What We Like The Most!

Lately it has been so cold, so we have to be creative inside. Lyza has fun doing just about anything, but she loves when we play toys with her. Cyndal is soo good! She just watches all of us and smiles away, but her favorite thing is bath time. She is so fun to watch with her huge smile as she kicks and splashes. Well for me, I always like to have some sort of crafty thing to do. Lately I have been sewing a quilt. Lyza loves to help! These things are kind of a daily thing lately so I wanted to post what we have been up to!

Lyza has a MAJOR obsession with chap stick and lip gloss! She always has one in her hand or pocket, and if she doesn't she is on the hunt or asking for one! If we even think about taking it away, brace yourself! This is the one thing that will cause a huge meltdown that will last a LONG time. So needless to say I pick my battles!

This is Lyza's new signature "CrAzY fAcE" she makes it often to make us smile! Gotta love this girl!

I hope they stay this way for a long time! I wish I could freeze them and keep them this way.

I looked out the window...

I wish it was popcorn on the apricot tree! Um... Ya! Cold as can be! It was -15 today with a wind chill of -30! You could throw a cup of water in the air and it would freeze! Pretty crazy for us being from Arizona. We have been in weather up to 121 degrees in the summers, and we could even fry an egg on the sidewalk. Two huge extremes! I am learning to love it here though. Even though its cold it is beautiful! Whenever we go anywhere Marcus and I will look for the biggest icicle we can find! Its crazy how big they can get! 

Little Swimmer

We started Lyza in swim lessons, and she has been doing really good. The teacher says she is a "loud learner". She doesn't love being splashed or going under, so she cries during those parts, but she still holds her breath and reaches for the wall.  So I guess its her way of dealing with it, but I am glad she is still learning and doing well. Lyza comes home and sings all the songs we learn at swim lessons. Like "fishes in the ocean, fishes in the sea, we all jump in on one, two, three!" Then she pretends to jump in. She also always sings "Motor boat, Motor boat, under we go!" She even pretends things in the bath. So I think she secretly likes them more than she lets on!

Girl Time

One thing I love to do is cuddle with my girls. Its my favorite! I am lucky they like it too! Whenever Lyza is tired or cranky she will ask us to cuddle her, and every once in a while she will put her hand under her arm pit like she used to when she was a baby. I think she will always be my baby even though she is a full grown toddler.

Play Date

Lyza had a friend over today. I think I had as much fun as they did. We stayed in our pj's, built forts, ate popcorn, watched disney movies, made lunch and cup cakes! It totally took me back to when I was a kid. Memories like this were my favorite, so I hope Lyza will remember how much fun we had today!

Snow, snow and more snow!

We have had so much snow the past week! Lyza insisted on going out to play in it on several occasions. Needless to say, they never lasted very long. Too cold, but she sure did look cute! My favorite thing is to sing the mouth open wide song with her, and we try to catch the snow flakes in our mouth. Lyza is so fun at this age, always smiling and using that imagination of hers. When she thinks it is time to go in, she will say " Mommy, I think the frost bite is gonna get my fingers and my nose."
