Here is a close-up of the new (left side, fully stuffed) vs. old (no stuffing left inside, tattered and worn):
After naptime we went to Snip Its and Peyton felt a void with Miss Alea no longer there. I must admit Miss Tasha did a great job though:
Miss Tasha even snipped Taylor's "mullet". For some reason both Peyton and Taylor grow mullets! Neither of the girls seem to have hair grow as quickly on the top and sides of their head...resulting in a "mullet look". Today Tasha snipped over 2 inches of "mullet growth" off Taylor's neck. Daddy says "she looks like a boy" but Mommy says "I'd rather put a bow in her boy hair than have people think we are rednecks". . .
Sandy did not get a haircut so Daddy admired her hairdo tonight:
Here is a video of Taylor prancing around in her cousin Colleen's "Squeaker Sneakers" sporting her mullet-free 'do:

Peyton took her pillow out of her pillowcase the other day and used the case as a sack, she hopped along similar to a potato sack racer. I must say she has an interesting way to beat out the competition- while the others are actually HOPPING, Peyton is walking with tiny strides within her sack! Tonight at Schnucks I came across a set of sacks and purchased them in an effort to preserve Peyton's pillowcases! Taylor wanted the yellow one and PEW got the red one.
Needless to say she was very social with the other puppies and quite alert but . . .
. . . by the end of class she was a bit exhausted:
After coming home and seeing her two best buddies, she returned to her energetic self. Here is a shot Daddy took of his "4 gals" moments ago:
As the picture shows, we are still on lock-down mode (girls in their PJs at 2p.m.) trying to get everyone TRULY HEALTHY around here.

Perhaps I shall post "TAKE TWO" of Peyton's progression with her song "Jeepers Creepers" so stay tuned for upcoming video footage :-)

. . . and even got her to read Cinderella:
Taylor cheered up once she got some one-on-one time with Sandy:
Peyton is working on a new (but actually quite old) tune "Jeepers Creepers". . . here is "TAKE ONE"

Taylor and Miss Moshi looked at PEW with curiosity . . .
Here is the "color discussion" of the M&Ms:
Notice how when Peyton accidentally calls "RED" orange, she simply takes a drink and acts like nobody noticed:
Meanwhile, upstairs Sandy continues to be spoiled with love, affection, plenty of chew toys and this brand new bed:
...she is a ham with the camera:

...and Postal Worker Pepper":
Okay, this one I call "Supermodel". Although she is not in official "dress up clothing" Taylor is enjoying the mirror like a beauty queen:
Peyton is preparing to BLAST OFF as she dazes off into space during this pose:

Around 10:30, we met up with Susie and Jessica at the Magic House for a Members' Valentine gathering. Taylor loved every activity she discovered today. . .she began as a truck drver and evolved into a waterplay expert, waitress, sand sculptress, and dancer.
The event included delicious doughnuts and milk. Jessica posed proudly for the camera as Peyton began to devour her doughnut:
Here is a glimpse of the sisters enjoying the waterplay area. When I finally got Taylor to refrain from DRINKING the water, she was truly able to "PLAY" with everything!
As sson as Daddy got home from work we departed for our special Valentines outing to Chuck E. Cheese. For the first time in a long while, Miss Peyton was not intimidated by Chuck E. Cheese. She not only posed willingly, she also gave him a high-five! Oh...and for the first time ever, Taylor WAS intimidated by the guy. I guess it will be a few months before I will capture a photo of both daughters with Chuck E!
Do you like Peyton's driving abilities?
How about the girls' dance moves? Any potential?

Peyton helped Danielle & Rebecca with some last minute cake decoration enhancements:
Auntie Karen hooked Taylor up with a counter baby seat. When Peyton saw her sister getting the royal treatment, she insisted that she needed to sit in the counter seat. Since PEW exceeds the weight limit, we compromised and pulled a counter stool up next to Taylor's seat :-)
Uncle Craig wondered what Peyton was thinking as she dazed off prior to singing "Happy Birthday"...$10 says she was contemplating how long she must wait until her birthday reoccurs :
Here are the Wu gals in the bouncer blowing off some energy:

Loren rested peacefully through the older cousins' chaos:
Aunt Bea met us in Odessa to meet and greet the girls and our new puppy:
Taylor's new hobby is taking off her shoes and socks during the roadtrip. Sandy (pardon her weird looking eyes in this pic) stole Peyton's carseat while Peyton was conquering potty training halfway down I-70:
Here's Daddy and his Valentine/Birthday/Easter/Father's Day gift- all rolled in to one ball of love:

Poor Taylor was half asleep when we finally got to the polling place at 1p.m.
Peyton was well atuned as to what our purpose was today. However, she could not understand why her candidate was not there to greet us.

The girls are all set for the Primary tomorrow. We love "Underdogs" so Mitt is our man:

Look at my second-born, sporting her Arizona Cardinals pride:
Auntie Al enjoyed cuddle time with Disney (Miss Holly's new lab):
Touchas helped Taylor get to the chips and dip:
Here are some Kappa gals:
The 2007 "New Couple of the Year" remains a darling couple:
Julia and Peyton opted to watch a Wiggles DVD during the postgame show:
