I’m wondering now if the name of this blog should be “playing catch-up”. One would think that things would settle down after the Christmas season, but they just don’t seem to.
In January, we celebrated Selah by giving her a little birthday party with some friends – her first “official” birthday party. Poor second child born on New Year’s Eve.
While she was happy to take a picture by herself, she wasn’t feeling the family shot. I never did get her to look the camera or smile.
But she enjoyed the whole blow-out-the-candles part.
Yay! There’s a smile!
I’m sure Valentine’s Day happened sometime in February, but as I sit here in March – I am not sure what we did for it except take this adorable picture of Jeff and the girls.
Love it. We are always ready for Valentine’s Day – enough hearts, pink, and red to last for days.
Pause once again while I try to remember what we did on Valentine’s Day. Nope, still nothing.
March was up next and so far has proved to be very eventful.
We started off with a bang and saw Macy earn her exemplary reader award at her elementary school. Such a proud moment for her and for me.
We also had several Go Texan days at the little girls’ school, including a pony ride for Selah.
Then we were off to Camp Tejas for spring break with our extended family.
We even managed to get a picture with all the cousins. This, in itself, is pretty miraculous.
More cousin time. ❤️
My kids love our spring break trip with family because it means staying outside ALL day, hot dogs for dinner and s’mores for dessert. They get tons of cousin/aunt/uncle/grandparent time. And they get to sleep in bunk beds! How could life be any better?
I have a feeling it will be tough to go back to school after spring break. 😴
