Leap Day

Our Leap Day was just another day. I wanted to try to do something fun and different, but I never got around to it. Oh-well. I have 4 years to plan the next one. :)
GiGi did decide to do something special for me though.
She rolls over from her back to belly like a champ, but has yet to roll over the other way. Then when she is on her belly she cries until she gets rolled back over. Well, today she decided to change her dilemma. She was on her belly and sat up all by herself. I was so excited for her and she just smiled for the longest time.
I love my little baby girl!!!

My future dancer? I think so.

Sunday night we decided that we should take a little trip since the girls didn't have school Monday or Tuesday and Dan is now on a new schedule. We got online and booked us a room in Redondo Beach and Monday morning we took off.
This is actually the first vacation trip that we have taken with just our family and with us not going to visit family.

We got down there in the afternoon and checked into our room. We then went to Target because we forgot a few things. By the time we got back we didn't have time to do much and so we took a walk down the the beach and then to eat at Joe's Crab Shack. The girls had their first taste of crab legs and fell in love with it.

After dinner we went back to the hotel and attempted to go swimming, but it was an outdoor pool, it wasn't the warmest night, and Ty fell down and so we just said that we would go later. We went to our room and watched some TV and went to bed.

We got ready and headed out to go to the beach. It was a lot of fun and the girls said that they want to go to the beach all the time.

After some time at the beach we drove on down to Long Beach and went to the aquarium. I really enjoyed it and the crazies had a blast. Can you believe that Jo Jo and Annie even touched some sharks? It took a lot of coaxing, but they did it. And Jo Jo touched some Jellyfish. What brave kids I have!

When we were done with the aquarium, we walked around outside.

After a day of fun, we got in the car for the drive home. Of course we hit traffic and so it took us a lot longer to get home, but we made it!
It was a very short, but very fun getaway.
A much needed getaway.

You remember this Key Lime Pie that Dan made? Well he is on a baking kick and finds new treats that he wants to try, so pretty much every week or two we have a different treat.
He made some mini cheesecakes a couple weeks ago.

Then today he made some super yummy cream puffs. Oh I love me some cream puffs.

Excited to see what he will make for me in a week or two.

GiGi LOVES her sisters.
They can get her to laugh really hard.
I love it!

My crazies are the absolute best!!!!

Bath Time

She sits up in the bath now. And LOVES every minute of it.

I can't believe how big she is getting!

Sugar Anyone?

Here is GiGi's first taste of a sucker. Do you think she likes it?

I just wish she ate all her food as good as she did this sucker!

Here are the girls getting their valentine cards ready for school.

They were so excited to give out treats to all their friends.

I woke up early this morning to get everything ready.

The crazies were so excited when they came down for breakfast.
They were really excited for these heart shaped french toasts that I made and for the roses that Daddy bought them.

When the girls got home from school, Annie had a special valentine from her "boyfriend" Ryder.

It says "I'll be 'crush'ed if you won't be my Valentine." And there's a grape crush hooked to it. I love these kids. They are so hilarious!

Oh, and Dan bought me these.

I have such wonderful Valentines this year. I'm so happy!!!

New Annie

This morning when I was doing Annie's hair, she told me she wanted bangs. I asked her if she was serious and that they don't grow out super fast. She did and so I got out the scissors and cut.

She was really excited and told me that the reason she wanted bangs was because she wanted people to tell her and Jo Jo apart. Just within the past month or two, Jo Jo has been really wanting to be separate from Annie. She waits until Annie picks out her clothes, so that she can pick something that doesn't match. Every once in awhile they will wear the same thing, but it doesn't happen as often anymore. I think they are getting to the point where they don't like that people can't tell them apart.

This is how Ty gets her exercise and how GiGi stays happy!

Here are a few pics of today.

GiGi before I put a tiny piece of banana in her mouth.

And this is her trying to figure out what I just put in her mouth.

More randomness.
I love days like today when we are just whatever!
