WEEKEND WRAP-UP

Happy Monday, friends! This weekend was a great one!
Today our kids are out of school and Mark is off work so we are enjoying one more day at home. I’m not sad about it!

On Friday, Mark and I realized we had nothing on our calendar so we took advantage and had a date night! Dinner AND a movie! That hasn’t happened in a long time!

Date nights make me happy!

Saturday morning was a gloriously slow morning!
Coffee, bible study, and a little reading on my Kindle.

Mark ran a few errands while Carson and Cutter played and Conner went to basketball practice.

I also did a little work in my office and enjoyed these gorgeous roses from my Valentine this week.


Saturday was beautiful weather! Mark and the boys spent the afternoon washing and cleaning our cars and practicing some baseball. Mark and I also got in a short run. It felt so good to be outside in the sunshine! Especially before the wintry mix and freezing temps coming today!

Around 4:00pm, Conner came home and got cleaned up for….

Winter Formal!

We met up with him and a group of his friends to get some pictures before the dance. That’s Conner second from the top!

His sweet date, Myka, looked beautiful!

We left from taking pictures and headed to church.

Cutter has been working on his RA Racer car for the past several weeks on Wednesday nights during RAs (Royal Ambassadors). On Saturday, we needed to register his car before the races on Sunday.

He was so excited about how his car turned out!
*Note - a long time friend of mine, Cristi, is the Children’s Minister and she is the one who MCs the RA Racing event. Cutter thought it would be hysterical to name his car after her and make her announce her own name! Ha! He tried so hard to keep it a secret from her for weeks!

We registered his car, did a quick test run, and he was ready for Sunday!


We grabbed a quick lunch after church Sunday morning and headed back to the church gym to watch the RA Races!

They race 1st grade - 5th grade.
Between the races, Cristi would interact with the kids and ask them different questions.
One of the questions she asked was “Does anyone know what perseverance means?” Cutter raised his hand and answered correctly. Perseverance just happens to be his “word” for 2019! :)

Cutter’s car wasn’t the fastest this year but he did win for “Most Creative Best Design”.

Cutter with the actual Cristi Stanton!
He pulled off his surprise and Cutter was one EXCITED kiddo!

We have a pretty low key day today just catching up on things around the house. However, tonight I have a fundraising event for work to attend and then the five of us will head to a team dinner for Conner and his teammates before Tuesday night’s playoff basketball game. It’s gonna be a fun week!
