Insta-Friday :)

Happy Friday, y'all! 
We had a good week this week, but I am so glad it's Friday!  It's my favorite day, I think.... well maybe Saturday and Sunday are my favorite... I don't know, but yay for Friday! 
Here's a peek at our week...

Kind of a proud moment... I ran 18 miles last week!  Yay!  I am so thankful I can run again!  I have missed it so much.  

Coach and Honey came in last weekend to play with the kids so we could go out!  We had so much fun!!  Thank you, Honey and Coach!!!! 

Ballet Monday! 
Love this sweet girl so much!!!  

How much longer until spring?!?!  
Baby it's cold outside!!! 

They all insisted on holding hands walking Maggie to her class on Tuesday!  I love them so, so much!  So sweet!!! 

My favorite big boys reading dinosaurs books.  Love it! 

Thursday morning Hunter and Archer were having a great discussion on kindergarten while getting ready for school.  I love listening in on their conversations! 

It's so hard to wake this sleeping baby on Tuesday/Thursday to go pick up Maggie from school.  
We signed up for morning preschool for next year! 

My #throwbackthursday post.  I LOVE these socks!  I never knew a pair of socks could bring back so many great memories!  Best summers of my life!  

What do you do when its 25 degrees outside with freezing drizzle and possible snow later in the day... Go swimming at the YMCA!  They were so excited!!  We might have to go back and swim tomorrow!

Have a great weekend, y'all!

Yesterday it was beautiful!!!  Beautiful, I tell you!!! 
It was a warm 57 degrees... so nice! 

The kids were LOVING being outside playing on the trampoline!

They were having so much fun!! 

But we will not be jumping today...
Today it is 16 degrees.  The weather people said it was supposed to get to at least 24 degrees... yeah right!  It's COLD!!! 

How many more days until spring?????

Hooray for Friday!!! 

It's been a great week!  Here's a peek at our week... 

Archer is taking selfies... he loves taking pictures on my phone.  Love that sweet boy! 

I did some crafting this past weekend!  Love me some burlap! 

We had a great Monday with Hunter home!!!  I love it when he is home all day.  We had so much fun I did not take any pictures! lol :)  It was beautiful and warm for Kansas. 

But don't worry, just in time for me to take Hunter to the bus stop it was this temperature again. 
Really, Kansas?? 
I wish this was the coldest it was this week, but it wasn't!  I think the high yesterday was 19.  The windchill was -11 while we were waiting for the bus.  Crazy!  
I don't know if I'll ever get used to winter here... :) 

LOVE playing games with these two on Tuesday!  Candy land and Pizza Party! 

So proud of this boy!  Here is his picture at 100 years old!  He also had to write "Before I am 100 I'm going to... Play in the NFL, go to Disney World and be a vet!"  

Painting fun!!  We love painting over here! 

Pj night at Awana on Wednesday! 
Maggie pretty much thinks she needs to wear pj's all day everyday now.  She had pj day at school on Thursday.  

Hunter woke up saying, "Today is the 100th day of school".  He was so excited!  
He had a fun day and we had a fun morning at MAPS.  

Hooray for the weekend!  
Have a great one, ya'll! 

First Date

So one thing Ben and I have decided to do this year is to take our kids on a date.  Every month one of us will take one kid to do something fun and special.  So this month Ben took Maggie.  I think they were both really excited!  And to top it off Ben took Maggie to do something he absolutely hates... he took her to Build-a-bear.  Ben hates stuff animals and he hates spending money on stuffed animals, but Maggie LOVES her stuffed animals!  She has to take something, the favorite stuffed animal/princess of the day to school (it stays in her backpack the whole time).  She sleeps with whatever animal it is... she loves them!  

So off they went! 

Maggie had only gone to Build-a-Bear once and she was to little to really make anything herself. 

Adding some stuffing to her pony. 

I think they had a really great time!!  She didn't really care about giving her pony, named Maggie, any clothes or anything.  She just wanted her to be pink and have long hair. :) 

Afterwards they stopped for some cinnamon pretzels. 

I think they had a really great time!!  Maggie loves her pony and will tell you that she made it with her Daddy.

Insta Friday

What a week...  I don't know about you but we are ready for the weekend! 
It's been a weird week.  I thought last week was going to be hard, but I was wrong.  I guess the 2nd week getting back into the routine is when you feel it!  It's kind of like after you have a really good, hard workout and you are more sore the 2nd day than you were the 1st!?!  Eek!  Ben and I are tired of the discipline!  Ugh... that's the not so fun part about being a parent!  Oh well... It's Friday and its a great day! :) 

Here's a little peek at our week! :) 

Last Friday pic playing outside on the trampoline!  It was a little to cold for our sweet girl! 

Hooray for a nothing to do Saturday!  Let's go to the zoo!!! 

Yep, he was eating some snow!  We may have thrown a few snowballs at each other while walking around the zoo! :) 

I almost thought we were back in Texas on Sunday!! 
Spring, I'm ready for you!! 

Back to ballet this week! 
Ballet Monday! :) 

It's a Mickey Mouse play-doh kind of day with my Mickey lover on Tuesday!

Praying they all sleep in their own beds on Tuesday night!  

Our favorite Christmas gift is hanging in our kitchen!!  We LOVE the snowman painting Hunter made for us at school! Love that sweet boy of ours!! 

Made smore bites for the teacher's luncheon at Hunter's school on Thursday night!  I love these things! 

I finally took the kids to Toddler Time at our YMCA on Friday!  They had a blast playing in the cheer gym and to be honest... I felt at home!  I love gyms! 

I ran every single day at the gym this week.  That's over 13 miles!  I rewarded myself with a skinny white chocolate mocha!  Perfection! 

This boy has my heart!  

Hope you all have a great weekend! :)

Insta-Friday: Happy New Year!!!

Happy New Year, everyone!!! 

The kids and I have been away for Christmas break and just got home on Sunday, so it's kind of been a little crazy around here.  We LOVED being with our family in Texas, but it is so nice to get back into a routine!  I have missed it.  

Here is a little peek at the last few weeks... :) 

Sleepy boy! 

Why hello, Mr. Sam Houston! 

Just in case he needs to call a football play during the night, Hunter has slept with his football thing... more than one time, too! 

Back to running outside!!!!  WooHoo!  It feels so, so good to be running again!  
I hurt my Achilles over the summer and have been letting it heal.  I started running again at the good old Lindsay track!  Praise the Lord! 

A quick glance at our year 2013. 

Move date with this handsome boy! 

Punting field goals while I run!  
He LOVES football!! 

Fun at Coach and Honey's!  
We were looking for dinosaur bones! 

Do they look 2 years apart to you??

You can't go to the Frisco mall without riding the carousel 

Such a fun time wedding dress shopping with my BFF, Kelly!  Miss these girls so, so much!!! 
Can't wait til October!!!

This is what we came home to on Sunday! 
Not in Texas anymore! 

All my angels in the snow! 

The temperature when we woke up on Monday! 
So glad Hunter did not have school until Tuesday! 

Back to school! 

Our small snowman!  The snow was to dry and would not pack, so he is kind of small!! 

Someone else was glad we were home! 
Yes, Kiddo sleeps with Maggie almost every night! 

Running with my new shoes at the YMCA!  
I'm trying to love the treadmill!  It's just to cold to run outside here! 

Love watching and hearing them play together! 

We are so glad to be home and back together as a family and guess what??  It's supposed to be in the 50s this weekend!!  WooHoo!!  Never thought the 50s would be warm.  We are headed to the zoo this weekend!  

Have a great weekend, ya'll!!
