    I rarely have a week day off. I rarely have a day where I do NOTHING around the house. I knew I wanted to enjoy myself with Ava and friends/family. Curtis had to work this weekend so we were flying solo. Saturday we spent the day with our cousins. Great time! Sunday we spent the day with my parents and my girl friends. Last, Monday we went to this really cool park called Spruce Street Harbor. It’s really cute but was packed!! I went with my cousin and her kids and my gfs met us there. I loved it. One it was time away from house work, and work in general. Two I kept Ava up and she did pretty good. I had an amazing weekend which is making me look forward to this summer!!

    I am still trying to get through all of Ava’s gifts. Everything is appreciated and we are so thankful for the time and gifts that were given to us during Ava’s Birthday Celebration month. LOL She got lots of clothes, toys, gift cards, cash, birthday cards, etc.

    We are not and never have been materialistic people. The best gift that Ava has ever received from our family and friends is their love & time.

    Thank you to everyone who thinks of her, loves her and make time for her. Again thank you for all the gifts.

    I was soooo excited that my grandmom was able to get Ava these books. It is really important to me that our children know the Russian language and books are a great source of education.

    Ava’s Fancy Party

    The fancy party took place at my parents home and they cooked up a feast. It was kind of like Thanksgiving in March. They have been amazing when it  comes to Ava. My mama cooks for her all her organic soups, cottage cheese, fruits, etc. My dad comes in every morning to play with her and she is obsessed with them. I love it and appreciate it more than I could ever express. Anyways here are some photos…

    Good Morning/Evening all!! I am sorry I have been away for a week or so. Ava turned one on the 23rd and we have been partying it up ever since! Finally the birthday festivities are over and we can snap back to reality and relax!

    Ava had 2.5 parties this year.
    One was on her actual birthday with her baby sitter, my parents, my brother and his girlfriend and myself.

    Her 2nd one was my side of the family, my parents hosted that one. The last one was Circus themed and for kids and my husband’s side of the family.

    I had this idea of a circus theme party and I ran with it. We had a clown come out, I made a ticket booth, and decorated with all the decorations I could find. I know she wont remember this but thank God for technology and photographs. Her dad & I will be able to pull out her album and show her.

    Gifts are still all over the place and I will post all the gifts when I have a minute to photograph everything.
