opening gifts for her sixth birthday

For Avery's sixth birthday, we wrapped up her gifts in brown kraft paper and tied each package with ribbon and yarn from each color of the rainbow.  She open her presents in order--red, orange, yellow, green, blue and last, purple.  Her final gift was a Lately Lily doll (definitely her favorite present this year!).  She loved unboxing her gifts in "order" and was so ecstatic that we saved the best one for last!

sending valentine's mail

Last week was such a whirlwind that I didn't get a chance to post these.  We got these great little mailboxes from from the beloved Dollar Spot section at Target.  Avery and Nate spent a ton of time drawing tiny valentines to go in their mailboxes. My favorite in Avery's collection is the one that says "Par Avion."
