Easter 2016

This year we were so lucky that my parents came up to spend the weekend with us. The kids LOVE when relatives come to "play with them", so they had a GREAT time!

Easter egg hunt!

Sure wish my parents would've put money in the eggs when I was younger! ;-)


Bishop Arts District

Today we took Jackie to go explore Dallas a little bit before her flight back to DC. We took her to go see the Margaret Hunt Hill Bridge. Then we walked around and explored the Bishop Arts District. We also picked up some delicious yummies from Emporium Pies, a local chocolate shop, and also had lunch at Lockhart BBQ. We definitely had some delicious fun this morning!!!



70 Degrees in January!!!

This weekend was gorgeous!!! The weather was amazing and I was not going to waste the opportunity to get some pictures of my littles!

A little sibling football game!

Keira scored!!!

Pictures for Dylan's 100 days of school project...

...and some sandbox fun!


The Little Gym

Last month I enrolled Dylan and Keira in classes at The Little Gym in Plano. Dylan is not a contact/competitive sport kind of kid, but he needed to do something...Keira too. I wanted to enroll Keira in gymnastics because we had taken a class during the summer with the Plano Rec Center and she seemed to enjoy it, but I didn't want to try those "hard core" gymnastics gyms, I wanted her to have fun, but also learn some skills. So we tried out The Little Gym in Plano and she loved it! Dylan came to see a few of her classes and decided he wanted to do a class as well. Keira's class is a parent participation class still, but Dylan's class is all him, without me, and he's doing a fantastic job!

She loves her teacher!!! Ms. Lyssa is also Dylan's teacher, and she's fantastic!

I'm so glad we found this place!!!


My "hopeful" return to blogging!

It has been over 6 months since my last blog post...mostly because I would forgot to, but also because I just didn't feel like keeping up with it anymore...until 2 nights ago. I was sent a coupon for 50% off a blog book and was excited because I still had 2013-2015 to print out. As I was designing those year's books, I realized how fun it would be to read through those when we received them, and felt bad for not blogging about the rest of 2015. Our fantastic trip to Disney, Dylan's first few weeks of kindergarten, Dylan breaking his arm, the holidays. None of it was documented in the blog, so none of it will be in our "yearbooks". Sure, I have all the pictures saved on my computer to show it all happened, but it won't be in our books we look through years from now (after the kids leave my nest and I need to reminisce to keep myself from packing them up and dragging them back home). So I've decided to try and pick up blogging again...not for the sake of sharing it with the world on the internet, but for the sake of being able to print it out and add it to our collection of memories. So, here goes nothing!!!

We've been dealing with a few illnesses lately. Last week Keira threw up one night (and didn't tell anyone, so we didn't know about it until the next morning when it was all dried up and her room REEKED...that was not a fun clean-up, not to mention the thought of my poor baby sleeping in that filth all night made me so sad) and then this week Dylan was sent home from school for vomiting in class. He was feeling perfectly fine the next day, so it was more a "free day" for us than a "sick day".

So we went to Sprinkles in Dallas to get some cupcakes!!!

Always fun spending time with my big boy!
