Life Lately

Well, it is the middle of March, so guess I better update the blog :).   We have been up to life as usual....

Rebecca's school celebrated Dr. Seuss Day.
Everyone got to dress up in something related to him.
We went with a basic Cat in the Hat.

Most Friday mornings, Rachel and I go to the Waffle House.
She has her waffle and bacon and we chat, then off to school!
March weather has been crazy... warm and then super cold.
But on a nice day we all went for a walk in the woods.
The girls and I have been talking about Lent.
I am doing a Bible study from She Reads Truth and I order this game
to teach the girls about Lent.
I love my dentist! I had an appointment and finally got to meet
the puppies! They are brother and sister and spend their days
at the office.
Rebecca was able to participate in AWANA Games this year! Her team did great
and the Sparks won first place!! So proud of her!
We had a rainy night and the girls wanted to go out and play in the rain,
so we did.
Game night.
We have Luck Charms on St. Patrick's Day.
We had a busy Friday...
Muffins with Mom
Lunch and a St. Patty's Day mint milkshake.
And we had to go see Beauty and the Beast.

Finally, this... The lady who has designed my blog, sent me all the old blog designs that she
had made for me over the years. Can't believe the girls were ever that little.

Febraury Fun

Well, it is the last day of February, so I better blog about what we have been up to the past few weeks.

The girls spent the weekend with my parents and Raphael and I were able to attend a couple of
different marriage events going on. We went to Fight Night at 12Stone with Drs. Parrot.
And the night before we were at Hebron church for a Valentine's Date night.

Soccer games in the rain :)

The girls were out of school for President's Day, so we went for a
walk at the park.
Rachel had tennis and we spent time at the park playing.
Rebecca and I made treats and delivered them to our neighbors.
We have been taking Lola to the vet.
Celebrated my 44th birthday!!
We met for dinner at a new pizza place at the mall, it was good food!
Birthday pictures with the family and opening gifts.
Raphael had it all decorated really cute for me.

Legos and Lola.

Catching Up

Life got a little busy, I was really sick for a week and I have been lazy about blogging, so going to try and catch up a little on here before any more time passes.

At the beginning of the month, my Mom and I went to a women's retreat
in North Carolina. We went last year and this year was just as good.
We had a little free time and drove into Asheville. We went to an old
fashioned mercantile kind of store. We stopped by a famous chocolate shop and
walked over to see Saint Lawrence Basilica.
The theme this year was ABIDE and we all got a tshirt.
We came home from NC and headed straight into a Super Bowl party!!
We were pretty excited for the Falcons to be playing in the big game.
Amy's first Super bowl!
We had some friends over. The game started off great, but we
were not happy with the final score.
Rebecca is back to soccer. She is playing with the same girls
from the fall, so that is fun!
Rainbow on the way to school.
Wearing her charm bracelet from Abuela!
I was sick.
Snap Chat filters are a fun way to pass the time.
And we celebrated Valentine's Day!
Thank you Papa Johns for heart shape pizza!!
This bus is goin to be the death of me! Each morning all traffic
stops and the kids climb on. But the kids are never waiting at
the bus stop, so it takes forever... like 10 minutes!
Just drives me crazy :)

That is about it.
Looking forward to the weekend!!

Life Lately

It's February!!
I have always had a "love/hate" with February,
I love that it is my birthday month and Valentine's Day,
but growing up in MT it felt like the longest and coldest month.
I just have to make it through this month and in my mind, March, is
spring!! Which is one step closer to summer!!!

A few pictures of what we have been doing lately......
Rachel had braces put on  this week. This is the last picture of her without braces
for the next two years.
She is adjusting fairly well to the braces. There
is definetly a learning curve and her mouth was pretty sore.

After braces, we picked up REbecca and went to Children's Health Care
of Atlanta and Rachel had an x-ray of her hand taken. By the end of
the day, both of the girls were worn out.
Rebecca has been battling a cold this week and I kept her home a couple of
days. We did run some errands and had pizza for lunch.
It was dress up like a book character day at school.
Rebecca went as a LaLaLoopsy girl.

That's about it!

On Sunday after church we drove into Atlanta to go see the Falcons play football.
They were playing against the Greenbay Packers and the winning team goes to the

The streets were full of people and surprisingly, a lot of Packers fans.
By the time the game started there were no empty seats.
The Falcons started strong and lead the game the entire time.

It was so loud and we stood for the entire game.
We had some very enthusiastic fans in front of us!
We had fun and glad we were able to attend the last football game at
the Georgia Dome. The Falcons won!! And they are going to the Superbowl!!
