Snow Day!

We had another few inches of snow yesterday and so the girls and I went out for an afternoon of play! I decided to bring out my camera and practice using some of the settings that I learned on my first day of photography class. It was fun to finally take my camera off of the "auto" setting. I'm looking forward to learning a lot more at my upcoming classes, but for now, here are our snow pictures!

We are continuing to have a busy winter. We're "scheduled" like crazy. If you are wondering what we are up to...

Monday - We go to Open Gym at the Rec Center. This is one of the girls favorite activities. They open a huge gym to toddlers and put out an insane amount of wonderfully age appropriate toys. It's a free for all and a little crazy, but so much fun! We also sometimes have an afternoon playgroup on Mondays!
Tuesday - We go to our Whirlygig music class. This class is great and the girls are loving learning new songs and playing with all sorts of cool instruments.
Wednesday - We alternate between Storytime at the library and Toddler Theater. Storytime is fun, but a little more laid back, whereas Toddler Theater is a crazy, toddler dancing, music playing, great time.
Thursday - We have our toddler twins playgroup. This is one of my favorite days of the week, because I love getting time to relax with my other twin mom friends and the girls enjoy playing at a different house and with other twin friends!
Friday - For the next few weeks, the girls are going to Grandma Heidi's house in the mornings, while I get some much needed "me time" at photography class. I'm absolutely loving learning more about how to actually use my camera that I've had for a year now. And it's great to learn, socialize and meet other adults, without listening to yelling children!

So, as you can see we're busy with our packed schedule, in addition our regular day-to-day activities, but we're loving every second (or almost every second)!

More Dancing!

You saw a quick clip of Macy's new favorite activity in my last post, but here's an even better one! This shows her true talents! It's hilarious to watch both girls, but especially Macy get really into dancing.

A quick side track, but one of my favorite new purchases is a video baby monitor. I've wanted one since the girls were born, but Brian was totally against the idea and thought they were totally unnecessary. Once we discovered that Sadie was attempting an escape from her crib, we decided it was time to do a little bit more monitoring of what goes on at bedtime/naptime. I'm so happy that I waited, because I was able to get a fantastic, touch screen, video monitor that just came on the even holds up to 4 cameras! I'm totally in love with this thing! But, back to dancing. So, while watching the girls in their cribs, we noticed that not only does Macy dance with us, but she also does her fair share of dancing in her crib too! It's hilarious!

So, here they dancing girls (and Daddy too!)

Dance Party, Macy style!

Macy seems to have inherited her Dad's rhythm and love of dancing! Considering the fact that I can barely follow a beat, I'd say that's a good thing...what do you think???
