Spring in my Favorite

The weather has been so nice here. I love Spring in Texas. This time of year reminds me of why people like to live here.

On Mondays, Maisy has been doing extra practices hosted by CSA. They are called "Monday Night Futbol". Jeff and I walk around the fields and talk while Maisy plays.


 We got out for an impromptu date night to see Afton's basketball coach play at a local winery. He was good- and so was the wine!




Afton tried out for her middle school dance team- and made it! She worked so hard to learn the choreography and prepare for the tryout. It was wonderful to see her hard work payoff. 


Her 'lil sis' at cheer gave her this shirt, it says "Follow Your Dreams".



I was invited to go as a chaperone on Maisy's field trip to the Perot Museum. I have been several times with Afton, but this was my first time with Maisy. We had a great day together.










We have been going on walks a lot- sunshine and great temperatures are the best! 


Random pics from dinner out on Friday :)



We did a little Easter Eggstravaganza at home- painting, egg hunts, and fun. 





Today was Palm Sunday, we got up early to go worship before Afton's big cheer competition. (Hence the chili pepper bow.) 




And we wrapped up the cheer season with our last competition- it was at the Gaylord in Grapevine. It has been a great year with these girls and their mommas. 


First place- a nice note to end on!

Afton's 11th Birthday (aka Birthday Weekend!!)

An 11th Birthday is too big to contain to just one day. So we gave Afton an entire weekend to celebrate it.

It started with me bringing her CFA for lunch to school.


After school on Friday we got fro-yo and relaxed outside. Then we met Grandpa and Grandma for dinner. Saturday morning was filled with sports, cheer and talent show rehearsals.


And then it was party time! Afton wanted a small group to celebrate with. The girls hung out, then we took them all to see Beauty & the Beast.



Afterwards we came home for painting and a sleepover.









The girls paintings turned out soooo good! 



Sunday night was Afton's cheer banquet at the Texas Motor Speedway. It was a fun night.













I am so excited to see what "Age 11" brings for our girl. She is so sporty, fun, smart, cool, kind, sweet, and amazing. We love our Afton!!  



UPDATE: Since her 'real birthday' was the Tuesday after all this hoopla- we celebrated more :) 

 A cheesy #11 on her breakfast Lean Pocket.


Lots of spoiling by her teacher.




And Gigi's cupcakes for dessert. 


This girl lives the life!
