Friday 5: Celebrating Simplicity

Here's to 5 simple happenings from the week worth celebrating.

Here's to starting out the week with Vance making breakfast for us all by himself.

Here's to catching snowflakes on your tongue. 
(While I'm done with winter, the kids are excited for even the smallest bit of snow.)

Here's to $4.99 tulips from Trader Joe's.
(While it's still winter outside, it makes me happy to have some spring inside.)

Here's to kids wanting to make dinner.
(He's leaving no cookbook unturned and is making dinner for us on Saturday. I could get used to this!) 

Here's to learning not to put my foot in my mouth. 
(And here's to kids who never give up hope.)
Months and months ago, Vance wanted to enter a contest that was advertised in his Sports Illustrated Kids magazine. I helped him enter online and every day for weeks after that, Vance would come home from school asking if I'd heard from the contest people yet. I told him that thousands and thousands of kids probably entered and we'd most likely never hear who won because that's how these contests work. Fast forward to last month when I received an email that Vance had won. A little paperwork after that (contracts, signatures, copy of my drivers license - it takes a lot to win a free prize) and yesterday a Nerf Demolisher showed up at our door making Vance the happiest boy ever. "Mom, I won! I can't believe I won!" 

What are you raising a glass to?

  1. Way to go Vance! Looks like a fun prize, but then any nerf gun is great right? Jack isn't afraid to whip up himself some eggs either for breakfast...guess it runs in the family ;) We will raising our glass to 70 degree weather and sunshine this weekend. Cheers!

  2. Yay for Vance's determination! BTW, I think Vaughn should mix it up a little and try adding color to her wardrobe. (She said with her hilarious dry wit.)

    1. She's like a walking rainbow! :)
