Spilled Beans

We are on our own this week.  Daddy is off to Washington D.C. and while he was dreading leaving, I would have gladly traded spots with him.  I have this great desire to go somewhere -- alone -- where I am responsible for no one and the only thing I would do is sit and listen to silence. 

Bobo is coming for a brief stay while Daddy is gone.  Yesterday as Daddy said good-bye to the girls and told them it would be a few days before he saw them again Sophia told him -- without a drip of sadness about his departure -- "That's ok.  Bobo is coming!"

Saturday Sophia had her mid-winter in studio ballet performance.  I'm not sure if she likes the performing part or the excuse to wear red lipstick part...but here's a couple pics.

Today Ella came to me and announced, 
"For the first time in my life, things are beginning to go wrong."

I believe that is a line-gone-wrong from the Aladdin movie.  She was smiling while she said it. 

The twins and daddy headed off to the ISU vs Gophers gymnastics meet this past wknd.  Andi was a bit pissed at being left behind and so she spilled the beans when I wasn't watching. When I asked, "What happened?"

she answered,

"I don't know.  Ella did it."
