...just hanging out at home, trying to take it easy. Here Dr. Abbey was giving our ever-patient Dory a check up.
I picked up this super cool Solar System puzzle at Ross for $5.99. We had a fun time putting it together as a family one evening last week...
The coolest part about it is it GLOWS IN THE DARK. So cool. David had to hold it up to the lights for a minute to "charge" it, but then when we turned the lights out it lit up and the kids were enthralled (okay maybe I was too)
Hanging around the house requires lots of creativity, which Abigail is clearly not lacking in. Here, we turned a wrapping paper tube and some black and brown construction paper into "Beauty", her horse...
Cutest cowgirl ever.
And if you're looking for this boy, be prepared to battle at all times...
Cutest warrior ever.
He's pretty stealth in battle...
...and is known to use The Force at crazy times, like even in the middle of rolling dough...
We also had some fun birthday parties to attend this week. The first one I completely forgot to take pictures at, but it was a fun Lego Star Wars party (Luke was in Heaven) where the kids each got to bring home a Lego rocketship to build. I think we're still a little too young for Legos around here, but I know it's only a matter of time before they litter our floors completely.
The second one was a bowling party. This was Abbey and Luke's first time bowling, and they LOVED it. We bowled with bumpers, so each roll resulted in knocked down pins...which made for some very happy preschoolers!!
They started with these ramp things, and quickly ditched them for
shot-putting rolling the balls all by themselves =). It was really fun, and we will definitely be going again soon!
Yesterday we attended a Tae Kwon Do party. It was crazy fun! I only had my phone (which is an incredibly cheap, pre-paid phone) so I didn't get any good pictures, but these blurry ones kinda captured Abbey and Luke smashing and kicking boards in half! SO COOL!
I think after the holidays I'm going to sign the twins up for some Martial Arts classes. They loved it, and I love how it teaches self-control and self-defense.
Well, I'd love to wrap this post up all tidy-like with a bow...but I got nothing.
Just your average week in review =).
