Hi Elk, I wonder were on earth did they find that red hair? My dad (and me as you already knew) is redheaded (accually now he's white) too and he use to say, there's no way you can make an end of this weed in our genes. About my freckles he would say: Honey those are just the rusty ends of your steel nerves. ;-) You've got great kids.

i love the earring shots! now i have to post a shot i took about a month ago. it's of my best friend wearing the earrings i gave her, and the sun is glistening through them. it turned out so neat, and i almost forgot to post it! thanks for the reminder.

as always, a creative and sweet post from you, ELK.

I better get my daughter out on the steps for a photo so that I can feel this joy years from now.

Wonderful feeling of closeness and sisterhood you've captured here.

Your girls are beautiful ELK! Good genes run in the family I see:) And you have survived the middle school years. The question is, can I?

Oh these are you precious steps to your heart of memories. They and I like how you girls look lovely and I like how you have given us a little insight to their personalities by photographing their earrings.

Relyn said...

It's bittersweet, isn't it? You have such gorgeous girls.

Mom in Jamaica said...

Ah yes we share their senior year together as they share life as friends. Funny how life brought us the extra blessings of friendship as we watched our girls take their first steps to independence in college. Life is rich Elk and nothing says it more than the two beaming back at you in the photo. We are rich together even if distance seperates us.
