Lately the girls like to do EVERYTHING that I do. Cook, wash dishes, fold laundry, and their latest....Do makeup. Typically in the mornings, the girls get up while I'm still in the process of getting ready for work. Every morning is the same. It's actually makes me smile. Terry gets the girls up and dressed. I can hear them in their room. Terry tries to get them to go downstairs for breakfast. One of them will say...."we go see mommy". They come into the bathroom and everyday Addison walks in and says the same thing.... "watcha doooin Mommy? You do make up yet? I do make up too!" I started letting them play with my make up brushes to buy a little time. Letting them hang in the bathroom with me gives Terry a chance to make a pot of coffee and to get the girls breakfast ready. It's one of my favorite parts of the day. This morning I tried to capture them "doing make up" on my phone. Alexis apparently wasn't awake enough to have her photo taken, but Addison was all about it. She said she was closing her eyes like I do when I put my powder on. It truly amazes me how they notice every little detail.

I just got this picture via text message on my phone. While I'm fortunate that I have a job, I hate missing out on all the fun stuff my family does without me. This morning it was creating their first snowman.
Not the best quality picture but it was enough to bring a huge smile to my face. Terry said he took much better pictures with the real camera. Stay tuned....I will post them soon!
Happy Valentine's Day!

Terry and I keep asking each other questions lately that all seem to start with the same thing....
"When did they.....".
For example, when did they become so independent, when did they get that attitude, when did they learn that? I could keep going. With every "when did they" question we ask, we thank God that our little kiddos are thriving and doing well. It's hard to believe that my tiny little babies are almost three.
Our most recent question....
When did these little girls who used to share a swing get so big???
