This week flew by, I can't believe this month is already half over!
Part of the reason the week flew by was due to the fact that I kept pretty busy.
Our weather has been warm making it easy to get things done around the house.
I needed to get some organizing done in some of the cabinets in the kitchen.
A few were getting to the point where it all might come tumbling out if opened.
Now it's much better in there ;)

I also spent my time crafting while the girls napped each day this week.
I finished my Vintage Journal and love how it came out.
How could I not like it, it has my girls on it ;)

I'm pretty sure Brooklyn spent the first few weeks of 2012 shedding her baby face and has been turning into a big girl in the blink of an eye
She amazes me everyday with her sweetness and mischievousness! 

The girls have loved watching the new movies they got from Christmas especially Gnomeo & Juliet.

Last night my father in law came out and took us to Chili's for dinner and then came back to spend some time with the girls.
They love having their grandparents out for visits, it's so fun seeing their excited faces when we tell them who is coming over.

Earlier in the week the girls wanted daddy to play on the ground and give them rides on his back.
He had just gotten home from work so he told them maybe later. 
The girls decided they could do it on their own so here they are taking matters into their own hands.

Silly girls, we had to stop them when we saw Kayla trying to sit on Brooklyn's back :)
Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Tomorrow the hubby and I are heading to the Mission Inn for their delicious brunch and then we will do some antiquing.
I have been waiting all week/month for tomorrow and now after weeks of sunshine and warm weather it's supposed to rain.
Go figure!
I'm sure it will still be a great time though

Yay for clean and organized pantries!

Brooklyn does look like such a big girl. She's looking so much like Kayla.

Have fun tomorrow! Hope the rain stays away for you. said...

Enjoy your special time with your hubby!

Have fun at The mIssion Inn!! Rain or shine, that is a fun place to be.
Adorable vintage journal you made!
And i know just how you feel, because I look at pics of claire and it looks like there is no more baby left in there. It does make me a bit sad! :(

They are so stinkin' cute! I love piggy back rides. Not sure my little guy has ever had one.
