Hello and Happy Friday! This week has been so different for me! I’ve had lots of time spent on the mend with napping and Netflix. That being said, Travis has definitely had to wear his Super Dad cape this week! I greatly appreciate all he does for me and for our family to keep us a float while we are a (wo)man down!
The kids still had activities, I still worked from home, friends continued to bring us meals and desserts, and we are just taking one day at a time.
Today’s Friday Favorites has a Flashback twist. With Halloween around the corner, I thought I’d share the kids’ costumes through the years.
Lil Pumpkin and chubby skeleton…
Fireman and Princess…
My favorite costume combo: Batman and Robin! (Being Robin was 100% Hadley’s idea after Hayden said he wanted to be Batman)
Captain America and Elsa (from Frozen)
A ninja and a pink Power Ranger…The neighborhood was very safe that year 😉
A bee and Luke Skywalker…
Super Girl and KC Royals player Mike Moustakas…
Soccer player and 80’s party girl #omg
A Ghostbuster and a nerd 😂
Last year, our Halloween trick-or-treating was moved due to weather. So, we had a fun dinner at home on Halloween. Andrea had shared about her spooky dinner, and I recreated the fun. I hope to do this again this year.
I thought that would be a fun trip down memory lane! Now, on to some favorites…
After a string of dreary days, the sun finally came out! I went outside to tell Hadley to come in for dinner and saw one of our front yard trees showing off.
Favorite Clothing Item:
My pjs or comfy clothes on repeat.
Again, we’ve been enjoying so many wonderful foods that friends have brought us for dinner. We’ve had soups, lasagna, chicken enchiladas, and a quiche. As well as too many delicious desserts.
When I had my surgery last week, my goal was to rest up and be able to attend the kids’ district championship cross country meet on Wednesday. I’m so glad I was able to attend! The boys and girls teams have come so far, and I’m so proud of Travis for taking on the coaching responsibilities again this year. They’ve had a pretty good season considering the late start due to Covid.
Hadley finished with her best time and highest finish yet with 4th place. Then, Hayden finished again in first. They’ve grown so much as runners in the past year, and again, it’s so awesome to see teammates cheering each other on!
I caught this pic of Hayden right as the race started. He had on his new bright cleats and was chasing the daylight!
On the run…
Twinsies with their hardware.
Their cousins came to cheer them on 🙂
It was such a beautiful day, and definitely a fun race for all.
Favorite Kid Quote:
This quote goes back to last week. Hadley had her first band class via Zoom for playing flute on the Wednesday of my surgery. That evening, when I Facetimed the kids from the hospital, I asked Hadley how band went, and she told me how the teacher taught her a few notes. I said, “Hadley, I’m so proud of you!” She said, “No, mom, I’m so proud of you.” ❤️She knew I was anxious about my surgery that morning, and that I was so relieved to be on the recovery side of it.
She’s such a sweet girl…when she’s not being sassy 😉
Favorite Mom Memes:
This one popped up in my Facebook memories. Thankfully, I haven’t had to cook in over a week! 😂
Travis is the real MVP this week getting the kids where they need to go. Technically, I’m not supposed to drive yet, so it’s on him to get them to school pod and activities…as well as other errands.
It was a short blogging week for me, but here are my two other posts from the week:
Y’all, by some miracle we don’t have any real plans this weekend. No sports or other major commitments on the schedule which means I will continue to get some much needed rest.
Thanks so much for reading, and have a great weekend!
