More attempts at porch pics

Mom reporting: I thought since the first day pics didn’t go so well, I’d try again. 
8/15/13  Day 2—“No, Mom. I just want to get on the bus!”

8/22/13 Day 7 —There was some extra time before the bus came to get Braska. So they agreed to take a few shots.  Though this is what I got first….

After a few that didn’t work, we did get one a little more “classic.”
This seems to make Kinlee look taller than Braska, which she is, but not by quite this much. 

Later that day, Braska came home with different pants on.
Love when that happens… 
I though it was funny that both times she’s come home with these pants on in the past 10 days, (the pants from her “extra outfit” for school, pants with several bright colors in stripes), it just works out that the colors somehow coordinate the colors in her top.  Must be popular colors in her wardrobe.  This is great since they only change the pants, not the top (which I included in her extra outfit, of course).  I did end up changing her extra pants to jeans though when I returned her to school the next day. The thought of her walking around with these stripes on with a red shirt or something makes me cringe.  Yes, I’m that neurotic. I wouldn’t normally put these stripes with these flowers, but hey, a little wild color kind of appealed to me when I saw her got off the bus in this.  Couldn’t do it every day though.

And this is made me smile, Braska’s “being Belle” so they can “look like sisters.”


  1. I dare you to let them pick out their own outfits one of these days. You know..........let them use their imaginations. And I think they need some more fudgesicles at Aunt Karol's too.

    1. Ah, you challenge me too deeply. I've told friends just in the last couple days how I can't do the "pick your own clothes" thing. But I do let them choose from a shelf full of "school appropriate" outfits, all ready and coordinated. Does that help? They're getting to choose which one fits them for the day, right? :o)

      And they can come get dirty at your house any time you want them. They do love the dirt (and chocolate) there better than here, I believe!

  2. I love all these pictures. Such beautiful girls.


Be sure to leave a note so Mommy can read them to me each day!! (Sorry to add the moderation, but we were getting spammed!!) Thank you!
