I am 35......

......and there is snow on the ground! It was fun to act my 'real' age in the snow : 8.75! We had a great day full of family fun. We went sledding in the neighborhood with friends and out for Vietnamese food for lunch.  Ryan got invited on a play date at a neighborhood friends house (her first one where we just dropped her off!) and Emma had a friend over to play.  Then, The Porras family invited us over for dinner and drinks.  We had pizza and Elise made me a little birthday cake and gave me beautiful flowers.  It was fun, and I got to wear comfy sweats since they live behind us. We were home and all snuggled into bed by 10.  Perfect birthday!

Fun birthday in the snow with my girls!
Pollyanna really poking out there these days!

We took the snowboard and went sledding at the big bowl at Hill Elementary.  It was a blast!

Love this guy!

Emma's toes got cold!
Icy hill at Hill + good friends + snowboard = FUN!

2014- after I completed my first full marathon

Spring pics

We got proofs from Ryan's spring pictures. 
 Chris says she looks like she needs to toot!

Date with Gramma

Emma got to go on a date with her Gramma today.  She loved getting to spend the one on one time with her.  They went to Chick-fil-a and then got manicures.

Happy birthday, Cooper

My nephew is 6 today and although I have never met him I think about him all of the time and I love him. Happy birthday sweet boy! I can't wait until the day that we all get to meet you.

Ice day 2015

Of course the day that Chris was supposed to get home we had an ice day and school was cancelled! The girls were super excited.  I was tired since it was day 5 of single parenting but also glad to get to make a fun day at home with them. 
Ryan called it snow and was so excited to play in it. 

Emma and I stayed inside and  played games while Ryan played in the ice.
The girls had fun on the ice covered "jump-a-ring"!

Snuggles and  movies!
Emma wore a bikini for most of the day!
I attempted to sneak away for a quiet, relaxing bath.
I didn't even get the tub filled before they joined me.

Lots of love for Polly

Both the girls already love their little sister so much.  They each ask to kiss her and talk to her every day.  I am so excited to watch them with her when she arrives.

Sock Hop

Hill Elementary had their annual Sock Hop and I got to take the girls to it.  Pa met us there and was a big help.  The girls loved dancing with him and he helped me keep track of the girls who seemed to run in opposite directions!  Mamaw got the girls their precious poodle skirts and the girls looked great and had a blast.  I took a ton of pictures.  Here are some of the best ones.

Polly and I got to dance with Emma!

4 cuties!
