Another Rained~Out Saturday

Anna Claire and Mallory are riding bikes while singing "The Wheels on the Bike..." in their pj's...in the garage.

We've had rain for two Satruday's in a row, so we had to get a little creative. After exhausting themselves riding bicycles around and around and around, the girls and I cuddled up in bed and all three of us took a nap. I can't remember the last time I got to take a nap on a rainy Saturday afternoon; it was too short but I loved every minute of it! After being cooped up all day, we got out the house for a little while and went to Wasabi for dinner to celebrate Aunt Michelle's birthday! YUM!!

Happy Birthday, 'chelle 'chelle!

Happy Valentine's Day...a little late

Anna Claire and Walter were under the weather last week...and then there was the weather ~ rain, rain, and more rain, so we got a little behind on our Valentine's Day festivities. Things didn't get pulled together 100%, but we made do. We did a little decorating around the house, finally got Valentine's for their classmates finished {commercialism one out this year ~ the girls wanted Merida Valentines for the girls and Transformers for the boys}, made cookies Sunday, and I finished the girls' teacher~gifts Monday night. Here's a little peek at our week...

Triple chocolate cookies with no eggs...safe to lick the beaters, but I should have know they wouldn't be the best cookies I've ever eaten. Mallory does not discriminate, though. BTW, those aren't the cookies we made on her plate; they're Ritz with hotella {that's Mallory and Anna Claire's name for nutella. Before you ask, I have no idea}.
 Love the Target $1 section for the cutest Valentine's surprises...and new Crocs {NOT from the Target $1 section}.
 Ginormous {yes, they both use this "word"} ink pens were their favorite!

 We went to a unicorn themed birthday party Saturday where everyone got handmade unicorn horns {wheels turning}. The party coincided with the new My Little Pony episode where Twilight becomes a princess ~ an alicorn which if you must know is a cross between a unicorn and a pegasus. So, Anna Claire donned her Fluttershy Halloween costume, Cinderella tiara, and new unicorn horn so she could pretend to be Princess Twilight Sparkle. Her imagination never ceases to amaze me!
And I'm on year three of giving the girls' teachers the same gift...because they're easy and cute. The best part this year is the girls were able to share the knock~knock joke with their teachers...
 
Knock~knock.
Who's there?
Ah~choo!
Ah~choo who?
Ah~choose you to be my valnetine!

You know you want to laugh!
 
So, that was pretty much our week in a nutshell. I'm off to TN for work later today, but will be right back tomorrow which will hopefully make this short work week feel even shorter.
 
Happy belated Valentine's Day, everyone!

Tangled

This is not something a haircut will help {unless we chop it off and that it not happening}. Most mornings we have tears trying to untangle the matted knots. We've tried spray detanglers, and I just ordered this brush. Maybe we should try sleeping in braids?

No Sleeping in This Saturday

Anna Claire and Mallory got hair cuts early Satruday morning {last 8am hair appointment I'll ever schedule}.
 She was so excited about her curls. She kept saying over and over how beautiful her hair was.
Mallory wanted her hair kept straight. I think she just wanted to get out of the shop asap because I promised them McDonlad's for breakfast.
 All she wanted was a plain biscuit, but it made up for having to get hair cuts at the break of dawn!

My Wee Lass


It's know around these parts that the girls have a bit of Scottish blood in them...on their Daddy's side. It's no wonder then, that they are both fascinated with Merida. Anna Claire is the Queen of Dress Up, so she was thrilled to get a new Merida wig from Grandmom {Mallory has yet to put hers on, but I'm workin' on it}.

Now her hair matches that fiery attitude she has sometimes! {no, not Anna Claire! ~ I know that's what some of you are thinking!}
