Tricycles and Chuck E Cheese's!

This last week when the weather was really nice, we went out and Avery decided she was going to ride the trike. She got right on, and started speeding down the driveway lol. No, it took her a bit. Her legs aren't quite long enough for the pedals so she can't push the trike over big rocks and things, but she's doing pretty good! She also fell of the tricycle at one point and got her first road rash lol. But she got right back on and kept riding! What a big girl.

Tonight we went to Chuck E Cheese for Charlie's birthday. Avery wasn't so sure at first, of course she'd just woken up for a 5 minute nap in the car which is never a good sign lol, but after a bit of waking up, and a LOT of sugar!! She was having tons of fun. Pappy held the babies for a while too. He was loving on Mal. Here are a few pictures, and a couple videos for everybody!

She wasn't so sure about this ride at first lol.

I think she started to warm up to chuck e cheese's after this car ride.

She even got to talk to Chuck on the phone!

Then he came out, and she was all smiles. I thought she might be scared of him, but she really liked him!

They are singing happy birthday I think right here.

Pappy with Layla and Mal. Mal is the one looking this direction.

Nice smile Pappy.

I love this picture. I don't think he knew I was snapping picture of him at this point lol. She was really having fun on this tricycle!She fell down!!! Here's her batlle scar lol.
and just a second later, back on the tricycle, road rash and all!! What a kid.

Pictures from my cousin

This last Saturday, my cousin Megan and her hubby Ted came to Granny and Pa's. Ted took a couple super cute pictures of the kids. I hope you don't mind me posting these Ted and Megan! They are just too cute not to share.

This was a pinata that my granparents had gotten. It was, at one point, an egg, but when it broke it split perfectly in two. I love this picture. Again, if you notice, Layla has the deer in the headlights look, and Mallory is very chill. lol.
Here are the five babies that were at the party on Saturday. All born within 5 months of each other. There are always babies in the Andrews family! From the left, Mallory, Eli (Katy's son), Ella (Megan and Ted's daughter) with the huge smile on her face, Brodie (my cousin Trisha and Darryl's son) and Layla.

Easter Saturday and Sunday

So Iknow I must be like the last person on here to post an Easter blog, but better late then never! Saturday we went over to my Granny and Pa's house and had lots of fun visiting with family and hunting for Easter Eggs. Then Saturday night we went down to Nana's and visited with more family! It was great, until Saturday night when Avery got sick on Nana's white carpet... not so fun. Then she got sick AGAIN on Nana's hard wood floor.. so maybe it wasn't just sweets. So we go home, and she gets sick in the middle of the night in bed. Oh man, I felt so bad for the kid! She woke up on Sunday feeling a little tiny bit warm, but nothing terrible, but her tummy must have still been upset because she had some not so nice diapers. So, Easter was fun... lol. It was really hard missing church on Easter. I even cried a little Sunday morning, but I knew I couldn't take her to church the way she was. Then, I hear about how awesome it was!! But it's awesome every Sunday.

Even so, with everything going on, we managed to have a decent Eater Sunday. Chad's parents came up to the house so we didn't have to drag Avery down town, and we ate a nice dinner, and she got her Easter basket. I'm so thankful for what God has done in my life, and in my family's life. On Easter, it only reminds me again of how powerful he truly is! The fact that he had/has defeated death!! WOW. Thank you Jesus! He is risen, He is risen indeed! Avery Sunday morning.. doesn't she look lovely lol. I don't think she was feeling all that great even though you never would have known by the way she was running around!
She loved these little windmills.

Saturday at Pa and Granny's. She was trying to figure out how to open her egg.

With her cousin Ella. Isn't she a doll.

I love this picture, something about the expression on her face makes me smile :)

This is just one I threw in... this is what happens when I get sidetracked with screaming babies and I'm trying to fill the sink with soapy water.

What a great big sister!!! I love all three of my girls. God has been so good to us. Layla cracks me up (she's baby on the right) she always has this stunned deer in the headlights look on her face LOL. And there's Mal, with a totally chill look on hers. So funny.

Terrible Twos and 3 month old twins!

It's been a while since I've posted anything so I thought I better get something up!! My babies are getting bigger! Avery is definitely a two year old!! She finds anything and everything to get into, and she's figured out it's not very easy for me to run after her when I've got to babies hooked to me lol. She's been making many messes. But she's also doing really well with potty training! Today she even went in the bathroom and got on the potty all by herself and went! Then she proceeded to get off the potty before Mom could go wipe her bottem... Oh well, she did a good job!

Mal and Layla are 3 months old now, and getting really strong! Just today Mallory rolled over from her belly to her back, and Layla's been doing that now for a little while. They are so close to rolling from their back to their belly. It's so funny to watch them try. They just need that little extra umph. Everything is going really well! I also go their pictures taken a little over a week ago and will be picking some out. If you want to see the ones that were taking, go to and click on "enter main site". Once in there, you can click on "proofing" and enter the password threegirls and you can see the pictures. There are so many good ones I don't know which I will choose!! If you want great pictures taken of your kids, she is definitely the one to go to!

Mal and Layla watching cartoons with Avery lol.

Yes, she is sucking her thumb. She doesn't like the binky now because she's only satisfied with that thumb in her mouth!! I love it. Layla is trying, but hasn't figure out how to open her hand up to get that thumb into her mouth. She's close though :)

This is Avery's lovely outfit. She insisted on wearing this little white tank top and pulling the straps off. What a goober!
