February 5 - 14

Lynnie put on a good show for me one morning on the way to preschool.  At the beginning of February.  And she was in a t-shirt and skirt and perfectly comfortable at 9:30 a.m.  What happened to our winter?

Time for haircuts!  Lynnie wanted hers short again, and Ellie just got a trim.

When we got home, the girls played "hair cutter," complete with Ellie washing Lynnie's hair.

Kiera came in town for the weekend, and we got to hang out Friday night.  It was fun to meet her new roommates, and Ellie wanted to show her how well she plays the Tuka Tuka rhythm on the Twinkle song on her violin.  Kiera played the piano accompaniment and it brought tears to my eyes to see them playing together.

We "helped" Ky move into her new townhouse.  We really were just the entertainment and didn't really get a lot accomplished.  Ellie and Lynnie played in Ky's downstairs room and I tried to keep Cece happy while unpacking a box or two.

Lunch with Tobyn was the highlight of the day for Lulu!

. : silly faces : .

In an effort to eat more vegetables, I have been trying to make green smoothies every day for breakfast.  Lynnie says she likes them, and will take a drink or two before being done.  Ellie won't try them.  Cece loves them and drinks a ton.

We went to the aquarium with Lynnie's birth dad and his girlfriend and had a blast.

Lynnie and Ellie made little Valentine's treats for Albert and Kanisha, and Lynnie "wrapped" them in socks.  She thought it would be like Christmas stockings.

We spent about an hour playing on at the indoor playground.

 Ellie spent most of her time on the monkey bars and had blisters on both palms to show for it.

Cece was not a fan of this penguin, but Ellie and Lynnie loved it.

Kanisha was brave and touched the sea urchin.

Albert loved Lynnie's outfit -- a princess dress and vintage Jordans.

We had an epic toy clean-out, and brought every single toy that was upstairs into my bedroom.  We sorted and organized, and then each girl picked 10 toys and 10 stuffed animals to keep out, and I put the rest in the storage room.  All of this went in storage.  I told them we would trade out toys in a month.  I probably will put most of these toys in the playroom and put the playroom toys in storage.  Once those are in the storage room for a while, I will be able to DI most of them.  Out of sight, out of mind.  It has been amazing how much more the girls have played with their toys in the days since.  With less choices, they use what they have effectively.

What was left.

 Lynnie loves to hold Cece lately, and always wants to try it.  Sometimes it is fine with Cece, and sometimes it is not appreciated much.
