Day 50: Ashley and her two sweet girls came to visit today! I am so grateful for a friendship that has lasted well beyond our teaching years and cherish every time we get to spend time together.
Day 51: I am doing a small group study with my Lifegroup girls and we went on an impromptu dessert run to Bahama Bucks after we were done. We all tried SweetTart, mmm!
Day 52: We have been saving up for a while to buy the kids a playset for the backyard. This morning, we finally took the plunge and bought it. Wow, talk about a lot of pieces! I spent all day just sorting all the pieces and putting it all in order for assembly.
Day 53: Today, our friends Whitney and Tyler and their kids came over. The guys worked on the playset while the girls played with the kids. We also went and had yummy Mexican food at Papa Perez for dinner. Oh, and we played hair salon and tried to give both the girls messy buns!
Day 54: Tonight we went to Jason's Deli with our friends, David and Kelley. Cody was tickling Audrey girl and she was laughing so hard. This picture doesn't capture all the laughter but I thought it was cute.
Day 55: We love breakfast for dinner!
Day 56: At music class this morning I spotted a twinkie! Chandler wanted to join in on the picture too. :)

Day 43: Quick mid-cooking trip to Sam's today. I was in the middle of making my freezer meals for our swap and realized I didn't have enough honey! We got home, ate lunch, put the kids down for a nap and was working on the meals and then realized I didn't have enough freezer bags. Ahhh, I don't work well doing things last minute!
Day 44: We went over my friend Whitney's house this morning. She has two precious kids, Audrey and baby Cal. Audrey thinks his name is baby Cow and follows up saying his name with a "mooo". She LOVED staring at him, touching his head, saying "hey baaaby!".
Day 45: Happy Valentine's Day from these two cuties!
Day 46: Saturday yard work with daddy while mama cleans the house!
Day 47: New Life had an extended night for the parents to go out on a Valentine's date after our evening service. After a long week, this was a wonderful time to spent time with together! Grub Burger has our favorite milkshakes.
Day 48: Chandler was enjoying the beautiful weather and doing a little digging. He loves his "mohawk warrior" hat these days.
Day 49: Audrey girl is getting her two year molars on the bottom. Lots of chewing and biting going on!

Day 36: Little mama taking care of her baby Lucy!
Day 37: Daddy is HOME from Minnesota! The boys spent the morning building and playing with Legos.
Day 38: We spend the morning playing with friends. Jayden and Audrey loved playing the piano!
Day 39: I went to Target this morning to buy some organizational supplies for our New Life Preschool rooms and this is what I found! They are redoing everything and many shelves are completely empty. It made it a little hard to get my shopping done, haha.
Day 40: We went to McAlisters for dinner after our evening service with friends. As we were wrapping up and talking the kids made themselves right at home at a table for two. Audrey then decided to eat all of her left overs out of her to go box.
Day 41: Tonight we took the kids for a surprise treat to Bahama Bucks after dinner and they split a cherry snocone.
Day 42: Tuesday mornings we have music class! I love spending one-on-one time with each of them. Chandler's class is really fun because he gets really excited about going and sings all the songs!

Day 29: Today we had a playdate with the Kinnards and Bevers. Sam was so sweet to play with Chandler. Chandler loved their big helicopter, monster trucks and dinosaur books!
Day 30: As I was cooking dinner tonight, I heard Audrey saying, "love you bubba". I looked over to see this!
Day 31: We met lots of friends at the park this morning! A missionary family from New Life are back in College Station visiting so we were able to join them for a playdate. This was a glorious start to our morning. We ended the day with Audrey girl throwing up all over Chick-fil-a. No fun!
Day 32: Woohoo! The day I have been waiting for had finally arrived. My friend Leah and I went to a calligraphy workshop in Austin. We had lots of fun but were exhausted by the end of the day. Our eyes and hands hurt, writing from 10am-6pm is a LONG time!!
Day 33: Sweet Mammy came to see us!! She soaked up lots of reading books, playing cars, singing songs, and tucking little ones in bed.
Day 34: I am currently reading, Say Goodbye to Survival Mode by Crystal Paine (Money Saving Mom). It is a very quick read with lots of great goal-making and organizing tips. When I read this about the book I knew I had to read it...
You know you're made for a more fulfilling life. With this book, you’ll know where to start. You wake up tired. Your to-do list is too long. The commitments—and the laundry—are piling up, but your energy keeps dwindling. You feel like you're simply making it through the days, not living or enjoying any part of them. In Say Goodbye to Survival Mode, you'll find both practical ideas and big-picture perspective that will inspire you to live life on purpose.
Day 35: Cody sent us this picture today from a coffee shop in Minnesota! He went to Desiring God's Conference for Pastors. Chandler kept asking for a picture of Daddy, Jason, and Allen.
