Where have my babies gone????

I'm not sure when it happened, but my little babies have gone and been replaced with these beautiful young ladies!!

Alli Jo cracks me up, literally ever single day! I almost can't wait to hear what she's going to come up with next! She is always one step ahead of Joe and I! She hears everything we say and watches everything we do, so we have to really be careful. She wants to be just like me, which is very humbling. I call her the 2nd mom of the family, b/c if I yell at Hunter several times to do something, and Hunter still just sits there...Alli Jo will walk over and tell her to do it. And I know I'm not supposed to laugh, but it's just too funny coming from a 4 year old HAHA!

Now here is my oldest beauty. She honestly doesn't even know how beautiful she really is. I don't think I've met a stranger that didn't say how pretty she is...even at work I have customers come in that see her picture and tell me how gorgeous she is. And yes, I'm her mom and think so...but it sure is nice to hear it from others! But you know what's even nicer.....to have a total stranger come up to me at my yard sale and tell me how mature and nice she was to them. Hunter had a lemonade stand set up and was selling cups. A neighbor's cat had wondered over so Hunter took it back to them. When she got back someone asked her for a glass, and she politely told them she needed to wash her hands and she'd be right back to help them =) The man came up to me and told me what a great job I had done raising her....it really made my day!!
