I simply love them.
I have SO many memories with them...and most of them when they were super little. The bummer to being a bit further away. But one memory in particular, dancing to Shakira while holding Lanie who was probably about 18 months at the time. I might have gone a bit crazy dancing around the house...but she had the sweetest laugh. I still remember Kate's face (my sister and Lanie's mom)...not sure if she should stop me or just go with it.
With Josie, having her WANT me to do her hair. Oh yes, this might have happened. I would put only about 500 million little butterfly clips while she just sat there watching me and thinking I'm just the coolest. Fast forward to now...she is ALMOST 15...and I'm thinking...where did all the time go. Anyway, she happens to be AMAZING at doing hair and I kind of wish I asked her to do mine...
Both of these girls...family. Happiness. Silly. Beautiful. Kind. Crazy. Funny. Sweet. Just a few words to describe a bit of their personalities. Like I said, L.O.V.E. them. I really just enjoy hanging out with them. Whether its going to one of Josie's soccer games, hearing about their school activities or watching them interact with my babies (ps. they just might be the most AMAZING teenager baby sitter's I've ever seen).
These photos...they make me smile...for a couple of reasons. The first one, well, its snowing outside and these pictures just make me think of sunshine so...yes, bring on the smiles. And number two, alone time with my nieces...my crazy super cool nieces. And that to me is priceless...Enjoy some of our pics from that afternoon.
