Aunt JoAnn

Jeremys Aunt JoAnn came over this week. She lives in Washington. So these are a few pics that we took when she was in town.

Ashley and her Grandparents
Ashleys chore chart. I dont know the correct age to start chores, but I think Ashley should start ASAP, I dont want her to be like me, I want her to grow up knowing how to clean and work hard I dont want her to be married and then try to learn how to like what I am doing now. So these are her chores. She gets paid 5 cents per chore and if she does all of them she will earn 25 cents a day, then from that I want to teach her about tithing, saving and spending. Then whenever she wants a toy it will come out of her money.

Docters, Christmas and the after christmas snow

Ashley went to the Drs on Christmas eve. It was her two year check up. She now weights 28 pounds and is in the 75 percentile for weight, She is 3 feet tall, which is the 90th percentile, and she is in the 80th percentile for her head size. Still cant believe I have a two year old I feel way to young to have a two year old. Right now I am learning how to deal with a two year old. She can be the sweetest angel one day and then she can be the worst little brat the next second. Not quite sure how to handle that!

We have been loving Christmas! We had a pretty easy day! We stayed home for Christmas and it was so nice! Ashley decided that she wanted to wake up to see what Santa had brought her, So we got up and opened up presents at our house, Then we went up stairs and opened up presents at my moms house. We also had a yummy breakfast! Thanks Mom! It was strawberry waffles and eggs and sausage!
Here is what Santa brought Ashley for Christmas!
Ashley picked out the stroller right off the bat and loved to drive it around!
We really need to put a pedometer on her stroller to see how many miles she goes every day! That stroller goes every where with us. She LOVES the stroller!
Ashley is opening up her first present of the day
Opening a present from grandma
Grandma gave Ashley a new shovel for Christmas, She got it and the first thing she did was try to shovel up the wrapping paper.
Grandma gave Ash an new had and gloves, it was so cute she went to put it on all by her self and she put it on backwards, it was so cute I had to take a pic of it!
Yet another present from Grandma, Tickel me Cookie Monster She thought it was so cute that she had to get down on the cookie Monsters level to watch it go!
Very cute toy! Noisy but cute
Loves for Cookie monster!
In the afternoon we had both my brothers and their family's come over so we had about 15 people at the house and the presents so our house was a little crowded but I loved it! My mom mail lunch for all of us we had ham and potato's!
