Encourager - I was volunteering last week and I got to see Luke in action with his classmates while they were split into groups working on Native American dioramas. Y'all. He is SUCH an encourager. He would go around and look at his friends projects and give the sweetest, most genuine compliments. Proud mama over here!
Amazon Wish List - Luke looooooves him some Amazon! I set up a wishlist for him and have let him browse the Lego section and add items to his wishlist. There has been no promise of him actually receiving any of it but he is having so much fun ;)
Loose Tooth - Luke has only lost 3 teeth (maybe 4... he's asleep and I cant' remember but I'm pretty sure it's three) and all three of them have been on the bottom. He was late to get his teeth and he got his bottom teeth first so this isn't surprising but he does get a little impatient waiting to lose his teeth while a few of his friends are getting braces. WELL... one of his top front teeth is kind of wiggly and he is OVER THE MOON! I have a feeling it's going to be a while before it comes out but the anticipation is already high at our house!
Card Making - Mason has been all about making cards for his friends, teachers and family. He LOVES a good black Sharpie and his cards typically include balloons, tornadoes and TCU ;)
Basketball - Mason is playing basketball this season and he is PUMPED to get out there with his friends. His practices are going to be at the same time/place as Luke's (PRAISE JESUS!!!) and Dave is going to help coach. Get ready for some cute brother basketball pictures!
Lotus Shrimp - Last Tuesday Mason came home talking about the election. He asked if I wanted "Hollary Clonton" or "Lotus Shrimp". Yes, friends. Lotus Shrimp. hahaha Apparently he couldn't remember Donald Trump and thought that Lotus Shrimp sounded close enough :)
Six Breakfasts - Griffin is our early riser (like... 5:15 am early) and we always joke that she eats 6 breakfasts by the time she heads out the door with Dave. She typically comes into our bed toting a cup of dry cereal she's poured and then when I have peanut butter and banana toast she'll have a piece as well. Then when the boys have eggs, she'll have some too. She is starving every. single. morning.
Daisy and Elsa - Griffin's baby dolls have always just been named "baby". Last week as she was pushing them around in the stroller I heard her talking to them and calling them by name. I asked her what their names were and she politely informed me that they were Daisy and Elsa :)
Rude - Griffin's favorite word right now is "rude". "Mommy! Mason is being rude to me!", "Daddy, Baby Garrett is at Miss Lisa's house... he is rude!" "Luke, it's my turn to play. Stop being rude and let me play!" ;)
Me and Dave
Holiday Hustle - I'm working my TAIL off on Christmas cards (proofs are coming!!! keep an eye on your email!) and Dave is gearing up for Holiday parties, weddings, banquet and general craziness. We drink A LOT of caffeine over the next few weeks :)
Eleven Years - This December we'll celebrate 11 years of marriage! Last year we marked 10 years with our oven-fired pizza followed by carrot cake in the Tom Thumb parking lot :) I'm not sure what our plans will be this year, but chances are it will involve pizza. hahaha
Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt - I watched The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt on Netflix a while ago and laughed my TAIL off! I got Dave into it and now we watch an episode or two every night and he's loving it as well. It's ridiculous and so fun!
So... what three things are you up to?!?!
PS - Photos are a peek into our family pictures from last weekend! IN LOVE!!!
