Skiing at Copper

We took our girls skiing at Copper Mountain. They had a great time. We had taken Cayleigh last year with her cousins and she loved it. Keira was a bit scared of slipping at first, but after her Daddy got her going well a few times, she loved skiing too.

Here is a photo of us with our good friends who went with us to Copper. They were kind enough to hang out with our girls for a few hours so that we could do some snowboarding. We had lots of fun and thoroughly tired ourselves out!

I think Keira's favorite part was riding on the chair lift and the magic carpet. She was so pleased with herself because she could get on the carpet all by herself.

Bye-Bye Binkie

Keira finally gave up her binkie. Actually, we couldn't find it one night so she just didn't get to have it anymore. I'm really glad that she stopped asking for it in less than one week. After 4 1/2 years of searching for binkies, I was ready to be done with that stage.

Boo-Boo Blues

Cayleigh was fooling around on Tuesday night when she was supposed to be going to sleep and ended up hitting her head on her baby doll crib. It was a little bit scary because I really do not like blood, but we decided that she didn't need stitches.

I Want to Go Home!

Whenever Keira gets upset, sad, or tired she whines, "I want to go home." It's so funny to hear her say that particularly when we are home. I think she came up with this because we are often out in the evenings around her bedtime, and when she starts to get grumpy, I ask her if she wants to go home.

Cayleigh said something the other day that made me cringe. The girls don't watch television very much, but we do occasionally let them watch a few cartoons on Saturday mornings. On one such morning Cayleigh said to me in a forlorn voice, "Mommy, we have to get one before they're all gone." The greediness of America is being instilled in my girls through the commercials on Saturday mornings! (I'm really not surprised, just saddened.) Cayleigh had seen a commercial for a Disney movie that is only available for purchase through a certain date. I couldn't believe how much impact this short commercial spot had had on her. She was genuinely upset that she might not be able to get her copy of the movie. Uggh!! I guess we'll try to stick to the DVD's that we have.

By the way, I am not a big fan of Disney, but I do really like their new show, Little Einsteins. The girls were given a DVD for Christmas from their uncle. It is a good show where they move a little, think a little, and enjoy learning about our world through art and music. I would much rather hear my girls humming classical music than singing the lyrics to some of the Disney princess songs.
