Compilation of our Best Moments {mobile monday}

I've been unbelievably busy so it's been awhile since I've been able to share our happenings with you.  As many of you know, we are smack dab in the middle of a big move.  I have a lot to share from the last two months, but no time to sit down and sort through it all.  I'll attempt a 'catch up' this week before my computer is packed away - if possible.  (Don't hold your breath, haha!)

So here it is - another mobile phone post - a compilation of our fondest moments of the last few weeks.  Image #1 - Ah-MAZ-ing Arizona sunrise... This is one of many incredible views we've been blessed with this winter as we drop Freckle Face off for early morning Seminary at the Stake Center.

Image #2 - I can't tell you how many times I've been stuck in my desk because she lays right behind me, trapping me.  I've also lost track of the number of times I've rolled over an ear or foot.

Image #3 - This is a typical comment I find on Monkey Boy's school fliers.  He cracks me up.  Keeping it real.

Image #4 -  This Tracker parked outside the local Walmart makes the top five on my list of sah-WEET paint jobs.  Hispanics certainly know how to liven up the ride.  I mean, dogs in sombreros and serapes... that's pretty awesome.

Images 5-7 - Buggy's final orchestra performance was incredible.  I'm so proud of her willingness to develop and share her talents with everyone.  The Beehives went to the winter concert together to show their appreciation for the girls in their group that were performing.

Image #8 - Buggy hosted an epic Ugly Sweater Party with some of her friends from school and church.  They made up plates to take around to the neighborhood ...(I spent two days making 2400+ cookies while I was stuck indoors with the house being painted).

Image #9 - Monkey Boy and I at his Court of Honor - he received his Tenderfoot and First Class.  We were pretty tired that night from all the moving prep... and weren't prepared for no glamour shots, lol.

Images 10-13 - Christmas morning selfies.

Images 14-16 - Daisy... what can I say.  She's gonna do what she wants.  She jumped up on the bed and interrupted Freckle Face and I as we were watching YouTube videos of sassy dogs.  She also took over the GB Packer bed I made for poor Copper.  She's kind of a meana sometimes.

Image #17 - Christmas morning.  Hmmm.... can you tell which two woke the other up?  They were excited.  She just wanted to sleep in.

Image #18 - I'm not sure why we took this one, except I know we were waiting for the other two to get out to the car for church.  I think it's because we were coordinating outfits.  My closet has officially been open for business.  I'm not sure I have much left that's still 'mine' now that we've got two teenage girls that fit into my sizes.

Images 19-21 - Freckle Face set out on a solo trip to surprise best friend Lauren in Montana after Christmas.  She successfully navigated three international airports on her own, which is incredible for a 14 year old.  I am grateful for all those that helped make this trip possible for her.

Images 22-24 - Grandma Brunette graciously had Bug and Monkey Boy's friends over to make fortune cookies and watch movies on New Year's Day.  The kids had a great time and even though mom and g'ma ended up doing all the work, they still talk about how cool that was.  And delicious... they were melt-in-your mouth delectable.

Alright, that's a quick recap for now.  I promise I'll get back to blogging and photographing once we are settled into our new place in Oklahoma.  Love you all!  Stay warm this winter :)
