Happy Friday, Friends!!! It's been a short week for me at work, and I haven't hated it :) hahaha
I am most definitely for some relaxing time with my little crew this weekend.
Don't forget that if you're linking up with us today - just grab our graphic, link back to one (or all) of us and share about your Friday Favorites!!!
Up first is dinner on Tuesday night with some of my FAVORITE people. We had dinner with Dave's parents, grandmas, brother and his brother's girlfriend to celebrate my birthday and (as always) had so much fun!
And yes... GG is wearing one of Luke's old t-shirts. It's one of my best "mom tricks" becuase she refuses to wear a bib and it covers a lot of her pants as well :)
A month or so ago, Art by Brandis got in touch with me about doing a series of sketches of Griffin. Her work is so fun and unique and original and I love that you can totally tell that it's Griffin even without facial features. I emailed her a bunch of pictures and she picked which ones she wanted to sketch...
I mean - my word!!! How crazy fun is that?!?!?!
And I'm so excited to have this one to remember her Halloween costume this year :)
She emailed me the digital files and the prints are in the mail. I can't wait to get them framed and ready for her big girl room. I have a feeling they're going to be a FAVORITE feature in her new space!
My FAVORITE Jack Bauer picture from the week :)
I've said it before, but one of my FAVORITE parts of my job is getting to randomly see Luke throughout the day. Yesterday, I was walking to a meeting in our Student Life Center and I saw him and his friend Lucy at recess...
And today on my way to lunch I got to see him doing JumpRope for Heart.
When I got my hair cut a few weeks ago, the stylist used MoroccanOil on my hair and I looooooooooooved it! My hair is naturally pretty dry and I put this on my hair after I blow dry it and it totally takes away the frizz without it feeling heavy or greasy. This is by far my FAVORITE hair product!
Mason had his PreK Visitation Day yesterday morning and when he was done he hung out in my classroom during one of my PreAlgebra class for a few minutes while I wrapped up a review before I drove him to Miss Lisa's. My middle schoolers TOTALLY dote on him (note the special seat with pillows and snacks) and he ate up all the attention.
Can you tell he hated it??? :) hahaha
And yes.... that one kids has a mustache drawn on his face. Because that's totally normal. hahaha
Welcome to my life, girls. #middleschool
He participated in circle time and they did a couple of centers including making this Very Hungry Caterpillar. So proud!!! So excited!!! The only problem is he REALLY thinks that now he gets to come to school every day. Pray for me. hahaha
School is his FAVORITE :)
Every morning Dave sends me a pic of the kiddos before the sitter, and this one was my FAVORITE from the week...
And speaking of FAVORITE pictures...
Kindergarten Humor at it's finest. :)
And since we're talking humor...
This has made me laugh soooooo hard this week! Like uncontrollable giggling every time I see it.
We all know that Mason's FAVORITE is undivided attention, and Wednesday night, a trip to the grocery store with just me was exactly what this sweet boy needed. He pushed the cart (blindly) and then we RAN back to the car with him hanging on the cart. He's easy to please :)
My FAVORITE text thread from this week went down on Monday when Dave took the boys to the Country Club to hang out in the "teen room" and play X-Box for a little while. As of right now we don't have plans for video games in our house, but heading up there and playing for 30 minutes is a real treat :) While Luke was playing, Mason was getting antsy and so this happened...
Anything to make our little smile, right??? :)
Last weekend, Jordan from Griffin and Grace brought by some sweet surprises for G and I...
