Mimi comes to play

 Last week Daddy went away on a golf trip so Mimi came to hang out.
 Although we were so busy with the new school year, dance, and swimming we still managed to get in some play.
 (Taking a milk break).

 And a beautiful day at the zoo.

 Love you Mimi.

We Love Make-up

 If you know these little girls or have checked out our blog for even a quick second, you would probably know they are the ultimate girly-girls.
 So, after them bugging (and bugging) to try out my make-up, I finally decided to give them a little of their own. I found these cute lil' boxes at the dollar spot at Target. 
 Pink and purple boxes + stickers + old makeup that I no longer use= two very happy little girls.

I may be a sucker but who can resist this little face--even with makeup on?

Another great school year...

 So we saw Tess start her new school a couple of weeks ago. She will be going to the neighborhood Elementary School for Preschool two days a week.
 She and Teah just started back at Ms. Bobbi's last week where they will both go two days a week.
 We sure do love Ms. Bobbi's.

Here's to another great school year.

Mountain Getaway

Two weekends ago we headed up to Estes Park for the night with friends. Sort of summer's last hurrah before school started up for both girls.

 Nature is seriously the best playground.

 I think the kids could have played at the creeks with sticks and rocks for most of the day.

 There is something so peaceful about being in the mountains. Ahh....

 We all hopped in a gondola and went up the mountain. Here is the view going up,

 and back down.
That big white building way in the distance is the Stanley Hotel (The hotel the movie The Shining was written about.)

Always good to get away a bit to gain a little perspective and truly appreciate what we have. Now back to the grind. :)

New School

 So Tess is now going to two schools!  
She will continue at Ms. Bobbi's two days a week and then go to the elementary preschool for another two.

We started at the elementary last week and as you can probably tell, she LOVES it!

Can't get enough of those tutus

 Time to show off some of Tessa's dancing skills.
