A Mirror & A Movie

last week, toby was out of town and roman had a basketball game. so, normally, i might not go so that gianna could get home and eat and be in bed on time, but we all went this time! and gianna LOVED watching them play.

look at that jump shot!

she was so cute cheering for him and then grabbed my phone and said "say cheese", so we took a momma and gianna selfie!
see her finger? that means we are your #1 fans Ro!!!
mom got gianna a full length mirror for Christmas. i mean, every girl needs one, right? well, if you know toby, you know that he all about safety. we call him captain safety. affectionately, of course. so, he really didn't want me to put this on her door, since it would be opening and closing a lot. but, the over the door mirrors aren't an option because they hang too high. and there really wasn't a better place in her room than this, at least i though so. so, i went white girl macgyver on it and it is velcro'd (can i get an amen for that 3M on-command stuff?) to the door and then duct taped around the top and bottom too. i really don't think it is going anywhere!

i didn't get a picture or video, but the first time she saw it was after her bath. she was wrapped up in a towel, whining..."i'm cold, i'm cold"... and then saw her mirror. she screamed...."my mirror!", dropped her towel and ran over to gaze at herself. i guess she wasn't that cold after all. drama queen.

the next morning, i put on a scarf, so of course, she need her "scuff" too. and then proceeded to stare at herself in the mirror.

on friday night, some of the colellas came over and the kids played so good together. roman and chase are like brothers, playing nicely, then fighting and back and forth. gage is so good. quiet as a mouse, he will play by himself for hours. i put gianna to bed and the boys were so loud, but she never made a peep. they had worn her out!


gage was peeking in the candy jar, digging for something sweet!

i mean, this face...really? chase is such a little cutie pie!

i could tell roman was tired. he ended up on the couch playing on his iPad.

on saturday, it was rainy all day. so, after the kids naps, we decided to go see the movie Frozen. it was gianna's first time in a movie theatre and i was totally prepared to take her out if need be. but she did great! she was antsy...my lap, her seat, my lap, her seat etc...but she did great, otherwise. she really enjoyed her twizzlers. and of course, roman was perfect. give that boy some popcorn and he is happy happy happy! in fact, just a few days before we went to the movies, he told me that his favorite part of going to the movies is the popcorn!
