A few days after Christmas, Aunt Julie took us to LegoLand in Grapevine Mills Mall. It was pretty cool! This was the "pink princess" area.
I loved this big giraffe in the baby area.
Izzie liked the little bumper car exhibit.
The next day, I went out to run some errands and Grandma had all the kids! Well, except for Holly who was at a doctor's appointment if I remember correctly. They had fun playing games in the backyard among other fun activities with just Grandma. John and Grandpa were out playing golf.
Sabrina and Sammy watching the kids play.
I love this picture! John showing something to Sabrina, Lucy, Izzie and Maddie on the iPad mini he got for Christmas.
To say that this family has lots of tablet computers is an understatement. But they are sort of awesome. Even little Holly is a pro at working the iPad! Especially when her big cousin Sammy is right there to help out.
Maddie, Izzie and Sabrina playing with a building toy that Santa brought.
Izzie playing Bows and Arrows!
After they knocked down an angel off the hall tree the day before, the archery was moved outside.
And a few hours later out of know where, splut... two girls not feeling well on my lap. We were at Nanny's house to say Merry Christmas to Aunt Judy and Uncle Jim, when these two girls got hit with a bug that literally lasted for a month. This was Dec 28th, and today Jan 28th is the first day I'd declare both girls healthy (knock on wood). It's been a looooong month! They never got really bad sick, just a cough that would NOT go away!
Still not feeling well, we went over to Aunt Julie's house for their birthday party with this side of the family. It was supposed to be at Jackie's but John was running a fever before we left the house (not knowing that the girls were going to be flopping an hour later, too) Julie graciously hosted at the last minute. Here's Sabrina ready to help Izzie and Maddie check out birthday presents.
What a fun cake!
They asked Grandma for a cookie cake and she ordered them a small one, but got this big one instead. They didn't mind... well, except they were feeling so miserable at this point that they barely ate any cake.
