while I waited...week 7

While I'm Waiting...while I waited week 2
It's always a sign of a good week when you start it with a holiday!

These kiddos love spending time together!  Since they don't go to the same schools 
(5 kids = 5 different schools!), they look for any opportunity to get together!

 They obliged my artsy picture request! ;)

 We didn't plan this but apparently stripes are the go to fashion statement for the bowling alley!

 I had a PTO meeting at Holden's school on Tuesday and was greeted with this smiling face as I walked back to my car!  It does my mama's heart good to see her so happy!

 Tuesday afternoon was art class and Holden was busy working on a new masterpiece using pastels!

 Mini was spayed on Monday and she still wasn't feeling her normal self.  Bless her sweet heart!  Happy to report she's 100% back to normal now and causing havoc all over our house!

Welcome to Wacky Wednesday!  This girl doesn't need an excuse to act crazy!

 Colby had an orthodontist appointment close to Hope's school so he surprised her by dropping off lunch.  She was super surprised!  I have a feeling this might become a tradition!

 Hope and her friend, Ava.  I snapped this as they were walking to the car looking like big girls!

 The weather has been a-may-zing lately so we've had lots of afternoon play dates with our neighbors!

Thursday evening Shelly and I joined the ladies from Tres Chic at a kickoff event for Brazos Valley Fashion Week benefiting the Fun for All Playground for children with special needs.  Such a fun time!  Afterwards Shelly and I went to one of our favorite restaurants and grabbed some pizza and enjoyed lots of girl talk!  Perfect evening indeed!

Oh happy day!  For 18 years Mike and I have had this armoire and for 18 years, it has never gone in the room where we planned it to go (it's WAY big!).  For the last couple of years I have tried to sell it with no luck.  Finally I bit the bullet and had Habitat for Humanity come pick it up.  I'm not sure what made me more happy - seeing it go or being thankful that it didn't fall on the guys moving it!

Speaking of getting rid of things...I had these American Girl dolls all ready to sell and then Hope found them.  She's been playing with them ever since!

 hours and hours of fun!

 Friday afternoon Happy Hour with a dear friend = the perfect way to start the weekend!

 Holden's basketball game on Saturday wasn't until after lunch!  Whoop!  Sadly, they didn't get the W but they played really well!

 We ran errands Saturday afternoon and saw this heart on the sidewalk.  We couldn't help but stop and take a pic! ;)

 Colby's Lil' Wrangler group danced at the Hospice Happening fundraiser on Saturday night.  I love his partner, Audrey!  She's two years younger than him and itty bitty but she's not afraid to keep him in line!  They were rehearsing before the performance and Colby was called out for not knowing the routine.  Audrey was not impressed!  They did a few extra run throughs and I'm happy to report they did awesome when the lights came on!

Shenanigans in the after after church today.  Be sure and stop back tomorrow and see how the message really confirmed I am losing my marbles!

That wraps up our week!  I'm so glad you stopped by!  Hope you have an extraordinary week!

Gig 'em and God bless!

  4. Such great pictures! Your kids are so cute. How fun that they get to spend time with their buddies from other schools. That's not easy to plan.

    1. Thanks, Lori! Our kids are definitely more like cousins so when we ask, "do you want to see if Dillon and Carly can..." before we ever get the rest of the question out the answer is always, "YES!" Not easy to plan but totally worth it to hang out together. We love our time together.

      Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you have a great week!

  6. Yay for American Girl dolls... I had four growing up and I'm not sure I would be able to part with any of them! ;)

    1. These dolls were my oldest daughter's. I wasn't a doll girl growing up and neither was she so the thought of selling them wasn't hard. But...Hope has really taken a liking to them!

  9. Our three American girl dolls are still packed away waiting for Hannah to get a bit older before we pull them out. She has the American Girl bitty baby which she adores. Such fond memories of my girls playing with them and our tea parties.

    1. I have twin itty bitty babies that I have been trying (very unsuccessfully!) to sell on Craigslist! I'm not a doll person so this is all new territory to me!
