weekend wrap-up!

Well once again...it's been about 3 weeks since I've posted. We went to Texas for a week, life has been busy but fun, and the kids are growing like crazy. I mean, Emma is going to be 2 in less than a week.....WHAT?!?! 

John and I both got an iPhone 6 and they came in on Thursday. Woohoo!

Thursday evening John was doing a service project with the senior adult choir so it was the kids and I  hanging out. 

Hudson and Emma fight so well together but they also play so well together and love each other like crazy. Love them!

Friday morning Emma picked out her outfit. We changed before we left the house to go run errands. :)

On our way home from Target Hudson told me, "It's time to rock n roll!" hehe!

Emma was all about the crazy outfits this weekend. In this picture she was wearing one of my camis around her neck as her "sarf" with a too small pool hat. She found my pile of clothes after cleaning out her closet. :)

Friday night after dinner we walked to go get ice cram. I'm thankful for stain remover.

Hudson has been alphabet obsessed for a while now and Emma is following in his footsteps. Emma looked up and saw the "Edgewood Creamery" sign and yelled, "yook ABCs!" and they were starstruck.

Friday night they wore their new skeleton jams.

They've been wearing their pairs from last year up until last week but Emma's were fitting like a crop top and capris. It's crazy to think that Emma's are the same size that Hudson wore last year. 

Saturday morning snuggles with my favorite littles.

John and Emma went to the McWane Center on Saturday morning and I got to spend a little one-on-one time with my oldest.

Since Hudson goes to school 3 days a week and Emma only goes 2, I feel like I get so much more one-on-one time with her so it was so fun to have just a Hudson and mommy morning.

We baked a cake to take to our friends' house that night.

Hudson had so much fun! And he did so great. For birthday celebrations in his class, instead of the birthday kid bringing cupcakes or cookies, they bring in a cake mix, frosting, and sprinkles. The whole class makes the cake together and then the birthday kid gets to take the cake with the teacher to the oven. Then all of the kids get to frost their own cupcake. I love that they do this! Plus, the kids with summer birthdays (Hudson) will also have a chance to do this. I absolutely love his teachers this year!

The taste test. Love him!

Our cake tasted great but when I went to invert the bundt pan, the cake completely fell apart. I've made this cake hundreds of times so I was so mad at myself when that happened. But John suggested I turn it into a trifle and it was incredible. I'll post the recipe soon!

Saturday night we went to dinner at some friends house. Emma picked her outfit once again. Even down to her two bows. :)

Hudson and Dante are such sweet buddies. He is almost 2 years older than Hudson but they played so well together!

And doesn't everyone sort marbles while wearing a football helmet?

Dante's daddy is a drummer so he has a drum set in his room. Hudson LOVED it.

We went to church on Sunday morning, then had a relaxing day at home. It was wonderful. Sunday night Hudson practiced writing his name and Emma was jealous. Girlfriend loves pens and paper!

selfies, sweaters, & Switzerland! {weekend wrap up}

Happy Monday! We had a really great weekend. Friday morning I checked my planner and was so excited to see a completely open weekend. We've been so busy so it is always nice to have a free weekend to relax and do nothing.

I found my phone after Emma had been playing with it.....full of selfies!!! ha!

And let's talk about the creepy factor of these 2.....COMPLETELY UNEDITED!! hahaha!

It's been almost 2 weeks now since Emma has slept with her pacis! I have had these hiding in a cabinet in the kitchen (because for some reason I was too emotional to throw them away) but finally decided it was time. So of course I took a picture first. I'm so proud of my big girl who is now 100% paci free! She will also be 2 in less than a month! How?!?

I am OBSESSED with this cardigan I got several months ago. Emma just discovered it and she's pretty crazy about it too. I read about it on Pinterest Told Me To. It's what she calls "the blardigan" because it's part blanket, part cardigan. It's the softest thing ever. 

Hanging out in the backyard on Friday evening. Love these 2!

On Saturday we ran errands and had lunch at Jason's Deli. That evening we went on a family walk and ended up at the park.

Hudson had a collision with a little boy on a bike and got a bloody lip and a cut on his knee. When he saw the blood he was SO EXCITED because it meant he had a legitimate reason to get a bandaid! haha!

Sunday it was FINALLY revealed that we are going to SWITZERLAND next summer for the Chapel Choir mission tour!!!!! We will also be visiting Germany, France, and Italy. Oh my word I am excited!

My silly boy on Sunday night. He said, "Look mommy. I am a cow!" haha! love that kid.

our week!

We've had a great week over here! And I am looking forward to this weekend. When I looked at my planner this morning to see what we had going on....it was BLANK!! Woohoo!! It's always nice to have a weekend with nothing to do. 

Tuesday night we hosted Supper Club at our house. We had so much fun and the kids' favorite part was of course dessert.

This was their first time having cheesecake and needless to say, they loved it.

We eat supper at church on Wednesday nights. The kids love it because they're guaranteed chocolate milk and dessert. My girl LOVES chocolate. To her, anything that is chocolate is "chock-chock milk." So she was enjoying some "chock-chock milk and chock-chock milk cake!" :) 

On Thursday morning when I opened my bible to work on my bible study I found this. I remember when Emma did this last year when she was around a year old. Love this so much. 

While the kids were in school on Thursday I had some errands to run and then got to enjoy a kid-free lunch with my sweet friend, Jen! Love her!

MELT MY HEART. Emma brought this home from school on Thursday. 

And just now when I was uploading pics from my phone I found these. One of Hudson's legs...

And one of Emma's leg. Love these littles so much. Have a great weekend, y'all!

#woodslifeeveryday2014 week 37

Day 253: We stayed home all day since Emma wasn't feeling well. When she went to bed she was back to her normal self. I'm so thankful for our day at home. They played so well together and were so sweet all day. Love these two.

Day 254: Picnic dinner and fun at the park tonight!

Day 255: Having fun at Audrey and Addison's birthday party tonight!

Day 256: Family walk this afternoon with my favorite people! We found a stick bug and explored all around our neighborhood. We finished off our night at E&B's house for dinner. Fun Saturday!

Day 257: Their favorite thing right now is watching me dance in the video monitor. Listening to their giggles while I act a fool is the best.

Day 258: I said, "smile!" and they started eating the heads of their Zubels. #reallife

Day 259: The little one kept chalking all over the board and the big one was getting annoyed. So daddy stepped in a drew a line. It actually worked! Ha!
