Family fun

This post is just full of random laughs we had as a family!  We rolled right through spring time with kids who got along, minimal fighting, happy to go to school, and just good times. 

I love making Isaac laugh.  He had drawn on this balloon so I staged his bed while he was at school.

Chloe got some good riding days to get her boy ready for show season! 

Then one night this weirdo rang our doorbell and wouldn't do anything but giggle.   

The movie A Dog's Purpose was out in theaters and Chloe, Robynn, and I went to watch it.  We had a pact that we could all cry as much as we needed.  Chloe was the only brainiac who brought her own real Kleenex....Robynn and I struggled through with movie theater napkins. 

We happened to watch the movie on the anniversary date of us adopting Lucy. 
There are not enough words to describe my love for this dog.  She just gets me!
I love her sense of humor and couldn't be happier that she's been in our home.

Look at this guy!
The first medal he's ever won!
2nd place in the Ellis county shooting sports competition.   

Go Amelia!!!  Beat daddy!

And in March we celebrated Papa's 60th Birthday.  He didn't want a fuss, and nobody wants a fussy papa, so we obeyed and only had them over for a spontaneous dinner after golf. 

The grandma's were full of smiles after Amelia & Caroline's spring music program!
We are so happy they make it to so many events.   

And this right here.  I'm just getting this out on the interwebs for proof someday.
All three girls did their own versions.  Amelia & Caroline already taped theirs up but this is Chloe's.

Valentine's Tradition

 For several years now Royce and I have opted to stay in for Valentine's Day and serve the kids a candlelight dinner.  It is really satisfying now that they look forward to it each year and are so happy to spend the evening at home with us.  And for that night, there's truly nowhere else we'd rather be.  We seated the kids with roses, served sparkling juice, and had their traditional dessert of jello with cherries.  The kids then served our meal to us in the same fashion.  I just love it.   

Near the same time as Valentine's Day was the Mother/Son dance.  Isaac and I were able to go and we danced the night away.  It was a really great night with him filled with hugs, snuggles, and laughter.  This by has my heart!  He's just the best.
