I just wanted to take a quick second to send out positive thoughts to Lindsay's sweet daughter Olivia who is having tubes put in this morning. I hear it is an easy procedure, but I want her to know that we are thinking of her.
Back to the weekend. Friday we worked all day which is unusual for us, but it was a holiday week. After work and a quick stop at home, we went out to dinner. The girls did so well at first, but then major meltdowns ensued. Mostly because they were tired, but also because we couldn't feed them fast enough (ie we couldn't cut their food up fast enough). But I realized that evening that our girls LOVE to eat. They don't love to eat everything, but when we give them something they like, they will eat for days. Gotta get some chunk by on their thighs after being sick.
After the girls were in bed, we relaxed and enjoyed a glass of wine.
Saturday morning we headed out to breakfast where the girls devoured french toast, ham and some potatoes. Then the girls took a 2 1/2 hour glorious nap. We were able to do things around the house and make my grocery list uninterrupted. That afternoon I went to the grocery store and then we took a long family walk. I am loving the warm weather intermixed with the snow here and there. I made a simple dinner of bltas and sweet potato tator tots and we watched the Nevada vs. UNLV game. Nevada lost. Boo.

Sunday we had breakfast with my in-laws since they hadn't seen the girls in a week or so (they can't get enough of their grandbabies). The girls devoured their french toast. A huge plate full plus cheerios. They can EAT. After brunch, we headed home for nap time. The girls napped and then played for quite awhile. I made the girls Whole Wheat Strawberry and Banana Muffins while they napped. They were a huge hit when they had one as a snack before shopping. We headed to the mall to look for Easter dresses and shorts/dresses (for Mexico). We were able to score 6 shorts and skirts for $30. We grabbed some coffee and headed home for a mini nap before dinner with my family for my sisters birthday.
These are very good. I can't wait to try them with carrots, zucchini and other fruits/veggies.
The muffins were a huge hit!
My sister, her boyfriend, my parents, my aunt, Rory, the girls and I all went to dinner at M3. The girls showed off their large appetites and ate an entire plateful of chicken strips, some mashed potatoes from grandmas plate and some pasta and bread from their aunts plate. The girls were in heaven. Dinner went late, but the girls enjoyed hanging out with their family. And Avery got extra cuddles from her grandpa.

It was the perfect evening to end the weekend.
We got my sister a Glassy Baby for her birthday. Don't know what a Glassy Baby is? It is a hand blown candle holder. We have several around our house and love them, so we got one for my sister. I chose the sister one since she is my sister and she loves the color purple. They are all unique and beautiful. Plus part of the sales are donated. Total win. And they come with soy candles.
Hope you all had a good weekend!
