|Daddy was being so mean...making her get wet...|

|It was all she would play with.|
|For 30 minutes at a time she'd sit fiddle with it until she got it to nest in the next size bigger.|
|When she'd felt that she'd mastered the puzzle, she'd find something else to do...but bring the block with her.|
|And randomly stop to admire it.|
|She sounded like a pirate with a peg-leg crawling with that thing in her hand.|
|She one-handed-played for a good two days.|

Amanda is turning 19. She really has blossomed into womanhood this past year. She moved in next door this month and Sam is asking every 30 minutes in the evenings, "Can I go see if Amanda is home yet?" We are enjoying the current living situation as much as possible right now as her next move will probably be when she has a different last name... Which everyone is guessing will happen here in a year or so.
Anyway there are a lot of possibilities in her future at the moment and the suspense kind of gets to her at times. She's got an AMAZING faith and her relationship with Christ is one that I can only hope to have someday in the distant future. That being said she is also very eclectic and hard to shop for... And it doesn't help that her love language is (thoughtful) gifts. This means a gift card just doesn't cut it. I came up with a vague idea in my head and scored all the pieces on clearance at hobby lobby. Can you decifer the message?

|I love toting around a full van.|
|Occasionally we shake things up a bit and other friends play too.|
|Jeremy always will call and ask how the "daycare" is going that day and who all I have at the house at that moment.|
I've been told a few times that I should open a daycare.
And every summer I ponder it.*
*make lists of pros and cons, create spreadsheets of costs and financial viability, consider every angle from having more kids, the size of vehicles, if I'd only take part-time, full-time, teacher's kids, etc...

|I gotta work on Charlotte sitting like a lady with her skirt on...|
|They always have to inspect each other. |
11 months and 9 months
|These two beauties has a "Princess for a Day"|
|Both are so amazingly gorgeous for completely different reasons. |
Their beauty just takes my breath away.

One of the things Laura and her sisters play with is paper dolls. One day Sam came running to show me the clothes she'd made for her doll:
|Note the vacuum and the swimming pool.|

|She's checking to make sure I didn't miss a single crumb/onion skin/speck of dirt on the floor.|
|Remember grass being Sam's kryptonite? |
Yeah, Charlotte doesn't even notice.
Especially when my coffee cup is just sitting there, alone and unattended...
