Project Life | Weeks 12-13

Week 12 I turned 37...kept believe how fast the years are creeping up on me. We had dinner with our Denver family at PF Chang's...one of my favorite restaurants.

I was able to get away with my mom and some of our dear friends to Las Vegas for a wonderful weekend. We got massages, relaxed, saw the Millionaire Quartet, ate good food, walked on the Strip, and made some great memories. Hank took care of our little ones so I could get away and relax. I really appreciate these times!

Week 13 was the last week of school before Spring Break. Grandpa Don flew in and will be taking the boys back to Arizona for a 10 days. That will be the longest time I have ever been away from them.

Taylor had a dance competition and her group did great! All three kids were given goldfish leftover from a retirement party that we attended. To keep the goldfish alive, we went and bought them filtered tanks, decorations for the tanks, and fish food. Taylor named her fish Lucy. Landon named his fish Chuck. Ryland named his fish Nemo. Sadly, all three fish died within five days.

Project Life | Weeks 3 & 4

Week 3 was pretty great! Ryland finally got his eyeglasses. I am hoping that they stay on him and actually help. He prefers to not have them on so that could be a challenge. We celebrated Taylor's birthday on the 19th so I included her invitation in this week's spread.

My parents came in town for Taylor's birthday and that made it special. And I included a few photos from Taylor's birthday celebration at Chuck E. Cheese...I couldn't talk her out of that location :)

Week 4 included Taylor's actual birthday on Tuesday. Since the kids had Monday off of school, we took my parents to the Downtown Aquarium. We ate lunch there while the mermaids swam in the aquarium...it was great. Sadly, on Tuesday Taylor came home with a fever. She ended up having the flu for the rest of the week.

Taylor's fever broke on Friday so she was able to compete in her first dance competition for Starstruck. However, Hank had to stay home with the boys who were down with the flu. The kids have missed a few days of school this week. I can't wait to they are healthy again...it's not fun being sick.

Project Life | Weeks 1 & 2

We welcomed in the New Year with Grandpa Don and Grandma Carol. Hank and Don put up the trampoline...

went to see the movie "Walking with Dinosaurs" with us as well as played rounds of Mexican train.

Week 2 the kids headed back to school after a two-week break. Taylor and I put away all of the Christmas decorations and I redecorated my mantle for the New Year. We got back into the swing of things, including music lessons, dance and homework.

The kids wore Broncos clothing to school before a big game and had their bi-annual dentist appointment this week. And best of all, we drove up to Ft. Collins to see one of my best friends from high school and her adorable family. We just wish we lived closer to them!
