Annabeth

Annabeth... I call her Annabethy. In my opinion as an Aunt, she is growing up way too fast!  This girl is a perfect swirl of her two grandmommas on both sides of the family in looks and personality. She is as fiery and opinionated as they come. She is creative, artistic, playful, strong, a fast runner and a trickster. She is introverted and speaks quietly but there is nothing quiet about her. She is a powerful force with a big heart. 

I'm so glad that I was able to grab this moment in time because all 3 sisters shared a room. Now Annabethy has her own room. I shared a room with my sister Elizabeth...It was a happy day for her when she got her own room, but a sad day for me. I loved pretending to be aerobic instructors late at night while we were suppose to be sleeping. She was not a fan of all my chatter and how messy I was. I think Annabethy feels the same about having her own room...less chatter, less mess, her space...an introverts dream, right?

Maggie

Meet Maggie or Mags as I like to call her.  As I was taking photos of their spaces she asked if she could be last. She needed to get her space cleaned up and organized. Mags is inquisitive. If curiosity killed the cat this cat would be in trouble. I remember having a 15 minute phone conversation on why I was going to Chipotle instead of making tacos myself.  She is an incredible story teller. She makes up these stories about my dog, Helen (RIP sweet girl) and my cat Ernest. The stories are hilarious and can go on for hours if you give her the time.   She is this fun combo of silly, hilarious, fun loving girl with an importance on order and safety.  Mags is looking out for everyone's safety. All who she loves should be in safe keeping. She does not like lightening storms and whenever we are all at the beach together she updates me everyday on the weather letting me know if there might be a chance of thunder or lightening storm.  Family is super important to this girl, she loves animals but not bugs and she likes painting nails.  One of my favorite things to do with Mags is watch funny/cute youtube videos of animals.

The next two pictures are Mags acting out what the Librarian at school looks like when her and her friend are being too loud. I had cramps in my side from laughing so hard.
