A house is made of walls and beams; a home is built with love and dreams.

There are some windows in! Looks like we will be closing at the beginning of January, if all goes as planned.
Don't mind Reese's adorable double chin, but look at those teeth! We started Reese on whole milk and she seems to be liking it. She also is eating anything and everything.
She apparently has her mommy's appetite.
This is the cutest picture of little Aves!
She is getting the most fun little personality and she loves to coo at me :).

Girls Just Want to Have Fun

Reese had her second ever sleepover with Grandma Jill on Saturday night. They did all the fun things that girls do... stayed up late, ate some yummy food, and watched Mickey Mouse.

Ryan and I went to a Staniak friend's wedding. It was a great time. Just me and the Staniak men...

Well, This is Squirrelly...

Reese and Noah spent a majority of the day playing on the small landing. I think they were planning their escape!

Meanwhile, Avery was just chilling.. happy as can be!

So, the bouncy chair is out for little Avery. Well, Reese thinks that since it was hers she can do whatever she likes with it. Her latest move is climbing on and standing in it... she is a monkey!

Lastly, here's my video... Noah, Reese and I were enjoying lunch in the kitchen when I heard this odd noise coming from the backyard. I wasn't sure if it was a cat, a crow, ???? Well, this is what I found. I would have never guessed it! Just another reason for squirrels to be creepy.

The purpose of fun is to have it

First thing to report... Reese's top middle front teeth broke through. She will no longer have to be a vampire for Halloween! She is now up to 7 teeth!

We had a mini camping trip at the "Foley Lake House" on Saturday. We played bags, Ryan grilled, and we had a campfire with s'mores. Some peeps were brave enough to sleep in tents, while Reese and I joined others in the warm indoors!

Our little Avery Kathleen was baptized today. She did great and looked so adorable!

Here's the house update as of 9/15... it's really coming along!

Mom's 50th Surprise party was a hit! She had no clue, so it was perfect.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY! (and the weekend summary)

HAPPY BIRTHDAY to the most amazing Mom in the entire world!!
Thank you for taking such good care of us and being so wonderful. We can't wait for out BIG celebration this December in Disney!

This weekend we had a great time. As usual, there wasn't quite enough time, but we had a blast.
We checked out the Green Bay Zoo, played cards and hung out with friends.
Here's Reese at the zoo!

Brian, watch out, Amie may have found a new man!

Friends Forever!

Madisyn was so nice to share her toys with Reese. They especially loved playing with the rings. Reese seemed to always want the orange and blue rings, while Madisyn is sitting here with a green one. Do you think that maybe Reese is going to prefer the BEARS? :)

Here is Simon. We are always checking out his blog and finally got to meet him in person. He is such a cutie and has beautiful eyes! (too bad you can't really see them in this pic)

Courtney made friends with the llama.

... and a little more playtime fun!

Fun in the Sun.

Our weekend was filled with all sorts of fun. I think every weekend should be 3 days long! Here are a few of the highlights...

Reese enjoyed her first picnic. She was glad her Auntie Carissa was there to play!

Reese got a walking toy! She is getting better and better each time she tries.

We went bowling. Each team had one win and we all got better as we went along.
Auntie Carissa, Eileen, and Reese. What a cute bunch of ladies!

Here's Dave! (You made it Dave... you are now famous)

Reese enjoyed the sun at Septemberfest where GrandmaK played the piano!

Here she is showing off her amazing talent. If you look closely, you can see that she is sitting on a child's booster seat. The chair was too low without it.It was SO hot out. We were all so sweaty.Avery took advantage of the little shade she could find from the stroller.

I wish I could catch every moment of these two on camera. They are just so adorable together...

A couple more notes...

Happy Birthday Grandma Jill!!!! Can't wait to see you and celebrate.

Uncle Jason, Can't wait to see your new place!
