Happy Monday! We had a great low-key weekend. The weather here was AMAZING! I'm talking 70 degree head to the park kind of weather, so we did just that-twice! I have a fun giveaway this morning!!
I've shared my proud-friend status before, but I'm sharing it again! Shay has worked so hard all while taking care of kids and doing all those "mom things" to publish her books. Shay's cookbooks hit the stores TODAY! So in honor of that, we're giving away 10 sets of cookbooks!! And one special winner receives a set of cookbooks and a mixer! The giveaway is happening over on Instagram so make sure you see it and tag a friend. :)
We started off Friday morning with a school assembly. They were pumped we both got to be there.
I was wearing my new "Love" tee from KenLee Cait. The funny part about this picture is I took 7 and I knew I had a couple good ones. haha! This was the only picture that was remotely NOT blurry!
Bowen and I hit up the new Play Street Museum with friends in McKinney. He was a HUGE fan!
These three girls hula hooped in the Talent Show Friday night. Ebby Lee is pretty quiet and shy in large crowds. This was a HUGE deal for her. She rocked it!
My angle to get a picture of Ebby Lee on stage wasn't the best, but these girls did SO good! They hula hooped to "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun". Crazy proud of them!
Ms. Brittany came all the way from Austin to see the performance. Well, I'm sure she came into town for other reasons, but she also watched the show. :)
Saturday morning, Nix had a basketball game. This is actually from week one, but I just saw I'd been tagged on Facebook.
We had two extra boys on Saturday afternoon for a little play date so we hit up the park. We played Ga-Ga (I don't really know how to spell that-but the game in the pit). I laughed and laughed. My reflexes are like that of an elephant so the boys got me out quickly every single round. Somehow the stars aligned and I pulled a win out ONCE! Trust me when I say, "Everyone was shocked".
Ebby Lee and I hit up the grocery store and the magazine aisle got her. #shegetsitfromhermama
M and G came over for fajitas that night. Ebby Lee and M got a little creative with the dry erase boards.
Then we played a few rounds of Pie in the Face. This happened to Nix, as he walked to the bathroom to get cleaned up he realized in all the commotion his tooth had come out!! WILD round of that game, huh?? If you ask Nixon how he lost that tooth, he says, "Dad pulled it out". haha! Apparently, Tab wiped some of the whipped cream off with a paper towel and Nixon is adamant that he pulled it out then.
We set out the milk (if you've never heard this-be thankful...haha!) for the tooth fairy. My kids were told if you leave a cup of milk by your bed then the tooth fairy dips her wings in so you know what color the fairy was that came to your house? Anyway, Ebby Lee was the first to loose a tooth over here and you better believe she wasn't letting us forget this. So we've done it ever since. We had everything set out for the tooth fairy to arrive AND the fairies FORGOT!! We watched some tv and went right to sleep. When the big kids got up, the first thing they said on Sunday morning was, "the tooth fairy didn't come". EEEK!!!! MOM FAIL! My Ga-Ga skills are crazy slow, but I came up with something crazy quick. I told them that probably a TON of kids lost teeth yesterday and the tooth fairy might have been way too busy. Also...he lost his tooth late on Saturday night, so I told them she probably went in order. #idontknow #ihadtothinkfast #theyboughtit
Have you guys heard that about the tooth fairy?
I'll be back tomorrow sharing "How to Win My Heart" with a Show and Tell Tuesday. XOXO
