Mom's Visit

I enjoyed spending a week with my Mom recently! My Dad went on a fishing trip to FL, and he dropped my Mom here on his way down! We only got to see Dad as he dropped her off and picked her up- but it's better than nothing, right?
We got to do some fun things while she was here- we took her to the kids' karate class, and she got to go on the floor as Avery's assistant- here they are practicing her axe kick:

Remember that pinecone bird feeder wreath we made? (see blog entry below) Here is Mosby stalking a squirrel who is helping himself to the birdseed and peanut butter! :)

Then on Wednesday night, Dan treated my Mom, the kids and me to a WONDERFUL dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse! Yummmmmmmm......

The family before we left

Alex all dressed up... He's getting TOOOOOOO BIG! He looked wonderful!

Here's my little Avery before we left for dinner. She was under the impression that celebrities are always at Ruth's Chris, so she wanted to dress like one. She was animal print head to toe, with a faux fur purse and sparkles in her hair. Ooh-La-La! :)Courtney was beautiful. She is also getting WAY too big. She has a special scarf in her hair that her Aunt Liz got when she was in Ireland. She gave it to Courtney on her last visit.

Courtney enjoyed her meal! It's almost impossible to get this kid to eat, so that's pretty impressive!

Avery got her fill of a tomatoe mozzarella salad. Right up her alley!

After her meal, we found Avery at the corner of the table, very cafefully considering the wine list. :)

Alex ate his weight in salmon and steak. He never ceases to amaze me!

We had a WONDERFUL TIME!!!!!
