Things were relatively calm in our neck of the woods these days.
I still wasn’t pregnant so I was taking some time to improve my skills. Liv was becoming a master in painting and I thought I should reconnect with my passion. I painted all the time as a kid and I thought getting back into it would help lift my spirit.
Liv painted this lovely portrait of urinals. I was at least painting Garrett!
The girls were getting older. Their birthdays were only a week away.
Their differences were becoming ever more obvious. Liv preferred her dolls and artwork over everything.
Penny was more focused on her logic and athletic skills. She wants to go to Medical school one day. I bet she can do anything!
They both love the sandbox…for different reasons. Liv loves to build huge castles. Penny loves to destroy them. Ah well, such is life with twins.
Garrett and I decided to sit them down and discuss their party ideas.
Liv wanted something artsy. Penny wanted anything that was not babyish. They did not agree on a single idea.
“Girls! If you cannot pick a party theme I will do it for you!”
“Ok, you pick it, Mommy. It’s just easier.”
“Mom, pick something artsy for Liv. Okay?”
Deep down Penny loves her sister…even if she does insist on terrorizing her.
I sent them off to work on their skills and homework. I had a lot of planning to do!
I started making calls. We had one week to throw these sweet girls a party and I wasn’t going to let them down!
