We kicked it off Friday with homecoming at school. Now that Brooklyn is in middle school, they get to do all the big kid stuff like school sports, dances, homecoming, etc. B got selected to represent her homeroom during the halftime court. This meant dress shopping on Christmas break....eeek. We actually survived it and knocked out dress shopping for their first formal in February while we were at it. One and done shopping!
Anyways, here's a little pic overload from Friday night:
|Yes she looks almost as tall as us here but her heels are about twice as high as my heels in this picture|
|My baby and my baby sister|
|B and my dad (Poppy)|
Brooklyn asked him to escort her so she wouldn't have to choose between her dad and her step dad. I thought that was pretty sweet and mature of her.
Saturday, B ditched us for the Harlem Globetrotters with a friend and we headed to the party for the Road Race Series finishers and warriors. I've mentioned the details on the road race here, but basically it's a series of races that go from 5ks up to half marathon distances over the course of several months. It also pretty closely aligns with the training for the St Jude half marathon. If you complete 6 out of 10 or one race of each distance, you are a finisher. If you complete all 10 races, you are a road warrior (and a BAMF, seriously! Those races are every two weeks and start at 7am!). Anywho, this weekend was the big party to celebrate that, and we had a blast.

We spend the rest of Sunday evening on the couch! The Golden Globes were on so I had to hop on twitter and read the live tweets. That's my favorite time to be on twitter...during awards shows!
Hope everyone had a busy but fun weekend as well!
