When the Boys Are Away

She is pretty sure this is what her Dora Underwear are for. Aren't they?

The girls will PLAY! Oh and we did. Tonight was a girls night and it was fabulous! The boys went snowboarding (I'm still waiting to hear from them. They must be having a great time!) so Amelia, Libby and I had a girls night.

At around 2:00, Amelia came to me with her church shoes and said she wanted to put them on. I asked her why? and she said "for our GIRLS NIGHT!". Oh yeah, she's my girl all right!

We got the boys ready and on their way at around 4, and then we got ready. We went and got a gourmet vegetarian pizza from Papa Murphy's (our favorite!), then came home and made it. While we were waiting for the pizza to cook, we read books and talked about what we wanted to do. We had pizza, apples and carrot sticks, then Amelia had a nice long bubble bath. After her bath, I painted her toes and then we had chocolate banana shakes.

We finished off the night with me nursing Libby and Amelia and I watching American Idol.

They are both in bed now and I am just relishing the time I had with them. Amelia has never had me alone really. She always has to share me, so it was nice to have some one on one time with her tonight when Libby was sleeping. I love that girl.

She was so fascinated with those red toes and was just sure that I should have painted her legs too.

That's so wonderful! I love having a chance to spend one on one time with my kids who are in the middle. It's true that they don't get the alone time that the first and last do. I love her little painted nails!

Glad you ladies had a good evening. Doodle and I painted toenails yesterday, too. This morning she kept insisting on taking her socks off so she could see her silver toes. So cute!
