We have a strange dynamic in our home right now.  With the arrival of Fig Newton from Thailand, we have a LOT of firsts that are happening.  But we are also preparing to send Key Lime Pie off to college in Colorado in 2 weeks, which means a lot of lasts are also happening.  It's bitter-sweet.

Last night Fig Newton got to go to her first LDS youth dance and Key Lime Pie attended her last one.  The theme was super heroes.  They had SOOOOO much fun!  And I love the group of kids they were with!  They are GREAT kids!  Key Lime Pie, Kotten Kandy and Fig Newton got new shirts for the occasion!  These girls really are MY superheroes!
True Superheroes!

Juice didn't want to be in a picture - but I sure love that kid!
My girls!
Then... Friday, we had a last luncheon with Key Lime Pie.  Yes, she considers us "old" ladies her BFFs too!  I love being my daughter's BFF and I love that she considers Amy her BFF too!  Blessed!
Kotten Kandy, Me, Key Lime Pie and Amy = BFFs
Key Lime Pie always says "Amy was my friend FIRST!"
Key Lime Pie also spent some time with some friends at the mall Saturday.  These silly kids are teaching Fig Newton how to be American by wearing flag sunglasses:

And Fig Newton is really getting into her school spirit!  Go Collin's Titan!

  1. You are so cute and fun! I love your posts! Miss you! I hope your bitter sweet send off doesn't depress you too much! I know it's hard to send off our babies!!

  2. Hey, are you the photographer on spot for the girls where ever they may go? Or do they take some of the pics themselves? Just wondering... Fun times for sure! Mom/Mil
