This trip we got FREE tickets!! Thanks to my dear cousin Alanna who works for Disney, plus "Give a Day, Get a Day" promo (we made blankets for the homeless), we simply had to pay for food, gas, hotel, and Disney treats!
Most of you know, i'm kind of a Disney parks fan. I like the movies, the stuff, but it's the parks that really get me. Luckily I can live vicariously through my 2 and 4 year old girls and pretend it's all for them.

I can't stand January - it's seriously the most boring (no holidays), coldest, ugliest month in Georgia where I've been stuck inside my house trying to find ways to entertain my children without having to spend money or bundle them up to go outside.
On a happier note, FEBRUARY is so much better. We had a fun Valentine's Playschool day where Brooklyn got to dress up like Cupid and shoot a bow and arrow. She said this was the most awesome playschool day ever. We had 3.5 inches of snow one weekend and made a Brooklyn-sized snowman. The day after it snowed we all went to Ringling Bros. circus for free, but spent a ridonkulous $12 on cotton candy. John leaves for his golf trip this week, which he can't stop dreaming/talking/thinking about. Brooklyn and her BFF Abby went to the Disney Store together for a special Perfect Princess party where they dressed up like their fav. princess and learned all about manners! It was so cute and Lexi was in heaven looking at all of the Toy Story toys (her favorite movie right now). Oh, and John took me to a fabulous Thai restaurant and to the mall afterward the Monday after V-day since we got back late from the circus. Here's some pictures of our Fabulous February!

Which girl is which?

So one of these I took when Brooklyn was 16months old, the other was taken when Lexi was about 15 months old. I never thought they looked alike before, but now I see the similarities! Fun!


Brooklyn LOVE LOVES LOVES Gymnastics!! She's always been very athletic - she doesn't walk to where she wants to go - she jumps and hops. I've wanted this for her for a long time and now we've been blessed to have the opportunity!
Here's some pictures of the girls!

1st Trip to the Dentist

Wow - blogging has really gone back-burner. At least let me post these really OLDpictures about Brooklyn's first dentist experience. It was so cute! She was really excited and very mature. Normally they don't do X-rays or flouride on 1st timers b/c they are too scared or fidgety. Not Brooklyn! She got mad that they mentioned holding off and so her very sweet hygienist Brandy went ahead and did the whole Sha-Bang. With all of the candy, juice, and general lack of brushing I was sure Brooklyn would have at least one cavity. I think I even convinced her she had one before we went - bad mom! She has...NO cavities! I think I was more relieved than she was. She had such a good time she wanted to come back the next day.

P.S. Brooklyn ALWAYS picks out her own outfits - I thought this one was...well, creative since she pulled the yellow from Sleeping Beauty's hair to match the skirt and wore her pink jellies to match the stripes in the shirt. She needs to give me some tips!
