The "Naughty Rug" and Make-up

Yesterday I left Avery in the living room long enough to refill Brutus' water . . . and she was eerily quiet. When I peeked in to check on her, I found her with my case of beauty tools. Not only was the case totally empty, but she was using the blush brush, tapping it on a mirror, then "applying" the make-up to her cheeks. She played with these brushes for a good 30 min, a marathon play session for our busy girl.

If you haven't been around Avery much lately, you should know that she has become Miss Attitude (by the way, I have no idea where she got this from). If she does not get her own way, watch out for a screaming/crying fit. For about the last month, when Avery starts these crying fits, told her to sit in "her corner" until she was done crying. This usually doesn't last long, but we made "her corner" more comfortable with the addition of a rug that says Sheriff. Of course she doesn't see the irony in the rug, but Bryan and I thought it was hilarious.

Avery laying on the floor crying in "her corner." Obviously, she was not having a good day. The crying fit lasted long enough that I had time to get the camera and capture this special moment.

and she must watch you put on your makeup everyday to know exactly what to do with the brush!

Hey Nicole- That's so funny that you found that rug. It is ironic :)
She is just so cute, it's hard to believe that she ever throws a fit :)

Hey- did you hear that Kerri had her baby?

I did. I saw some pictures . . . she is so cute-a lot of black hair. Do you have her contact information (phone and address)? I would at least like to take her my present since I could not make it for the shower. She only lives in the next town over! Crazy! I hope your family is doing well.
