Friday Randomness

I don't really have much to say, but I feel like it's time for a new post.'ve been warned. haha!

*We had some snow here on Tuesday. It wasn't cold enough to stick, but for about 10 minutes the kids were in heaven. The next day it was 60 degrees. Now both kids have runny noses...go figure.

* We went to ride the train today and then had a picnic lunch. It's amazing how good I feel after being in the sun for a few hours. I guess that Vitamin D really is good for you~

* I finally got my hair done today. Suddenly I feel 10 pounds lighter and two shades more tan. Maybe it wasn't the sun after all that made me feel so good. I celebrated by eating most of the leftover dip I made for last night's Bunco...there goes feeling 10 lbs. lighter

*All of a sudden Clark can't go anywhere without his keys, Thomas and Percy. Is this a boy thing or is he just weird? (maybe you shouldn't answer that). He also carries his sock monkey everywhere but I won't let him take it out of the house...I'm hoping it's just a phase. If not he will have some serious OCD tendencies to work through

* His favorite book right now is Goodnight Moon. Every time I read it he likes to find the mouse on each page. It excites him every single time like it's the first time he's ever discovered it. I think it's really cute...(except when I'm tired and just want to read the stinkin' book and get to bed)

* Once Clark is down Scarlett and I play a game. I'm tired of her beating me in Wii bowling, so until I get some practice time in I've made her play something else. My favorite is Memory. It makes me feel like I'm doing something for my brain-especially since I haven't played Sudoku since I made it past the "easy" level. I dread when she chooses Candy Land...for some reason I'm just not a fan of that game. I guess it's too easy-even for my lazy brain.

Happy Weekend!

A Plug for Mac's

If it wasn't for this nifty Photo Booth gadget, we may never have a home cooked meal. ha!! The kids have also used it to make some pretty entertaining movies...but I will spare you from having to watch those :)

Brody has a tennis convention once a year and it is almost always on Valentine's. We aren't really "into" the holiday, though I did remind him of the time when we were dating and he left a gift on my doorstep every day the week leading up to Valentine's Day. Oh the good old days. ha!
This year, I got candy and a Starbucks card-which was fabulous. He knew I would need an extra boost while he was gone!
I have given up on a normal smile from Clark
I made these last year, too but it was easy and fast so I made them again. At least this year Scarlett is big enough that she did all the cards-even cut out the hearts herself! :)
I stole this idea from crafty Jaime. She made similar ones for Halloween. They really can be for just about anything!
While we were partying it up at our place, Brody was enjoying the most snow Dallas has ever had at one time!
the place they had dinner
boys will be boys...what is it with them?! haha
the boys minus Trey
Some of the sessions had to be indoors because of the weather. These are the tiny nets they use at clinics to teach Scarlett's age. They're so cute!
We were all ready for Brody to come home! Scarlett missed him a lot this time and made him this welcome home card. He is for sure our "Soperman" ha :)

Ladies Retreat

A couple of weeks ago was our Ladies Retreat. I LOVE going and getting to spend time with the ladies at church. It is so much fun eating, laughing and worshipping with them. I really missed Jenn this year, but hopefully next year we will all be together again.

Jaime in our room
Jaime and I had a room to ourselves this year. It was a nice room, but we could hear the ladies snoring in the room next door :) Also, when we were brushing our teeth all of a sudden we heard a man talking. We both froze mid brush because it seriously sounded like he was in the bathroom with us! I guess it was just coming through the vent, but it was weird!!

Jaime, Mom and Martha at breakfast
playing a game with Sylvia, Paige and Darla
lunch with Jaime and Melissa
While I was gone, it seems Brody and the kids had a good time too:
