Sprucing up for the Holidays

 Kingston's Christmas find,  4.00 ties at Target

 Best Black Friday deal at Dicks, doorbuster, yes I bought for me, and I can't say who else... they let me double up coupons on top of the doorbuster deals with no line either, bonus:)
 We got a tree too, my house smells like fresh pine,  or more specifically a Fraser Fir, love it!!

it has been proven, she is on her hands more than her feet

Feast for a King

"I can mashed potato", this is what Thanksgiving looks like at our house, lots of food, drinks & games of course.
thanks to Jess for giving me this recipe for the rolls, the kids rolled them all out and loved them, the making and the eating, we are such carb addicts.

Mock Meet

She went from a 6.00 at her last mock meet on bars, to a 9.2, woohoo!!
 they followed up the meet up with a baby shower for Ms.Elliott, to be coming in the next few weeks
I have to admit I was a little concerned for this year and had heard mention of girls getting mean in 3rd grade, not so much.  Roe has been blessed with a great group of girlfriends that are there for her in good times and bad, love them.

Dad's life

 Thankful for my hub that when I work nights he will get the kids out, cook for them, take them to church, clean, rake leaves and most of all play. This was after mourning the loss of K-State.

and take them to see Wreckit Ralph:)

Fab 50's

Of course I was disappointed I didn't take more pictures at the annual Marlatt Sock Hop, but it was a rockin good time! Thanks to all the parents and volunteers that make it possible, (that didn't include me) it was a complete success, and the music list included Gagman Style at least 4x was icing on the cake:)
 hula hooping is always a hit!

 Ashton and Xander pose for a pic

 Kingston loves anywhere the music is and rootbeer floats too:)
 the parents even hula'd a bit, love the new gym!
Jude and Luke add a twist to hula hooping

Story Time Bully

Im afraid the terrible 2's have hit, not sure what happened to my sweet boy:(  Today at his very favorite event of the week Story Time, I was mortified when he went up to maybe a 10 month old and pushed his innocent self over purposely. The babe fell back on his head, cried and the mother and several other moms gasped as we quickly followed out the crying baby, to console the mom and babe. Of course it was free book day for read to your preschooler week so the room was packed, pretty sure they are going to remember the story time bully getting kicked out , we may have to sit out a few weeks.

No half-time, No overtime, No time-outs

A little peak of Monroe's gymnastics world the past 4 months preparing for the upcoming meet season. Only possible with the amazing Coach Jerkya who has been strong through surgery, chemo, PT & now this week at MD Anderson. Prayers for her Doctors and that she would be at peace with what the specialists decide is the next step in her treatment, we love you Jeryka!

The Boo Crew

 Lennon, the littlest in our crew dressed as a little ducky, so cute!
 We lost a few littler ones and picked up a few by the end of our night, posing after the neighborhood haunted house with a few castmembers
 Helping in kindergarten, I felt like I needed to dress up this year. I found the costume I should have been in the neighborhood and had to get a pic with the cute homemade starbucks:)
We need more steps, our crew seems to be growing!
There was an odd number to play mummy wrap and Jude had his heart set on being Mrs.Sandmann's partner.
Kingston entertained himself in the kindergarten room, he is ready

the cheap tp mummy wrapped pretty well
