Growing and Cheering

Miss Maisy had her 15 month check-up last week. She is hitting all the marks developmentally. Walking, sort of running, climbing, and talking up a storm. (mama, dada, A-ton, dogg-dogg, sheews, buh-bye, baybee etc.) Maisy also says 'tank ew' when you give her something- love a girl with manners!

Here is how she is growing: She has a 'lollipop figure' :)

Height: 31.5 inches (80th percentile)
Head: 47 cm (80th percentile)
Weight: 21.5 pounds (27th percentile)

Afton has been keeping us busy with cheerleading! She is cheering with a program called "Upwards" which is through a local church. She will be cheering for the next 9 weeks- for indoor basketball. There is a one hour practice and a one hour game each week. It is hilarious to watch these little kids.

 Afton loves cheering with the girls.

Here she is running out before the game. 

And she here she is on the right side in this pic- cheering for the basketball players as they are announced.

The "Spirit Squad" doing their 'color shout' cheer. She is one of the youngest on the squad. Such a fun, silly group of girls.  She is second from the end, on the left.

I have been doing a lot with Crafty Texas Girls (if you haven't become a follower, please do!). I am also training for the Dallas Rock 'n Roll half marathon. I haven't registered yet- because I am a bit nervous that I can actually do it. But I am up to 7 miles, so maybe when I hit 10, I'll feel confident enough :)

Jeff is working a lot and hitting the gym. He has also been mourning the end of college football. Good thing there is still the Super Bowl to look forward to.

And our Disney trip is just a few weeks away- we are counting down the days!

The 'almost snow day'

Yesterday was supposed to be a snow day- a rare occasion in north Texas. We were expecting 1-4 inches of snow!!!

(Note: If you are from the North, this entire post will seem silly to you.)

Afton was so excited, she planned to make a snow man, have a snow ball fight, and make Jeep tracks in the snow. But then, the winds changed, a few flakes fell but it was just too warm to stick.

 Jeff looked at and told Afton the bad news.
But the great thing about Afton is, she knows how to make lemonade out of lemons.  So we bundled up and went out into the cold, wet day.
 Here is the 'snow' we got.
 And happily, I finally got to wear my adorable rain boots.
The snow man and snow ball ideas didn't quite work out. But Afton could still drive her Jeep.
So drive she did. All over the neighborhood.

Later we went inside and made a fort out of blankets and dinning room chairs.

A pretty good 'almost snow day'!

Fear the Frog

Since we were just about the only TCU fans that did not travel to California for the Rose Bowl, we decided to have a little watching party here.

"Trying" to get my girls to pose for a picture.
I made purple cookies- they are soft and delicious. My grandma's recipe from BH&G 1970's cookbook.

 Random picture of Maisy kissing the ceramic dog in Jeff's office...
Me and my future frogs!
 My blondes- all smiles for momma!
A bit of party decor...
And lots of good friends and their sweet kiddos.

Rah rah TCU!

Happy New Year- Go Frogs!
