we're going to need more fingers

I can't even tell you what an utterly delightful visit we've just had with mom. She is really the best human! I mean, it's not a contest or anything but if it was? She would totally win. Hands down. On her last night we had a special dinner then went around the table and did high point low point, and I was struck by the fact that every person's chosen memories were shared, we all appreciated and connected with the high or low point, and yakked about it a little bit. It was a nice dinner, and I can't wait to tell you all about it.

BUT FIRST....the obligatory.

This year's series was among our easiest yet, everyone was in a great mood after a great weekend, we were ready on time, so I sent them out to the driveway and started snapping away.

I die. I *die*. You know how much I love these photos every year, and the going backward in time photos are too awesome to even contemplate, but that second photo, where your Boy and your Girl and eyeballing eachother? Well, may I repeat? I die.

Sounds like you had a blissful time with Mom. My heart is full of love and warmth for that, sister. Can't wait for *every* dete.

Utterly love.

5th one down in this year's series is my fav! That is *so* your girl, and your boy looks so happy. Love.

Past year's photos? Ach. Adorable and incredible. Honestly, how do they grow so much in such a short period of time? They are morphing into adults before our every eyes. Incredible!

xoxo,
Beth

P.S. It was so lovely to see your contest winning mom on Monday!

So, I'm thinking next year your girl can lend her brother a thumb or pinky, but after that??? Well, they you're in trouble.

Love this year's series and love going back in time seeing how your kids shrink. I may or may not have been using the garage to measure them. :)
