Charlotte has begun to play Beauty and the Beast instead of Ariel! I am so sick of Ariel that I can't even say. Now she gets to be Belle and Evelyn usually gets to be the Beast. I get to be Gaston. This involves Charlotte walking around holding a book then I am supposed to take her book and toss it in the mud and then tell her she should marry me. She just walks around with a bunch of books all the time. I asked her why and she said, "Because Belle really likes reading books." We also get to clean up the "ballroom" a lot to get ready for Belle and the Beast to dance. I'm so glad I got them the movie for Christmas!

I hope these are the last snow pictures I post this winter...

Hooray! The snow has finally melted and I couldn't be happier. Sure, it was fun for a day or even two, but I can't stand to be stuck in the house. Monte was able to make it to work every day, which left me here all day for at least a week straight with the girls. Don't get me wrong, I love spending time with them, but I had some serious cabin fever going on. Add morning/all day sickness to the equation and you can imagine how enjoyable it has been.
Our family made it for Christmas and I was never happier to see some people other than the four of us!

Snow? Bring it on!

the many faces of Evelyn

Evelyn climbed up on this chair with a mermaid tail, very impressive!
Monte and I took Charlotte to see the Nutcracker. We went downtown and did some Christmas shopping at Nordstrom and then had a nice lunch, just the 3 of us. Then we headed to the ballet. She only lasted about 30 minutes, but it's a start...
