Fun Day With The Girls

Saturday, January 28, 2012

Noah spent the weekend with my parent's (which he LOVED) so we spend Saturday doing things with the girls that are harder to do when Noah is around and sleep in a little bit!  First we went to the Chisholm Trail Heritage Museum.   Then we took the girls roller skating that afternoon.

We finished the night with Cherry Berry, which is the girls absolute favorite place to go.  Fun day!

I have said it before and I will say it again, I LOVE GOODWILL!  Especially the one in Chickasha.  It is like a goldmine.  I always find good stuff in there, especially for the kids.  Today I found a bunch of clothes, a nice blender for $10 (and I have really been wanting one) and a Wrangler pearl snap shirt for Noah that looks new!  And for how much.... $0.99!!!  Holla!

Kitty Cats

Thursday, January 26, 2012

This is where the kitties love to spend the evening once the kids are in bed and the house is quiet.


Wednesday, January 25, 2012

I bought some new dark wash American Eagle jeans and I noticed after I had worn them for a couple hours they were turning my shoes blue!  So I washed them and they turned my washer blue!  They had better be done or they are going back to the store.

Homemade Greek Yogurt

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

I have made yogurt quite a few times but we have become addicted to Greek yogurt.  I have found a way to make that now too!  It is so good and about 1/3 the price of store bought!

The Person Who Is Supposed To Be Watching Me

Monday, January 23, 2012

I had my eye surgery today and Jason stayed home with me today because I was supposed to have someone stay with me after my surgery.  I feel asleep on the couch and when I woke up this was what he was doing.  He was doing a great job taking care of me!! : )

Happy Birthday Karmen!

Sunday, January 22, 2012

One of Mackenzie's best buddies turned 4 today.  Happy Birthday Karmen!


Saturday, January 21, 2012

This is what happens when your 7 year old can reach the "to make" wipey board!

Toothless Mackenzie

Friday, January 20, 2012

Mackenzie lost her second top tooth tonight!  She was extremely worried she wouldn't be able to eat hot dogs for dinner (her favorite) but she made it through.  

My Promise To My Children

Thursday, January 19, 2012

I saw this on Facebook and loved it!  It's so true.

Perfect Mug

Wednesday, January 18, 2012

I have been searching for the perfect mug.  It has been found.  It holds the perfect amount of coffee and is super heavy.  Love.

Magi Quest

Tuesday, January 17, 2012

We played a round of Magi Quest and it was a huge hit with the girls.  As you can see Mackenzie takes her Magi Quest pretty serious.
Notice the wand holstered in her belt loop.  Serious.  Business.


Monday, January 16, 2012

One of Mackenzie's favorite things was the evening story time.  Tonight Violet came out to meet all the kids after story time and she was SO excited to get her picture made with Violet!

Dallas Aquarium

Sunday, January 15, 2012

We went to the Dallas Aquarium this afternoon after swimming in the morning.  The girls loved it.  Macy got really into reading the guide and the touch screen information by each animal.
 They both got to feed a cute bird a blueberry. 
There was a sloth just hanging out too!  He was munching on some celery like plant.  He was so cute!

Great Wolf Lodge!

Saturday, January 14, 2012

We got to Great Wolf today and the girls loved their Wolf Den room!

Blue Team Wins!

Friday, January 13, 2012

Macy's class is split up 3 different teams and have been competing against each other for prizes.  Macy's team won this week!  They got to wear PJ's and slippers to school today.  She was super excited! 

Best Daddy Ever.

Thursday, January 12, 2012

On the topic of dressers I decided the girls finally have so many clothes (and their clothes are a lot bigger now than when they were babies) that they needed separate dressers.  I wanted them to match so I ordered Mackenzie a new one.  Being the middle kid and second girl the poor kid rarely gets anything new, so this was all hers.  Jason spent a good part of the evening putting it together.  Sweet Dada.

This is MY bed.

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

This is technically Doc's bed but some nights Morgan takes it over.  Tonight I found them like this.  You can tell neither one is happy with the arrangement but neither is willing to move. 

Wide Open Spaces

Tuesday, January 10, 2011

Today I consolidated me and Jason's dressers and moved mine out of our bedroom.  It looks so much more open and roomy!

Poor Shubba

Monday, January 9, 2012

Noah has had a yucky cough the last couple days and the only thing that seems to help is his nebulizer.  He is such a good boy though and just sits there and does his breathing treatment without fussing.

Aunt Ray Ray and Her "Family"

Sunday, January 8, 2012

Mackenzie has been super excited ever since she found out Rachel and Afshean were engaged.  She keeps drawing pictures of Aunt Ray Ray getting married and now she has moved on to Rachel's future family.   4 kids!  No pressure Rachel, no pressure : )

Half Marathon, I Can Do It!

Saturday, January 7, 2012

Check out my fanciness!  I decided before Christmas that I was 100% committed to doing the OKC Memorial 1/2 Marathon.  I have been running quite a bit but I always do better with a plan.  It's the Type A.  And I am doing the Duncan Simmons Center Triathlon in February so I also need to be training for that.  I printed of several training programs and merged them and created my very own personalized training schedule to fit everything I have going on.  It looks great on paper.  Now I just have to stick to it.  1 week in and I am doing good so far!

Don't Look At Me, I'm Hideous!

Friday, January 6, 2012

Noah woke up a little on the grumpy side from his nap.

Beautiful Chicken Eggs

Thursday, January 5, 2012

I love our happy chicken eggs.  We only have 3 right now so they don't lay enough to keep up with how many we eat.  I always buy organic free range eggs from the store but side by side you can see how much better our eggs look (ours are on the left).  So much brighter and more nutritious!


Wednesday, January 4, 2012

This is what Santa brought Noah and he loves it!

Lost and Found

Tuesday, January 3, 2012

I HATE when I lose things.  Like HATE.  It drives me absolutely crazy, much more so than normal.  And I rarely lose things.  But right after Christmas I lost a very much wanted Kindle gift card from Deborah.  And I had a brand spanking new Kindle in desperate need of some sweet moolah.  Thank goodness the "clean out my entire house because it's January" bug hit me and I found this inexplicably crammed in a cabinet in the kitchen.  So glad I found it!

That's SO Mackenzie

Monday, January 2, 2012

I found these little figurines all perfectly positioned on the table today.  She just cracks me up with all her "people".

Better Late Than Never...

Sunday, January 1, 2012

But better never late.  I have decided to take up my blog posting again.  I missing taking all the pictures of our daily adventures and without a motive (like blogging) I don't do it.  So what better day to start than first day of the new year?!  This is our New Years Eve dinner (which rolled over into New Years Day) that our wonderful friend Savannah helped us cook.  She had all these amazing Chinese recipes.   We had egg rolls, breaded chicken, won tons and sweet and sour sauce.  It was amazing!  We had an all day Harry Potter marathon, lazed around the house, and made Chinese food for dinner with all my favorite people.  It was seriously the best New Years yet!
