Woo Pig SOOIE! Razorbacks! Arkansas! Flag!

My mom bought the girls a new Razorback cheerleading outfit this week. Luckily we actually have something to cheer about. Our basketball hogs have been doing great this year and we are so excited!

When Sadie calls the hogs she likes to add "Arkansas! Flag!" to the end. I have no idea where she got that but she is convinced that is how it goes. Works for me!

Sleet Day

I was really bummed when I found out we were only expected to get sleet and ice instead of snow. I love at least one good, pretty snow. Luckily when sleet piles up it looks like snow to my almost 4 year old. Sadie was so excited about all the "snow." I will admit it has made for a nice couple of snow days with my people. Josh has been home with us too which is a huge bonus. 

While waiting to go outside the girls enjoyed a little down time. Such a rough life.
I told Sadie before she could play I wanted a picture. She tried really hard to get her sister to cooperate. It's an impossible task these days.
They sure look cute in their cold weather clothes that are 2 sizes too big. I bought new clothes this year and wanted them to wear them at least two years. Mission accomplished. 
Yeah, Sophie was done.
Sadie was so excited to sled. I actually think she remembered it from the year before. Josh's homemade sled isn't fancy but it is perfect for these two crazies. 
It was so cold. A little hard to enjoy it when you're freezing your face off.
Sadie is almost always willing to stop and pose for a picture...
...Sophie is not. You have to catch that girl on the move. 

After their fun outside it was time for pajamas again.
Both girls are really into playing with each other right now. Well, Sophie always wants to play with Sadie. Sadie isn't always as enthusiastic but she is getting better. 
A day off isn't complete without some rest time. We have all enjoyed our time at home together. Looks like we get another day today as well. It's nice for a few days but I'm officially ready for spring.

Valentine Fun

We have had a good week of Valentine fun. 

This year for Sadie's valentines I wanted to do something cute, practical, and allergen-free. I decided to go with puzzles because who doesn't love a puzzle?!
For Sophie's valentines I just copied what I did for Sadie when she was her age. Poor second child. I hope she doesn't need therapy later in life. 

Valentines are the easy part of Valentine's Day. The hard part? The box. This year is the first time Sadie has been asked to bring a box. I did not have time or desire for anything fancy so I decided on a simple design. It actually turned out super cute and Sadie loved it..

I actually saved it because I plan to use it again next year. Genius. 

Another thing that causes me stress for holidays...teacher gifts. This year I went with a small gift card to the restaurant nearby and a super cute cookie a friend made. The cookies were so cute! Too pretty to eat. 

Sadie had a fun time at her school party. She passed out (tossed) Valentines to her friends and loved getting some in return.

She was so excited to go through her box.
I am so thankful for Sadie's class, her teachers, and sweet friends. It has been hard for me having her in "big girl school" and seeing her happy makes it so much better.

First school party was a success! 

Unfortunately this sweet love bug missed her party. She has been sick for awhile now. Hoping and praying she is on the mend.

We have spent lots of time snuggling and taking selfies the last few days. 

Today was our first annual Valentine's Day breakfast. I have always loved Vakentine's Day. Even when I was single I loved it. It's just a sweet cheesy holiday. I want my girls to love it too. Even though Josh and I tell them daily how much we love them, why not dedicate an entire day for it?! 

We had donuts, fruit, chocolate milk, and a few happies for each of them. Sadie loved everything.

Sophie loved it all too! 

Cinderella stopped by for a little dancing. What is Valentine's Day without dancing?!
So thankful for a fun, memorable week with my girls.

Happy Valentine's Day to you!!

Happy New Year

Here we are, another year. I'd love to spend more time blogging this year but it isn't exactly one oft goals. We'll just see what happened. I did ask Sadie about her goals and this is what she had to say.
2014 was full of great memories. It wasn't the best year I've ever had but it was full of blessings. I have high hopes for 2015. Let's do this!

Weekend Randomness

As I scrolled through my phone I found a few pictures I want to keep on my blog. They are completely random so I am throwing them into one post. 

This is how I found Sophie a few days ago. She was completely under her sheet having a party. Since that morning I have caught her trying to recreate the experience. She is seriously a hot mess. Good thing she is cute! 

Daylight Savings Time has been exhausting this week. Gone are the days of "an extra hour of sleep". It was more like, "all ready for bed then realize it's only 5 o'clock". 
Now that Sophie is getting older Sadie really likes having her around...most of the time. This past week Sadie has been all about getting hugs from her little sister. Sophie is my hugger so she gladly passed a few out.
One of Sadie's favorite parts of her day is when her daddy reads a Bible story and they both pray. It really is a special time between the two of them. I love it too! I love it for obvious reasons but also because toddler prayers are hilarious. 
Sadie's favorite song on KLOVE is Overcomer by Mandisa. She calls it "her song" and loves to sing it. She doesn't have the exact words down to every verse but she sings what she thinks it says. It's quite entertaining. 
Sadie loves, loves, LOVES going to Hobby Lobby with me. I love taking her but I only do so when I know we have time. This girl would spend hours in there looking at everything. With all the Christmas decorations out she acts as if it's a magical land. I love seeing her excitement when she finds something wonderful.

Both girls love looking out the glass door and waving at cars. Sadie often says she is going to go look for Jules and Big Dog. It's usually a sweet little time between sisters until one of them tries to close the other one in the door or pushes the other out of the way. At that point it's not so sweet and I have to put an end to the fun. 

I know those were totally random so you're welcome! :)

Happy Halloween

Last week was a time of dressing up! I know some people have issues with Halloween and that's fine. Around here we just like to dress up and eat candy with friends. 
The first dress up day was for dance! This year I debated but in the end decided not to do special costumes. Sadie has so many princess dresses I just let her pick which one to wear. For dance she picked Cinderella. 
She was very excited to dress up for dance. She would wear princess dresses all day, every day, if I'd let her. 

The next dress up occasion was for the fall festival at school. She decided to go as Rapunzel. 

From Tuesday to Friday some sickness showed up at our house so I wasn't sure she would get to dress up again. It was a game time decision but I decided to let her. She chose a Snow White dress for Halloween. I decided to put Sophie in Sadie's old clown costume. That costume will always be my favorite! 

We started the fun by Trick or Treating at Jules' house. Big Dog was still at work so he missed it. 
After that we left and headed for Trunk or Treat at church. It was so cold that we didn't stay long. 
Sadie was so excited about all the candy she received. Sadly though most of it has some kind of connection with peanuts so this is all she was able to eat.

She wasn't upset though at all! My mom filled her bag with all kinds of safe things for her. She didn't even miss a thing. 

Thankful for a fun week! Sadie is already talking about next year.
