happy monday, folks!
this weekend was rather low key, but filled with family and friends.. and the complete loss of my voice. conversations have been exhausting and I'm hoping it returns soon! BUT it didnt stop us from celebrating this weekend-o-love with some of our favs!
this. this girl. she has some internal alarm clock that tells her its time to wake before 7am every single day. when her dad is at the fire station.. this is what I wake up to. my bed is full of either puzzles or books or both. we are really adamant about making them stay in their bed until 7am or later- and often it is a result of telling her to get back in bed until the green light on your alarm clock comes on. it usually works and then sometimes its just sweet to let her play quietly while the rest of the house is asleep.
friday night we were desperate for dinner on the patio somewhere- the weather has been unreal! this week its supposed to be in the 80's (gasp!). we met auntie and uncle j for mexican food and then headed back to their house for dessert.
uncle j's specialty.. pizookee! chocolate chip cookies topped with ice cream topped with chocolate syrup. the big girls were digging it!
..all while the babes slept soundly.
saturday we went to jenna's, let the big girls and truett play on their new outdoor play set and then had dinner + dessert together. I got zero pictures.
I have bene having really bad insomnia lately when Jordan is gone to work..so I found myself on pinterest and midnight eating a bowl of cereal and decided to try my hand at a fancy valentine's day chalkboard:)
we DIY'd these doors months ago and this was my first time to really break them in.
sunday morning Jordan came home bearing gifts for the big girls.. so sweet!
they were SO excited about their valentine's day gifts from their daddy!
sunday night it was our turn.. dinner out sans kiddos.
a long time coming and much needed.
