Seems like my camera always takes a mini sabatical around this time of year... after the Christmas holidays and before our busy spring schedule starts up. This year it hung around a little longer for our ski trip, but now it's sleeping quietly which means no visual this post...
A few highlights from our recent week:
- We are getting use to being dog owners. We are reminded that puppies like to chew whatever is left out in the yard... shoes, bug nets, charcoal bags...
- I worked the book fair at A&A's school this past week and made a mental note to always personally go with my kids to purchase their books at the times offered opposed to sending money with them to school. Otherwise, they might wind up wasting their money on "One Direction" posters for prospective boyfriends or spending $3.99 on a bookmark.
- Our HEB, a place we frequent at least twice a week, is undergoing a major renovation and this week the Sushi counter opened. That only excites me because I know the homeade tortilla station isn't far behind.
- Wes spent all day upgrading a new tank for Spike (bearded dragon lizard). These little lizards can be finicky when it comes to the temperature so with the new tank, the lights have to be lowered and we he had to make a new top to keep the air enclosed and so heat won't escape. Hoping this does the trick and he perks up a bit this week.
- Wes and I signed up for the Tough Mudder Run in Austin in April. Yes, this is the 12 mile, 25-obstacle course where you have to crawl through ice water, get shocked, and cross the finish line covered in mud from head to toe. We're crazy... but I'm looking forward to doing it together.
- Saturday, Avery, Toppe, & Mimi and I went to see the Lion King in Austin. It was AWESOME. This was our Christmas present to Toppe & Mimi. Love our girl days.
On a very sad note, this week we were saddened to hear of the passing of twin boys that were born prematurely to our dear friends, the Schultz's. We will continue to pray for Trae and Cyndi and their families as they mourn the loss of their angels and take the steps to heal. Please keep them in your prayers.
