Last Saturday evening we went to a Greek restaurant to celebrate my birthday and my sister in law's birthday with the family.  The girls have been running around the house yelling OPA! ever since.  They were truly fascinated by the saganaki...or flaming cheese if you will.  Last night the girls were in the basement playing. Addison made Alexis go stand in the corner of the room and pretend to be the belly dancer that we saw at the restaurant while she made her own pretend saganaki.  She can't say saganaki, so she just says she is making food that is on fire and then yells opa!  It's so funny. 

While we were at dinner they had a belly dancer that was dancing around the restaurant.  She grabbed Alexis and started dancing with her.  My girl has moves!  Addison really was not interested at all.  I've been trying to get my video to upload since Saturday with no success.  Boo!  But here are a few pictures from my phone.  They are not great because of the glare from the sun.

Green Thumbs!

Earlier this week our neighbor had asked me to water her flowers and tomato plants while she was out of town.  Of course, I had two little assistants who were more than willing to help out! 
I think they may have green thumbs, unlike their Momma!  :-)

Human Hamsters??

About a month ago, we went to a carnival at a local church here in town.  The girls had a great time riding some rides, enjoying yummy carnival food, and hanging out with their cousins.  Several times during our outing Alexis kept pointing to a large ball that was rolling on the grass.  She kept saying "I do it!  I do it!".  Being the overprotective Mom that I am, I brushed it off.  But once again as we were getting ready to leave she kept asking to do it.  We proceeded over to check it out.  I had never seen the human hamster ball before, but the girls LOVED it!!  The concept is that you run inside the ball pushing the walls, making the ball roll.  Due to the fact my kiddos are so tiny, we had to help them by walking along side of them and pushing the ball.  They seriously had so much fun!  Here are a few pictures:

After the carnival we went out to dinner with Terry's family.  The girls seriously chowed down on some butter noodles....One of their favorite foods at the moment. 

Addison would not allow her picture to be taken while eating her "sketti".

Beach Babies!!

This weekend we took the girls again to our local "beach".  The girls love this place and could play for hours in the sand and water.  I was excited that I finally remembered my camera this time.....only to turn it on and realize the battery was dead.  :-(  

So pictures from my phone will have to suffice.  The weather was great although these photos don't reflect that.  It was just warm enough that the water was comfortable, but not too warm that sitting on the sand was miserable.  It was slightly overcast so I wasn't completely worried about my little fair-skinned Addison burning like crazy. (That didn't stop be from bathing her in sunscreen though!) 

Here are a few pictures:
