Happy Thursday!!! We made it through humpday!!! hahaha
Today I'm going to round up some random happenings from life lately.
Mondays are Dave's day off - and so he stays home with the littles. Sometimes, when the weather is nice, he brings them to Miss Lisa's house while he works outside - but for the most part he keeps the two of them at home and they play, run errands and send me lots of pictures :) Monday morning, Mason and G were both sleeping when I left for school, so Dave texted me this pic of our little motley crew watching Sofia the First. Luke had been on a playdate on the weekend and his extra booster seat was in the front hall - and it's HOT PROPERTY when that happens.
Monday night I had a meeting at school, but before I left my little Mustang soccer fan was running around like a wild woman. :) She refuses to keep bibs on, so we usually just throw her in one of her big brother's big t-shirts at meal time.
Everyone was in bed by the time I got home, but this sweet boy was up and excited to see me!
Hard to believe that we've had him for less than 2 weeks! We're enjoying him so much and he is such a great little guy!
Tuesday morning came EARLY and when I was looking for Luke this is what I saw...
He told me it was too cold and too bright outside of the covers. Amen, dude. Amen.
Tuesday afternoon I picked everyone up, got them all settled in with snacks and a movie and then indulged in 10 minutes of Candy Crush while I waited for a tea. #momlife
G sported her FIRST Valentines outfit on Tuesday and I thought she was looking ADORBS!
The typical after school crazies ensued once we got home...
and G bossed everyone around :)
After dinner G got in touch with her Dutch side :)
My moms parents immigrated to Canada from Holland after WWII and my mom's first language was Dutch. My grandparents brought these wooden shoes back from a trip to Holland for me when I was a toddler and I love that my kids now get a kick out of wearing them around.
She got the hang of them really quick and Dave and I were laughing at how this is probably the beginning of "dress up shoes" :)
Tuesday night we went in to check on the boys and found this...
He's crazy and I love it :)
Wednesday afternoon I left school during my planning period to go let Jack Bauer outside (since Dave and I both work so close to home we haven't had to leave him all day yet, one of us has been able to run home and let him out), and I decided to throw him in the car with me while I ran a quick errand at a friends house and then we zipped through our favorite drive-thru :)
His hair is starting to come back in and it cracks me up. I can't wait to see what he ends up looking like!
After our caffeine fix, we headed back to MCA to finish up some copying, grading and planning and then I picked up Luke and let him show Jack Bauer to all his besties in the after school program. As we were leaving the middle school girls soccer team was finishing practice and the "oooooohs", "aaaaaaaaahs" and squeals were so cute. Jack Bauer was quite the little wingman :)
When we got home, I asked Luke to watch Griffin for about 45 seconds while I ran to the bathroom and when I came out I found Griffin with a piece of cold pizza, a nutrigrain bar and a Capri Sun. She has her big brothers wrapped around her little finger!
Wednesday night the littles had a fireplace dance party. Because apparently this is the best location for getting your groove on...
and then we were SOOOOOOOO excited that our Anna Grace stopped by after soccer practice to pick out some fun jewelry to wear to winter formal this weekend. A girls gotta sparkle!!!
And today is the day!!! We've been praying and counting down as a family and can't wait for our friends to get home with Ashby! We've missed them bunches and can't wait to lay eyes on her adorable smile in person.
Hope you enjoyed my little bit of "life lately" today! Tomorrow is Friday Favorites - get your posts ready, girls!!! :)
