Thankfully it has been really nice this winter. We have had a few storms, but overall VERY mild. In fact, it has been pretty nice lately, nice enough that we have been going to the park. In February. In Utah! Sophie of course is in her pajama's. But at least she is dressed.

Aubree is my castle builder. They are amazing. Multi-leveled, filled with different toys, squinkies, accessories, etc...and every day there's something new. She LOVES showing us and explaining everything to us. I should have taken pictures before now. I want to document them for her. Here is one of her simple castles. All the occupants were put away, but I thought I'd snap a few shots to start off her collection.
Pretty cute, right?

We're going to Florida in May. Disney World, Universal (for Harry Potter land) and then Cocoa Beach. We are EXCITED!!! It dawned on me that I want our family to be more travel friendly. Which mostly revolves around Sophie. So we have made some major changes. First....no more crib. I want her "bed trained" and since her crib converts, we didn't have to buy any furniture. :)
The second major change is diapers. We decided we were done, and she needs to learn ASAP. That's the main thing I want accomplished for traveling. So we potty trained her! It actually was quite easy. It's amazing what waiting until they're ready will do. This was our third attempt and I guess the third time is a charm! We kept it simple and easy. Two tiny treats every time she pees (pez, and these tiny reeses cups I found at the dollar store) , and a squinkie for every time she poops! Within the first week she only had three accidents. We're now into the second week with no accidents. We've even done parties, errands, and outings. AWESOME!!!! I still put a diaper on at nap and night. But I figure between now and May we will be completely trained. YES!!!

We fish sat for our neighbors while they were away at Disney Land. Not quite a fair trade! But come May, it'll be our turn. :) We had the fish set up so the girls could see it easily. NOT a good idea. I found a few squinkies floating in there, and a headless polly taking a plunge. Needless to say, it was moved to a more appropriate place.

Valentine's Day growing up was always about my Dad and his girls'. I LOVED that. We would get a special little present and handmade card from him. I wanted to have that same special day for my girls with their Dad. So we have taken on the tradition. It's more about them, then Dave and I. In fact we don't do anything for each other anymore, and I actually like it better this way.
HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!

Sophie was invited to her first princess party. Coincidentally she had just received an Ariel princess dress from Grandma. She was SO EXCITED.
And soon enough was participating.
First princess party=huge success.
Later that night we had a birthday "party" for my sister Kelsey and my brother in law Eric. In case you were wondering...yes, there was a dance session.
It was a fun night! And I hope they had fun celebrating their day.
