Avri is three going on 20. She talks so grown up and is so dramatic that I feel like I am living with a teenage thespian quite frequently. But she does do some funny things along with the exasperating and frustrating ones.
Avri's hair is getting so thick and long that I am having fun trying new and different things with it. This was my first attempt at french braids and I was pretty proud of them. I'm getting much better now, and Avri loves getting her hair done as long as she gets to put a ribbon in at the end.
I woke up a couple of days ago to this. Avri had found and unpacked all of her winter gear. She wanted to know when it was going to snow. Too bad we still have the AC cranked up and she'll be waiting for a while. The day before when I got up she had on clothes that used to be hers when she was 12 or 18 months old. She LOVES to unpack things. Every morning she says, "Come on Mom, lets go unpack something." This is part of the reason that it is going so VERY slow!!! The last time I moved I didn't have any help so it went much faster. At the rate I'm going we should be moved in by about 2011.
Avri had fun on the canoe ride with my dad and my brother, too. But she needs a little lesson in boating safety. She wanted to stand up and walk around the canoe; she almost capsized the thing a couple of different times.
This picture is proof that Avri can't stand to see the camera and not be in a picture. I took the one of Talmage holding Macie first, and then Avri had to jump in and be a part of it.
