Here's just a couple cute photos we have of the older girls:
These are of the girls reading scriptures together. After the first one, I had several on the camera of them smiling; but as is the nature of photographing kids, one would have a great smile and the other would be blurred out or not paying attention. So thanks to photo editing, I just took the best smile from each, and put them together into one photo. I thought it made a great photo. (just ignore the line down the middle of the room where the floor and china cabinet don't quite match up.)
And here's the girls getting their hair curled. Unfortunately, I do not have a picture of the results, but they were adorable with and without the curlers. Banana Girl looked just like Shirley Temple.

8/13/11 M: Mom, remember that one time, when I was 4 years old, that I was obedient the WHOLE DAY! _______________________________________ 1/19/11 While watching our shadows stretch out in the setting sun:
M: Wow, I'm huge! I'm as big as you now! Like 101! ____________________________________________ 10/24/10
Princess M had just finished watching a movie when the following converstaion took place:
Mom: M, so what movie did you watch?
M: Monsters vs Aliens.
Dad: Who won this time?
Dad: Well, when are the Aliens going to win?
M: Never, the monsters always win.
Mom: That doesn't seem fair.
Dad: Yeah, the monsters should learn to share and let the Aliens win now and then...
Dad: Would you like playing a game with someone who never lets you win...
Dad: Shouldn't the Aliens get a chance to win and destroy the world sometime?
M: DAD! But then it would be PG13!
1/24/10 (on the subject of what she learned in her primary class)
M: "About how we need to follow in his (Jesus') footsteps and he lives up in the clouds, only we don't know which cloud he's on. And you need to watch out for the aliens up in the clouds too, you know, like in Chicken Little, because they're flying up there, watching us, and they could come jump down on us. They want us to follow them, but we want to follow Jesus..."

M: (Bursting into tears) "But I want to live with you FOREVER!"
_________________________________________ 2/13/09 - We were weighing ourselves on the bathroom scale.
Mom: "Wow, M! You're getting so big! Pretty soon you'll be as big as Mommy."
M: "Yeah! And pretty soon you'll be as big as Daddy!"
