Christmas Parties and Plays Oh My!

Wednesday, December 19, 2012

Today was a day full of Christmas fun! Both girls had they Christmas parties at school. Me and Noah went and helped and he thought it was the best thing ever because everyone wanted to give him candy and cookies.
That night we had our church Christmas play which is always exciting. The kids did awesome!
And... Happy Birthday Mom!! I love you!!

Noah is still just as obsessed as before with trains and there is a little train museum in Duncan that has two actual train cars. One you can walk into and the other you can't but Noah has been begging to go. He loved it south he cried when we finally had to leave.


Monday, December 17, 2012

Noah has this newfound obsession with dirt on his feet. He looks between all his toes toes for "germs". I have no idea where he picked this up but it's hilarious.

Yule Log

Sunday, December 16, 2012

I love me some Netflix Yule Log!!

Santa! I Know Him!!

Saturday, December 15, 2012

Santa was at Cherry Berry this afternoon which is a double win. Yogurt AND getting to see Santa! The kids all told him what they wanted for Christmas and Noah even sat on his lap. I wasn't quite sure what he would think but he did great.

Daddy Daughter Dance

Friday, December 14, 2012

The girls looked forward to this all year. They love getting fancied up and going to the dance with their Daddy.

Jack Knows Who's Boss

Too sweet.

French Braids

Sunday, December 9, 2012

I have tried to learn to French braid for years. The girls love having their hair French braided and I have never been able to figure it out. I finally decided I WAS going to learn so I watched a YouTube video about 173 times and I think I have finally got the hang of it. Kind of.

OSU Game

Saturday, December 8, 2012

Mackenzie got to go with Jason and Deborah to an OSU basketball game today. She loved the alone time she got to spend with them but the thing she was most impressed with was the never ending supply of junk food in the suite they watched the game from. Oh Mackenzie...

Jack's Shenanigans

Friday, December 7, 2012

Jack shows up every year on December 1st and me and Jason have a lot of fun coming up with things for him to do. Tonight he was indulging in a little Diet Dr. Pepper!

Oh Christmas Tree!

Thursday, December 6, 2012

I have this ceramic Christmas tree my mom have me that we have had since I was a little kid. I always loved it and she gave to me several years ago. It was missing a lot of the lights and each year I never got around to replacing them because i had no idea where to find them. This year I got on Etsy and ordered some. Finally it looks complete!

Master Bedroom Makeover!

Wednesday, December 5, 2012

I bought a (long overdue) new bedspread and we painted out bedroom yesterday. It looks SO much better! I can't wait to finish the decorations! Clearly the kitties love it.

2nd Grade Christmas Musical

Doing My Good Deed

Monday, December 3, 2012

I hate giving blood but I try to be nice and do it anyway about once a year.

Student of the Month!

December 2, 2012

Mackenzie was chosen as the student of the month in her class in December. She was sick the day she was supposed to get her certificate. The poor kid seems to get sick at the worst times and miss fun stuff at school. But here is her with her certificate. We are so proud of her!!


Saturday, December 1, 2012

We took a trip to Dallas at church for the Women of Faith conference and we spent Saturday morning at the Galleria! I have never been and it was neat to see, especially at Christmas time.


Friday, November 30, 2012

My parents are coming to watch the kids this weekend and Noah insisted we get this gingerbread choo-choo for him and his Papa to put together.

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas

Thursday, November 29, 2012

We put up our Christmas decorations tonight and Noah is old enough to enter the "putting the star on the tree" rotation.

Little Reindeer

Wednesday, November 28, 2012

We got out all our Christmas decorations today and I always look forward to getting this guy out. I have had it since I was in elementary school and it always reminds me of Christmas when I was a kid.

Working Hard!

Saturday, November 24, 2012

We needed more firewood and the girls were not home so me and Noah went with Jason to help. Noah was so excited to help! He is so ridiculously cute. Jason cute him a lot of small pieces so he could load them. He has to learn all the skills now so he can take care of us when we get old!

