Hey there Thursday.
Here’s a little look at life lately…
I ran errands with this one last week. I had tacos for lunch, she had nuggets and we both agreed not to tell Ashby that she had been carrying around her mermaid all day long.
Two sweet girls on our way out the door. Ashby had a hard week last week…but she was still all smiles.
For their 100th day of school, the first grade had to make a shirt (or something else to wear) with 100 things on it. Smith had a vision: he needed a white tee and puff paint. I kind of wanted to micromanage the situation…but he handled it himself (with the help of Andrew) and was so proud when he was done!
I love this boy.
On Friday afternoon, Andrew was still out of town snowboarding, so I took the kids to get the big girls’ hair cut along with pizza after. Miss Ashby is waiting for her turn…
…Miss Madeley was saying “cheese” really hard. She and Smith waited while the other two got fresh new dos.
She was so excited to get her hair cut!
Love this one too.
Showing off their hair as we walked to the pizza place down the street.
The next morning…she had a sassy new do and a sassy new tee. It says “I love you more than cupcakes…almost”. Ha! I found it on Etsy!
In-between basketball games on Saturday morning, they were all piling into the car as we listened to the Trolls soundtrack for the 100th time. I laughed because if you would have told me way back when I was a senior in high school at an NSYNC concert that I’d still be listening to Timberlake 17 years later but in a big old mom car full of kids, I would have thought no way. 🙂
This is the face of a HAPPY girl! I woke up at 4:30 on Sunday morning just so I could finish the last episode of One Tree Hill in peace.
I feel like someone should hand me a diploma or certificate for finishing.
Here are my thoughts (without giving anything away): It was 9 seasons but kind of felt like two completely different shows. The first portion felt like one show and the second portion felt like a completely new show. There were some character changes that I did not enjoy…but I learned to love the new boys but not so much the new girls. I absolutely LOVED how it ended. All series should take notes from the ending of OTH because they went out beautifully. Whew! I started it at the end of October…so, I’m happy to be done. Now…Erika and Meagan are making me watch Gossip Girl.
I’ve told you before how my kids have naturally sort of paired off. I really was not expecting this to happen like it has. On Monday afternoon, Kensington and Madeley were playing on the driveway together (they adore each other!!!) and then inside…
…Smith was helping Ashby put together a toy. If you know my kids, then these pairs make perfect sense based on their little personalities. I just love watching these little relationships unfold. It’s such an unexpected little part of having four.
I was watching Kensington play basketball outside the back door. Dance top, check. Yoga pants, check. Leopard wedge booties, check. A girl who marches to her own beat, check, check, check. This girl does her own unique thing and I love it :).
Meanwhile, Smith and Ashby invented a game using magnetic shapes, pennies and two spoons…
…and they can’t stop playing 😉 .
Those middle kids 🙂 .
That’s a little life lately.
See you tomorrow!
