Sweetie and Momma

The girls have started playing a new game, one of the girls is momma and the other is sweetie. The first day I heard them playing, Gracie was momma and Lizzie was sweetie. I overheard, "Sweetie, you in time out", "that not nice", "you sit here" and Lizzie dutifully did what momma said. When I try to call them by their names, they say "no, I'm momma" or "no, I'm sweetie". One day they told me I was the pretend momma. They really like this game and it's so fun to watch. Their imaginations are just getting bigger and better!

Santa Claus 2011

Tonight, we took the girls to see Santa. The girls are still not so sure about Santa. Lizzie likes him from a distance and Gracie is still shy around him. Anyway, these were the best pictures we could get.

Lizzie had to hold my hand

This was as close as Gracie would get

She finally looked at him.

Talking a bit with him

Scenes From A Mall

The girls and I headed to the mall today. It was rainy day so it was a good place to play. We first went to Gymboree or the store with a TV as the girls call it. We then headed downstairs to play and look at Santa. Gracie wants no part of Santa. She hides and won't look at him. Lizzie will wave but not get too close. We then headed to eat lunch.
Looking at the water. They discovered the coins thrown in.
After making a wish and throwing a coin in

Eating with chopsticks. Gracie just stabs the food.
Lizzie uses both the chopsticks and fork
The girls did pretty well walking with me. I did have to put them back on track a few times. Grace did spill her water. Every stinking time we go to the mall, Grace drops her drink on the ground and this time was no exception.

The Christmas Program

Today the girls had their Christmas program at school. They had a great time and looked really cute with all the other kids. They had a reception after with cookies and then they finished off their day. The only bummer was that Wes was on a plane on his way home so he missed it.
Caught this quick pic of Gracie walking down the aisle

Lizzie coming down the aisle

This is the girls class, its hard to get 10 kids to look the right way

The girls and I

My little angels
Tonight, the girls stood on their "stage" (the fireplace hearth) to dance and sing for Wes. I guess they didn't want him to be left out. Sometimes, the home performances are the best.

Christmas Cookie Play Date

Today, the girls and I went to a Christmas play date for our twin group. It was a lot of fun! It was at our friends the Coddington's.   
Some of the kids making cookies

Sweet Riley and Reese. We love them!

I love Gracie's expression even though Lizzie isn't looking

Lizzie and Gracie having a blast
