The Valentine's Celebration has Begun!

 The Valentines Day hoopla began here yesterday. The girls & I got down to work in the afternoon: them finishing Valentines cards (all by themselves-yeah!!) and ME making homemade pizzas for Emma's class party and baking cookies for teachers gifts and the Grandparents. (Yes that was a run on sentence, I know-but I have A LOT to say). ;) Emma's class party this morning was SO cute and a lot of fun. My Emma did REALLY well with the organized chaos! And, Sophie was thrilled to eat some pizza and watch everybody. When I asked Emma what theme she wanted on her Valentine Mail Box she informed me in no uncertain terms~LLAMAS. So, Llamas it was. She made a LOT of her box by herself. She is getting very artistic and crafty. Of course my little peanut Sophie was glaring at me as I assisted Emma with her, I promised her that we'd make one for her today. Which we did. :) With out further adue, enjoy the pictures...........


Bubble Wrap

Emma and Sophie were awake a bit later than usual last night. (They are normally in bed between 6:30~7:30 P.M...). The doorbell rang at 7:35 PM. Lo and behold my NEW BREAD MAKER was delivered! (Do I have a wonderful husband or what???!!!). Being Food Network fans the ladies were delighted with the delivery. Emma asked "Is it like the Barefoot Contessa's"?
BUT, even more exciting than the appliance was the BUBBLE WRAP.
Emma has never really been that excited about bubble wrap. AND, Sophie did not even really realize what bubble wrap is capable of.
The above statement can now be retracted.
Emma ripped the bubble wrap out of the box. And, never one to be left behind...Sophie discovered the joys of bubble wrap as well.
Oh dear, it seriously sounded like the Fourth of July in our living room!!! They squeezed it with their little fingers. They jumped on it. They crawled on it. They even rolled over it. They shreeked in delight and giggled until they lost their breath.
Greg and I were laughing really WAS funny!!!
And, when the last bubble was popped about 20 minutes later they went off to bed.


Lately Emma and Sophie have been requesting to fall asleep together. Well, let me re-phrase that...Emma insists that her beloved sister lay in her bed with her. And, Sophie reluctantly agrees as~ long as I confirm that I will put her in her own bed after they are both asleep. ;-)

I love how Sophie's foot is touching Emma.
Oh! How I adore these babies big girls!
 While they were all snuggled in...THIS is what was going on outide. UGH. This picture was taken *after* I had shoveled.
