Auntie Beth Left Today :(

We had a great visit with Beth and were sad to see her go. I’m so glad she was here for the girls first Ice Skating. Oh and what a blast that was, we had no intention of taking Layla on the ice at first, but they had skates that fit her, so we tried it out. She did enjoy it at times, but not as much as Maggie. Maggie did not skate on her own yet but did very well with someone holding her hands. There were no falls or tears which always makes it better. She is already wanting to go back again.

Valentine’s Day was like Christmas all over again. Beth made presents for both Justin and I with the girls. Maggie brought them into our room 1st thing in the morning. Daddy added to the day by surprising all of us with flowers, Maggie and Layla have theirs with Beth’s in their room and every night, Maggie asks if her flowers are beautiful. And Layla smells her flowers every time we change her diaper. These girls love their flowers already.

I also posted some pictures from January, Open House at the gym, and of course there is Maggie’s 1st Chicken wing. Justin had the camera and he took a ton of pictures, but I had to post all of them because it was so funny.

Disney On Ice

This weekend was a busy one!! Saturday the girls and I went to see Disney On Ice with Linda, Heidi and Andrew. It was a blast!! I would go over and over to watch their reaction, Maggie couldn’t wait to see the Princesses of course and was not disappointed. Beauty and the Beast was her favorite, Layla loves Mickey Mouse or MiMo as she calls him. Every time he came out she would say it and kept waving and pointing throughout the show.

Sunday we played at Open House at the gym and then were lucky enough to have beautiful weather here so we took advantage and had a picnic. I will say it was not my idea and thought Justin was a little crazy but the girls and Andrew enjoyed and of course the Ice Cream at the end was the big hit.

Auntie Beth comes in on Wednesday and Maggie has been counting down the days. I will post more pictures from Super Bowl (Maggie’s first Chicken Wing) and Open House tonight.
