|On Friday we told them together that they'd all earned roles in The |
Nutcracker. (Will, Katie, and I accidentally photobombed the moment.)
Oh, and because I finally - a little late to the party, as always - downloaded a pic collage app, here's a side-by-side comparison of Will on Saturday and Will on the exact same day four years ago.
3. I mentioned in my recent New Year's Resolutions post that I hope to make over our playroom - turning it into more of a family and music room - this year. I spent the last two weeks cleaning out what we didn't want anymore and then starting to shop for the more grown-up pieces I need to anchor the room. I have discovered, however, that Tom and I have different visions for the finished product. For example, I bought a couch, selected a coffee table, and started narrowing down entertainment centers, and Tom bought...this:
I admit that a cross between a scoff and a laugh escaped my lips when I saw Tom in all his light show glory, but he and the kids are giddy about the possibilities so I have decided to let the sound-driven multi-colored lights stay. This is going to be one heck of a family and music room when we're finished with it!
4. This guy started his sixth fall and 12th overall semester of professor-ing at TAMU on Monday! I forgot to take a picture of him as he headed out the door in the morning, so rather than his "I'm off to mold young minds" look, I captured his "I survived the first day of a new school year" look.
5. Happiness Highlights:
|Tux slept on Hallie's bed three times this week. It's amazing how much|
happier she is when she wakes up to find him snuggled in near her.
|Tom: "So why are we buying underwear for Hallie's feet?"|
|Will and his classmates got to help our principal |
celebrate her birthday - our elementary school rocks!
|Will and I drove past Mueller (my maiden name) Elementary |
School last weekend and of course had to stop and take a picture.
|Hallie lost yet another tooth. She has like seven functional teeth left|
in her mouth right now...bring on the soup, applesauce, and milkshakes!
Happy Friday, Chasing Roots!
