Weekend Re-Cap…Random Edition

So I know that I am a day late on the weekend re-cap however I do have a good reason. On Friday afternoon, my mom called me and said that she received a call after her mammogram appointment to come in and have further imaging done. Needless to say we contacted the imaging department and made the first possible appointment which happened to be yesterday early morning. I dropped the kids off at school, drove 30 minutes to pick up my sweet mama and dad and another 30 to her appointment. We checked in, put on her robe and waited for them to call her. Now my mom is an emotional woman just as I am, but I think being faced with what may be cancer took over and all I could see was her strength and faith. Although I didn’t want to, we did contemplate what the next step would be if it indeed was cancer. We both agreed that it was not a death sentence and if this is something that was put upon her that between God and the doctors we would fight this thing. Finally the radiologist came and took her to get more imaging. Then again we waited, and waited. I think waiting is the worst part. Your mind gets away from you. You start thinking things that you know you shouldn’t be. You start questioning things that you know God already has covered and in the end you are upset with yourself because you should know better (or that’s how I am anyways). Finally they came back out and told us “they have no concerns”. I thought her and I were both going to leap out of our chairs and hug this poor radiologist. They said that although there is some sort of tissue they do not believe its a concern but she will have a mammogram in 6 months rather than a year. Thank you Lord.  So, that was my Monday morning and what a great morning it was!

Unto the weekend re-cap!

This is the first year that our whole family is into winter sports. Braden and I do skiing. David and Lanna have taken up snowboarding. At our school they offer a skiing/snowboarding club for 6 weeks on Friday nights for 4th and 5th grade. It has been amazing how much Lanna has learned! Since she is there every Friday, we have been joining her. On this past Friday her 5th grade had a ski/snowboard field trip and then right after her club started. All in all that child was out for 9 hours on the hill. She was sore the next day! David wasnt feeling well, so after I picked up Braden from school he wanted to go out there since he had one of his friends out on the slopes as well.

My two cuties! I am so happy these two are as close as they are!

When we first got there to meet Lanna she was in skis. She and her friend decided to see how it would feel to switch. She liked her snowboard better!

David and I had made plans a while back to go Go Kart racing with my sister in laws. So after all the snow fun I raced home to pick up my hubby and we were off to the races. Let me tell you what I learned: I absolutely stink at going fast. Pretty sure a snail could have passed me up. We raced twice and I was last both times. My goal was to get out of there alive. Not sure this is “my” thing but it was definitely a blast…once I wasn’t moving anymore hehe.

I am such a shortie next to my gorgeous model sisters!

 On Saturday, I don’t know how but I convinced my hubby to venture out to Home Goods on a weekend morning. Not sure what came over him but I wasn’t going to question it. When we did our fireplace in the living room we needed to buy a small cabinet of sorts to put our cable box and a few other components. Well it’s been 5 months and I was tired of seeing it all on the floor. So the goal was to find something for that space. Originally I came home with this one…

I thought It matched our mantle/beam perfect.

Well it matched too perfect and didn’t look right to me.

Also we decided we needed two so it balanced the fireplace.

So we finally loaded this one back up and went hunting for a different one.

He may not say it but David loves to haul all my stuff in and out until my mind is set haha

Anyways… we walked away with these two beauties…

But of course I am not sure about them and that is why they still have tags on them and the components still on the floor.

I cant decide if they look like a good pop of color or if they look completely out of place. Any input is greatly appreciated!

Got this lamp because the recessed lighting is a bit bright in our living room. Plus I couldn’t resist the iron and bulap mix!

And scored this little thing for all my kids coloring necessities!

.That afternoon Braden and David went to go work on their snowmobile machines while Lanna and I spent time with this sweet little miss.

I mean isn’t she the most precious angel!?! We had the absolute best time spoiling this girl

Sunday was…

And Monday got here faster than expected as always!

Lanna has been in dance since she was 3. However this year is her first year doing “competition” dance and let me tell you that it is definitely different. She absolutely loves it and it gives me such joy to watch her do what she does. Now gluing 1000 gems on costumes doesn’t bring me as much joy but hey it’s a small price to pay. Because they have to wear special makeup, her teacher Mrs. Jenny asked if Lanna wanted to be the model for the makeup. Here she is getting all dolled up, fake eyelashes and all.

I didn’t get an end picture but she looked so grown up, I would be lying if I said it didn’t make me a bit sad.

Hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!!!

Love XoXo, Julia
