Chicago-My Kind Of Town

We made it to the Magnificent Mile Festival of Lights. Chloe was very excited to see Corbin Bleu from High School Musical and Ava was excited to see Mickey and Minnie Mouse. It was a bit chilly but to see their little faces light up was worth every frozen toe and finger. We love the city this time of year. Christmas is definitely in the air! We've made this parade of lights a tradition and hope that one day when if we ever leave Chicago these memories will last a lifetime for our girls!

miss you jean!

here's a shout out to my fabulous sister Jean. She recently made a move to sunny los angeles where she is now pursuing an acting career-ok just kidding she's a corporate 9-5 working gal.
i wanted you to know that we miss you here in Chicago. the girls miss seeing you 5 times a
week during your lunch break and i miss having a built-in babysitter! no really i miss that we can't see you everyday and that you have been such an amazing aunt. we love you!
may love and happiness find you in L.A.

Chloe's photos

Chloe loves to take pictures with my camera...a little scary but
as you can see from the pictures posted here she does a pretty
good job.
She took a picture of Ava getting into some of her Halloween
candy and i love that Ava is about to eat the three musketeers
bar (wrapper and all)!

Love to color!

Here are some pictures of the girls at home. They just love to color and draw.
Ava dosen't always make it on to the paper and Chloe has become quite the artist.
We've been running out of room for all their art work. If you happen to make it over
you will see their creations on doors, walls, refrigerators anywhere we have space for it.

Trick 'or Treat

We had a lot of fun on Halloween. Chloe decided months ago that she would be ariel from the little mermaid and Ava was snow white/pumpkin. She couldn't decided between the two so she was a little bit of both.

Chloe had a party at school and as you can see from the pictures ava made herself right at home with the cake. she was perfectly content sitting all by herself at a table and going to town on the spider cupcakes. Chloe's teacher is the Cinderella in the picture. It looks like they were wrapping Chloe up like a mummy.

Ava at the Park

ava and i thought we would get one last warm day in at the park. she is obsessed with
this little car that they have there. i think that this will have to make it on her Christmas list.

Here are some pictures of ava and her best buddy piper. they are joined at the hip.
We see each other everyday when we drop off the older sisters at school. We also take
dance and art class with each other every week. they just can't be seperated.
