Happy New Year

The girls hung out with grandma and grandpa today.  Jordan got sick again all the sudden and was not too active today.  Lindsay did a lot of reading and some swimming with grandma and made cookies with grandpa.

Jordan went to school for a few hours this morning while daddy and Lindsay ran a few errands.  Daddy also took Lindsay to the park for a little bit.  We picked up Jordan and met mommy for lunch.  This afternoon we played in the sandbox and the swings for awhile.  Later we headed over to grandma and grandpa's house.

Lindsay was not good about being dropped off or picked up from school.  She also threw fits about not getting a snack, getting her hair brushed and bedtime.  Jordan gets into everything.  The walking is cute but makes her a lot of trouble.

Lindsay went to school today but mommy picked her up early.  Jordan's school was closed so she hung out with mommy.  Jordan wants everything that is not hers.  She was taking stuff out of the diaper bag this evening and then trying to run away when she saw me coming to get it from her.  She also still likes to climb on Lindsay's rocking chair.  The 2 girls played together real nicely in the tub tonight.

Merry Christmas

We had a good day today.  Jordan got a swing, keys, picnic basket, and a few other toys and some clothes.  Lindsay got a tire swing, princess Tiana outfit, some personalized books, a doll and some clothes.  Both girls tried out their swings.  Around lunch time grandma and grandpa Mattern arrived along with Aunt Lisa and Uncle Robby.  The girls had a good time playing with everyone.

Girls day

Mommy and the girls went to the library for a bit today.  Then they went to Gator Freds.  Both girls enjoyed it.  Jordan liked her first time in the bounce house, the slide and pushing a fire truck.  Lindsay liked dressing up and was really excited to see Santa there.  Tonight we went looking at Christmas lights and both girls fell asleep in the car.

Jordan stayed home with mommy today.  They dropped off Lindsay and played with her for a little while.  At home they played around the house and took Serenity for a walk.  This evening the girls were a bit grumpy.  We did a brief skype with Aunt Becca and Uncle Gary.  We went to 5 Guys and Jordan was not staying sitting in her high chair.

Lindsay seems mostly better although she is still a little congested and snotty.  She fell off the monkey bars today and scraped her face a little bit.   Jordan took her sippy cup to school today and promptly got in a sippy cup fight with one of her classmates.

Home with grandma

Lindsay stayed home with grandma today.  She is definitely still very congested and maybe had a little fever.  She is not eating much but played pretty well with grandma.  Jordan went to school for a little bit and then came home with grandma.  Jordan took a long afternoon nap.  The girls also got a bath for the third consecutive day.

Sick Lindsay

Well, Lindsay is sick again.  She threw up this morning and then was quite warm this afternoon.  She also took a nap for the second straight day which is very unlike her.  Jordan slept for 13 1/2 hours last night and actually slept in until 9.  She definitely likes grandma's hershey kiss cookies.  Lindsay was playing dress up and is wearing Lisa's communion dress.
