These Girls

Next to my husband and mom, my sister probably knows me best of all.  Growing up we got in our fair share of fights (one time even involving a tube of toothpaste), and we weren't always the nicest to each other.  Being fourteen months apart brought its challenges but even more special things.  

We are each other's best friends.  We know each other better than we sometimes know ourselves.  And, while I would give anything to have her closer, I'm so thankful for facetime, and texts and well, anything that keeps us in touch!

So, when I look at these two little girls, I see my sister and me.  I pray that they become as close as Rozann and I have.  I pray they always take care of each other.  And, I pray the bond they develop now only grows stronger as the years pass.

On this particular day, they decided they wanted it to be summer...




Then, they were little clothes models, and I have a feeling Sophie can't wait to teach her to spin.  I see so much of us in them, and that makes me so excited for what their future holds!

Dance Party

Lately, Sophie has loved nothing more than putting a CD in the DVD drive, and cranking up some music to dance.  She likes it more than cartoons, more than games, more than anything!  Well, it always helps if she has her "pincess" dress on, too.  So, the other night, she wanted us all involved!  

She's always asking her daddy to "pin" her.
Carter is a bit more on the funky side.  Lately, he's been asking to watch videos of Michael Jackson when he was little.  And, he's done a few moonwalk attempts.  Verrrry entertaining.


You never know if Peter is going to watch from the sidelines or go all in.  This day, it was all in.


And, John Paul...anything that's crazy, he's on it!






Little sister even has a love for it!


There is never a dull moment, but I'm thinking I should probably be thankful for that!

Mid-week Likes and Links

One of the world's sweetest people sent me this amazing skincare package for little Henry.  I love it! And, I love even more that it is from her sister's store.
My sister sent me this water bottle!  Talk about making it fun to drink water!
Jeremy got me these new kicks.

My sweet cousins gave me this awesome camera strap!

And, I got these for when I get back into working out - haha, when is the key word.

Need a fun jumpsuit?  My sister picks out the best ones!

We bought these to make with the kids.  When they came, and boasted of 6000 tiny beads, I about died.  But, Carter and Peter LOVE them.  And, they've been pretty great for quiet time.

Henry has been living in this little zipper sleeper.

I finally got some Makeup Geek shadows from my makeup expert cousin.  They're just as great as I've heard, and at a great price, too!
Have a great Wednesday!
