Austyn's Baptism

Saturday, March 5, 2011 our princess, Austyn Claire, was baptized at St. Joseph's Catholic Church in Fayetteville. It was the most blessed and amazing day, complete with a surprise visit from my Grandparents all the way from Kansas City!! We took some family pics before we left to meet everyone for lunch at La Huerta, YUM.

Finally, We are HOME!

We are finally feeling settled in our new home. We still have a few things to do, but I can finally come home from work and sit on the couch without feeling like I have a million things to do to get the house finished. Here are some before and after pics. ENJOY!!

Excuse the lack of pillows on our bed, I had already unmade it and was about to get in bed...I did NOT want to remake it!
See my pillows in the corner, ha!

We still have some things to hang and some things left to buy, but it's beginning to look like HOME for the Avra's. Sidenote: I forgot to take pics of the guest bedroom. Will post them soon.
