Weekend Recap - Family Photos and Football Edition

Saturday morning we met Kelly out on the road where she has been taking our family pictures for the past several years.

Here was my crew in 2013...



... and then this weekend!  But these are from my phone :) hahaha


It was cold, but pleasant and this was the first year that nobody cried (including me). hahaha :)


Jack Bauer tagged along and he was the model subject :)





and same spot in 2012...




... and 2012 again.






And since I was in zero iPhone pics here's what I wore :)


After pictures we headed home, grabbed breakfast and then this girl and I headed to dance.




She danced and I sipped :)


And then we hung out and watched a few of the big girls dance.


Saturday afternoon Luke went to a birthday party at a magic shop!  How fun is that?!?!


When Griffin and Dave got there to pick Luke up she got to help out with a trick :) Luke is so sweet with her and he volunteered her to go.  Love his big heart for his little sister.


Dave sent me this picture later on... apparently you have to duck through a tiny door to get to the potty?  So weird. hahaha


 Mason and I hung out at home and did some Christmas doodling...


... and later that night I packed up all three and we headed out to see MCA play in our very first playoff football game!  GO STANGS!!!


We were there a bit early (hence the somewhat empty stands) and the kids were SO EXCITED to sit at the very top of the stands.


Mason and Dr. E ;)  LOVE my principal!




 Look how cute Mason and one of his friends from his class were!



We got to see Anna Grace!


And our favorite cheerleader, McKinley!


A couple of cuties on Sunday morning!  Can we talk about how stinkin' cute Luke is?!?!






We spent the majority of Sunday afternoon hanging out outside.  I graded papers and my shadow hung out with me the whole time :)



It was a busy weekend which was made extra clear when this happened at dinner...




Early bedtimes all around!

We have tons going on this week - feasts, pie feasts, class parties, grandparents day, etc.  It's going to be wild and crazy but so much fun.  Hope y'all had a wonderful weekend and have a great week planned!

Happy Monday, Friends!
