February 2017 Round Up

Well, it's almost April so I guess I should blog about February!  Ha!!

First up, I LOVVVVE this shirt!  


While I was going through some books my mom gave me I came across this book my Great Aunt had made for Zachary.  It was so sweet...and dated, and I don't remember it at all, but it was so wonderful to find this gem.



The 2nd I had a beast of a headache and mom suggested putting ice on it.  It helped so much!  I was able to function after doing this for about 30 minutes!


The 3rd was the 101st day of school...so little man made Dalmatian ears at school.  I'm that pathetic mom who didn't glue 100 things to a shirt or bring a collection of 100 items.  Owen did bring 100 Legos, but that was just because that was the easiest to carry!  Ha!


That Friday Will, Aidan's best friend, joined us for dinner and ice cream!  He's a great kid and wonderful influence on Aidan.


Sunday morning we celebrated the Big One's birthday at El Paseo.  We all enjoyed the food and the company!




Monday, Feb 6th, was Aidan's actual birthday and we do donuts on that day.  Note him holding his throat?  Yeah....his throat was killing him.  So we let him stay home.  


 Tuesday Grandma came over to do ALL THE LAUNDRY and I am forever grateful!!  Then she spent some time helping Obug with homework.


By Wednesday this one was pretty bad off.  I was certain he had strep throat, but he didn't.  He did have enough green snot running down his throat (you're welcome for that visual) to make the pediatrician gag!!  We were sent home with antibiotics.  And he was feeling better by Friday!


Oh Vday cards how I loathe you!  One kids agrees with me.  One loves it.  And one doesn't care either way.  Blah....


Planning out the next week...


Oh my goodness....this little girl is TOO precious.  She is one of 12 girls and 4 boys that I teach at my job.  I have such a great class this year!!


 The weekend of the 17th through the 19th we kept Grace and Caleb, the children of some of our friends.  It was a loud, long and fun weekend.  This one did her homework right next to me all day.  It was quite sweet.  


Sonic break after picking my kids up from school!!  They are doing the dab here by the way. 


Saturday we went to the Szymanski's for Keegan's birthday!  All (6) of the kids had a great time!!


This is how I spend quiet time...with this one staring at me.  It's sweet...and irritating.  Love her! ;)


The 22nd I changed our the toilet seat in the boys/guest bathroom. (it looks like it doesn't match the toilet, but it does!)  I was so proud of myself and I only walked away with a minor injury! Haha!


Just love her....sweet spirit, heart and soul!


The 23rd was B's Pirate musical at school.  Thanks to Gaga she was the best dressed pirate there!!  



Joey and I went on a breakfast date that Saturday and really enjoyed the atmosphere and food.  It's a restaurant right by our local airport...and by airport I mean teeny tiny planes land and take off there.  ;)


While grocery shopping I saw this gum.  I have vivid memories of my great grandma having this in her purse.  I liked the smell back then, but didn't think I was allowed to have any, because I thought only people with dentures could chew it!  Hahahaha!!


The last week of February I purged and cleaned and straightened and purged and purged B's room.  I finally finished and took a photo to prove it!  


I plan on doing a whole post about her room, but for now this little image is all I've got!  


Although it was a short month, it was busy!  On to March!

January 2016 Round Up

January....time to stop listening to Christmas music and start on some fresh ideas!
I wanted some new walpaper for my phone, so I hit up Pinterest for some ideas.  




The beginning of the month was rough for B.  She was sick for almost an entire week.  She was throwing up and super lethargic.  Daisy was a great companion while Breslyn needed it! :) 


One project I wanted to tackle was the pantry.  I had planned on redoing it right after we moved in, but time got away from me...as well as just being lazy.  But not this time!!  I pinned a lot of ideas, decided what I could afford and went to it.  First...cleaning the pantry out...😬😣 {I must admit this project took quite a few days to complete.  With a sickie and gathering ideas, I wasn't able to get it done in just one day.}


The next project I tackled was this "Home" decor in our LR.  Well....I loved it...until...



...and I did figure out another way to hang it.  And it stayed...for about 4 days I think.  Then it fell off again, this time on top of Owen.  It hurt him bad!!  I felt like a terrible momma.  But it is no longer in the house.  And we look like we are now promoting the "hoe" life in our LR!!  😂😂😂

Sickness continued...


I bought and hung a new wooden banner in Owen's room...


And FINALLY,  on the 9th, I finished the pantry.  I was able to use a lot of things I found in the garage, and only had to purchase a few things from Walmart!  I'm happy with how it turned out.


This kid...I asked him if he was ready for middle school next year.  His response was no...and I wondered if it was because he would be a little fish in a big pond, or if kids will be mean.  My heart started to hurt...then he said he is gonna miss P.E.  And suddenly all was right again.


I got a new planner and I love it.  I can scrapbook in it and it has room for pictures!  


January 15th the Cowboys played their final game and we had the Edstrom's over to watch...and after the game we played Quiddler.  Shelly and I were pretty proud of our words!!!  haha!


Just another day in paradise...


I decided during my quiet time to journal every verse in the Bible that refers to Christ's love for me.  I NEED to read, see and RECOGNIZE his love for me, because there are days I feel distanced from him.  


The 20th we took Linda out for her anniversary.  We went to On the Border and it was delicious!


That Sunday I helped Jerri and Mimi shop for Mimi's bedroom!!  We had so much fun, and I think Mimi will love the finished product!


The next week I got to hang out with my parents for lunch and a little shopping!  I loved it.  I kinda like them. 😉


That Friday I met my friend Ashley for lunch!  Even though we see each other at work, there isn't a lot of time to talk.  So we met up for yummy food and great conversation!!


 Finn has drum lessons every Monday after school, so Owen and B do their homework in the car while we wait.  


I spent the last part of January sick with a semi sore throat, snot and allergies.  Blah. 

And just like that another month has passed. 👋
