Life Lately

2019 is off to a good start ! 

Parker moved up to a new room in preschool. He surprisingly loves it and tells everyone he is a big boy in the yellow room. 

Ainsley is back into kindergarten full swing, but before she started back she had one of her old preschool friends over for a play date. Jaxon apparently refers to Ainsley as his girlfriend:) 

We had a late Christmas celebration with Aunt Ellen bc she was sick almost the whole week of Christmas :( 

Parker has been working on his baseball and basketball skills. I know I’m biased, but the kid has some serious hand eye coordination! 

Ainsley started gymnastics and really seems to enjoy it. Her friend Piper is in class with her which helps. 

We finally got some snow and i was able to hold the kids off until 8:45 before waking up Philip to help them build a snow man and have a snowball fight. It wasn’t super cold out and the snow was perfect packing snow. 

And of course we made snow cream (twice). 

Ainsley had a birthday party at Malibu Jacks and we had a lot of fun just the two of us. She even somehow convinced me to get on a ride that almost made me puke. 

This past weekend was one of the best we have had in awhile. Months ago we got tickets to see the Harlem Globetrotters, knowing Parker would love it. And then several weeks ago we got free tickets to the UK gymnastics excite night. So we made two trips to Rupp Arena this weekend and we all had a blast. 

Friday night we went out to dinner then to watch the gymnasts. We ended up 4 rows from the floor, which was awesome considering Ainsleys school had given us free tickets! Ainsley said the uneven bars were her favorite and Parker said his favorite was the escalator. 

Then on Sunday we went back for a much different experience with the globetrotters. Ainsley was very leery of the opposing team (the bad guys) and i was even a little leery of getting water sprayed on us from one of the players. It was very entertaining and interactive and i think we all really enjoyed it. 

And in between those nights we had make your own pizza night with the Sarlls family. 

See?! A super fun weekend. Feeling very blessed and content after some good quality time this weekend. 

We’ve also had some random fun moments i don’t want to forget so I’ll add those pics too:)

Wrapping up 2018

People say the space between Christmas and New Years is the least favorite time of year, but that is definitely not the case for us. 

Ainsley and Parker had their first real sleep over together. (They slept in the same bed in Michigan but never have at their own home). It took a few trips up the steps to tell them to stop talking but they finally went to sleep. And we couldn’t be upset that they wanted to talk late into the night. Ainsley woke up first and snuck out letting Parker sleep another hour. He was distraught sissy had already left the bed when he woke up.

14 of us Wilhoite girls piled in to the movie theater to see Mary Poppins returns. The girls had so much fun and ate way too much candy. Ainsley ate hers so fast her belly hurt and she declared she was never eating that much candy again (as she walked out eating a Twizzler) .

The boys got to play too, shooting guns on the farm. Parker really loved when Daddy shot the bad guys (targets).

We had MudBowl XXVI and it was chilly, but fun was had. No injuries and not too much complaining from the old men :) 

We finished the evening going to a nice dinner and the kids spent the night with NannyPop. They did sherbet and sprite toasts just like we did with Grandma when she was alive. 

And of course we’ve had lots of extra snuggles. 

Excited for 2019 and seeing what the Lord will do in the next year!
