Cody's Championship Game

This was Cody's second season to play in Sugar Land's novice hockey league. If you'll recall, last year, he was on the Green Dinosaurs and they brought home the cup! This year, he got traded to a new team...the Silverbacks. They made it all the way to the championship game, but unfortunately lost a heart breaker. Although they got 2nd place, they had a great season. Cody has improved 100% from last season (you can watch a little video of him warming up here). He's very confident on the ice now and it's so fun to watch him play. Great job Cody and the'll get them next season (which starts next week)!

Pumpkins, Peppa, & Pizza

On Friday, we went to a little pumpkin patch at a local church and let Avery pick out a couple of pumpkins. She always seems more interested in the gourds, which I find funny. We went to the same one last year and I was looking at pictures of our time there. My goodness, how time flies!



Saturday evening, Cody carved the pumpkin. Although hesitant at first, Avery jumped in and helped scoop out the pumpkin guts but mainly helped by holding the bag of pumpkin guts. Because this was for her, there was only one option of what we would carve: Peppa Pig! I still cannot get over how cute the pumpkin turned out. Cody did an excellent job! While he was actually carving it, Avery kept busy (for all of 2 minutes) painting her little pumpkin. She was pretty proud of it when she finished. Once it got dark, we put a candle in the Peppa pumpkin and admired it's greatness. Avery was not a fan of the candle and immediately demanded that Cody blow it out. She eventually got over it though and really enjoyed her pumpkin, exclaiming, "My Peppa pumpkin! My Peppa pumpkin!". 

After the excitement of the Peppa pumpkin wore off, we had pizza for dinner and then made a cookie pizza for dessert. Cody saw this on a website and has been dying to try it for weeks. It doesn't look very appealing in these pictures, but trust me, it was! Chocolate chip cookie topped with vanilla icing (dyed orange for a more festive feel), Reece's peanut butter cups, and Rolo's. Yum!

It's been a good weekend. A good weekend indeed!

Afternoon at the Park

It's finally starting to feel like Fall! We made it a goal today to stay outside as much as possible because the weather was just gorgeous. For most of the afternoon, we played at a park a few miles from our house. I really like this park because it has a ton of green space to run around and collect sticks, rocks, and leaves, which Avery loves to do. She literally had a stick and rock in her hands at all times. We did some exploring and found a dead end trail which was pretty neat. I ended up taking a ton of pictures because I just thought it was beautiful (plus, Avery is adorable). Sorry this isn't a very exciting post, but hopefully you enjoy these cute pictures of Avery :)
