Lexie has NO FEAR!!!


We had a great spring break and I have tons of precious, precious pictures to post---playing at a friend's house, Barney pictures, great pics from the park, Atlanta Children's Museum....BUT, I have to share these videos with you!! Lexie is CRAZY!! Yep, that girl is going to keep me on my toes!!

On Saturday, a dear friend brought the girls a Barbie Power Wheel that her daughters have outgrown (Thanks Meredith, Molly, & Ivey). So, we thought Janie would love it...we charged it up and took it outside and took a smaller riding toy for Lexie so she wouldn't get jealous. 

So Janie got on it, rode it about 3 feet and wanted OFF. She was not into it at all and I didn't want to force it on her. I'm sure she will eventually feel better about it and want to ride it. 
But, Lexie--well that is another story. 

She immediately ran to it and crawled on. We were a little concerned b/c it is way to big for her--but she LOVED it. And she had a BLAST!! Check out the video proof below!!!!!!!!! What a little daredevil she is. 

Love my girls so much....they compliment each other so well-they are so much alike yet so different in so many ways!! It is so amazing watching them experience life! Enjoy the video and be prepared to LAUGH!

Here she is just learning how to operate it. She had "accidently" made it go a few times and was really trying to figure out how to do it again. Poor thing, her little legs just aren't long enough for her little feet to press the pedal. But she does great!! I love how when she really gets going you can hear Janie say "LEXIE" and run to her! So cute! Then towards the end when she hits Janie's toy, Janie says "Oh no-whoa".....priceless!

Here she is getting the hang of it--watch out Janie!! Then she stops because she gets distracted by the neighbor's dog. You can hear her trying to say "doggie".

And now, everyone watch out! This girl has got it! She is ready to go, go, go!!!

Cupcakes, Hair Cuts, Bouncing, and Spring Break

Yep, that is one long title for this post. Well, it is because we have done some fun, picture-worthy stuff lately that I just haven't ever posted....so here we go......

Cupcakes
Janie's new obsession. She loves them. Back in December during the snow storm, we stayed at Mimi's for the week. One day Janie and Mimi baked up some yummy cupcakes. 





Hair Cuts
The girls' hair grows really fast. They get hair cuts very often. One of our favorite places is Kidz Doos here in Athens. They have cool cars/planes to sit in, movies playing, slides, toys, dress up clothes, and a huge play house. The girls love it. They host b-day parties where they paint nails, do hair styles, and host a fashion show. When the girls get older we will have to have a b-day party there. Here are some pics from a hair cut a few months ago.



Bouncing
Janie loves to bounce. She will bounce anytime, anywhere. Gramps entered his motorcyle in a local car show last weekend...they had an inflatable jumper with a HUGE ladder and a slide. Janie loved, loved, loved it. She immediately saw it and said "A Bounce, a bounce, oooohhh weee" and took no time crawling up into it. She even climbed the huge ladder and slid down by herself--no fear in that little girl! Lexie was VERY UPSET that mommy would not let her go in. She tried so hard. She was so jealous. Finally when the bigger kids were gone, I let her go in. I think she loved it even more than Janie (if that is even possible). My silly boucning girls.
