Spring into Summer

Spring into Summer

We took the girls to “Day Out with Thomas” this spring with my parents. We rode the train, the rides, and the girls had their faces painted.  Willa is totally into trains and Thomas, so she was so excited.  When the train started moving, she was awe struck- a little unsure.  She just looked out the … Continue reading

Willa’s Big Show

Willa’s Big Show

Willa has been taking a gym class with me since early spring.  She loves going each week and looks forward to high-fives from her teacher, Mr. Dave!  She loves to swing on the bar, jump on the air mat, and even will go across the high balance beam… She loves to use the shakers and … Continue reading

Our Little Ballerina

Our Little Ballerina

Fiona started ballet in the fall and her class culminated with a recital this spring.  She practiced her little heart out (but, wouldn’t show us any of her recital moves, it was a surprise, hehe). She thoroughly enjoyed going to class each week (I did not enjoy the half hour it took us to get … Continue reading

Cat in The Hat Jr.

Cat in The Hat Jr.

Back in the spring, Willa picked up Cat in the Hat at bedtime and “read” it to me.  It shows how far she has come with her speech, and how far she has come even since then 😉 And her little voice, is just so cute!!! Funny, that this was the first book that Fi … Continue reading

Fi’s first book

Fi’s first book

After playing this fairytale game one morning, Fi told the most amazing story with the characters.  Luckily, I started recording it, so we turned it into a book.  I typed it up for her and she illustrated it!  She “dedicated” it to Willa, so Willa absolutely loves it… She says it’s about “Princess Willa!” Fi’s … Continue reading

Being the Second Born…

Being the Second Born…

… Your first hair cut is not the major production that the first born’s was…  I took Fi to the hairdresser, took nine million pics, and saved a snip of her hair (somewhere?!?!?) Then, throw in the fact that Willa has super curly hair and even my hairdresser gave me permission to cut it myself … Continue reading

Happy Birthday, Kota!

Happy Birthday, Kota!

Kota had presents, treats, and a card made by the girls. This year,  I made her pumpkin muffins.  While they were cooling, I ran upstairs to get something for one of the girls.  Kota got up on the counter and ate all but one of the muffins… Couldn’t be mad since they were for HER … Continue reading

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

We had about a couple of year hiatus from celebrating New Years- two babies tend to tire you out and your friends aren’t really up for dragging their kids out either- but this year we had our friends Nate and Anne over.  They have two children- Madigan and Kelan.  Madigan is Fiona’s age and Kelan … Continue reading
