weekend update

In an attempt to blog more regularly I am going to follow in my fantastic Sis-in-laws steps and provide my few readers (if that!!) with a weekend update.

~friday we had seth's birthday party. I decided a year or so ago that I wasn't throwing birthday parties every year for every kid. So they get a friend party at 5, 8, 12, and 16. And every year regardless they get a family (meaning grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins...) party. So he was pretty excited this year. He invited a few friends and they went swimming at our community pool.
It was hands down the easiest party I have every thrown. Eliott went and sat at the pool with them and I was going to get little ceasars pizza but my friend was on her way to get some for her family so she picked up mine as well. So all i had to do was walk the food over to the pool! It was great and he had a blast!!

~saturday I went on the youth lake trip! we had sooo much fun! I came away with lots of funny funny memories, one really awesome bruise and lots of sore muscles! So I am gonna go with, it was a success!!

~Saturday evening Eliott and I got to go on a date! WE went to red Robin which was absolutely delicious!!! I think it was perfect after a day at the lake! Then we went errand running and to kohls. I love kohls!!! We got a new church shirt for Eliott and a pair of sunglasses for me (since I dropped mine in the lake!!) for $13ish! Thank you kohls cash and coupons!

~sunday we had church of course. A tired lyddie crawling all over me for the first part. Not fun! A really cranky afternoon. I make no apologies for my crankiness. I did make a texas sheet cake from scratch before. Did you know you have to boil stuff to make that? I had no idea!! And of course I had to make the goody for seth's class so we had funfetti cookies all over the kitchen. And then we had his family b-day party. He chose teryaki chicken. I'd say other than the crankiness seeping out of my skin it was a successful party.

back to school, back to school

It's that time of year....

This year I have Seth in 3rd grade, Riley in 1st and Lydia is still in Preschool for her speech. So that leaves Lexi and I home together.
My 3 school kids
These girls love each other so much and have tons of fun! Lexi was sad at the thought of being left out but she has since changed her opinion. She is so excited for the fun that the 2 of us can have together!
My big baby girl!
Interesting pose she's got going on here!!

The summer seemed way to short for me. I wasn't nearly as ready for school to start as I normally am. But I am excited for all the fun and new things that this year will bring!
