7QT: A Teen, My Team, and Ice Cream

It's Friday!  Linking up with Kelly and Crew like I do.


I'm not sure how it happened but we have another teenager in the house!  Andrew turned 13 yesterday and received the treasured teenager gift, a new phone!  

With his phone comes more responsibility (he can now start to babysit for short stints) and lots of rules for phone usage!  He was very excited, called his grandmother right away, then started texting people to let them know he was part of the group now :) Somebody asked him for his phone number, and he was like oh wait...what is my phone number Mom?  So cute.

We had already celebrated over the weekend for his and Eamon's joint birthdays...

11 + 13 = 24

 ...but went out to Friendly's on his actual birthday because we were running around after school with a doctor's appointment for Declan and basketball signups for Maggie, Eamon & Andrew.  Besides, the kids meals were half off (the teenager got an adult meal!) and Andrew had a free sundae coupon.  He couldn't even finish it:

Mint Cookie Sundae, takes after his father.

Looking through his basketball and football cards, a gift from a friend.

We all love when the kids are old enough to eat at a separate table :)

We got him a canvas print of the Dude Perfect photo too!

Gammy and Grandpa got him some new football gloves because he's the quarterback of his flag football team.  

Nana and Gramps gave them the gift they had been hoping for...

A Dude Perfect Nerf bow and arrow!  It's huge and awesome.  


Next up in the birthday circuit is Phil on Wednesday, and then I get a little break until December.  Fun fact, all of my kids are born in different months, so you're pretty much guaranteed a party every month at Casa Martin :)  


The Patriots finally won a game.  It was ugly but I'll take it.  Also, important to note, it looked like a game of Angels vs. Devils with the Color Rush:

I'll let you decide who was Angelic and who was demonic ;)


JP is going to his first Homecoming dance tonight.  That is all.


Season 3 of  Schitts Creek is now on Netflix.  I am sooooo excited, I loved the first two seasons of this show.  I told Phil last night that I think I googled "When is Schitts Creek Season 3 coming to Netflix?" more than I've ever googled anything.


Since the Whole30 ended, I've eaten ice cream every night.  Not like, a bite from the quart in the freezer either.  Like go out and buy a sundae at an ice cream shop!  It's gotta stop.  Seriously today I am trying to eat lower carb with more emphasis on fruits and veggies.  It's amazing how fast one can get off track and how easy it is to gain weight.  Plus I haven't ran since Monday so I feel all trapped in my body.  Ugh.


It's the start of a long weekend baby!  We've got 2 football games, 3 soccer practices, 3 soccer games, a grooming for the dog, a cardiologist appointment for Declan, a dance (JP), a date (us), and an SAT exam to proctor (Phil).  But other than that, we're free as can be ;)  Hope you all have a wonderful, relaxing weekend everyone!
