January Visit

 We met up at the Y for a workout (my first in forever) and the big girls decided they wanted to run on the treadmills instead of go to childcare. They are growing up so FAST! 

Laura and I are so sisters...and it makes me laugh to think of some of the things we do sometimes. After we got home from working out we looked at each other and knew we would be having a 'eat junk' day. She said, " I'm going to go to Bojangle's and you're going to bake brownies?" To which I replied, "yup!" without hesitation. There goes the! Love our relationship!

The kids spent the day playing inside and out and these two had a great first 'heart to heart'. Learning how to talk things out with your bff is a perfect way to learn how to resolve conflict as they grow older and have other relationships. Laura is so awesome at facilitating such things. 

They didn't have any matchy winter jammies but have wanted some for a while. I got these on clearance before Christmas but kept forgetting to give them to the girls. They were thrilled:)!

 Thanks to Brian, Laura and I were able to sneak away for a late dinner (while the kids were watching a movie) to Twisted Fork. We had yummy food and shared dessert. Love.This.Girl.

The next day we decided to go on a field trip to Marbles. The big girls are getting old for it but since they hadn't been together in YEARS they had fun finding things to do. It was the perfect day to go because it wasn't crowded at ALL which made it easy to keep track of our eight kiddos.

 we had the pirate ship to ourselves so Laura and I even went up in it

 This little red car. I've been getting pics of my kids in this car since Cailey was for nine years. Man the time has flown. We asked the girls where they would go if they could just drive off. Their answer was, "To the mall and to get something yummy to eat". Hmmm...they don't sound like their mommies AT ALL:). I know this will become a reality for them all too soon.

 After a couple hours at Marbles the troops were hungry and we had the perfect snack for them. Krispy Kreme on the way home!
