Yesterday, Bryan got home a little early, so we went to our favorite burger place for an early dinner...
While we were there, Jackson asked if we could get ice cream after we ate. We all laughed, then Daddy asked him what was in front of him. Jack said "a milkshake--can we get ice cream when we're done?!" He cracks us up!
Yesterday, we thought it would be fun to take the kids on dates!
Sarah asked me a couple of weeks ago if we could go to a tea room that we used to visit a lot when we lived in Ft. Worth. So I surprised her with this little invitation yesterday morning. She squealed and gave me the biggest hug.
I just adore her.
We had a delightful time!
How is she getting so big?!
For dessert, we shared a scone!
Daddy drove Jackson to a little town north of us to have a boys lunch at Babe's. Daddy had fried chicken, and Jack had chicken fried steak!
I thought it would be fun to do a theme night for dinner a couple of times a month. Our first theme night was on Friday, and it was French food! We even listened to French music while we ate. It was so much fun! We're already planning our next theme night!
I made French toast...obviously...using brioche bread!
Today was a sweet, simple day. And those days are always my favorites!
It started off with our little princess getting ready!
Then, we went to the library--the kids favorite! Our library has a reading plan for wee ones up to 4 years old. When you read a book, you fill in your sheet and bring it back to the library for a reward when it's complete. Since we read numerous books a day, J finished his form in no time!
He got a certificate, a free ice cream at a local restaurant, a toy, and a new book. He was so excited!
Then, we went to get him a much needed haircut! He did such a great job sitting in the chair all by himself again! When we got home, I told him that he looked handsome. He said, "no, I don't; I wook pretty!" Sarah and I laughed so hard! I have a feeling Daddy might not find it as funny!
Then, the kids played together!
I just love how much they love each other!
For dinner, I pulled out these silly straws that we put in their stockings at Christmas!
They loved them!
Sarah said that they were so cool, and that I'm a fun mom! You can't beat that!
Bryan and I met in 8th grade, became best friends in 9th grade, then graduated high school as sweethearts. Shortly thereafter, we were married. Then, God blessed us with our two precious children, Sarah and Jackson. We hope you enjoy these little peeks into our family's life!
