Spring, Is That You??

For the last couple of weeks the weather here has really started warming up. I am hoping that this weather is the start of Spring, and it isn't just a little tease of what we can expect in a few months. Haha. It isn't even March yet, so there is still a chance that the temperatures will drop again. Let's all cross our fingers that the temperatures will stay warm!

Since it has been so nice out, the kids and I have spent a lot of time outside. Earlier today I took the kids to the playground in our complex to play. It's not as good as the playground at the park, and there are no swings, but the kids still enjoy it. Plus, it is a lot less crowded than a park, sometimes we are the only ones there. This time Aiden found a soccer ball that had been left there by someone else. I'm thinking it may have been left there on purpose tough, because the ball was pretty flat and may have had a hole in it. Aiden and Jenny still had fun playing with it though!

We are really enjoying this warmer weather!

Valentines Day 2011

We had a great Valentines Day! Instead of having one Valentine, I get to have 3! Jaime, Jenny, and Aiden all either asked me to be their Valentine, or agreed to be mine. Haha. We started the day off early before Jenny went to school by giving the kids their Valentine gifts from Jaime and I.

They each got a balloon, a stuffed animal, a box of chocolates, and a Valentine shirt. I forgot to get a picture of Jenny in her Valentine shirt, I didn't have time to get it before she left for school. Her shirt was cute though, and she got to wear her "high heels" to school.

Aiden's stuffed giraffe and box of chocolates.

Jennys stuffed love bug and box of chocolates.

You can kind of see Jenny's Valentine shirt in this picture.

Aiden's Valentine shirt said, "Eligable Bachelor"

Our Valentine note for Daddy. Jenny drew the stuff in blue, and Aiden did the stuff in orange.

That night, after the kids went to bed, Jaime cooked me dinner and we gave each other our gifts. He cooked chicken linguine alfredo. Yum! We hope you had a great Valentines Day!!

I didn't think it was possible for anyone to love soccer more than Jaime. Until I saw this....

By the way, doesn't Jenny look like such a big girl in this picture? She is growing up too fast!

Apparently Aiden and Jenny have their father's love for soccer! Who knows, maybe one day they will be World Cup Champions or Olympic Gold Medalists? :-)

Valentine Cards

This year Jenny and I worked on her Valentine cards for her class at school. She picked out the cards that had puppies and kittens on them. We also bought some little Snickers candy bars to tape to the cards for her friends at school. She had to make 19 cards, and also had to write all her friends' names on the cards by herself. She took her job very seriously, and the cards turned out great!

Me & My Guy Dance

Here are a few pictures from the Me & My Guy dance that Jaime and Jenny went to. These pictures are of them before they left the house. Jaime didn't take the camera with him to the dance, so I don't have any pictures of the actual dance. They had a great time though, and it was good for them to spend some time together. After Jenny got ready, Aiden told her she looked like a princess.

Before they left, I asked them if they were excited about going to the dance. They both said they were excited, and nervous too. Jenny's response was, "I'm a little excited and a lot nervous". Haha! Not only do they look alike, they also act alike too. Jenny is like Jaime's mini me.  :)

Dress Shopping

This Saturday is the annual Me & My Guy Dance in Girl Scouts. It is something that they have done for years and years, because when I was in the Girl Scouts (which was at least 15 years ago), they were doing the dance then, too. Although at that time, it was the Father & Daughter Dance, but since times have changed, it is now known as The Me & My Guy Dance.

Jenny is very excited about the dance, and Jaime is too. I think it will be a great opportunity for the two of them to spend some time together! Plus, it will be a lot of fun for Jenny and Jaime, too.

Yesterday, Jaime, Aiden, Jenny, and I all went shopping for a dress for her to wear for the dance. We picked out a few different ones, and then headed to the dressing rooms. Jenny chose her the ones she liked best, and I chose a few that I liked best. Once we got to the dressing rooms, and looked at the price tags on a few of them, we put several of them back without even trying them on. Haha. They were pretty, but also were over $100, and I don't see the point in spending so much for a dress she'll wear once. Lucky for us, a few that we picked were on clearance and were $100 dresses on sale for $20!

This was the first dress Jenny tried on, and it was also her favorite choice (before trying on any of the others). The picture has really bad quality since I took it with my phone, but the dress is actually a nice shade of purple with black polka-dots.

This is the second dress she tried on, which was also my favorite. It is a brighter teal color than this picture shows, and would look better if she weren't leaning against the wall in this picture. :)

We had a pretty hard time finding a dress that would be warm. We shopped at Macy's and they already had a lot of Spring dresses out, and there wasn't a lot of Winter stuff left. Plus, most of the Winter dresses looked too much like Christmas dresses. We bought her a sweater to go over the dress we ended up buying. She and I are going shoe shopping tomorrow, and the dance is Saturday night.

You'll have to check back here for the Me & My Guy Dance post to see which dress she wears! I hope you're all having a great week!
