Wrapping up the week

We are well into week 2 with Sam home and still enjoying every second with him! The girls are getting adjusted to life with a newborn and showering him with kisses and hugs as often as I will let them. Nothing like having 2 extra little mommies in the house!
This past week, Grandma and Grandpa came to visit so the girls got another round of spoiling! Grandpa bought the girls a Barbie fishing rod and they all tromped down to the lake in our neighborhood for a night of fishing. Before they left I lectured the girls on the art of fishing (I didn't want them to be disappointed when they didn't catch anything!)...but the fish were definitely biting and they each reeled in several fish! They were so proud of themselves! I bet those fish were humiliated being caught on a Barbie rod....I can't help but think about what the other fish said to them once they were thrown back!!
And here are a few sweet pictures of the girls at their "watch week" for their ballet/tap class. At the end of each semester the parents are allowed to come watch the class and take pictures. Of course the class was scheduled for the day we came home from the hospital. But I couldn't miss it...so we came home...threw on our leotards...put Sam back in his car seat and off we went to see our little ballerinas!

This is J doing her "teapot dance". Click here if you want to see the live version!

Perfecting her first position.
A waiting for class to begin and showing off some of her best ballet moves :) I was in tears watching her dance....it was hysterical! I've mentioned before that she runs like Phoebe from Friends...well...her dancing isn't much better...although she does get extra points for effort!

And a few more sweet pictures of Sam. He has changed so much in just a week! I'm actually a little sad that he is already a week old...I would love for time to stand still so I can thoroughly enjoy the freshness of him!
