Life Lately

How did Monday come so fast?! I feel like I blinked and the weekend was over. As always, another day would have been much appreciated :)

I never did a weekly recap last week so today you're getting a little dose of life lately

The hubs bought a little electronic dart board and the kids are having a blast playing it! We play it almost every night and I'm seriously amazed at how good Brayden is, and equally amazed with how bad Ella is


Ella had her bestie over for a playdate - they crafted and played so well together and it was nice that it was during Avery's nap time so they got 1 on 1 time together

The girls getting ready to get their nails painted :)

Brayden was in need of some one on one time so we headed to Wendy's one night after dinner for a frosty and some fries

Brayden is reading me chapter books now and I just think how did we get here so fast?!

Avery and I were having our smoothies the other morning and Ella wanted to take our pic :)


Me and this cutie got to do some shopping at Trader Joes and she managed to only crash her cart 1 time! #winning

I actually got to watch a Hallmark Christmas movie the other day! 

I took the girls to make slime at Michaels last week - Avery was all about it and Ella was all about checking out the pretty glass ornaments and then breaking one - oops!

Looking through the Target toy book 

Fun times at Costco!

We went to the library for a fun science event - this girl loves the hand dryer in the bathroom!



Friday night the bigs and I headed to a friends birthday party while the hubs and Avery went to another friends birthday party - they went swimming while Avery was running around a jungle gym type of place - we all met back up at home for some good night snuggles 

Saturday we had dance class then headed out by my sisters - it had been way too long since we'd seen them. We hung out there all night then Sunday we had 2 of our couple friends over with their kids for the Bears game. There were 7 kids and they all played together so great and us adults got to actually talk and hang out! Too bad the Bears lost but it was still a fun day.

Hoping everyone has a great Monday!
