Chase earned his purple belt in Karate through his KickStart program at school!
The kids and I went to Houston this weekend and had so much fun with my BFF Katie and her gang! They put us up at the Marriott Marquis and we got a lot of use out of the awesome rooftop pool and enjoyed a little bit of the city. We also saw Aladdin and did a lot of eating out! It was just what we needed before the last week of school!!!!
Chloe showed off both her musical and visual art skills at her Fine Arts Night tonight! It started with an abridged performance of “The Greatest Showman,” followed by an art show around the school. This girl’s got talent!
I had a fun, eventful Mother’s Day with my kiddos! I picked them up from their dad’s this afternoon to do lunch and a movie. On the way to lunch Chase was like, “Uhhhhh…. Mom??” I looked over and three of his braces’ brackets had come off and the wire was just hanging there (like, a good inch and a half long)! I called the orthodontist’s emergency line but they couldn’t do anything today and the earliest they could get him in was 5:30 tomorrow. Ummmmm…. There was no way he was going to be able to eat… or concentrate on his STAAR test tomorrow… or just LIVE without getting STABBED until then. So we headed to Home Depot for wire cutters, then to the drug store for orthodontic wax. Moms get things DONE, I tell you!
The kids got me very sweet gifts. Chase made me a “binge watching kit” and Chloe decorated a cake and made me a very fitting keychain (considering the events of the day). I love my babies so much!!
Happy Easter! We decided instead of dying eggs this year that we would make them out of gluey string… a project that proved to be very messy and a little challenging. They turned out OK, though!
After my dad passed away, my brother and I sold his house “as is.” It was in really bad shape, which made my brother and I very sad because my grandma used to take a lot of pride in her home. Well, the people that bought it flipped it and did an incredible job. It was so nice to see the house with “life” in it again. Here are some before and after shots….
For Chase’s Birthday Experience this year we did a Harry Potter Escape Room! It was so much fun. We didn’t beat it, but they said for a team of 2 we got pretty far! We made a great team, and celebrated with lunch at Mod Pizza.
I am so grateful he still enjoys spending some quality time with Mom. I’ll hold onto it as long as I can!
I took the kids to see Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban In Concert and it was so amazing! The kids are begging to go to more of them. They played the whole movie on a giant screen, with all the orchestrations played live by the orchestra/choir. Such a cool experience!
