Jumping and Building!

This sure is the biggest snowman we ever made! What a lovely day! Poor Carla slept through it all, and then some. We were long done with hot cocoa before she even thought about waking up! Now she is always looking out the window, saying "man, man!" even though Anna says that snow friend is a girl!

Wow! Anna was so brave pumping up so high! I know Carla would have loved it, but I was surprised to see the constant grin on Anna's face the ENTIRE time! The rest of the day she was saying that she wished she was still bouncing.

Pistachio's Ultrasound!

Here He (or She) is! So fun to watch her wiggle around and rub her eyes :) We can't wait to meet you in person this summer, little one! Anna and Carla also really enjoyed watching the screen on this snowy, snowy morning.

Happy, happy birthday Aunt Jenny!

Snowed in (sort of :)

Anna and Carla decided to set up shop right here by the front door. All the bedroom toys (baby bed, high chair, etc) came down, mostly by Anna, to make a "baby house". Carla was mostly playing "baby" and Anna was caring for her, getting her milk, reading her stories, etc, all while she was tucked in to the doll bed! It was very cute. Carla is quite obedient to Anna, and Anna (when playing Mommy) is surprisingly calm with Carla. Anna's new line to Mommy is "Just relax Mom, be calm, ok???? and then I'll do what you say." What?! It's very entertaining really, and actually does, believe it or not, calm me down!

More playing when Papa came home. The girls like to bring lots of toys into the kitchen to play...often Anna says because there is no room in the play room (on account of messiness)! On the bright side, Anna has really been good at cleaning her toys lately, very exciting for Mommy!

Snow Angel

Gramma M and Carla had LOTS of fun in the snow during her stay in Westlake! Now it's hard to get her from the car to the garage -- she always wants to get out into that pretty white stuff!

Anna had fun inside building castles with Gramma when we came to pick up Carla. The way Carla's face lit up with a huge grin when she saw her big sister was priceless! So special that they have each other :)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Mike planned a lovely weekend and romantic evening to celebrate! Thank you grandmas for taking the girls (Anna with Grandma J and Carla with Grandma M and Pas)!!! We went for a romantic dinner at the Akron Women's City Club and then across the snowy parking lot to the Coach House Theatre for a great show, A Witness for the Prosecution. There was cookies and champagne at intermission, about five exciting surprising twists in the last 90 seconds of the play, and a rose for each lady at the end! We also did lots of very romantic cleaning and organizing over the weekend! Thanks again grandmas!
