Mommy gets away!

*******Little note on the coats: We do live in Southern California where it is very warm, but in the winter there are times when it can get to freezing at night. Also, the coats are actually a very light coat that would probably keep you as warm as a sweater. I really bought them to go over there dresses on Sundays. I will still need to get warmer everyday type coats. And I bought them at Target so they were really not that expensive.********** SundayI went on my first trip away from the girls. We belong to an organization called Young Presidents Organization and my forum had our retreat. My forum sisters were kind enough to make our trip with-in driving distance so that if I needed to I could go home. I was gone two nights and Daddy was in charge! He did an awesome job! I am so lucky to have a husband that I can leave my girls with and know that they will be taken care of as well as I do. They did a lot of fun things like go to the grocery store, the car wash, the park, etc. But Mike is not a blogger so I don't have any pictures. But I do have some pictures that were taken in the few days before I left. It was a very relaxing trip and I even had time for a facial! Meilynn coming down the stairs by herself! Taking a little rest. We got the very important citizenship paper and a letter from the President! But Mommy had to take the picture down because it showed all of our private information.
Emma looking guilty Throwing stickers in the toilet! I love this picture. Mike left his shoes by the step and both girls lined their shoes up with his sometime when I didn't see. Trying on new coats that Mommy bought at Target. They are a 24 month and way too big! Getting a picture with both of them looking is almost impossible!
Meilynn on her way to our local toy store where they have crafts, story, and singing. Most of the kids go to the train table to play before the class, but mine like playing with the multiplication math game. Maybe they will be like their big sister Meghan and be Math majors! Making peacocks Daddy was the helper that day! Grandpa can we have this for Christmas?
Meilynn and Emma with their Aunt Julie who lets them play with her cell phone Meilynn, Aunt Julie,and Emma Mommy took back our coats and got 12 month size. It is a better fit! Meilynn likes her new coat!

Sweet pictures of the wee ones.

So glad Mama could get away for some "me time" and kudos to Daddy for holding down the fort while Mama was gone!!

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing about Californian's needing winter coats, but then I realized I didn't know what part of CA you're from. It really doesn't matter though, your kids, your money, right?
Now in MICHIGAN, we NEED coats! In fact, some of the most precious coats couldn't cut it for 10 minutes in a Michigan winter (so sad for a shopping Mommy!). The girls look adorable in them by the way.
