the other day my girls and I got all dolled up and went for a fancy lunch!
our oldest was so impressed that the napkins were folded pretty and there was even white blankets on the table... (white tablecloths)
so we were very polite and enjoyed the most beautiful
Sunday lunch at a Spanish restaurant ... and I thoroughly enjoyed my glass of sangria!

an afternoon at Uma & Umpa (Grandma & Grandpa's) is always a lot of fun!

a bunch of things...

Photobucket

weekends are all about trying to spend some time at home...
relaxing... recharging... breathing!
lately though we have come crashing into our business's most busiest time of year... 3 weddings this month... + I cannot even count how many family shoots we have done... let alone everything that goes with that.

I am quite pleased though with how our business is growing and feel quite proud of it... I am happy to have success and try to be a good role model for my two girls! With all of this happiness comes a lot of work... and less time just playing with our children. So when we are off work... we really try to be OFF! We try to do fun things and really take each other in and be together!

We have had grandparents staying with us as well which has been so much fun! more of those pics coming soon...

but for now... here's a weekend of doing a lot of nothing...

SMOOTHIES!!!

this kitchen tool is maybe a magic wand!
one of the most used appliances besides the stove/oven...!
From when the girls were babies making baby food... to soup purees.. pasta sauce... smoothies... milkshakes!
It's fantastic!

kindergarten has been great!
a HUGE adjustment!
from lazy days of summer, right into fast paced getting to school on time... working on letters... to being amazed at how our child is learning... it's really cool!

with everything happening... so many new experiences...
we try to maintain a little bit of simplicity
like an afternoon of reading books...
"sigh"

a day with our littlest...

a day with my littlest... is so so sweet!
now that our oldest girl is off at kindergarten some days we like to take our littlest for little special days...
even though maybe every hour she asks if it's time to get Isabelle from "kindagaaden" ... we have a lot of one-on-one time
and when it's time to get Isabelle we can hardly wait!

this day Cecilia and I spend the morning at the park...
feeding the ducks and turtles... playground.. picnic!

and...
a very special day...
the first day I braided her hair in "pippi braids"

tutu cute!

I cannot describe the sweetness of a little girl at ballet class...
the little pink tummy
the little ballet shoes
it's melting cute!

We felt it was time to do something special for our youngest Cecilia...
so we signed her up for ballet class...
and she just LOVES it!

it's so cute how she concentrates and tries so hard...
and talks about it all week long...
I just think she feels pretty special doing something on her own...