Black Friday

Friday, November 23, 2012

I got a late start the year but nothing can keep me from my Black Friday shopping! I had been saving my sweet moolah for months and the bike I wanted was on sale so I finally got to get my bike. So pretty!

Turkey Trot

Thursday, November 22, 2012

I was on call at the hospital this year so we got to spend a Thanksgiving at home. Some friends had a Turkey Trot 5K and so we got or run in before we gorged ourselves.

Thanksgiving Break

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

The kids rarely have a day they get to sit around and do nothing. Mackenzie was looking forward to today so much an this is how she spent her entire day. Literally, no clothes.

Crazy Town

Tuesday, November 20, 2012

I have apparently lost my mind, I am still aching from the marathon and we are already picking out our next race and training schedule!

Big Deer!

Monday, November 19 2012

Jason took Noah hunting this morning and they got a deer. Ever since he has been obsessed with hunting and deer. He's a natural!


Sunday, November 18, 2012

I can't believe we did it but we did! 26.5 miles and Jason did 13.1. The course was so hard and hilly. About 14 miles in we were all hurting but we were determined to not give up. The whole last 8 miles I kept telling myself that it was the stupidest thing I had ever decide to do. But when I got to the finish line that all went away. It is such an amazing feeling of accomplishment!! We didn't walk and we didn't cry so I feel like it was a success!

It's For Real.

Saturday, November 17, 2012

We went and picked up our race packets today. Scary an exciting!


Friday, November 16, 2012

Kate has become my BFF lately.

Happy 8th Birthday Macy Blake!

The girls have been begging us to make more strawberry jam since we ran out a month or so ago. It's their favorite. Yum!

Last Soccer Games and Macy's Birthday Party

Saturday, November 10, 2012

The girls played their last soccer games of the season today and the weather was beautiful! We also celebrated Macy's 8th birthday with family. Macy wanted a cheesecake for her cake and she got a balloon animal making kit and made this dog. She's so good at it! It was such a great day!

Everyone Come and See How Good We Look!

Friday, November 9, 2012

I ordered all our new pictures from our photo session and got them all hung up this week. How cute are we?!

New Shoes. Womp...womp...

Thursday, November 8, 2012

I have searched high and low for new shoes (the fancy ones didn't work out). I wanted a different color so bad but none fit right. I HAD to have new shoes before the race so due to time constraints I ended up buying the exact same pair I already had. Oh well. At least I'm ready for the race!

Homework Helper

Wednesday, November 7, 2012

Noah likes to "help" the girls do their homework. And by help that means sit in the middle of the table and eat snacks.

I Voted!

Tuesday, November 6, 2012

I voted! It apparently didn't do any good but I voted anyway!

Death By Toothpick

Monday, November 5, 2012

A couple days ago I was cleaning and found one of the many toothpicks Jason leaves laying around. As I was headed to the trash it poked my finger and I didn't think much of it. Several days passed and it started to get majorly infected. I kept hoping it would go away but I finally went to the doctor today and it is most definitely infected and needed an antibiotic. Ridiculous.

Blister? Really?!

Sunday, November 4, 2012

I have ran literally hundreds of miles in my shoes and wearing the same types of socks and never got a blister until today, and I only ran 12 miles. I guess my feet were super soft from all our swimming over the weekend and that's what caused it. Boo!

Great Wolf Lodge

Saturday, November 3, 2012

Today is our last day here an we've had a blast. The girls had a great time celebrating their birthdays and we had so much fun getting to have some alone time with them. They are growing up too fast : (


Friday, November 2, 2012

We are having a blast at Great Wolf and this is one of Mackenzie's favorite parts, story time!


Thursday, November 1, 2012

We were headed to Great Wolf and there is a Fuddrucker's right down the road. It's one of our favorite burger places and we always go anytime we are around one. Yum!
