JAN | 23 through 29
MON | 23 kenzie stayed home for senior ditch day. she had plans, but they fell through so i took her to get cafe rio. madison had a bowling match at 3:00 against coronado. her scores tonight were 104, 111 and 111. kenzie had practice at green valley from 6:30 to 9:00.
TUE | 24 tonight the girls went to the boy's basketball game at silverado. they beat green valley.
WED | 25 ran into wal-mart to get a few things right after i dropped the girls off at school. then later i went up to trader joe's to get the rest of our groceries. it was 35 degrees out. pretty chilly when you're wearing sandals and no jacket. but i warmed up while i waited in line at starbucks for a toffee nut latte and chocolate hazelnut croissant (um, yum). max walked to joey's house after school while i took kenzie to her follow up dermatologist appointment. her skin is looking much better. we swung in and said hi to grandma on our way out of the building. for dinner we had pizzas made with trader joe's pizza dough and kenzie had volleyball practice at green valley.
THU | 26 madison had her last bowling match tonight. her scores were 105, 109 and 116. on the very last frame, she got a turkey (3 strikes in a row). everyone else on the team got a strike that frame too so their coach bought them all a drink on their way out. kenzie had practice at durango from 6:30 to 9:00.
i also went to my happy place today. star nursery. got a new plant and admired these cool cacti outside.
FRI | 27 i went to target for kenzie's rx, then downeast and kohls in search of something for darric and i to wear on our date. kohls had just what i was looking for. picked up capriottis on my way home. shared a large cole turkey with the girls when they got home from school. that night darric and i went to see drumline live.
SAT | 28 today, jayce was going to receive an award for a story he wrote months ago. i've had the story for months and figured i should probably read it before he got his award. so we had a read-aloud. madi and i took turns reading his book out loud for the rest of the family to enjoy. it was a good book and we weren't at all surprised to find out he got a silver award for it!! i dropped kenzie off at whole foods at 1:00. she had her second tournament in anaheim this weekend. they stayed at the same hotel as last time and she roomed with kenzi, mya and nae. they ate at macaroni grill tonight and ended up winning all three of their games on sunday. she only played half of each game because the other teams weren't that great.
max went over to beckam's house to hang out with him so the rest of us decided to go have linner at big b's bbq. (up by cane's where jason's deli used to be) it was our first time there and i think it's safe to say we all really enjoyed our food. darric got ribs, madi got a pulled pork po boy and i got pulled pork sliders. we were some of the only ones in there because it was so early. afterwards, we went to pet kingdom usa to visit the pets. madi fell in love with a monkey that the store was babysitting. they played peek-a-boo together for like 10 minutes. and when we went to leave, he ran to the end of his case to go after her. we went and picked max up and came back home. darric and i watched the big short. most of it just went over my head, but it was still interesting and sickening.
SUN | 29 today darric took us up to play in the snow. we picked up panda on our way home. around 6:30, i picked kenzie up at whole foods. she had a fun weekend.
