Bathtubs and Bubbles

March 20, 2012

Sometimes, when we get bored I throw the girls in the bathtub and they have a little mid-day bubble party.

I can't wait until the weather really warms up so we can spend our days poolside instead of tub-side :)


A Case of the Sickies :(

March 15, 2012

March had been pretty rough so far. We keep jumping from one illness to the next. It's those darn changes in the seasons, I tell ya! The poor little munchkins have gotten the worst of it :( Emily caught a cold one week and then it went to Kylie the next. Then back to Emily again and now Kylie is moving onto the always fun, strep throat. I guess it's just been going around, but it's never fun when your little one's get it. So, we've been taking our medicines, disinfecting everything, and doing plenty of this:

My children aren't the only ones that wake up in their princess jammies and immediately want to put of twirly skirts and listen to princess music, are they? I swear, I don't know where they get it from... 

We've been taking it super easy around here lately. So easy, in fact that I haven't pulled out my camera in a while because I feel like we do the same thing pretty much every day and  none of it is really exciting enough to take pictures of. (Luckily, though, I do have Instagram so that makes grabbing cute little moments between my girls a little easier than saying, "Hang on, let Mommy grab her camera and get a card and batteries and put a lens on...") Our days usually consist of playing dress-up, making messes, cleaning up the messes, errands, eating, naps, and then more messes and cleaning, and then hopefully dinner by the time Daddy gets home from school. It's actually pretty wonderful. (Except for the whole messes thing, when will they learn that mommy really doesn't like cleaning?) 
The girls are always trying to get into my button stash. It's funny to me how much they enjoy dumping things out of their respective containers. And it really doesn't matter what it is, just as long as there are alot of little tiny pieces to pick up later :) I decided to just go with it today, but they played by mommy's rules :) I put a blanket down for quick clean up and gave them some muffin tins to sort their colors. Kylie called her colors "families." "I'm sorting them in their families so they can be so happy together" And I tried to help Emily with hers but she pretty much preferred to just sort by the fistful.
