On Wednesdays when I pick the girls up from school we go to the library and do their homework their and they get to pick out new books for the week before we go to church. We just started doing this about 2 months ago but we all love it. We are so lucky to have a FANTASTIC library in Duncan that is very kid friendly and has tons of kids programs. And it has been encouraging them to read more. Today Mackenzie was playing on the computer and Noah wanted to "help" which usually results in a brawl for one reason or another but today they were both being so sweet and patient with each other and sharing so well. I love those days.

One of our new favorite things to make is homemade marshmallows. They are so good and pretty easy. I made this batch green with mint flavoring and Noah insisted he help by licking the spatula. Such a good helper!

New Shoes

Monday, February 18, 2013

I saw these shoes a few months ago in Target and they just screamed Macy. She loves funky stuff like this. They were kind of expensive (for shoes she didn't even need) so I didn't get them. But I was in Target last week and I just happened by them and they were 50% off!! It was a sign!! She was so excited and loved them just like I knew she would. I can't wait for the day we can share shoes!!

Tooth Fairy Booby Trap

Sunday, February 17, 2013

Kenzie lost a tooth tonight and we have a little pillow that we use to put out for the Tooth Fairy. She wasn't trying to but she made it nearly impossible for us to get to it. It's wedged up on her shelf between 10,000 stuffed animals. Luckily Jason is tall and was able to crawl up there without waking her up, but it was a close call.

Yoga Time

Saturday, February 16, 2013

Jason got me this amazing new yoga mat for Valentine's Day. It so thick and soft. Love!!

When I Am Old...

Friday, February 15, 2013

I had the girls parent teacher conferences today and both of them are doing great! We are so lucky to have such smart kids. I guess the gene pool was in their favor! But outside of Mackenzie's class I saw this project she did. Kids are so funny!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Thursday, February 14, 2013

We had a great Valentine's Day starting with sweetheart smoothies, heart shaped sandwiches for lunch, and spaghetti and chocolate dipped strawberries for dinner. Jason got me and the girls flowers and they are so pretty!

Sharp Objects

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I was joking with a friend about the things that you let your third child do that you would have had a panic attack about with the first child. Example #1 - letting them cut up bubble wrap with the sharp scissors because it them oh so happy and quiet for a few minutes.

Back On The Road

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

I have been having some SERIOUS IT band issues and haven't been able to run very much at all lately. I tried all the stuff I could at home and it wasn't working. I finally went to the orthopedist and he hooked me up with some anti inflammatories and a steroid pack and I'm like a new woman!!


Monday, February 11, 2013

Jason and Noah got a little fishing time time in today. He was so proud of his catch!

Ninja You Rock My World

Sunday, February 10, 2013

I got a Ninja for Christmas and initially wasn't that impressed. But I ended up returning it for one that also comes with smoothie cups and they are the greatest thing that ever happened. LOVE my Ninja!

Harlem Globetrotters!

Saturday, February 9, 2013

We scored some tickets to the Harlem Globetrotters on Groupon a couple weeks ago and I was so excited to take the girls. And I'm not going to lie, I was super excited to go, I have always wanted to see them. They girls had so much fun and were pretty impressed. Macy especially enjoyed it since she is playing basketball now and she gets how bar it really is to do that stuff!

Valentina's Boxes

Friday, February 8, 2013

We take crafting very seriously in our house. When the girls found out they got to make their Valentine's boxes this year we had to go all out. They turned out super cute.

Coolest Mom Ever

Thursday, February 7, 2013

I got Mackenzie's new phone all set up today and thought the perfect finishing touch would be a picture of her awesome Momma as wallpaper. She was not impressed.


Wednesday, February 6, 2013

I finally got me some new running shoes!!! And I LOVE THEM!!

Fear The Beard

Tuesday, February 5, 2013

I went to the Apple store today trying to get Mackenzie's phone fixed and was disturbed by the prevalence of the beard being sported by Apple employees.

100 Days of School

Monday, February 4, 2013

The kids celebrated their 100th day of school today by dressing up like old people. It is hard to see in the picture but we put baby powder in their hair so they looked like old ladies.

Peanut Butter Cookies

Sunday, February 3, 2013

Clearly I have a food obsession... I made my mom's peanut butter cookies (with mini Reese's Pieces!) for the Superbowl party at church. YUMMY!


Saturday, February 2, 2013

I found the biggest most amazing and huge artichokes this week at the store. They were SO GOOD!

Sweating To The Oldies

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Macy and Noah were using some of my exercise bands as headbands tonight and dancing up a storm. Very Olivia Newton Johnish. Let's Get Physical!

Mexico Here I Come!

Wednesday, January 30, 2013

I got my renewed passport in the mail today!! Hello Mexico!!

Mackenzie's "Tent"

January 29, 2013

Mackenzie built a fort today and decide she needed a sign to make it clear what she was building. We apparently need to go over with her how to spell "tent" or this could cause some issues in a few years....
