Selfie Trend this weekend:

We had a wonderful weekend!! 

Friday night the Mr. and TJH headed to an event at the Mr's school. Movie Under the Stars! TJH felt so special to have some one-on-one time with Daddy and it was at Daddy's SCHOOL! 

All ready to go with the essentials for a movie outside! :) 

We ended up with a lot of selfies this weekend and this was the first two handsome boys! 

TJH got to go into Daddy's classroom and go up on his reading loft! SOO cool! 

They got back late but Tuck had a BLAST! When he got home he told me he was nervous at first but then when the movie started he had so much fun! 

Saturday morning we got up early and headed to the aquarium! 

TJH and Mommy selfie once we arrived at the aquarium! 

Selfies with my girls at the aquarium! 

Love those two cuties!

When we got home from the aquarium we did some things around the house...the girls played with their tea set in their room while I organized their fall/winter clothes. 

My father-in-law got me a Yeti cup! I LOVE it and so do my little ones! :)

Pa got all the kiddos sea animals from the aquarium and the girls haven't let them out of their site since he gave them to them! 

Meet Trixie the whale shark! 

And this is Betsy the Bulga whale!

Sunday morning was great! T Man and I headed out to have breakfast with our favs Aunt J and little T at our normal place...Waffle House! And then afterwards we went grocery shopping! 

Daddy and T did some Lego building on the rainy afternoon. 

TJH did great! And Daddy really enjoyed it too! 

The neighbor kids love the Minion movies...TJH didn't know about minions until we started to play with them...well now he's a fan! :) 

And to end our really awesome weekend....Grandpa and Grandma R came for the afternoon! They brought a yummy lunch and we hung out and played all afternoon! 

Grandma R is always quick to get on the floor and play with the kiddos! They played hide-and-seek for a long time! :) 

These puppies love watching all the fun too! 

Grandma R with her girls! 

Grandpa was super impressed with TJH's scooter skills! 

And we ended our evening singing Happy Birthday to Lucy Elizabeth! She turned  9 on Sunday! 

Goodness, that was a full but amazing weekend with my family! I love weekends! But I love my family way more!

Georgia Aquarium 2015

We went to the Georgia Aquarium this weekend and had a blast! Like last year, we attended the Educator Day! But this year we had more guests with us! :)

The Mr. and I both got in free and then had a ticket each to get someone else in. Pa, G, Aunt B and A all joined us this year! So much more fun with more family! :)

We got up early and headed to ATL and got there right in time to walk around a little before getting our bands and going in!

G and Pa with the older g-kids! 

We LOVED having Aunt B with us! We don't get to see her that much so it was great to spend the day with her! 

Goodness, these kiddos were SO much fun this year! Last year was fun but this year was even more fun because they were all 3 older. 

We were allowed in an hour early so there was NO one really there! We walked as slow as we wanted and spent a ton of time with the whale sharks! The kids loved seeing the scuba divers! 

A and T were so happy to be together! 

I have a similar picture from last year like this. I see this being a yearly tradition picture! 

Pa made a stop by the gift shop and picked up some goodies for the kiddos! Meet Buck-A-Roo the penguin! 

The penguin exhibit was awesome and they are so full of energy just like our babies! 

We also go to watch the dolphin show...Dophin Tales. It was SOOO good! The kids really enjoyed it! 

Such a fun morning! 
We ate some heavy snacks before hitting the road! 
 We were in the car maybe 15 minutes before all 3 were asleep! 

We love family time together! And we really enjoy it at a fun place like the Georgia Aquarium! Like I said last year, it's wonderful when companies recognize educators! 

We will be back again next year!

This and That :)

We've had a great week so far! 

Our precious babies are keeping us smiling and laughing! We are practicing daily with the girls to say "I'm 2!" Cannot believe 2 weeks from now I'll have 2 two year olds!!! (Cue the tears!)

The Mr. and I have been meal prepping since school started back and it's great! He is so good about doing it every Sunday...he does our salads and I do breakfast! 

Beautiful veggies for our salads! 

These cuties just LOVE their Daddy!

The girls had some homework this past make a family tree! I didn't have all of my tools at home to make it more creative but here is how it turned out! 

They loved looking at the pictures! And their teachers hung it out front for everyone to see! :) 

These two make my heart flutter! Emma Kate didn't want to go to bed the other night and asked to bed rocked 3 times after she had been rocked twice...well later I checked on them and this is how I found them sleeping. In Olivia's bed with Olivia giving her love! 

I've never done Scholastic book orders in my classroom because where I taught previously most families couldn't afford buying books for their kiddos. I placed my first order at my new school with my new kiddos and it was so cool! I only had two families make orders but with their two orders I was able to get 3 free books! I got two for my classroom and choose one for TJH! He loved his new book! 

The Mr. is doing the Lego Club at school so he will be gone some afternoons/evenings. No worries...we can make it work great! Monday night I got everyone a puzzle to work on while I prepped dinner! 

We got a package this week from a very special family! Precious new outfits for our girls and gift cards for our new home. I am so blessed to have had a friendship with this family for many many years and I've loved watching them become parents and being apart of their children's lives! And I'm so happy that I can share my babies with them too! :) 

If you know me you know I have seasonal candy fall one is candy corn. But I eat them weird...I don't like the white part. I sent this to my friend L and J and they both laughed because they know about my weird way of eating candy corn. I haven't eaten too many because I'm having some stomach issues. 

When we got home yesterday EK wanted to go in the back yard for some reason...we let her and then her and Owie were playing through the cute!

The last lot is being cleared in our neighborhood. And it's across the street...when we go home yesterday TJH sat and watched for awhile! 

It's been a great week and we have a fun weekend planned!
