girls' nights

When I was a kid my parents established "our nights" It was pretty essential in our household because my parents had four kids in five years. We didn't get much one-on-one time with our folks. Our nights were when each of us had our own night of the week  to stay up an extra half hour and do whatever we wanted with just our parents. Since our girls are twins and as a result; the same age, practically on the same exact schedule, and are involved in the same things it is really hard to get some one-on-one time with them. So finally Tony and I started "our nights" with the girls. Lola's night is Tuesday and Ellie's night in Wednesday. We have done these night for about a month now and it has been pretty cool to see what the girls pick to do with us. 
Tuesdays with Lola are great. I love how outspoken Lola is when Ellie is not by her side. She just keeps on talking and talking. The first night she wanted to play puzzles and Legos. Another night she wanted to make bead bracelets and play some board games. Love our time with her! 

Ellie's nights are Wednesday. She loves the one-on-one time and we love hanging our with just her. She is so funny and even funnier when her sister isn't right by her side. The first night Ellie wanted to play games and legos. Another night Ellie wanted to play babies, photographer, and Chutes and Ladders with us. 

I love how after spinning for daddy multiple times, Ellie figures out that she would help daddy spin on his own. Ellie and her always thinking mind! Love her.
