Here’s a little look at our life lately…
…Ashby wanted to slurp spaghetti with her daddy the other night at dinner. This girl.
Smith got Hedbanz for Christmas, so we’ve been playing at night before bed. You’re supposed to ask questions and see if you can guess what’s on your head. The problem with my kids is that when they answer the questions, they act it out too (like charades), so it’s always super easy to tell what’s on your head!
Even Ashby has been playing :).
Typical Hedbanz shenanigans! Cocoa, fire and game night is our favorite!
Ashby has been working on puzzles. She was super proud when she completed this Sofia one!
Walking home from school on Friday. Everyone was happy because it was the weekend!
I went into my closet and all of the clean laundry was dumped on the floor…I went into the kitchen and found this. She was sitting in her “boat” watching Silly Booty. (A.k.a. Sleeping Beauty)
Friday night at the snow cone place. It was 37 degrees out and apparently, we were the only ones interested in snow cones, so the kids played around and entertained themselves. I spy a Slaughter kid in the middle of those Shulls…
Saturday morning we had basketball, lunch on our town square and hit the candy store. Take one.
Saturday night, both Kensington and Smith each had birthday parties, so Andrew and I took the opportunity to go on a romantic date. Plus one. The three of us had a great dinner out! We enjoyed our one on one time with our baby girl.
Ahhhhhh…and then on Sunday night, we really did go on a date! We decided a dinner out minus the munchkins was in order. The two of us plus our favorite restaurant (Eddie V’s for any of you Dallas people) was just how we needed to wrap up our weekend.
Our Monday vibes.
Smith had his 6 year well visit on Tuesday afternoon, so I took him while Andrew picked up the girls from school. Even though it was just a well visit, we sure did have fun together. It’s nice to have one on one time with my boy!
I speak Ashby fluently and rarely ever have a hard time understanding her, but on Tuesday evening, she kept asking me for something and I couldn’t understand what it was. She knew I was trying to guess and grinned really big every time she said the word. She knew she was saying it right…and she knew I was trying to get it, so her grin was extra big and super cute! Finally, I realized that she wanted marbles. Smith has some marbles in his room and she was asking me to play with them. So…here is my girl playing with marbles. I’m not sure I will ever get over the fact that I get to be her mom. It catches my breath sometimes. How cool is God that he can make a girl born on the other side of the world mine? It’s amazing. Adoption is amazing.
So…that’s life lately at the Shull house!
For dinner tonight…
…Ranch Chicken & Mushrooms in the slow cooker!
