What we've been up to lately....

 Whew....March just flew by.
We've been loving on our sweet Jack. He has a huge growth on his liver and is now having a hard time getting up and putting weight on his back legs. We are going to enjoy the time we have left with him. He is SUCH a good dog. We are going to miss him terribly.


We close on our current house in less than 2 weeks. We've been purging and playing and packing. Not fun for mom and dad but fun for the boys. 



We had math night at school and Alex enjoyed playing math games and beating mom! ha!



Celebrated St. Patrick's day by taking Evan out to lunch and spending some good quality time together.



Celebrated Pa-paw's birthday and had fun in St. Louis!


Love my brother and sister!!



Went to Denver and my friend Kelly and I gave our Unconvention Online talk about building trust and sending happy mail and the power of the handwritten note. SO fun to be able to hang out with friends and their families and enjoy a few days of the gorgeous Colorado weather!






And welcome April!! Looking forward to some warmer weather!!!

finally....


 You guys...I have two boys who are obsessed with legos and superheroes and we have been counting down until the Lego Batman movie was out in theaters.

This was their face after I told them we would be seeing the lego movie Friday after school.

They were so excited. I LOVE seeing their faces light up when they realized the day was finally here.


We gave the movie two thumbs up from this crew. We all loved it. Lots of laughs and giggles from all of us. I looked over and saw Alex had tears "leak out" (as he says) three different times during the movie. Happy tears and sad tears. #allthefeels





 They've been playing with these and making up stories all weekend. So fun to see them being creative and having fun! If you haven't seen it...go! It's a good one!

Carmel Valley...

Last weekend I got to get away with some girl friends for a relaxing mini vacation. We didn't have work. We didn't have kids or responsibilities. It was amazing. We actually got to sit and catch up and laugh. Oh...the laughter and jokes. It was nice to visit and take some time away. We had a lot of fun visiting the wineries, making dinner, playing games and exchanging our favorite things. 
This trip was definitely what I needed to begin 2017.
