Ahhh…a little look into our life this week.
Many of you have asked for updates on how Ashby is doing at home and just so you know, I plan on doing those posts once a month. We’re living day to day (moment to moment), so each month, I’ll post about our progress, what has surprised us, what we’ve struggled with, what has been a joy and such. Look for that in the weeks to come. So far, we feel completely blessed and are totally in love (and we’re tired!).
Here’s life lately…
Last Thursday, we landed in San Francisco and ate at the very same diner where we had eaten 18 days prior…but this time…we were a party of five :).
Our plane landed in Dallas and I knew our friends and family were waiting at baggage claim…I had to wake up our sleepy heads.
This one was asleep with her head in my lap.
First morning home and we decided to channel Ashby’s BFF…Griffin. A big bow and pajamas are always appropriate in the McAnally house!
First evening home and we took Ashby to eat the world’s finest cuisine…Tex-Mex! She and I split the fajitas and she loved them! I think her favorite part was the guacamole…ahhh…such a mommy’s girl!
Smith did this during dinner. Jet lag. The struggle is real.
Sunday morning was Smith’s 5th birthday!!! He requested chocolate donuts for breakfast before church.
Ashby and Kensington watching Smith open his presents from us before church. I love how they’re sitting just alike.
My 5 year old ready for church!
All 3 kiddos ready to go! Ashby sat in my lap during church and was as sweet as can be :). The only good part about jet lag? Everyone is up early and ready to start their day. I doubt it will be this easy to get everyone up and out of the house in the days to come ;).
Smith is having his birthday party this Saturday, so on his actual birthday night, we invited over Papa Jay, Lovie, Uncle Seanie and Aunt Catherine for spaghetti and cupcakes (his choice!). This was Ashby’s first cupcake/cake ever.
And she loved it!
I can’t believe he’s five.
Monday was MLK Jr Day, so Kensington was off from school. We started our morning with a trip to Target before inviting Nixon over for a play date and Kensington heading to Ebby Lee’s house. I’m so happy that our first real Monday at home, I had all three kiddos. My car was full and so was my heart.
On Wednesday, while Kensington was at school, Smith asked if we could bake something. Well…you don’t have to ask me twice! This was Ashby’s first time in the kitchen cooking with us…and I think she loved it :). (I love how she’s looking at her big brother!)
I’m pretty sure I have another little cook in my kitchen :).
Life this week was completely different. Three kids…and so much love.
On my foodie blog today, I’m showing you two different (easy!) versions of a Pot Pie! So simple and so delicious! Come check them both out…
