Busy Weekend...

This post actually covers Wednesday-Sunday.

Some friends of ours came into town on Wednesday evening. 

Amelia and Presley became fast friends. 

They stayed the night with us the first night. 

Mellow Mushroom opened last week and I've been wanting to try it. 
I didn't know when I would get a chance to go since Alex doesn't eat pizza.

So while Alex was at work on Thursday, we headed over to check it out.
It was SO GOOD.

Amelia and Presley.

Allie and Sydney.

On Thursday evening, our friends stayed at a hotel just a few minutes from our home.

They asked Amelia to stay with them.

This would be her first sleepover without family or her Mama!

She was so excited to swim and have a sleepover. 

I was sort of a nervous wreck.

She was cool as a cucumber.

They painted nails and stayed up way too late. 

Just like you're supposed to do at a sleepover!

I picked them up on Friday afternoon and we headed back to our house.

Allie watched the girls while the Mamas went to get a pedicure. 

I was so embarrassed by my feet. 
I hadn't been in over 7 weeks.
They were bad.

Luckily, I've been going to the same person 
for over 10 years and she doesn't judge me.

Our friends headed home on Friday afternoon.

Alex wanted us to take my Mama out on Friday evening to celebrate her new job.
We went to The Pantry.  
It was yummy!

I'm SO EXCITED to have my parents closer to us!!

We went to Alexandria's last dance recital on Saturday afternoon. 

Sydney made it through the first hour but Amelia sat through the entire thing.
Alex took Sydney out and came back when it was time for Alexandria to dance. 
Nana let Amelia give her flowers to Alexandria. 
She thought that was pretty neat. 

Alexandria had a solo dance and Amelia said, 
"what Alexandria did was so amazing!"

Alex and Sydney were already in the car so they didn't get their picture taken. 

Can't believe this girl is starting her freshman year of COLLEGE in the Fall!

Fresh out of the bath on Sunday morning. 

She loves to brush her teeth. 
I'm talking at least three times a day.

Our girls before church. 

I love the expression on Sydney's face.

I didn't even realize they were holding hands 
until I started looking through the pics.
So stinkin' sweet. 

We went to lunch with church family after the service.
Made Amelia's day that Kandace was there!

Sydney has been a handful over the past few days. 

She insisted that Alex put all of these clothes over her dress last night. 

Or she would scream.

So he did it.

She had about 6 layers of clothing on in this picture. 
She was acting a little bonkers last night.  
I think teething has gone to her head.

I've been using instaquote a lot lately. 
I've noticed several people using it and I've had people ask me about it.
It's an easy way to keep up with what your little ones are saying.
I like having a way to post them on my blog as well.
I know how easy it is for me to forget the funny things she says
and the thought of being able to go back and read them - love that!

I finally picked up the Jesus Storybook Bible for my girls a couple of weeks ago. 
Everyone at the DotMom Conference recommended it.
I noticed they've also come out with DVDs.
There are two volumes so far.
We've all enjoyed watching them!

It's a new day. 
A new week.
We're always exhausted by the end of the weekend.
Monday is our lazy day. 
We're still in our pjs and it's almost noon. 

Mondays aren't so bad.

Love to all,

Instaquote is an amazing little tool...I need to start using it too! Her quotes crack me up! I love the tunic top you're wearing in the recital picture. Where is not from
