A few weeks ago our small group had a girls night at a local painting place- Junque 2 Jewels.
If your local you NEED to go.
Our group choose to do spring door hangers and they turned out so cute and it was SO much fun! 

I choose a bunny. Here's the before..

Weekend recap

Friday was absolutely beautiful- so my mom and I took the girls to our local square to take a few pictures and to play. 
Gigi with her girls 

We have a sticker chart for Addison and everytime she sleeps through the night/stays in her bed she gets a sticker. Well after a couple of weeks she finally filled it up! So Friday night we had a fun family night...and Addison got to choose everything we did. 

1st we headed to Atwoods to look at the baby chickens, ducks and bunnies. She begged us for one and promised she would keep it on her dresser ;)... It didn't work! 
After we headed to play putt-putt, one of A's favorite things to do! 
Then finished the night by eating ice cream at TCBY! 
It was a fun night with our sweet girls! 

Saturday we headed to a local egg hunt.
 Addison was beyond excited. 
Each egg was filled with coins instead of candy.
They encouraged that each child take a portion of the money they received in their eggs and donate it. We have been talking about when to talk to her about tithing -So Brent and I took advantage of this. We taught Addison all about tithing and how important it is to give to your local church. Our family does this faithly and it is amazing to see God fulfill our needs in more ways then I can count!! 
Sunday we headed to church. Addison was so excited to give her money in the offering! 
That afternoon we headed to a birthday party and then home to relax the rest of the day! 
Hope you enjoyed your weekend as much as we did! 

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding

Our church hosted kids day Sunday... And what better way to celebrate then a frozen theme! 

We had one excited princess Anna waiting to head out the door! 
They had the cutest activities for the kids.
And our very own childrens director dressed up as princess Anna.. The kids LOVED it! 

 Addison was beyond excited to see here friends dressed in their frozen outfits and was more then willing to take pictures ;) 
It was such a fun morning for all the children and just another reason why we love our church so much!

Spring break

This past week was spring break for us. I was looking forward to no schedule and some fun activities. 

Monday we hung out at home and enjoyed a quite day. 

Tuesday, we headed to the library for story time. Addison loves to go and it's a fun free activity that gets us out of the house! 

Wednesday Saylor had her 6 month appointment. ( blog post coming soon) She is healthy and growing! 

Thursday we headed to crystal bridges for a fun Art class. 
The kids got to make their own critter out of clay and decorate it. 
Addison told me- "the art was Fabulous!"

Friday was a fun day!
 Our local Jones center had a fun frozen event at the ice skating rink.
I had one very excited princess Anna! 
They had the the rink decorated with all of the Frozen characters while you got to ice skate to the Frozen soundtrack. 
It took about 30 min to get around the rink once and Addison may have screamed/cried most of the way...
But by the end she was having a great time!! 

This weekend we enjoyed the beautiful weather by playing outside while daddy worked around the house and enjoyed some fun wagon rides.
Hope you enjoyed your Spring Break!

Hebrew 11:1
Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.

Life lately

Life has been crazy busy lately and I know I am going to be sad if I don't blog about all the fun things we have been up to .. So here is a little recap! 

We went to 1st Friday on the square. I love all the events our little town offers for family's. It reminds me of Gilmore girls! :) 
Brent and I celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary! I can't believe it has already been 3 years - 2 kids later! Thankful for the blessing of doing life alongside you!
We got to go away for a much needed getaway while Gigi and Pop watched the girls! They were so excited and Saylor did fabulous on her 1st night away from me. 
Brent and I had a great time and he even spoiled me with a new treat! 
The girls and I have enjoyed the beautiful spring weather lately. We have gone on many walks and some fun park dates. 
My brother got back some of his wedding pictures and look how cute this little girl is! :) she loved being the flower girl! 
This big girl tried sweet potatoes for the 1st time.. Can you tell she LOVED them! 
We had a fun girls night at church! Love doing life with these ladies! 
The Fayetteville library had a special story time with a real princess that came to sing and read a story. Can you tell my little princess was so excited! My mom and I died laughing at all the little girls dressed up in their princess dresses. 
I helped host a baby shower for my good friend Kari's little girl Emily! We are so excited to meet this sweet baby! 

Along with bible study, school, dance and appointments life has been busy...But I wouldn't change a thing because I'm doing it with the ones I love!

 We are going to enjoy a much needed spring break with some fun activities and rest this week!

Happy Monday!
