Jer's Ski Weekend

Jer took a guys ski trip with Dan to Lake Tahoe this past weekend. He said he had a great time- skiing and a little gambling. The temperature was wonderful- he said the first day he could have skied in short sleeves.
Victoria did her first Girl Scout Booth sale at Gattitown. They were so cute. They kept singing "Girl Scout Cookies For Sale" in good harmony. We sold a ton of boxes and I was quite impressed with Victoria's salesmanship skills. "How many boxes would you like?...That will be (looking at a prcing chart) $10.50 please....Would you like a bag for that? Have a good day!"
Braelyn spent the night on Saturday. The girls put makeup on each other, dressed up, played on the trampoline, and watched movies. A good girls night!
Bella had her first soccer game of the season. She did good! She chased the ball everywhere and helped to score a goal. I love the determination look on her face.

Valentine's Day

For Valentine's Day I got the girls each a cute purse. Victoria had seen this purse at a store and wanted it. Inside it, I put a lotion and chap stick. I gave Bella a see through Hello Kitty purse/container with sparkle lipsticks and nail appliques. They were both really excited. My camera battery died before I could get a better picture.
After I took Victoria to school, I had some time to do Bella's hair and nails for Valentine's Day. I saw a neat hairstyle on Pinterest (a website that has a bunch of visual ideas/pictures- think giant bulletin board) that I wanted to try. Can you see how the two braids sweep back and form a heart? We painted her nails pink and drew white hearts on them. I even put a sparkly pink heart nail applique on her thumbs. She loved them. I really like having girls:)

I went to Victoria's Valentine party at her school. They passed out Valentines, had treats, made a bookmark, and played games. Her classmates really enjoyed her Valentines that she passed out and thought it was neat they had a picture of their friend Victoria.
Here are their Valentines (inspired by my new favorite addiction Pinterest and my friend Chris who did something similar.) They glued a personal note on the back of them.
I took pictures of the girls in their Valentine best for cards for the Grandparents.

My favorite Valentines that we received from the girls.

Happy Valentines Day!

On Saturday, Jeremy took Victoria and Bella to the Daddy Daughter Dance. Beforehand, we played Salon Day- I did their hair and put some pink nail polish on them. To be honest, they were not in the best of moods. Lately, they haven't been getting all their good night time sleep, either from special times that we have kept them up or because they've been waking up around 3 with bad dreams or they just can't sleep... so cue the melt downs. And what doesn't go better with a good tantrum then pretty dresses on beautiful girls :) But don't worry V&B I didn't take any pictures of that. I did however get some good shots of them in front of the fireplace.
They took the chariot (aka van) to pick up Dan, Kate, and Abby. Braelyn and her little friend were just getting back from an earlier dance when Jer arrived.

 Jer told me that they had a good time at the dance which was candy themed- think giant lollipops everywhere. He said that when they first got there Bella ran out to the dance floor and wouldn't stop dancing the whole night. Victoria got to see some of her friends there too- Marlee, Bentley, and Ava. Afterward they all went out to Macaroni Grill for dinner.
