We're Off

If you don't already know, we are moving back home!  Well, to my home that is.  We are leaving Indiana after a year and going to Maryland for a year.  Kevin asked for a transfer to Baltimore and was granted it so he will finish up his last year of TFA in Maryland.  To say I'm excited is an understatement... I haven't exactly loved our time in the midwest.  It's been a hard year mainly because I can't seem to find a lot of young people with kids to socialize with during the day.  Being alone all day, everyday leads to a sad little me.  I LOVE being around people and having kids for Joshua to play with.  But, just to make things clear, Indiana could be a blast!  The children's museum is amazing, there are some fun parks around us, and lots of yummy restaurants.  So, I'm not blaming Indy, just the lack of fun moms in the city.  If we could've lived in Columbus, an hour south, where our family and friends are, I would love the place!

Anyways, we're off to Maryland on Saturday and then to vacation in Seattle for the 4th.  We'd love to have DC visitors for the year we're there!

Avonlea Pearl: Blessed

On Sunday, May 22, our sweet baby girl Avonlea was given a wonderful blessing by Kevin.  We were fortunate to have Kevin's dad and my parents travel in for the occasion.  Kevin's good friend Graham and some friends in our ward were also able to be a part of the blessing.  Avonlea wore my blessing dress and looked like a doll in it.  It was such a wonderful day!


The luncheon.  


The decorations, which were a headache.  I was originally going to use the fabric balls I want to put in Avonlea's room but realized that was going to be pushing my time limit.  So, I decided to make some tissue balls.  I ordered the tissue online and when it came the day before, it was the wrong color.  So, I went scrambling around town trying to find some sort of substitute.  It ended up working out but I was definitely a bit stressed! 




Joshua was not excited to interrupt his playing time to take a picture.  He usually loves his picture but he had way to many friends to entertain him!  


Beautiful girlie!  Seriously, she looks like a doll here.
