March Pt 2

Awesome time in Utah seeing these two get hitched.  They are so stinking adorable! Congratulations Randy and Amanda:

Pedicures the day before:
 A rare afternoon at Grammy's house.  She had notebooks and pens for them to draw:
Swimming at the hotel pool: 
 Apparently I was in a hurry to get home because not only did I get pulled over leaving Utah, I got pulled over again in Wyoming:
 Finally learning how to pump!!
 Maggie went to a pioneer themed birthday party. She got her very own pioneer bonnet and they made clothespin dolls.  She loved it:
 Hike up Chatauqua Park in Boulder:

March Pt 1

Cup of tea and a show before I pick up Caroline from preschool.  My peaceful moments.
 She didn't actually eat this.  She doesn't like strawberries.  She says she does and then won't eat them.
 Caroline is a poor sport.  She cannot stand it if anyone else wins a game.  It's exhausting.
 After school snack of cheetos sandwiched in a blueberry bagel:

When I take a trip to Sephora for makeup the girls are allowed one sample.  Maggie almost always asks for black lipstick and Caroline asks for blood red:
 A rare day where I had Maggie at home but not Caroline.  We worked out together.  It was HILARIOUS!

Tie-Dye fun: 

Goofing off with Caroline.  February is long and cold.

Watching the gymnasts before their dance classes:
 Making Valentines:
 We don't really do much for Valentines Day at home but Caroline insisted on doing something so we settled on heart shaped paper plates.  I know. Extravanat, right?
 Waiting in line to pick up Maggie from school.  She hates being without her all day!

January Pt 2

Making....something.  Every once in a great while I let them "make things" which just means make a mess, then throw it all away.   
Caroline has always had a hard time seeing Maggie go to one birthday party after another.  Her turn finally came.  And she LOVED it!  Preschool friend Laila. 
 Rainbow Loom.  I was hoping it would be something they'd get lost in (giving me a break).  Instead it was a time-suck in that they needed help every 30 seconds.
 But it did produce some cute bracelets that Maggie was very proud of:
Then we got sick.  We spent an entire week getting over colds only for a stomach bug to take over: 
 A sweet little letter from Maggie to her mom and dad:

January Pt 1

A little ice skating.  They both did very well!  But they didn't like the sun in their eyes when I stopped them for a picture:
 I took Maggie to my hairstylist and when asked what she wanted she said "bangs" which was a suprise for me.  When we got home Caroline was completely freaked out by the new style.  It took her many weeks to adjust.
 Caroline and Daddy playing a game of Headbanz:
 An after-school stop at the coffee shop for pastries and games:
 Game night:
 Caroline is selling me a couple of books (on the steps behind her).  She's writing up my receipt.
