Ice skating.

Today we went ice skating. Sam has been wanting to try for a while and she absolutely loved it, now she wants to take lessons. I am planning on signing her up for group lessons but also a couple private sessions so she can really learn.
Here is Jeff and her getting ready:


She used a walker at first and did so well. She was so serious about it.
Even Anaïs had fun:

And then she got more comfortable and didn't need the walker anymore.

Can't wait for her to start her lessons!

The little mom.

Here is Anaïs pushing her baby around in the stroller.

She fixed dinner for her baby...
And fed her:
What a great little mom! Now time for a silly picture!

A Sunday afternoon at home...

This morning the girls and I went to the gym bright and early, around 8:00. By the time we got home it was about 10:30. We stayed home the rest of the day. The girls played together pretty well today...well for the most part! lol

For some reason, they were both after Sam's french flag today...they both wanted it at the same time.

As always...Anaïs got what she wanted and Sam gave in and gave it to her.

Then later on, I found Anaïs going through Sam's school backpack where Sam must always have a full change of uniform. Well, Anaïs DEMANDED to put Sam's underwear on her head...I guess she thought it was a hat or something.
When Sam saw that, of course she wanted to put something silly on her head too so she got a tutu skirt, it looked freaking huge on her head! LOL


Then Sam decided it was Anaïs' turn to get the tutu...


Later on, when Sam was taking her bath, I got a cute video of Anaïs getting all wet because of Sam's crazy splashing:

Busy week-end!

We had a pretty busy week-end. On Saturday, I ran my very first race, a 5K. Besides the fact that it was raining pretty hard, it went well. My time was 30:59 which I'm ok with considering this was my first race EVER. Here is an action shot: That evening we had the Valentine's LPA party. We had a wonderful time, as always!
Anaïs was excited to show off her new walking skills.

Sam got to decorate cookies and do a craft, she was busy the entire time we were there!


Here is Anaïs and her good friend Destiny. They are only 2 weeks apart in age and both have achondroplasia, they are pretty lucky to have each other!


They got to eat some chocolates and got pretty messy!


Great party!
Then, on Sunday Sam and I had a playdate with her best friend from school, Kylee. Since it was too cold for the park, we went to McDonald's for an ice cream cone that way they got to play in the playplace there. Sam had so much fun!

That's pretty much it for the week-end. Jeff is already back in Salt Lake for work and the girls and I drive up on Wednesday since Anaïs has her MRI an Friday...hopefully it will be good and we can be done with surgeries and medical appointments for a while!
