School Fun

We've been busy in Kindergarten!  First up was our 100th day celebration.  Lord knows we all love to make it to this day because then it is on to counting down our days left!  Our POD always has a rotation for the kids to do on this day.  We decorated the doors as the kids came in and just had a fun time.






We've partied for Valentines Day which I'm happy it was on a Friday.  Those parties always make me tired.  And I was glad it was the weekend because little Bennett ended up getting sick.  It was a low key Valentines for us which works for me. 
Here is Landon's lunch I packed.  I enjoy trying to pack him a special lunch and I know I won't be able to do it much longer (eventually it will be uncool of me).

(And I found my shirt through Instagram)
We celebrated Dr. Seuss March 2nd-???  I'm not sure when it ended because we had snow days at the end of the week so it kind of threw everything off.  One day we dressed as our favorite character so I made Landon match me!!!  

Here he is with his dudes from class.

For "wear your favorite color" day Gage's sweet mom made them their fish shirts.

My POD of teachers got Dr. Seuss shirts for PTC and Parent Night (which ended up getting canceled.  We wore then anyway.
We have under 50 days left and I can't wait.  I'll definitely miss having Landon at my building but I'm ready for summer fun!

Bennett Turns 3

On Febrary 27th little guy turned the BIG 3!!!  I'm the mean mom who doesn't do birthday parties.  I figure our little family celebration is just perfect (plus what they don't know doesn't kill them).  We did bring cookies, drinks, and pizza to his class at daycare so they celebrated with him.
When I asked Bennett what kind of cake he wanted, he of course said DORA.  Lance wasn't too thrilled about that but Dora isn't a girlie show to me.  So for his cake I tried to man it up with some Diego on there too!

He has been loving Pete the Cat so i found him a puppet character and a Pete the Cat board game.

It ended up snowing so my parents were unable to come over to eat cake with us.  They told me to let him open his presents anyway.

Here he was opening his presents from Aunt Brooke a couple days early (she can never wait).




Goodbye 2014, Hello 2015

We had a very low key New Years Eve which is perfectly fine to me.  We did some rearranging in the house so I had to organize and clean as I completed those projects.  
Bennett needed something in his bedroom for his clothes.  So we brought this from downstairs.  
We've been wanting something for this spot in the house.  I found an idea off of Fixer Upper and decided to go shopping at Hobby Lobby.  I ended up finding these and I'm super happy with them.  

Landon and I worked out with Jillian (his choice).
Lance grilled us some steaks and we were in our jammies pretty early.  We played downstairs and watched football.  The boys even had coke floats!
So I want to go ahead and list some goals I have for this new year.  

1.  I want to read more.  I already have a few new books on my Kindle app ready to go BUT i also want to read my Bible.  

2.  For my health I want to drink more water.  I am still NO SODA which I am super proud to say but I know I could always drink more H2O.  I'm going to come up with some strategy so I can improve this.  I will continue to exercise which is honestly a part of my daily routine now.  It just makes me feel better.  

3.  I want to keep sharing Advocare with others.  The products have changed my life for the better.  I've felt better these last 6 months than I have in a long time.  Plus, I want to help some of my team members reach advisor and get their team growing. 

4.  I want to be more present.  I definitely allow myself to get distracted with all the things I "think" I need to be doing.  Like being more conscious about my time on social media.  My life is not that fancy and I doubt I'll miss anything if I'm not checking my phone.  My 3 boys need me more than anything else.  

5.  Some other things will be to blog more and plan meals better and follow through on them.  

I have my new YETI cup to help me with water, a keyboard for my iPad which helps me blog faster, and pretty new pens to organize my meals with.  I'm ready to go!

A new year is here...the possibiliies are endless.

Landon`s 6th Birthday

We decided it was time to let Landon have a real party!  He wanted to invite friends from school and church so we decided on a bowling party.  We had about 13 kids and  it turned out great.  We started off with a game and that took a lot longer than i thought.  

Bennett even enjoyed bowling.

The pizza was ready so the kids ran back and forth.

Two of his classmates.
We had a wrestling theme even though he really wanted football.  




The group of kids.

He wanted to spend the night with Nana and his cousins.  Even though it broke my heart we let him go.  Lance went and got him that morning and i talked to him on the phone.  They got home and put together his gift from grandma and papaw.
He opened a few gifts and we had his icecream cake.


He had a good 6th birthday which is all we wanted.  Landon's such an awesome kid.  He is so sweet, very kind hearted, and is such a smart boy.  I'm thankful God chose us to be his parents!
