Weekly Recap {2.19.18}

Happy Monday! Today is a holiday for schools but since Ella's preschool had a snow day the other week, they decided to make it up today - kind of strange if you ask me but their call, not mine.

We had such a fun week - it started with Avery's Valentine's Day party on Tuesday morning. I got to be the classroom helper so that is always fun! I helped all the little kids distribute their valentines then felt like the worst Mom ever because I forgot Avery's. And not just forgot them, but forgot to even do them. #totalmomfail  Thankfully 3yr olds are pretty forgiving!


After lunch I took the girls to the library for their Valentine's STEM class. They got to make potions again with vinegar + baking soda and they were in Heaven!

On the way home Miss A fell asleep and I brought her inside thinking she would get up and she snuggled right on the stairs LOL

Wednesday morning the kids woke up to their little presents. They were all very excited!

Then it was time for Ella's class and I also got to be the classroom volunteer. We sang, dance, played games and then I helped them distribute their Valentines. Thank goodness Ella took it upon herself to write out her Valentine's and they were all ready to go.  


After Ella's party, there was time for a quick lunch then I dropped the girls by my father in law so I could head to Brayden's school for his party. We played lots of fun minute to win it games and made a couple crafts. It was a huge success!

I have no idea what is up with Brayden's smile lately, we are working on it ha ha


By the end of the day, I was exhausted! I was so glad we had heart shaped pizza for dinner followed by heart shaped portillos chocolate cake. The kids loved the dinner and I loved that they loved it!

Rick brought me home my favorites!!

Thursday Brayden had a half day so we all hung out in the afternoon. Then we had his conference at night. We were so proud to hear how well he is doing, he really is a great student. 

Friday he was off because of conferences again so me, him & Avery ran some errands while Ella was at school. In the afternoon we played outside and built a snowman and had a snowball fight (that I lost) Rick and I were having date night and had planned to go to dinner but then durin  g the day he sprung the idea of going skiing on me. While I loved the idea I was also terrified because I had never been!  We are lucky to have a ski hill just 15 minutes from us (it's pretty small) but it was a great place for my first time I had so much fun and can't wait to go back!!


terrified on the lift! haha!

We ended our night with a drink then headed home and I think I was asleep 10 minutes later. Skiing is hard work!!

Saturday was a busy day of dance class, then a birthday party then it was the Daddy/Daughter dance!!

My girls looked SO beautiful and Rick looked SO handsome!! They were so excited while I was getting them ready and I couldn't help but register that memory and think what a sweet moment with my girls that was.

Picture time! - it was snowing big snowflakes before they left so I had to get a pic outside, it's my favorite!



Ella's bestie Ava and her Dad came over for pics beforehand too!

The girls danced the night away and had so much fun! While they were there, my friend and I took our boys to see Black Panther. It was surprisingly really good!!

Sunday was spent doing laundry, cleaning and playing outside in the snow. I really wish there was another day off on the weekends!

Hope everyone has a great start to their week!
