Sunday Family Dinner...

I am almost embarrased to say this, but today we decided to have a family meal. We actually sat down at our table and the girls were so excited! Natalie kept saying "we are having a happy family". Mackenzie made the brownies all by herself (from a box of course, since I hate baking) and set the table for everyone. Josh was thrilled with the joy of making himself miserable eating too much! Mike and I enjoyed listening to our kids. How come we don't do this more? I cook most of the time we just don't sit at our table as a family! I am convinced that this is going to become a much more practiced routine in our home. I learned so much! What a great day. Now, I need a Sunday afternoon nap!

God has blessed me!

How did I get so lucky to get two great girls? I am going to learn to be more thankful for the things God has blessed me with! I am going to trap those boys too so I can get pictures of them!

Capture that smile....

Mackenzie was more than thrilled today to purchase her very first Vera Bradley purse with birthday money and the money she has made with her Spa nights! She was just so proud that she bought it herself (and Mom was so glad I didn't have to pay for it)! I just had to capture the smile because when she is a teenager whining about wanting something I can't afford I can bust out the archives and refer back to that SMILE! LOL! It was a great day in Mac's book of life! : )

Gotta love the 80's, temperature that is....

Natalie is so hard to get in and out of the house. She is so stubborn she just loves the outdoors and never wants to go back inside. So everyday we have to have a standoff getting into the van to go anywhere because she wants to play outside! God is chuckling because she comes by stubborness quite honestly!!!! I'm blaming it on Mike! ;-)

Fell short this weekend...

We love soccer why??? Mackenzie's 2000 Academy team played in a Midwest City tournament this weekend and were not able to overcome the cold! I think we may be crazy to play soccer when the wind chill is barely 20 degrees! She has asked her brother Josh to help her to learn how to hip check someone! I have a feeling that Mackenzie's game is about to switch course and it could get ugly for the other team if a 17 year old teaches my sweet little girl to be mean! Better luck next time girls!

Twice the fun!

My sister came to visit this weekend. Natalie and Savannah were so cute chasing each other and sharing in the love of their beloved Barney! It just amazes me how busy their little minds are. They were perpetual motion the whole time until they drop and boy did they drop hard! If only they could stay this little!!!!
