We got donuts one day (we maybe get donuts twice a year now), and this was on our bags: “It’s all good!” If only donuts made me feel as good as they taste! Cracked me up though… as if they knew you’d have buyer’s remorse, they had to add a little extra encouragement on the bag: “It’s all good!” Made a Monday a whole lot more fun a few weeks ago!
My baby is growing up!
Rose drew her first monster with her shoes on backwards. Maybe that gave her her inspiration!
Anna Kate’s awesome class this year!
Susie always sends me the sweetest pictures of Anna Kate and Malia at lunch!
My working girl!
Rose and I have enjoyed some one-on-one time this year. We’ve never had it before! She loves story time, and I enjoy watching her listen and learn!
If we have an errand near the mall, Rose knows she’s going to get to ride her favorite: the “carou-shelf!” The carousel and my little pony are two of her favorite things right now!
What a goof! She was totally joking with me and not sad at all. She is seriously such a ham/mess/you name it!
Noelle’s cheerleading squad was lucky enough to get some awesome coaches for the second half of our season. We are so thankful to them for their service to our girls!
This was one of my favorite lunches this fall. The family met up at Gloria’s, and this young lady was having a birthday. Noelle begged to give her a dollar for the stack she was wearing on her shirt, and we snapped a picture. Love when out and about, we can all be a part of each others’ stories and have fun together! Life is too short. Try not to stay to yourself in your little bubble in your little family in your little world. We’re all in this together, and you never know what a quick smile or high five will do to lift someone up!
Cutie Kate with our family cheerleader, Mrs. Eubanks! Love you, girlfriend and the way you love our girls!
www.greatkidssnacks.com We subscribed to Great Kids Snacks last month to try it out because I was struggling to find healthy snacks for our girls for after school snacks. We loved trying things we would’ve never tried before and can’t wait for our next box. It is very reasonably priced and healthy. The things the girls don’t like, I will gladly eat. I think we hit on something great!
So be it! Let’s go face the world and be brave, people!
Fall teacher gifts just for a little pick-me-up fun! Occasionally, I will take a few #selfies if I feel like it. Today, I was like, “BOOO!”
Rose loves when we have a make-up errand! All the girls up there love to help her experiment… it’s super cute!
These two pics are semi-unrelated, but Mike and Jon definitely do their own thing! Jon has started a tradition of decorating, for lack of a better word, Mike at the office each year for his birthday… that’s what best friends are for, right!?!
Anna Kate and Malia and Rose with Braxton at school. And Rose’s shoes are backwards again.
Anna Kate had a blast at Katy Perry, and this is a throwback picture of Noelle at her first concert, Taylor Swift.
Mike had an awesome birthday this year and got to hang out with his best friends too!
Blackfish is a documentary with mixed reviews. If I’m following my heart and my gut feeling, I agree SeaWorld is not a good place for Orcas. I’m sad we ever went there as a family. Granted, it’s amazing to see killer whales up close and in person, but at what expense? Watch the documentary and come to your own conclusion. Some parts may be exaggerated but at least it’s another perspective to consider. And you can’t deny the science behind a lot of it.
Noelle made up this awesome hairstyle! We named it the dutch braided high cheer pony. Noelle loves to cook! She is great in the kitchen, and it’s a fun activity she and Mike do together (I assist too but it’s just not my thing, and I’ve finally gotten to a place where I’m okay with that. Traditional gender roles make no sense for our family. We delegate our tasks based on our skills and abilities, not our gender, which makes much more sense to us.)
I still can’t believe we have two girls in elementary school this year! Noelle and Anna Kate had a blast at the Fun Run this year! Here is Anna Kate with her sweet friend, Cori, and Noelle running her little heart out!
