Just in Case You Were Wondering...

1.  Giant cardboard flowers are fabulous for hiding your belly in pictures (and look cute too)!   I think I'm going to start carrying one with me in my purse.

2.  Learning about the Civil War can actually be really fun.  We went to a Civil War day at a nearby historic farm and had a fabulous time.  Ellie, in particular, was so excited that she dressed the part and was thrilled when the organizers invited her back to be a volunteer next year.  My favorite part was seeing a real cotton plant ( was really cool).  

3.  Matching clothes are cute even when you're a teenager.  Well past the age of being able to pick out my kids' clothes, the other day my girls made me smile when they intentionally dressed to match each other...

It made me think back to the day, that doesn't seem all that long ago, when they looked like this...

4.  I miss those days.     ↑  ↑  ↑  ↑  ↑  ↑  ↑  ↑

Wow! Looking at that 4th pic (which couldn't have been more than 6-7 years ago) makes it obvious just how fast time flies! It seems like only yesterday that they were only babies.

Tell Ellie that she is a really cute little civil war girl.

Thanks for sharing!

You could just add that cardboard flower to your Mary Poppins bag :)

Ellie is adorable in her costume!

How cute that Emma and Cami were twins for the day :)

Ohhh... look how young and adorable they all were in that picture!
