NCA week!

Our first NCA Nationals is in the books. Whew! What a crazy week.
We kicked off NCA week with a team lunch at On the Border last Sunday afternoon.
Gift exchange.
Team picture with our coaches!
Sunday's practice was 'purple out'.
While the girls had practice a couple of the team moms and myself painted our NCA week team poster. Love the way it turned out!
You can really see the colors and glitter in the panorama.
Here it is on the wall.

Pajama day

Space day

These girls competed so hard at NCA. They were in 6th place out of 9 teams on Saturday and were determined to prove to the judges that they deserved a top spot. They hit a zero deduction routine both days and ended up finishing in 4th place!

It was a long, exhausting and fun weekend. We really had a blast getting to hang out with a lot of our other girls and their awesome parents. But I'm definitely looking forward to the next 3 weekends off before we head to New Orleans for competition.

Have a great week!!

Weekend recap

This week is NCA week at Express and tumbling evaluations are right around the corner, so Abi and I have been living at the gym.
We started our Saturday with a 6:30am practice.

Then we came home and hosted a sprinkle for one of my dearest friends Cassidy and sweet baby boy Sterling.


We spent all day Sunday doing cheer stuff (I'll save that for my NCA week post coming at the end of the week.)
And here we are on Tuesday still enjoying the 'weekend'. It's cold and icy, the hubs is off work again so we're spending lots of time snuggling, playing board games and watching movies together.

Happy new year!

Wow, I still can't believe that it's 2015. We rang in the new year at home with the kids.
We started the day off at The Donut Kitchen.

These balloons each had a piece of paper inside with an activity for us to do each hour.

6:00-Eat finger food.
7:00-Decorate cookies.


8:00-Color pictures.
9:00-Play Just Dance.

11:00-Watch the ball drop in NYC, toast and confetti!

It was a fun night and a fun year. I'm looking forward to all that 2015 hold including; 2 weddings, New Orleans, Disney, Cardinals baseball and family time!

Yearly review

It's that time again. Another year has come and gone. I feel like I blinked and it was over.
(Wait, have I said that before?)
 We rang in the new year with some of our best friends. These girls are such a blessing in my life!

We bought a house and moved.

Abi started cheering for an all-star prep team at Express.

I had my appendix removed.

We spent Easter in San Antonio and went to Sea World.

Abi had her last competition on her Impact team and then started her all star team.

I went to another fabulous favorite things party with these wonderful ladies!

Hayden took swim lessons with her bestie, Taylor.

Abi went to church camp.

I hosted VBS in my backyard.

I spent the weekend with my girlfriends at the Gaylord.

We went to St. Louis to see our Cards play.

Then Hayden got a horrible case of hives.

We ate at Sauce on the very last night it was ever open. There is still a big whole in my heart!

Hayden went to Frozen camp at Express.

We celebrated Abi's 13th bday with some of her closest friends at Great Wolf Lodge.

I co-hosted a shower for my friend Brooke and baby Libby.

I celebrated my birthday at Mellow Mushroom.

And then again at Kona! (Before suffering a bout of food poisoning/car sickness.)

Hayden had a donut party for her 3rd birthday.

Abi had her 1st competition with her all-star team.

And of course Halloween!!

We drove to Illinois to do Christmagivus with my in-laws.

Abi and I went to Tulsa for a cheer competition where her team won a bid to Summit!!

We did so much Christmas stuff I can't even blog it all!

Wow, what an incredible year. I think each one is better than the last. Looking forward to 2015 and all the fun and excitement it holds!

Take a look back to previous years:

Happy New Year!!
