I know I have been really slackin' on the blog lately, but the truth of the matter is there just isn't much to blog about. It is still FREEZING in Buffalo, and we rarely leave the house other than to hit the gym or the grocery store. So for those of you who are emailing and calling me to prod a new post, here's a look into our daily reality. Be warned that the following pictures are sure to contain lots of homeless hair, and crusty booger snot faces. ...Elmo, Mickey, and the Backyardigans prefer us in our natural state...minus makeup, and showers, etc. :)
Since the title of the post is Randomness, this pic was sure to fit. We decided it was high time we break our Thanksgiving wishbone, since it is February and all. I set it on top of the fridge on Turkey day, and there it stayed until last week. So we introduced the fun little tradition to Avery, 3 months late but she didn't care. I think she thought it was a little odd that we were encouraging to break something. It ended in a tie...so they both got their wish.

In more exciting news...Ezra and Avery took a little trip to the pet store and came back with a FISH. I didn't realize we needed another pet, but Ezra reassured me it was only 11 cents and Avery loved it! I asked if he bought it some fish food, and he said $3.50 was too much to spend on food for an 11 cent fish. So...we were just going to let it starve? That seemed a little inhumane. But Ez said " No, we can just feed it Chubb's dog food." I was sure this fish was destined for the toilet, but "NEMO" is alive and well after 3 weeks of puppy chow.

Avery has been a puzzle machine lately. She will dump all the pieces and put them back together several times a day.

Other indoor fun includes, pushing around virtually anything in her little stroller. The stroller was initially reserved for babies or stuffed animals, but lately she will push just about anything. Can't find the Tv remote, not to worry Avery has taken it for a walk in her stroller. Yesterday, she was pushing it around saying, Eeww, Eeeww. I didn't really think anything of it until she strolled into the kitchen pushing a giant dust bunny from under the couch. Awesome.
Last week was extra fun, because Avery got lots of Valentines' gifts and cards in the mail from the fam. She loves to open things and this was definitely more exciting than the junk mail that I usually give her to open. Thanks again everyone for making her V day special!

Avery with her favorite Valentines' treat...Chocolate.

More Chocolate, Sweet!
Everyday includes watching cartoons with Elmo and Mick-mee.

Yay for the update! No worries, i'm awful with the whole updating thing too...but yeah Ave's cute little belly is fantastic- she's working it in the stroller pic! You should beat the cold and come back to the PNW for a visit- at least it's 40 degrees there and raining rather than snowing :) Miss you guys!
