All the girls!

My best friend has two girls, Rory(in orange), who will be
3 in August and Soren(in stripes) who just turned 1.

The conversations these four children have are hilarious! Westin is a little mom to Soren. It is a riot. In this picture Westin was a little upset that she had to go to bed when "the girls" were still at our house.

And no, that hand is not growing out of nowhere, Holle is holding Soren, but knew this picture was going on the blog and she's a chicken, so she would rather appear grossly deformed than voluntarily have her picture taken.

So, we're on our 4 hour drive to our cousins on Friday, my mom forgets her purse at the last restaurant we ate at. Westin has a serious problem with this. She is reprimanding "Grandma Connie" in the sternest voice a 4 yr. old can muster. I hear things about how it is her job to remind grandma to take things and various overly dramatic statements, then with a completely straight face, and no humorous inflection in her voice at all Westin says to "grandma Connie..."Now, are you picking up what I'm laying down?" Someone tell me, what do you say to that????
(tears of laughter are all she got from me)

Happy Alayna

I just love this picture of Alayna. She loves being out at my best friends parents' farm.

She looks so content and check out those fingernails, a country girl through & through...

Harley mama

This is Westin's version of dressing up. Something about it just screams Biker Babe.

She is just proud as can be though!

I promised a picture of the results of the braids. Here it is. They think it's the coolest thing in the world. Funny.

I love my sister!

I love my Sister!

Tonight we did the age-old, take a bath, throw on your pajamas lightning fast, so mom can braid your still soaking wet hair so it can be "crimped" for school tomorrow! (anyone who is a girl or has girls is familiar with this routine) I will take a picture of the finished product tomorrow.

A little snippet of the information I got from Westin yesterday... "I'm sure that I will have boys around me all the time in a little while because I'll be so cute." I asked her if she meant when she was older? she said "yeah, when I'm 5." Dear Lord Almighty. Self-esteem is NOT AN ISSUE with her!! I'm curious to hear her version of what people think of her hair. She is one funny kid.

Alayna found her talent today! She told me as soon as she got in the car, that she apparently (her word) is an excellent drawer of dolphins. and "the funny thing is I didn't even know I knew how to draw dolphins" When Westin got in the car they had a very in-depth discussion about talents and Alayna said some people never find their talents and she "just felt so lucky to have found hers so early." The stuff you hear in kids' conversations if you pay attention is Great!

Have a good day everyone. Braid results tomorrow....

Their shining moment......

These are some pictures from a wedding we all were in on New Years Eve. A good frieand of ours got married, and the wedding was gorgeous! Westin was a flower girl (one of 3) and Alayna was the bell-ringer. She walked in right in front of Sukey (the bride) and rang a crystal bell. She did so good. Her cheeks didn't even turn red. Westin danced it up at the reception, Alayna did too, but she is a little lower key than Wes. Both had a blast.

I'm trying my hand at this blogging thing....we'll see.

Today we were a bunch of busy bunnies. The girls were in a fashion show this morning which the did marvelously!!! Look out Cindy Crawford! Then we went to Mom's /Grandma Connie/s and spent the day playing with the dogs (the girls) and baking a pie (me). We then grilled out at Josh's. A good time was had by all. (Except Mike, he had to work all day. Yuck!)

Signing off on another good day.....sara
