Sticker Chart = Motivation = New Scooter

So Baby Ava earned lots of stickers potty training as well as sharing toys with her sister etc..... She would do just about anything to put stickers on her chart. So we decided it was time to celebrate her achievements and she wanted a new scooter. She has "earned" it!! Emma G however still has some stickers to earn for her scooter or bike, but I will say she is more motivated the past few days seeing her baby sister ride around on her new wheels!! Way to go Baby Ava!!

We went out for pizza at a fabulous place called Onesto this week to celebrate dad completing his course work for his MSPH (Master of Science in Public Health) from St. Louis University. He still has a manuscript to finish up and plans to walk for graduation in December, but this is a big accomplishment!! He will graduate with a 4.0 all the while working full time and keeping up with his full time family of girls :) :) :)! Way to go dad!!! We're super proud of YOU!!!

Lemonade 25 cents!!

"One man's junk is another man's treasure" the saying goes and plenty of people bought our treasures last Saturday at our neighborhood garage sale!! Emma & Ava LOVED selling Lemonade and would get a little upset when not every customer wanted to buy some! It was a chilly morning, so it took a while for their sale to take off but eventually it sure did!! They sold about 60+ cups and we were able to get rid of tons of junk!!! Yeah! Another garage sale success!!! All proceeds going toward a really nice camera. Emma & Ava are still thinking about what they want to buy with their money.....for now its safe in their new Piggy Banks!

Happy Cinco De Mayo

Hola!! We enjoyed a wonderful sunny Cinco De Mayo lunch with dad this year. We've found some pretty good mexican food in our neighborhood at Amigo Joe's and I must say a pretty tasty margarita too!! Emma & Ava requested "pony tails" and enjoyed wearing their dresses/shirts (you never quite know the size in mexico) mom and dad picked up in Puerta Vallarta!
