Well, what can we say - it's been an event filled day today for the Gibbs Girls! All started with church - which ofcourse we were running abit behind but, made it just in time! whew! After a quick lunch and nap the girls and I went to our neighbors backyard to hang out. They have a great swing set/jungle gym to play on. The all had a great time going down the slide and playing in their sandbox too. Which all lead to some great bug searching which started out with finding 2 ladybugs and put them in the bug catcher. Quickly was follwed by some "rolly pollies" and then finally some worms! I love that my girls can be the "girliest" of girls dressing up like their favorite princess with gowns and glass slippers one day and hunting for worms then next! They are definately going to be well-rounded girls! :) It was a great way to start out the week!
Sam said that they were "squishy" she really liked them!

It's been a great "girls weekend" here but, boy am I wiped out! Neal has been in Amarillo this weekend picking up his Grandparents player piano - we will now have 2 pianos...till I can sell one on Craigs List that is. The girls and I had fun on Friday night playing at their favorite park and came home to hang out on the couch and watched Mary Popins (their new favorite movie). Sydney says that Mary Popins is beautiful and she thinks her singing is too! I love hearing them sing "just a tea spoon of sugar..." and "supercalafragilisticexpaladoicous" they love it! Aunt Jill came over this morning to have breakfast and then we all went to the mall for a while for some shopping and had lunch together. Sydney had to learn a tough lesson today, one about keeping track of your "stuff". She decided to bring a little toy with her to the mall and kept it in the pocket of her dress...that is until she realized that it was missing. We backtracked our steps to mulitple stores and the table where we ate - no toy. Even when we went into a store for the 1st time today she asked me to find out if her toy had been turned in there. I really felt bad for her but, everyone has to learn at some point to watch your stuff or it will get lost. She did handle it pretty well - no tears or yelling. Whew! After a late (and short) nap we went over to our friend's house for their son's 1st B-day party. Happy b-day Jacob - we had a great time. Then it was time to decorate our house for Easter! The girls love to help me get everything unwrapped and pick a place for them to go. Grandma & Grandpa Johnson bought this really neat bunny rabbit for the girls last year and we only bring him out around Easter time - you'll have to listen to the video below. It's great!

Last night while trying to get Sydney to go to sleep she had this response for me: "but, mommy, my eyes aren't telling me to go to sleep yet!" It was so funny!
Today I had the realization that my little girl is growing up...I had to schedule Sydney's kindergarten round up and registration for this next fall! I can't believe that she will soon be 5 years old and starting school. That doesn't seem possible when I think about it. Life has not been the same since the day she was born and the changes have only begun. Love you Sydney and I'm so proud of the little girl that you've become already. Love, Mommy
