Disney on Ice!

Chris got tickets to see Disney on Ice at the Verizon Center in DC on Valentine's Day. (Thank you, Lockheed Martin!) They set us up in a suite, which had its own kitchen and bathroom. We had a great view from our plush seats. There were only three families in the suite: us Killion's, the Clark's, and another family. The girls are still talking about how much they loved it. We saw snippets of The Lion King, Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan, Snow White, Aladdin, The Little Mermaid, Tangled, The Princess and the Frog, (didn't get any pictures) and a big finale of all the princesses and their princes. Donald, Goofy, Mickey, and Minnie narrated the show. It was a terrific experience! Here are some other pictures from our week:

Bring on February!

What a fun week we've had! The Disney Store visited us this week. Lizzie got the peas in a pod from Toy Story 3 and Cate picked Pascal from Tangled. They love them!
Since the beginning of the year, Cate has been waking up once or twice during the night and coming to our room to climb into our bed. At first, I was very good about bringing her back to her bed but then I got lazy ;) So, to get Cate to stay in her bed, we made a sticker chart. (Lizzie wanted to be a part of it too, even though she has no trouble staying in her bed.) We decided if the girls filled their chart for two weeks in a row, they would get a surprise...Chris suggested a trip to Chuck E. Cheese. You better believe the girls were adamant about fulfilling this goal. And they did! We drove up to Frederick last Saturday for the morning of fun. Cate proudly held onto her little cup of tokens the entire time we were there. It was so cute!
Next basketball player in the making...
Check out this ride: the JETT Rider. We thought it was pretty cool!
Nice photobomb, Dad ;)
This week, through work, Chris got tickets to see Disney on Ice at the Verizon Center, on Valentine's Day! So Chris will be taking his girls on a fun date. This was the girls' reaction when I told them the next morning--They are beyond excited.
Twice this week we had our friend Mia over our house. We had so much fun! On Friday we made valentines and played with lalaloopsies.
Today we went downtown to the National Postal Museum. They were holding a Valentine's Day card workshop, free of charge.
Guess who fell asleep on our way down? ;)
Lizzie had a great time making valentines for her friends. Hey, I did too!
Cate the Patriot did wake up when we were checking out the gift shop.
On such a clear and sunny day, Union Station was beautiful.
Hope you've had a great week!
