Movie Night

The girls love it when I pull out our air mattress just for fun.  So I decided I would surprise them and set it up while they were in the bathtub last night.
Happy Feet 2 + An Air Mattress + Movie Snacks = Sunday Afternoon Fun! 
Josh and I were able to enjoy our dinner while the girls relaxed.  This lasted about 30 minutes until they both ran out of snacks and completely lost interest in the movie. After that they decided it would be fun to jump from the couch to the bed and back - over and over and OVER again.  I guess this is why I usually only pull out the air mattress when one of them isn't feeling well... :)  

Fancy Friday Night Dinner

We took the girls out for a fancy dinner at Outback Friday night.  Okay, so it's not so fancy to most people, but when your dining out usually revolves around "kids eat free" nights, Outback starts to seem pretty schnazzy!  The girls were on their best behavior...I'm sure this had nothing to do with the fact that they were both glued to our phones - Charlotte with her Mickey Mouse and Lily with her old Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner episodes.  Thank you iPhones for our enjoyable night out!

Shamrock Breakfast

I had a few days off this week because I've had several leg vein treatments that require me to "rest and elevate my legs for 2 weeks" - right...that's just not going to happen!  But I did get a full 48 hours off and Josh really stepped up to the plate with the girls.  He would work a few hours in the morning and then spend the rest of the day bouncing between preschool, dance and soccer.  What a guy!   He also ended up having to take the girls to their Shamrock Breakfast Wednesday morning.  I sent him with the camera hoping for lots of cute sister pics...I got 2!  I'm still very thankful for all his hard work this week and I'm feeling fine now and I'm happy to resume my motherly duties.  Truth is, sitting on the couch all day watching tv is not all it's cracked up to be.  I would much rather be running from preschool to practice, grocery shopping, doing laundry, fixing dinner, working out, cleaning up the kitchen...oh wait, I think my legs hurt again...back to the couch :)

Charlotte at the Zoo

I took this cute little girl to the Zoo today all by herself while big-sis was at school.  I let her lead the way and we did everything she wanted to do right when she wanted to do it!

Girls' Weekend!

Lily and I went on a very special trip to Atlanta with our friends, Stacey and Savannah.  We did lots of shopping, had super fun slumber parties each night at the hotel complete with chocolate covered strawberries and sparkling cider, spent most of Saturday at The American Girl Cafe' and ended our weekend at the nail salon.  I'm not sure who had more fun, the girls or the mommies!
