!

When she goes down to bed, I will tell her, "sweet dreams!" and she will always tell me a different person in our family she is going to "see" in her dreams. I never once asked her this, just one night she started telling me, "I see Gigi!" or "I see Jenny!" So sweet.

Jason and I carpool to work occasionally and about 3 months ago, I brought her a cookie from the deli as a surprise. Every time, without fail, she asks me when I get in the car, "You bring me a cookie?"

Her Pops took her to McDonalds one day a while ago for lunch and every time she sees him she says, "We go to McDonalds?" Jason is trying to teach her to say it with a really sad face, not that she really has to twist my dad's arm in the first place.

Avery has a pretty big vocabulary, but sometimes, if you ask her questions and she is tired of answering you, she will literally look at us and speak gibberish on purpose. That's pretty funny.

That little stinker lights up my life!

It was a very good day.

I love it when God smiles upon us. I mean, He smiles upon us all the time. But sometimes, it's like sunshine, and Christmas morning, and rainbows, and babies, and awesomeness. On steroids. And I know that those times are not always permanent, so I learn to really wrap myself in His goodness, to take it all in, be happy, and just sit back and wait to see what He is going to do in my life.
We have been struggling so long. I knew it was only a matter of time before things would be OK again. Where we would feel a little stability. Where we would take all of the things we learned while struggling and apply then when times are good.
We have alot of great things going on in our lives right now. Some really great things. Some amazing, mindblowing, off the grid kind of great things. I wish I could share more, but for right now, let's just say that we are incredibly blessed with some great opportunities God is putting in our lives.
I leave you with a gorgeous picture of our biggest blessin…

What is Your Skin Care Regimen?

Since turning 34 this year, I've been really trying to make sure I am taking care of my skin. I have been using Cover Girl Liquid Powder for years, but it always seemed to break my neck out. And full disclosure, my face cleaning routine consisted of using Avery's baby wipes (which actually do remove eye makeup surprisingly well). So, needless to say, my skin didn't always look its best. So, I received some gift cards for my birthday and I decided to go ahead and spring for some better products. First thing I did was get something designed to clean my face. I ordered the Olay ProX Microdermabrasion System. This system came with the battery-operated scrubber with both a brush and foam pad, plus every day face wash and microdermabrasion wash to be used twice a week. I have really loved using this system. The beauty is that you can really use any face wash you'd like. I will probably buy a pore-reducing wash after the tube they sent me is empty. This system really exfolia…

Our Trip to Orlando and Universal/Disney Travel Tips! (Long Post!!!)

Well, we just got back from our trip to Orlando! And I am tired and sore, but happy and so very glad we were able to do this as a family! Most of my Facebook peeps saw our pictures, but I wanted to share about our vacation and a little travel tips for those thinking of planning something similiar! 
Use a Travel Agent!
First and foremost - I booked my trip, basically last minute, through the amazing and wonderful Lana Kluge . Booking through a travel agent costs you, the consumer, NOTHING. It doesn't make your trip any more expensive and adds nothing to your end bill. What it does do is add a valuable service to your vacation, and that's exactly what Lana offered us. She has been to Disney multiple times and was able to answer all of my many questions up to, and while on, my vacation. Even with booking our resort, we were able to ask where our room was located, as the resort we stayed at (Art of Animation) is very large and I read people saying they had to walk a very long way …
