while I waited...week 9

While I'm Waiting...while I waited week 2
Here's a glimpse into what I did this week while I waited...
 While I'm Waiting...while I waited...week 9
 We celebrated Leap Day by leaping! #duh

The bigs normally take the bus to school but on Tuesday Colby had FCA so I drove them.  Wearing pajama pants and going barefoot sounded like a great idea until I was on my way home and realized I was about to run out of gas!  #uhoh

 I also cast my vote and reserved my right to complain on Tuesday! ;)

 And also realized that little miss can now reach the garage door button.  Growing up too fast!

 My little lucky charm!

 Wednesdays are for fort building!  See that Groupon box behind her?  She has played in it for the last three weeks!  We keep saying we are sending it to the recycle pile but each time she begs us not to. #sheisnthelpingmyclutterproblem!

Enjoyed a fun night out with Stacey on Wednesday night.  We use to be neighbors but now we have to schedule time to see each other otherwise months will go by before we run in to each other. :(

 And I came home to find Hope passed out in her fort.

 It's Go Texan time in Texas and Hope's class made Wanted pictures.  She'll continue celebrating this week with a Cowboy Day on Thursday!

Our kids LOVE scavenger hunts.  Holden created this spider scavenger hunt for Hope and the kids down the street!

I'm still working through the 26 week KonMari challenge - one drawer at a time!  
Friday was a day of catching up on a few areas!

 Friday nights are for snuggles - I don't think  Maggie minds one bit!

 Saturday morning soccer games and big brother pep talks!

 Their relationship is so sweet! (if only I could get him to be this sweet to his other sister!)

  Holden spent most of Saturday with Shelly and Carly at Kyle Field Day.  These girls have fun wherever they go!

Mike took Hope to our neighborhood school carnival on Saturday afternoon.  Hope was super excited to run into Whitney!

Meanwhile, I was home getting beat in a game of HORSE!  (for the record, it was tied at HORS and then Colby drained a shot that I wouldn't even attempt!) ;)

 And we ended our week in the best possible way - by celebrating Ava's birthday!

I'm so glad you stopped by!  Don't forget to stop by Friday's post and enter the GIVEAWAY I have going!  I'll announce the winner this Friday!

Gig 'em and God bless!

  2. A great weekend indeed. I remember the fort days. And the box days. The money we could have saved on toys and just gave them boxes!!
