The LadyBug's Christmas List

I have tried several times on several devices to get this page to show up and I can't make it happen.  I am putting it in a post.     Clothes: She is currently wearing a 7-8 in a shirt and a 7-8 in bottoms. If an outfit comes in a set then I usually just get the 8.  If it is a dress, 7. Old Navy L in tops/dresses and a 7 in pants. She WILL WEAR JEANS success!!! Shoes size 13, she has snow boots, tennis shoes, she wants a pair of knee high boots.   Some Ideas If you click on the link it will take you to a place to be able to purchase the item.
The girls have a TON of things.  A suggestion might be to get them an "experience" in the form of a gift certificate to the museum or the zoo.    
The Denver Museum of Nature and Science has classes that The Bug is interested in attending and would add to her learning. We are already members of the museum and frequent the discovery zone (great area for both of the girls), space, human body, and of course the rotating exhibits.
The Denver Zoo also has classes and The Bug has moved up to the next group of classes so she will be attending some this year.  We all know she has a love of animals.  
Chinese Checkers  Legos, she is into Legos, can't get enough of them.  Just a box of the basic legos will make her happy.  The Bug is very much into creating her own masterpieces. A Lego Idea book could be a good idea.    BOOKS - we have a love hate relationship with books.  The Bug loves them and I hate that she doesn't take care of her responsibilites because she is too busy reading.  However, I have a really hard time telling her no when it comes to books.  We are usually at the library a couple of times a month, but sometimes it is just fun to have your own to read and reread. Currently she is working her way through the Harry Potter Series (she is on book 3).  She owns and has read the Magic Treehouse series.  The Wayside series could be a fun set. As tempting as it might be we already have ALL of the Ladybug Girl books (and a few duplicates).

Apparently I am raising a pride of lions.  I was trying to get stuff together to walk out the door today and this is what I turned around to...The two girls pretending to eat meat off the floor while making growling noises. I LIVE IN A ZOO

Monkeying Around at the Zoo

Because every 18month old LOVES to hang and lift her legs over and over and over again!   It was a beautiful day at the zoo!

Snow Day!

Today was our First Snow Day (techincally it was the second snow, but The Bean was sick the first go around).  The girls couldn't wait to get out in it.  Some didn't even put on more than boots before heading out!

Hanging Out with a Friend

Today we got to spend the day with one of our neighborhood friends!  Her mom was having surgery so she came and spent the day with us. Little Miss E kept us busy and we kept her busy.  She had so much fun that she told her mom that she wanted to come to our house every day!!
