And I know that the next time I blink, they will be beautiful young women, grown and starting out in life on their own. But, for today, they are 4 and I will try to soak in every minute of this time.
Their many giggles and big grins
Their goofiness and fun loving nature
Their love to sing, and dance, and read books, and learn new things
Their sweet natures expressed COMPLETELY differently one from the other
Their love of the outdoors and all things active from the trampoline, to roller blading, to wrestling with Dad and their brothers
Their friendship with each other
These two are one tight pair, yet so uniquely different. One is so feminine, sweet and sappy, loves to hug everyone, loves all things girly, is a social butterfly, tender through and through, but full of strong will when she wants to be, loves to talk about God. The other shows her love through teasing and giving you a punch on the arm, she sings constantly, laughs often about everything, loves to talk about God, is a little more reserved when it comes to others but once she warms up will be your best friend, surprises you with random hugs, is independent and can do anything she sets her mind to.
They are each a gift to our family and how appropriate that today on the day of thanks, we get to remember and be thankful for when they were graciously given to us as a part of our family.
