Throw Back Thursday --- Tressie Edition

This sweet little thing is turning FIVE on Sunday!

Here's a quick glance at Miss Tressie at her birthday parties over the years.


Looking forward to two {yes, two} fun magical unicorns and rainbow parties this weekend.

Sunday Funday...In the Snow!

So maybe we didn't get hammered like the forecast said we might, but we got four inches or so.
Enough to play in.
So we busted out the 4-wheeler and the saucer sled and had some fun!

At the end of our sledding time, me and John Wayne took turns taking each other for a ride, without the kids.
It's amazing that one of us didn't end up going through the fence.
Good times!

It was bitterly cold, so we of course needed some hot chocolate to warm up our rosy cheeks when we were done.

Glad we finally got enough snow to play in a little!

Happy Heart Day

We celebrated Valentine's Day up big.
Me and T will take any reason to celebrate!
Friday I needed to run to Lamar that morning for work.
So I loaded the littles up with me.
We had a big day planned: lunch at McDonalds, going to see the Paddington Bear movie and ice cream.
Well, two out of the three happened.
Important note: when Goggling movie times, make sure that you are in the right state.
Um yeh, Paddington Bear was playing in 6:45 that night.
It was however playing in Lamar, MISSOURI at 1PM.
So after dropping $70 bucks at Wal-Mart for two new movies, a bird and a dinosaur, this was no longer "the worst Valentine's Day date ever."
It was a beautiful afternoon when we got home, so the kids played with their bottle baby.
That night we had our special Valentine's dinner.
It was a very fancy occasion (thanks to Miss T's orders).
GW even wore his bow tie! (It came with his shirt we had bought for family pictures and he had never worn it, so we decided it was the perfect opportunity!)
Goofy kid!

On Saturday, Valentine's Day, we had several specially themed meals and snacks.
We spent our evening watching the Wildcats play hoops and eating pizza.
Made for a great Valentine's Day!

Monday, John Wayne and I both had the day off from work (President's Day).
We had a day in the city full of errands and appointments, including the dentist for all.
But, we started the morning with Dunkin Donuts, so that always makes for a good day, right?!

So here we are again, the weekend.
What do you have planned? 
More Wildcat hoops for us tonight and then we have a lazy weekend of doing nothing planned.
There's a big snow storm forecasted...we shall see!!!
