Exciting stuff at home.

Here are some of the things we have been doing.  Not really to much but the kids were excited to do all these things and we didn't even really leave the house.  (The best kind right?!)  

Here is Corina and Aurora in the rain.  They were dying to go outside with their umbrellas.
I think Corina looks like she is going to take off like Mary Poppins.  

This is Gwyneth at Mark's baseball practice.  They practice at a sports complex in Cambridge.  There is a huge field that has a baseball field and soccer and American football.  Gwyneth was trying to pick up all the baseballs.

There was an army picnic on the base.   Here are Corina and Aurora watching some kids doing a king of the hill event.  You had to knock each other off the domes with a puffy stick.   

 Here is Gwyneth at the picnic playing soccer with some soldiers.

 Corina got her face painted.  

One day I was upstairs cleaning and throwing down the dirty clothes to go to the laundry room.  I didn't know Aurora was making a huge bed in the middle of the living room with all the blankets.  ha ha.  They had the best time with that.  Here they are in the bed.

I told them to pretend like they were sleeping.  Gwyneth couldn't stop smiling at the camera though.  

One day there was a butterfly in the yard and it was very friendly.  They caught it in this bottle (that had a bigger hole in the side) and stuck flowers in there.  Aurora thought she was so cool to get to carry the bottle with the butterfly in it.  They were really excited about that.  

Here is the fathers day pic I took of Mark and the girls.  Everyone looked so cute on their way to church.

 And last but not least.... We have two cats and they are very tolerant.  They let Corina and Aurora put little crowns on them and all of that.  The other day Aurora came running down the stairs and said Lily looks so pretty mom.  They had dressed her up in a bride build a bear outfit.  She didn't seem to mind at all.  I had to take a picture.  

As for me this week I have my first Dr. appointment on the big base here where I will deliver.  I will be 37 weeks this week.  It's not going to be long now.  

Have a great week.

Super Secret Fairy Princess Spies

It was a pretty creative week for us this week.  I don't know how many times the girls played with playdough this week and made sculptures.  On Thursday the girls decided to play dress up.  They wanted masks and we even made big wings out of posterboard.  I didn't get a picture of the wings but here are the girls with their masks.  Aurora did a really good job coloring her mask.  If you want to make one here is the website.  There are lots of other cool things on the site too.  Little fairies and dolls you can make and color.  The butterfly masks are at the bottom though.  After they were done they pretended for a long time that they were super secret fairy princess spies.  So cute!

 Corina had been asking to go to the beach for a while but it was to cold everytime Mark was off.  So she asked and we finally went.  I got online and looked up the best beaches in the UK and found one that about an hour and 30 min away.  It was called Holkham beach and it was right on the North Sea.  (It seems like we should have seen a Viking ship or a sea serpent there or something but we didn't)  I also read that it was the place they filmed the last scene in Shakespeare in Love where Gwyneth Paltrow is on the beach after the ship wreck.

The beach was beautiful.  It even had sand dunes that you could climb and there were people riding their horses on the beach. It was super windy that day though.  I posted a few pictures from the trip.  Down below is a smilebox I made will more picture if you want to watch that.

Here are the girls on the beach.

 Gwyneth got cold.  
 We took our stroller on the beach it was a little rough but I'm glad that we did.  Anway there are 2 konked out girls in the stroller.  

Here is the Inn that is right by the beach.  It was beautiful
