Our Week in Pictures

Last Friday night was the big kiddos’ school dance and like every year before we met the Shull family at a local pizza spot for dinner.  This is the ONLY picture I have of dinner…
And I didn’t even take it!!  Odds are Bowen said, “Ashby, say cheese!”.  And sweet Ashby did just that!

Love getting to hang with Shay and her crew!

A couple times throughout the dance, the lights come on and the fifth graders do a little square dance they’ve been working on in p.e.  Nixon is dreading the day he has to do this and Ebby Lee probably knows the number of days until it’s her turn to perform.  ha!

*Sidenote, I took a square dancing class in college AND I loved it.  

Oh my goodness!  This little group of third grade girls was looking so stinkin’ cute!  

The last volleyball game of the season with this crew.  Until Coach Erika realized there’s a post season tournament so we actually have a couple more on Saturday.  

Every single girl on this team has improved so much.  We’re signing ourselves up for another season of fun!  And we’re looking forward to it!

My parents were in town {step-dad drove home and mom stayed for the week.  We hadn’t seen them since Thanksgiving so we had a late Christmas on Saturday morning} and after volleyball we made our way over to this new area in Frisco.  It’s near the Star Center, where the Cowboys now practice.  And the highlight of the afternoon for the boys was this little turf field.  The Slaughter boys are in the chaos pictured above somewhere.

There they are!

We had a late lunch at City Works Eatery and Pour House {our food was really yummy} and then we let the kiddos burn a little more energy after as well.  If you’re local, you should check out this spot.  Lots of cool restaurants are there and it looks like shopping will be popping up soon.

Someone didn’t want to miss any of the action!  She saw Bowen take a few accidental spills so she lunged herself onto the turf on purpose.  #monkeyseemonkeydo

We spent the rest of the evening watching the Olympics!

Monday, there was no school but the loudest game of kickball ever on our street.  Until the ball got stuck in the tree…#boo

On Tuesday, my mom, Britt, and I had a MALL DAY!  It was crazy, yucky outside…pretty much rained all day long.  But we were nice, dry, and getting our shop on inside. 

It was a little short and sweet today, but I hope you enjoyed what’s been going on around here!

    The weather this week has been terrible, so a mall day on Tuesday was perfect. I certainly hope you got tacos.

    I feel like it is NEVER going to stop raining!!! And I love that area by The Star. We tried a new restaurant around there a while back and now I can't remember the name of it for the life of me. But it was good! 🙂 That Inspired Chick
