Little Wee One diggin' into a cupcake
She LOVED playing in these tubular things
Big wee one, with the help of a friend, made up into the huge tube system! She was lovin' it...as you can see :-)
This was before she lost that really "clean" coffee stirrer on the ground, and then used the orange peeler to stir. She was covered in that grey "dust". I feel clean just looking at her!
She's just being cute here. Serious coach stuff going on hereLook at that stinker stealing my drink! And I wonder why she didn't just fall asleep at home.
The best babysitter (aside from grandparents...of course!) and she is the lax manager. She's not going to be happy that I posted this pic, but I thought she needed representin'
Both girls were EXHAUSTED by the time we went home. Big wee one pulled out her sleeping back and fell asleep on her bedroom floor around 4:45ish, and has been asleep since. She'll sleep until tomorrow morning. Little wee one tried to lay down to sleep, but her baby just kept her awake the whole time. She and I caught up on some much needed alone time and read lots of books. She's really "growing" a lot lately...she now says, "bye-bye", dog (wog), frog (also wog, but is pointing to the frog, so I'm guessing she's saying frog) and she tells me that the dog says, "wuffff" (the "fffff"s with a lot of spit...very cute). We were concerned because she wasn't talking much, but a friend told me (awhile back) that the 19 month time frame is a big month for talking...and by golly, she's coming around :-) Cutie patootie.
Here are some pics to enjoy...good night! Big wee one had her second dentist appointment. The first time I forgot to bring my camera, so I was sure to get some pics this time. She did AWESOME! Like she's been doing this for years...she loved her new princess tooth brush, and the bubble gum floss (what 3 year old do you know, that likes to floss??). She got 2 thumbs up from Dr. Joe.

We had a great time celebrating Easter with our friends...big wee one loved playing with "the boys" and was trying to kiss them by the end of the day. Here are some pics from yesterday: I thought the bubble picture looked cool :-)
We had a blast playing, hunting eggs and eating WAY too much candy. If you didn't notice, I got the girl's hair cuts on Saturday, big wee one's turned out cute, but little wee one...I'm not so sure. I'm not crazy about it, but she did great sitting very still for the hair dresser.
I'm going to catch up on some work now, both girls are zonked out and I'm hoping to get a long nap out of them (YA right!)
T & Gang :-)

Today is Easter Sunday, and our house is busy with wee ones running crazy, food cooking and me posting :-) We hope all of you have a wonderful Easter and that you spend it with the ones you love. We'll be heading over to Mimi's house later to celebrate with Sam, Ste & the boys...needless to say I am so excited to see them!
Last night, I sponge rolled big wee one's hair. I used the same sponge rollers that my mom used on me 22+ years ago...and all the memories came back. I too, used to be excited about having them in my hair, only to wake up the next morning crying and embarrassed that my hair resembled a small blonde poodle! Big wee one did the same exact thing this morning (I'm chuckling just thinking about it), I took out the rollers, and started to chuckle to myself and she started to cry. HYSTERICAL! Paul woke up and came into the room because she was that upset. He thought she had a wig on...did I mention how funny this all was. I couldn't even calm her down because she looked so funny. I didn't tortue her long enough to get a picture, she made me wet her hair and comb it out...who knows when that will happen again. I was hoping we could get a mock hair rehearsal for her dance recital...oh well.
Friday night, big wee one had her mock sleepover and LOVED it! The girls played, ate pizza, watched movies, played, danced, painted toenails, ate cookies and played some more. When it was time to go home, big wee one didn't even make it out of the drive way before falling asleep. She was exhausted! It was nice to let the girls be girly and the moms to veg...thanks for having us over peanut butter cup :-)
Have a great day!

With the onset of lacrosse season, my days get longer, I'm more worn out and the girls are CRAZY! Stir crazy from being inside because it isn't quite warm enough (what am I saying, its not warm AT ALL!) to be outside and crazy from going days without seeing Daddy. Its not like they don't get to see him at all, but literally its for minutes a day. I can't wait for warm weather when we can go watch the guys practice at the field and the girls can run free!
We have, on the other hand, been spending more time with friends, which is so nice! We had poker night one night at the Wrecker's house and spent some time at another friend's last night. The kids run wild, the husbands hang in the garage and the ladies feed the kids and drink margaritas. If you know me, this is no surprise that last night I was letting my "inner" dance spirit free and did a "drop it down low" move. On the "low" we all heard a "rrrriiiippppp"...yup, my pants ripped right down the seem! I haven't laughed that hard in a LONG time! Thank goodness I decided to throw on my "momma" undies, instead of something pretty...I'm still cracking up just thinking about it!
Today, is my uncle's birthday. It has been an incredibly difficult year for him, so it makes this birthday even more special to have him around. We didn't do anything to out of the ordinary for a Sunday: gathered at the folks, ate and had cake. Big wee one helped blow out the birthday candles and she sang, she also helped Mimi make uncle's cake. That girl just loves to cook!
We're ready for spring to roll in...hear are a few pics from the past week...I lied, the server won't let me upload at this time, so I'll post pics tomorrow. I also have a really cute video clip of little wee one dancing, be on the look out :-)
