CassLIFE // weekly recap

January is a funny month. 
It is a season of purging. organizing. cleaning. resting. staying in. cuddling. baking. and dreaming of somewhere warm :) 
This past week has hit record lows in temps and wind chills. Minnesota hit -40 or so BELOW  in wind chill. Closing schools and keeping me indoors. So the Cass fam made lots of forts, baked some sweets, and had a lot of craft time. 

I am the queen of eating sweets….like 6 cookies in a day and then juicing 2 times to balance it out. Anyone else with me here? :)

I have been in a random kick of throwing random concoctions together for meals. This is pulled chicken, cooked carrots and broccoli and feta cheese. It was actually really good ;) 

The ladies are loving their fort. Many hours planing in here. Zion has been extra dramatic lately. Doesn't want to brush her teeth, because the toothpaste is too spicy. Refuses to let me pick out her outfit or hairstyle for the day. Bed time routines taking extra long. She is loving working on her preschool books and identifying letters and numbers! Zi wants a play day everyday with friends. Zakiyah is into EVERYTHING. Every drawer/basket/cupboard. Still brushing her teeth 4-6 times a day. She loves dogs and makes the most hilarious noise (panting) for doggies. Both girls love "What does the Fox say?" for songs. They are obsessed with oatmeal and fruit snacks. Zakiyah is famous for wearing a lanyard around daily and Zion wears the same headband everyday. 

I love coloring as much as my almost 4 year old. Coloring stickers was a highlight.

Had a great wedding to attend. I did the hair for the event as well! 

My word. I love cuddling my ladies. Soooooooo peaceful and overflows my heart. They love cuddling Andy and I. Zion is famous for crawling into our bed in the early morning to kick and take over our bed. BLISS. 

Andy reading the girls the bible. They love sitting on his lap. They drank their milk, had oatmeal, held spatulas all while sitting on daddy reading about Baby Jesus. So cute.

(I am parked here) I often turn around and see this. This bond. This sisterhood. Zakiyah was napping here too. :)

Started ballet up again. I love peaking and seeing Zi dance around. 

 I can't believe it is 2014. Wow. I have been processing a lot lately on what I want life to look like for this new year. I am going to share with you tomorrow what my word is for the year. Do you have a word? If you missed my 2013 recap- it is here

Happy Friday!

  1. Your girls are precious. Glad I found your blog through Instafriday. The girls holding hands reminds me of my kids. The bond between siblings is so, so sweet isn't it. Fun to find another blogger/hairstylist too, even though I haven't worked in years. :)

    1. That is awesome Alyson! How long did you do hair for? I love it!!!!

  2. Great pics. Love the little ballerina. TOO cute!
