So I said I would post pictures about 4 days ago, and I am just now getting to it! No excuses other than life!
Rewind to last weekend...we had our belated holiday party for my company. This was the best party yet...my 13th one! Dang am I old!?!?!?! The girls were lucky enough to stay the night at the Alexanders! The girls were thrilled to have them and even though Kim couldn't see the kids, I think she still really enjoys them being there! Meanwhile, the staff and significant others all headed to Cleveland for dinner, the Cavs game, and a night away! It was "hat" night and we got these super warm hats...which were adorable and perfect for the cold weather!
|So cool to see Lebron in action...even if they lost!|
Meawhile, back in Columbus....
|The kids insisted on a bath with a bath bomb, so of course the girls ran them to the mall to pick one out! Spoiled rotten! I mean just look at those smiles!|
The kids were exhausted but had the time of their lives! They can barely wait to go back there three times a week this summer!
This past Monday was Grey's 100th day of Kindergarten! We made him a shirt that said "I survived 100 days" with 100 Angry Bird Band-aids stuck on to it!
|Miss Sassy Pants!|
On Tuesday, we headed to a potential sitter's house...Sonia. I dressed the kids super cute because of this....and it was a good excuse:)
|This girl has no personality I tell ya!|
So we headed to see Sonia, the potential sitter I referred to in my earlier post. I promised the kids Wendys if they behaved...lets just say the kids ended up with Krogers lunch and they are lucky they got that. No excuses...but maybe their behavior was a sign that Sonia just wasn't the right fit for us:)
Here are the cute boys waiting for the bus and freezing their tushes off!
And after the stress of finding a new sitter and life in general, we were very happy to welcome the weekend. Danielle, Kristen, and I headed to Barre and then met at Kristen's house for some pizza, snacks, wine, and puzzles while the kiddos played!
Sky came over for a bit on his way home and took the kids home. Kristen put the boys to bed and we had some nice girl time. Danielle headed out around 11 and because Kristen and I are such nerds, we finished the puzzle at 2am! Crazy that puzzles are the only thing that can keep me up! Luckily I was able to sleep in until 8am! (Thank you Skyler)!
Saturday was gorgeous out for a January day in Ohio! It was in the mid 50s and the sun was shining! Sky took the kids to the gym and I went to Barre and the grocery store....then we all headed up to drop Sky's car off to get his tires rotated and putz around Kohls. On the way home, Tatum and Sky played at the park while Grey and I went home to make soup! Skyler took the most epic picture of Tatum. She had just gotten a toy cell phone at Kohls, and was obsessed!
|She actually stop mid-park playin and said, Dad I need to take a picture and then acted like she was taking a selfie! Who is this girl! Tatum Kardashian (as Tutu said when she called us later!)|
We spent some time outside and then just relaxed last night. Grey and I made his Valentine Box for school! Angry Birds of course:)
Sunday was another warmer day, but windier and not quite as sunny. We went to church, played on the playground, went to Costco and DSW and then spent the rest of the day at home!
|Cousin High Fives!|
|My lil stud in his red pants!|
|If only this doll house wasn't $429 at Costco!!!|
Tomorrow is back to the grind and a new beginning at Nicole's house for Tatum. (Grey will join her on Friday).
I feel good about it and look forward to this new chapter!
On another note, Grey has been doing really well at school. Check out this email from his teacher...
I appreciate your kindness and support. Greyson's last few days of school have been great. He is on task and listening! he has also been kind to his peers. I have been praising him and I think this makes him proud. I will continue to praise his positive behavior. I think reinforcing it at home really has been helping too! Tell him to keep up the great job in kindergarten!! have a nice weekend!Knock on wood, but I am so proud of my boy and hope this improved behavior continues!
