And here is a sneak peek at our life once again via my phone.
Let me break this down for you...
Kid 1: You try every cute holiday craft there is. You use special cake pans and fancy icing.
Kid 2: Home made cookies, regular cake but cute decorations
Kid 3: Pre-sliced egg shape cookies that you can't mess up.
But you know what... they didn't seem to mind!
I finally got tired of the books on my mantle, and as we were taking them down I started flipping through the covers. Y'all. 1890. This book was Ryan's great-grandfather's. We flipped through page after page and found some letters written to family members from WWI and WWII. Incredible. Can you even imagine the stories these books could really tell?
He gets home and starts twirling. Not sure how I got so lucky.
I am sure I don't tell him that enough.
For the past two weeks, my life was all Paw Print Festival all the time. Morning noon and night it was ticket selling, money counting, game planning. Luckily, we had some pretty cute helpers.
That called for some long days, so when you leave the house at 6:27am and you don't set foot in the door again until 7:30pm - everyone gets a treat for dinner!
The day finally arrived and it was PERFECT! We seriously could not have asked for a better Texas spring day.
These two were rocking the long tees, piggies and face paint look. I was jealous.
And then Landry literally played herself to sleep. I think she walked up to Ryan, he picked her up and she was out. That sounds kind of like an amazing day of childhood to me.
And as if that wasn't enough fun - we also go to celebrate this sweet seven-year-old! Caroline is the leader of the RHM5 and God sure knew what he was doing to make her the role model for our other girls.
I'm embarrassed to admit that it took me this long to own a pair of chucks. I am not embarrassed to report that I fell in love fast. (These are the ones I got. Buy them now. I'm not even getting commission!)
What? This isn't what you wear for spring cleaning??
And that's us in an Instant!
