Tom and I celebrated our 12th anniversary last Sunday, so on Saturday night the four of us held our second annual family birthday party complete with cake and candles and singing.
2. Have you heard the news?! "Friends" fans rejoice!
3. My 3rd and 1st grade children are teaching me to play chess. We began our lessons - and games, once they decided I understood enough to actually move the pieces around the board by myself - this week, and the experience has been accompanied by a host of unexpected emotions. I didn't know I could feel so overwhelmingly proud of them and so personally humbled at the same time…
|Tux kept trying to distract Will by taking his chess pieces...this |
mischief is the only reason I lasted as long as I did against Will.
5. Happiness Highlights
|He enjoys keeping me company, slowing my productivity, and |
changing the settings on my computer while the kids are at school.
|Sometimes my hubby leaves little "love notes" tucked|
under my car door handle while I'm working out at the gym.
|While their little sisters danced, Will and Kaylee, along with |
Kaylee's hip hop teacher, had a baby freeze contest. Kaylee won. :)
|Our short session of winter swimming lessons (in an actual |
pool and NOT the hot tub, as Hallie requested) started this week.
They make progress when they're the only two kids in the class!
|I think we know which of these two cuties - my niece and nephew, |
who live in Illinois where the temps are in the mid-30s - would love
visiting their aunt, uncle, and cousins in sunny, warm(er) Texas!
Linking up with High Five for Friday!
