The rest of winter break, after all the Christmas hoopla, was fun and relaxing.
Novalie in her new shark lady outfit. It is so adorable and sharky and perfect.
Rollerblading with one of her BFF’s. They both know how to rollerblade quite well, so it was a lot of fun for them.
Novalie got money for Christmas and she wanted to spend it by adding to her Build-a-Bear collection. They were having a 2 for $35 special which I tried to talk her out of (her money though…her decisions), but she kept just saying…”this is the only time I will ever be able to get two at once.” So she went for it and got Apple Jack and Vanamia, the zebra. That zebra kills me…it is so stinkin’ cute!
Novalie had two different friends over on two different days and they played Wii Fit all day long.
This is not the greatest quality of picture, but I just absolutely adore this outfit of Novalie’s. A lot. Seriously a lot.
Playing more Wii Fit while I relaxed watching her/reading a book.
A lot of Olive snuggling and playing.
We finally saw Star Wars. I mean Kevin’s co-workers were starting to make fun of him because he hadn’t seen it yet. Novalie was against seeing it, but I gave her a great talkin’ to about all the movies her daddy has sat through that were so unbelievably painful to watch (chipmunks anyone?) and he doesn’t ask for much and we wanted to have a fun family outing and she needed to have a good attitude and think about someone other than herself, ect, ect. It was classic. She went with a smile on her face and even though she would never admit it, she liked it. And that BB-8….fell in love with that robot. It was my favorite Stars Wars movie. It made me laugh and cry which is a good movie.
How good is this painting? I mean seriously. I was blown away. It took her 4 hours (which if you know Novalie she likes to get things done and done quickly so 4 hours is a long time). It is just so good and I couldn’t be prouder to have a talented, artistic daughter. This will hang in my home…forever.
It was hard (hard is an understatement) to get up and get back on a school schedule. I hate when long breaks end. We are counting down until summer vacation.
It was a good winter break overall. We survived hard things and had some fun along the way.
