This past weekend was the AWANA games. Sarah, Ethan, Abby and Molly all competed in multiple events.
 Sparky games were first!
 Sparky crawl
 Sparky train
 Our Sparks took first! Yay!
 Then it was time for T&T games.
Our girls dominated in tug of war! Go Sarah!
 Oh and she might have just crushed in balloon volley... Gotta' love those tall genes!
 Boys' relay
 Our T&T teams both got 2nd! Yay!
The mini-Macks all did awesome! Such a fun day!!

Happy St. Patrick's Day

Happy Saint Patrick's Day from the Macks, where Patrick seems to have everything to do with Spongebob, (!?)
 and green food reigns.

Hope you all had a good day! We did!

A Bittersweet Ending

Being a Senior, this was Megan's last year to play high school basketball.
I can't believe I've been watching her play since she was in the seventh grade.
 That's my girl!

So when her team made it to the state play-offs this year, Scott and I packed up and traveled across the state to cheer her and her teammates on.
 After an exciting first game win, the girls faced a very difficult game the next day.
 Unfortunately, the girls were defeated in their next game which moved them to the 3rd/5th place game.
Megan's team got the win! 3rd place in the state!
The Seniors came forward to accept their team's trophy. What an emotional time! The girls had a great season and I'm so proud of my Meg. I'm so thankful that her ending year was a winning one, but I'm going to miss watching her play!

If Only.....

If only a picture could capture the way her curls bounce when she turns her little head....

Who Knew...

Who knew that AWANA was a contact sport?
 Contact with the floor, that is....
Poor Leah!

Valentine's Day on a Budget

With no income, we had to be creative this year!
Handmade gift bags with a handful of goodies for each.

Valentine attire
Valentine sandwiches,
and homemade special treats!
Valentine hairdos

We're hanging in there and making do. The most special memories are made this way, right? 
Happy Valentine's Day from the Macks!

was Molly's birthday.

I hope I never forget the way the sun shines through her strawberry-blonde eyelashes and hair, the way she jumps when she gets excited, the way she won't talk to strangers and then suddenly bursts into conversation. 

She is my 6 year old little beauty and I love her!
 Happy Birthday, my little strawberry!

We received some news almost 3 weeks ago.
 It wasn't happy news.

Scott was suddenly and unexpectedly laid off from work.
 It was quite the shock. Since then we have moved from the shocked stage to the "huh, what now?" stage.
Naughty, naughty girl!
It hasn't been easy,
We whale spout, do you whale spout?

but we have felt God's blessings at every turn!
 We know He will take care of us, and we are trying not to be anxious.
 Life has a funny way of continuing on despite hardships.
Getting ready to sword fight the princess.
I'm glad it does.
His dramatic death by sword :)
And I'm thankful for all our blessings, especially my happy 12 Macklets.
The princess that won
 Yep. I think we're going to be alright!
