Weekend Recap - better late than never!

Tis the season for all the extra performances, Christmas parties, and extra holiday cheer! I'm a few days late posting pics from our weekend but here they are anyway!  Just a peek into our little slice of crazy!

 Waldo returned on December 1st and the girls were crazy excited to have him back!  On Friday morning we found him just hanging out on our mirror!

Weekend recap - tis the season edition!

It's crazy to think how close we are to Christmas!  We're still wearing shorts and t-shirts in Texas so it makes it hard to get in the spirit but we're definitely trying!  We had a wonderful extended weekend filled with family, friends, and lots of shopping! ;)  Here's a peek into the last few days!

Shelly hosted Thanksgiving for her family and ours.  The meal and fellowship were nothing short of perfection!  While I missed being with the rest of my family, it's nice knowing you always have a place that opens you with welcome arms.

Weekend recap - a little bit of everything + some exciting news!!!

I can definitely tell the holidays are gearing up!  The calendar is starting to fill and it's finally getting cooler outside!  This weekend included a little bit of everything.  Here's a glimpse into our crazy!
 We started Friday off with Math Day at Hope's school where I took exactly 0 pictures.  #momfail  Afterward a group of moms stayed for a bit to decorate the Kinder entrance in anticipation of Monday's Decades Day!  Kindergarten has been assigned the 50's so I'm picturing lots of poodle skirts twirling down this hallway tomorrow!

Weekend Recap - a little bit of everything!

Remember last week when the Aggies broke my heart?  Well, they went and did it again. #ugh  So, instead of focusing on the loss, I've decided to skip right over it and focus on the other parts of my weekend that made me smile!  Here's a little glimpse into our last few days!
On Thursday afternoon, we received a surprise box in the mail from our FAVORITE camp - TBarM!!!  Last month I entered a giveaway and much to our surprise, we won!!!  They sent us this fun TBarM blanket which Holden quickly claimed.  When I went upstairs Friday morning, this is how I found her bed. :)

Weekend Recap - rain outs and Aggie angst

We had a weekend full or rain, rainouts, and sadly, Aggie heartbreak.  But, I used this extra time to cross off lots of little projects from my To Do list!!!  Here's a peek into our weekend!

Shipley's gets my vote!
Friday started with a trip to the polls for me!  As I was pulling in, Mike called and said he was coming to take my car to be inspected for me.  Bonus?!  He brought me donuts!  
A sweet hubby and Shipley's definitely gets my vote!

Attitude of Gratitude - Teacher Edition

Phew!  This week thoroughly kicked.my.tail!  Who do I need to talk to about making sure Halloween always falls on a weekend?!  We've been dragging ever since Monday!

And while I know I'm not alone, my heart went out most to our teachers!  Holy heck!  I can't even imagine the level of tired they must feel after this week!  God bless them - each and every one!

As I sent off three very grumpy and tired kiddos on Tuesday morning, I immediately started to think about how I could show our teachers how much we appreciate all they do.  All the patience they show.  All the extra hours that go unpaid.  And, while most of these ideas are small tokens, I've come to realize they can make the biggest difference. Here are 5 simple ways to show your teacher how much you appreciate them - especially the week after Halloween! :)

Weekend Recap - getting ready for Halloween!

Another fun-filled weekend in the books!  We spent this past weekend gearing up for Halloween!  Here's a sneak peak into what we were up to the last couple of days!
while I'm waiting...weekend recap - pre Halloween edition
Friday we wrapped up Red Ribbon week.  Holden's theme was YOLO - what do you want to be when you grow up?  She wants to be a Certified Dog Trainer (and live in a Tiny House in our backyard!) ;) while Hope is living like a STAR and dressed for the red carpet.  We love theme days around here!
