Me: "I don't know, you're there I guess. And I love your head feather there."
Me: "What are you doing"
Alida: "I'm making a Pete the Cat book."
Elaine: "Take my picture mommy!"
And as I had lunch at school with the ladies the other day, one of the subs stopped by and remarked as if she was just putting it together.
"Oh, they're twins!"
"You're their mommy."
"I have substituted in both of their classes. Your girls couldn't be more different, but they're both so wonderful."

Columbus Day, we decided to get out of the house.
But, not after sleeping in a little while, Atlanta is only two hours away anyway!
So we took off kind of late.
Then the car battery died on our way out of town.
No bother, we're so close.
Well, and then we remembered the time zone changes in that small two hours, so it was really three hours plus the extra car battery hour.

We recently had a butterfly kit around for the ladies. From creepy, crawly caterpillars to butterflies that you finally set free.
So much fun to watch the girls letting them go.
And then there was the random cricket that Patric had thrown in there for fun.

There is something amazingly powerful looking about that girl in that instant, while she, Cleopatra, moves to strike her friend with an dark curse ala Once Upon A Time (a new fan favorite at our house on Netflix). And get thee to piano lessons soon I think, with those long fingers.
Gone are these days in the link below I guess, which are cuter now after a bit of hindsight:

Saturday morning breaks, and I awake to someone tickling my feet, another sitting in the doorway. It's 7:30 a.m., and they have waited long enough, according to them.
"Mom, we need to go buy some boots."
Off we go to buy some boots. As we leave the store, after some severe eye rolling at the pink boots for one and the fuzzy gold sparkle boots for the other and a serious attempt to convince at least one to fall in love with the black elf-ish zip-up boots, they start asking for candy, which gets a 'no' at this point.
"Mom, you never let us have anything! Can I wear my boots now?"
