Not Matching, Just Coordinated

My sister always does an amazing job coordinating her family’s outfits for group photos, but it’s usually a little harder for me – or at least it requires a lot of mental energy. Coordinating just two kids is simple, but four people is trickier. Anyway, I know some people may call this crazy, or at least over thinking, but oh well, I now feel better knowing what we’re wearing for some family photos on Sunday.SAMSUNG CAMERA PICTURES

Little Girl, Big Personality

Three years ago I was pretty excited to be having a girl since so many of my friends assured me that “girls are calmer than boys.” I love my energetic, non-stop son, but a break sounded nice. Well, three years later, I don’t think my little lady got the memo about being easier. I can only imagine what the next few decades have in store for us, but at least there will be no shortage of laughter…412b 412c

French Braid Attempt

Trying to expand my hairstyle repertoire for Amelia. This side braid looked really cute when she left for school this morning, but I’m sure it didn’t last long. Oh well, I’ll keep practicing.DSC_0034 DSC_0038

“Pinky” Becomes “Dollie”

Amelia’s favorite doll to sleep with is one she calls Dollie. She takes it to school with her almost every day to sleep with during nap time, and she insists on sleeping with it every night at home. The part that makes me smile though is the fact that “Dollie” is actually a doll I grew up with, except I called her Pinky. Here she is on my bed in one of my childhood rooms and on Amelia’s bed today. Who would have known… scan0001 DSC_0001Also, the desk in the first picture is now in my dining room. The blanket my grandmother made me is on the rocking chair in the first picture and is now draped over a different rocking chair in Amelia’s room. Oh, and I have to mention that I still remember my mom making the curtains, table cloth, and bunny pillow that are in the first picture, much like how I made Amelia’s curtains and a few of her pillows. From one generation to the next…
