NOPE not Boring

Because we wouldn't want life to get boring

My girl decided to go and fracture one of the growth plates in her ankle.  At least that is what they think it is.   Another xray next week. 

 Regardless we got one of these fancy boots.  

and plan on doing a lot of this .

This is the real deal.   I am truly honored to be the mamma that gets to take my girl to the doctors even if it does take most of my day.  The day I was really gonna hit the books for a big ol test (more on that later). 

Beyond blessed that this pretty little Chinese girl calls me mommy.  Still AMAZES me!  God is GOOD!

True Story.  This boy of mine.  My first born.

 is officially a Teen.  Thirteen to be exact.

 Not gonna lie the past year has been a bit of a challenge.  
Middles School and boy hormones.  Nough said.

The last few weeks there has been some sweet, loving, fun glimpses of my boy shinning through.

I must say I am really Lovin it!

I have a feeling this is going to be a good year.  

and I look forward to seeing just how it all plays out. 

And to celebrate my boy - he got a new bike

and something tells me he liked it.

We LOVE you Zach -  Happy 13th Birthday

PS we do use helmets this was just the initial lap around the circle.

Phone DUMP

Trip to the zoo - Just me and my girl

I believe my phone was hijacked for this one

Documenting the craziness in our house with 4 dogs (two are on loan, they are getting ready to ship to Australia to be with their family)

Another hijacking - not mentioning who could have taken this one  . . .  NAOMI

Me getting SUPER sad about my shopping buddy going to school next year.  I mean SAD!  I know it's early but . . .

Chinese New Year - a little visit to China Town

I LOVE when my big kid loves on his sister like this

bubble tea - the first few sips were yummy but then the "gummy things" got kinda nasty

Waiting for big brother to get on the school bus.  This girl is starting to sway away from anything Chinese.  That is another post for another day.

Opps more China town.  Zach reminded me that we weren't really in Hong Kong.  DUH!  I only wish we were.

One of many jump rope performances by my little man.  That is him doing the splits.

Mid air - Loved watching all the performances. 

Zach's school project -  He tells me this was just a quick assignment "not one of my best at all"  really?   Cuz I am impressed. 

A trip to the zoo with all my little ones.

Zach looks stoned but believe me he is not.

Then onto ice cream and pinball.

We picked this up in China Town it says something about "family, health and love"   
Working on getting a  frame for it.  Please don't notice the high-tech radio system we have in our 1970's house.  The silly things is we use said high-tech system everyday.
