Sometimes, I am just of the opinion that I’m a
tired … exhausted … lazy unorganized parent. I mean, life is BUSY y’all!
My sweetie had recently rearranged Elysha’s bedroom to take advantage of the spare bed we had in our house now that she’s a big girl and I’ll be posting some updates on what that room looks like soon! (Stay tuned!) We’re kind of a ‘rustic’ furniture home, so if it looks good ‘dirty,’ we often love it! (Maybe ‘worn’ is the better word here?)
I am in love with wooden signs, y’all. I mean, in love. There’s one at MCA where Silas goes to school that I love and am going to re-create something similar. Then, there’s another one I saw in a window when we went to Scare on the Square.
By the way, if you haven’t done Scare on the Square with a child with strep throat, I strongly recommend you try it. (I’m not sure what we were thinking…)
However, despite this, she smiled through it! Silas went as Anakin again and Richard went as Obi-wan. I think we’re on our last year as this costume set with Silas and it’s time to invest in a real costume like dads.
Super big thanks to the guys in blue for taking some pics with the kids. We’re really big on our police presence and love to support our men and women in blue. It’s important that each time we see police/fire/etc., that we teach our kids to thank them for their service. Shout out to these 4 guys at the McKinney Police Department for taking the time to pose for a photo op with Anakin and Rapunzel!
Silas has been on the mend from his sick days lately and it amazes me how much he can continue to smile through it even though it’s cold and dreary. He even came to a football game last Friday when we didn’t feel 100% and then attended his own game the next day. Special thanks to little Hope for posing with him, too. He was so happy she attended a game with him, too! (Have I mentioned how much we adore this little princess?)
The cheerleaders at the game even took time to love on Abbie (one of our Pekingese pups) when we brought her to the game – though I’m not sure how much everyone appreciated how much of a distraction she was. If your kids went home with long white strands of hair, it’s our fault. Sorry, kind of.
Family time is important to us and it’s often hard to get selfies of the whole crew, but when we do, I’m always in love with the smiles. I particularly love this one because of Elysha’s little ‘fist bump’. In reality, she was telling the camera to ‘kiss it!’ She has this adorable little habit of holding her hand out for you to kiss. Gosh, can you love her anymore?
Then there’s this side of her.
She’s definitely my kid. Because me, and mornings? No, thank you. I mean, not without a giant cup of my favorite coffee (Carmelicious) from Scooters!
P.S. 312 calories isn’t THAT bad, right?
I need some recommendations on duvet covers y’all. I really love our down comforter. I recently bought an amazing allergy cover and finally got it on right (it only took me 2 hours to figure out I had it on wrong and then was so frustrated that I had to start over that I nearly wanted to crawl up in the corner and rock back and forth).
First, there has to be an easier way to get these on. Second, do ALL duvet covers run big? I hesitate to put on the actual bedspread cover because I end up with all sorts of extra material at the top and I get SUPER WEIRD about all that excess material with no comforter. My head might even spin in random directions.
Please tell me I am not the only one that deals with this. What am I doing wrong? I love the size of our comforter and the fluffiness, but MAN, it makes me want to get rid of it!
So, tell me how your week has been. What are you working on this week?
