This morning while I was in the shower a certain little 3 year old knocked on the door asking to brush her "toofies". I told her she could and then there was another knock on the door to which the 3 year old opened the door to access the need and told her not yet and shut the door. She locked it too. She said, momma I locked the door so you can have some "pivacy". Thank you so much for that!!!! She proceeded to tell me she found some ponytail holders to match her outfit and that she needed some lipstick. Say what.... I don't wear makeup often so I really don't know where she came up with that. I said I don't think you do missy and she laughed. The girl keeps us in stitches:):):)

A night of bowling

We went bowling last night with lots of friends from church. We had lots of fun. I quit after 1 game. I was tired. We had a group of 40 or more, so there was lots of fellowshipping going on!!

Kyndal had a palate expander put in on Tuesday. She has been doing the prep that led up to the expander for the last two weeks. For 28 days we will tighten the expander every night before bed. Last night was our first time. She is such a trooper and so easy going.

After the 28 days, if it's how they want it, it stays in for 6 months. If it's not how they want it, we will tighten it a few more days and then stays for 6 months. Then she will wear a retainer at night until it's time for braces.

Thankful to get this corrected while she is still young. Thankful for good dentists and orthodontists. Thankful for Kyndals sweet easy going spirit.

PS: keeping that thing clean is a JOB:)

Dad's/Hubby's birthday...

We went to dinner Sunday night with friends which was his birthday.  So we did our traditional birthday dinner on Monday night.  The birthday person picks the menu and opens their gifts. 

Craig picked BBQ chicken, baked beans, and corn on the cob

Gifts from the girls

Kyndal made Dad lots of bracelets!

They found a card for him and they thought it was hilarious!

Now his gift from me.  Grandmother, those are the Reese's PB eggs, and he says they make him think of you.  That's one of the reasons I got them:)

Cupcakes and ice cream

Happy Birthday to you, we hope you have MANY more wonderful birthdays:)

Weekend Recap

Friday, Craig and I had an afternoon dentist appointment (that went very well thankfully), and a sweet friend kept the girls for us. She told us to go out afterwards, so we did. We walked around the mall and went to dinner. We had a really good time.

Saturday, we had a birthday party and had good friends over for dinner.

Sunday, we had church, The nursing home ministry the girls are a part of, and ladies night out.

It was a pretty busy weekend, and we enjoyed it all:)

Around here...

It's still freeeeezzzzzing cold.  I just heard the weather man say we are only going down to 10 tonight like that was a pleasant thing.  I guess considering it's usually 0 or below, that is a nice thing:(  I'm SO ready for summer.  There is still a ton of snow on the ground too.

The girls are still loving dance/gymnastics.

I'm so ready to start running outside and signing up for 5K's.  It's still my goal one day to at least run a half marathon.  I do love going to the gym to though.

I looked up curriculum for next year and realized Anna Claire will begin school next year.  Crazy!!!!
We will have a 5th grader, 3rd grader, and 4Ker (I made that up).  They are growing up fast.

Both girls are still doing really well in school this year.  Still maintaining A/B honor roll.

They are taking their SAT's next week.

Kyndal begins orthodontic care tomorrow.  She begins the process of having a palate expander put in.  It will be in at least 7 months, then wear a retainer until time for braces.  Hoping this process doesn't cause her pain and fixes the issue with her teeth.

March is a pretty busy month, but maybe that will make the spring get here sooner:):)

We have a birthday party this weekend where we are suppose to go sledding:) 

I guess that's about it for now....
