Hannah and James (and Bert too!) were in town this week so we took the opportunity to all get the kiddos together for a playdate at the zoo!
Just look at this cutie! Does she not have the most amazing eyes? Darrell, you better watch out in about 15 years! ;)
This little stud muffin who is about to become a big brother in a few short weeks!
And these two silly monkeys.
Anna Cate's favorite animal to see:
We should have known better than to try to get a picture with all four of them:
This one was about the best we could do...
Seriously? No explanation is needed.
Then today, we had a few friends over for a little Valentine's day pizza party.
the yummy cupcakes AC helped me make this morning for dessert.
making her heart shaped pizza (that she doesn't eat).
Mmmmm...must be good!! :) Every other picture I snapped of Miss Carlysle this morning she was talking very expressively, with her hands. She is a mess and hands down the funniest toddler I have ever met.
Miss Mason looks like a little valentine herself with her pink shirt and bow!
And we are loving these things:
This time of year is so hard to find interesting things to keep AC entertained since we can't play outside. I bought a package of these at Hobby Lobby with my 40% coupon for $3.50 and we have played with them everyday for a week and haven't started to put a dent in the box yet.
They are fun AND a great learning tool. You can do all kinds of activities like patterns, addition & subtraction, grouping colors, etc. Not to mention they are quiet and clean. Two nice qualities to have in an afternoon activity while I'm trying to get dinner on the table! :)
