Party at Simmons

Thanks to the Simmons for hosting another fab kids' party!  Tons of food, a beautiful home-made cake, a clown and a live band.


The girls had a chance to watch horse jumping, pet horses and ride ponies last weekend.  There was also swimming and playing with 5 dogs.  Busy and fun day!

Hanging around, blankies, boogers and homework

Below are recent photos and videos of the girls out and about and just hanging around. I love these because they capture our regular, daily life and will help to preserve the memory of our life and of them at this age.

Also, I have a lot of videos of Ashley because sometimes she's the only one who lets me (or doesn't realize when I) take videos. She's quickly catching on (sometimes she'll say "no picture") so I'm filming as much as I can while I can.

Video 662 - Ashley popping bubble wrap with her feet.  Bubble wrap is the cheapest toy ever.

Video 663 - Ashley and Lauren jumping backwards off my headboard.

Video 664 - Ashley times herself out in the hall.

Video 665 - Ashley complaining.  She shakes her legs and has a little whiny voice now.

Video 667 - Ashley eating an apple and copying Natalie.

Video 668 - Lauren and Ashley eating whole apples.

Not sure where Lauren learned to pose.

Birthday Party and Hamster Elsa

Today we were at a friend's birthday party where the girls got to draw and paint and, best of all, it was minion themed!  Then we went to Lisa's to visit their new pet hamster, Elsa.  The girls loved holding the hamster and watching her in her cage.  The night ended with some girl-bonding over shopping, dancing and noodles at IFC.
