Valentine's Day!

The girls were luckily feeling better for Valentine's day! They had school that day and lots of fun at Valentine's  day parties! I took all these with my Iphone so pictures are lacking :/

The girls have been practicing their letters. So I had them write their names...well I wrote in pencil and they traced it with marker. 

Kinley writing her name!

 Madelyn writing away...

Since we have had lots of issues due to the girls "preemie teeth" I didn't want to send candy, I figured they would get enough at their party. We went with Goldfish..."I'm glad we are in the same school"

Thank you Pinterest for the fun idea but that was a lot of of Valentines for two classes!



I had a blast at their parties getting to see them interact with all their friends away from their sister. I'm sure I have said this before but it has been an ABSOLUTE blessing to have our girls in two classes. I am SOOO glad we did it from the beginning, they don't know any different.

Sweet Madelyn.

 My girls out on the playground together for a spilt second. Their teachers say they LIGHT up when they see each other...Every one in Madelyn's class call Kinley "Sissy". I think they think that is her real name. Madelyn pretty much only calls her that. 

Kinley! 


All their LOOT...

Don't worry mommy didn't get left out!

Big 4 year old room!


Ok, so I am way behind...but what else is new. I'm going to stop feeling guilty and get done what I can. ;)

  So since the girls were sick on their actual birthday I had to flip my ideas around a bit. I had decided to not have a HUGE party this year already (but DO NOT worry I actually think the girls got more partying in this way) I wanted to redo their room instead and we are planning a big Disney trip this year. We sent the girls to school to celebrate with their classes while we did all the hard work ;).

My BIG girls!
My awesome cousin made this cookies for them to take...THEY LOOKED AND TASTED AMAZING!
I didn't tell the girls ANYTHING about getting a new room while they were gone. We were having a little party with grandparents, cousins, aunts and Uncles. I locked their door so everyone could watch them see it for the first time. Our parents all chipped in some too for their big girl room. I have video of the girls but I have no idea where it is...They actually didn't react the way I expected at first. They seemed scared but quickly warmed up and asked us to leave so they could go to sleep...yeah that part wore off! 
All Finished! I love the way it turned out! 

 It was cuter when they were in cribs but here was the toddler room
 I had this great idea I didn't want closet doors...ha, that was until they were bigger. They were constantly into everything!
I painted their dresser.

 Kinley's Bed


Madelyn's Bed
I made the letters and my college friend Amber made that sign when the girls were born. 
The girls first night in their big girl beds! They look tiny in their big beds!


The girls still love their new room and love to make their beds! It is still surreal walking into their room and realizing that we now have girls that are big enough for twin beds! It was a little hard for mama to get rid of the last bit of baby we had left...tear!
