Izabella and Monique were so excited for their school Valentine's day parties. They wanted to dress in red and pink, and be so cute. Izabella had heart leggings, a heart shirt, and a skirt with heart pockets! Monique had her red sweater and red tights with her black "Santa" boots. Olivia didn't want to be left out of the picture taking, so we had to take some pictures of her too!
I love it when the girls play so well together. Olivia just wants to be with her sisters, so she relishes any time with them. I don't know what they were watching...but they are content. Ah the peace that comes with content children!
I promise I have given my children beds. You can come check! They insist on sleeping in strange places. Imagine opening your linen closet and finding 3 girls! Could be exciting. Actually, they were trying to avoid going to their real beds.
On November 17, 1998, it was just the two of us with all our hopes and dreams...Now it's been more than ten years. It's crazy how fast time has flown. I think everything we had planned on our wedding day, we've thrown out the window, and started all over - a few times. We have had our ups and downs, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Besides, how boring would life be without a little trouble here and there?!

Still willing to stand next to eachother after all these years
Our first little girl is not so little anymore. She loves Hannah Montana and the Jonas Brothers. She is a lover of animals, and must have at least 100 stuffed ones. Her favorite is her cheetah, "Spot." She is a fantastic big sister, and is great at coming up with fun games for the little girls to play. Full of spunk and fun....she is priceless.
She sings, she dances, she changes her clothes 20 times per day! What an energetic child. She has more energy than we know what to do with. Every time her mood changes, she is changing her clothes. Every morning, the "Sounds of Monique" can be heard coming from her bedroom. She loves princesses (Cinderella and Giselle are her favorite) and ballerinas. Full of life, full of fun, she keeps us on our toes.
Cutness all around! She is so cuddly and snuggly. She loves her sisters, and wants to do everything they do. She really is "mini me" to them. With a smile for everyone (except her nursery leaders) and very wet kisses, she brings a laugh to all she encounters. If she's not teasing her sisters and laughing her guts out, she's dancing to any beat she can find. Easy going, happy, and entertaining!
