Playing Catch-up

I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted (pretty sure I say that everytime!).  We were very busy over winter break, but we are all back to work/school.
Christmas was so much fun.  Myah and Maysen are really into it now.  Mylie tore some paper and ate it, and played with the boxes. 
Our "big" Christmas gift to the girls was getting their ears pierced.  They had been asking for it for quite sometime and they seriously needed nothing else (not that they needed their ears pierced).

Is anyone else noticing that the "After" smile isn't as big as the "before" smile?  They are really loving their earrings now, though!  They each also got a new outfit and Myah and Maysen got their own 31 Littles Carry-all bag.
Did I mention that they got matching outfits?  Mylie doesn't know what to think about that--M&M are used to it!!

I took the girls ice skating for the first time over break.  We had a play date with our friend Nate and his mom, Stacy.  It was interesting and right away, I was sort of thinking we wouldn't last long (that it would be too hard for the girls), but they loved it and we were there for about 2 hours.  It was colder inside the Ice Arena than it was outside that day....crazy for Iowa at the end of December!!

Mylie is finding new reasons everyday for why she should love having older sisters.  This might have been one of her favorites--they know where the really good toys (aka-pots and pans) are located and will get out the play food and "cook" with her!

Happy 2012 everyone!
