Little Miss Sweet Tooth

Brielle doesn't get candy much, but when she does she is in heaven. Somehow she ended up finding a bunch of flavored tootsie rolls. You can see the progression of how happy she is, to how sad when we took them away, to how happy she becomes once we gave them back. cute!!!

Biggie Beads

Brooklyn got these for Christmas and loves to do them. I have been very surprised by how much time Brynlee spends doing them as well. She doesn't do the design papers, she just creates rows and rows of patterns. She'll spend an hour creating her patterns and is always so proud of them! And of course Brielle does what she does best...makes a mess.

Swim Lessons

We don't go swimming very much, therefore I haven't put the kids in swim lessons very often. The house we are renting in California has it's own private pool, so I figured I better get them another round of lessons before our trip. It was perfect bc I could drop Brynlee and Brielle off in the daycare and watch these 2 swim. They did great!

Josh had to go to Vegas for work, so I made sure me and the kids stayed busy. One night Rachael came with us and we ate dinner and played at the park. Thank goodness Rachael was there...I couldn't keep track of all the kids in such a big park!

Classic Skating

Last minute I decided to take the kids to Classic Skating on their last day off track. I tried to find someone to come with us, but no one could make it so we hopped in the car and headed out. Unfortunately, they had about 400 jr. high students there. That made it much less fun, but eventually they left and the kids continued playing.

I preordered Frozen months ago, so we were all SO excited when it was finally released. Of course that meant MOVIE NIGHT!!! The kids loved it, and I was thrilled to finally see the last 10 minutes.
 Looks who's tall enough for the next drawer?! This is how she stayed busy during the movie:

St. Patrick's Day

The kids have been looking forward to St. Patrick's Day for a while. They have been asking every day if we can make Leprechaun traps. We finally made them and set them out. The kids understand that "our" Leprechaun doesn't come in the morning (he's too tired and never prepared). We had a pretty crazy day with Brielle's doctor appt and last minute heading out to dinner. So the kids had to wait until after we got back to FINALLY go on their treasure hunt and see what the Leprechaun left them. Here they are with their traps and on their treasure hunt:

Wikki Stix

We haven't done these in a while, but I recently got out the Wikki Stix and the kids went nuts. They weren't as sticky as the first time we did it, but they still had fun. Even the baby enjoyed them!
 Not sure what they were watching, but they are a cute bunch!
