Our Meeting with "The Big Guy"

I wanted to share a picture of Ava's tree. It is the only tree I put up this year (really the only decor I put up...). With everything that has been going on, I just didn't have the time or energy to get the tree and decor out of the attic, put it up, then try like the dickens to keep Ava out of it!!! LOL! She has already discovered how fun tissue paper is. I think I wasted a lot of money on toys this year. She would have been content with the tissue paper! HAHA!!!

I have ALWAYS wanted an all pink tree, and here it is!!! I think I might add some lime Green and maybe purple and turquoise or aqua next year. I don't know. We will see. I also would love to find a bright little tree skirt for it. Ideas on where to find one. They have some at Target that I LOVE, but they are all for big trees...

Her "A" ornament that a little girl and her mommy helped me pick out. They were random strangers. Yeah. That is how I roll...

Ava's Blackhawk ornament. Had to represent Daddy on there! :) They had only a few of these, and I bought them all!!! I really want to do an aviation themed tree someday. Maybe in a boys room. Or I could do a "Our Favorite Things" tree in our bedroom (when we have a bigger house) and do an aviation and theater themed tree! HAHA! I have ALWAYS wanted to have a tree in each bedroom. I don't know if it will ever happen, but we will see. I want to be "that" mom. :)

Cute little helicopter. I just love the whimsy of it.

Yesterday, Ava and I met our friends Amanda and baby Bella at the mall to get the girls' pictures with Santa taken. And Ava LOVED him!!! She was fascinated with his beard and YAY! No tears this year!!! We will see what next year holds. Although if her personality stays the same, she is very outgoing and loves people, so maybe we won't have an issue. I can't wait to see it....

This is the photo I picked. The kid scanned through them so fast, and took so many. And I only got to choose one. Ugh. I wanted them ALL. I loved the one where Ava and Santa were looking at the camera, the one where she is looking at the camera and he is looking at her. The one where she is playing with his beard and hat, and he is laughing. They were all precious. But there was a long line of tired moms and anxious children behind me. So this is the one I picked. It'll have to do I guess. :)

Have a wonderful week! Stay warm!
