Missing Out :(

Well, I am stuck here again with sick kiddos. The weather has been so great and we haven't enjoyed it beyond the fresh air coming in the windows. Hopefully this weather will stay around!

I have missed out on SO MUCH since the girls are sick. Since Jason works so far from home getting out in the evenings isn't really an option by the time he gets home. I have yet to experience the greatness of our NEW TARGET! I was so pumped up to go too!

I have also seriously missed out on the cuteness of this little guy. Don't you just want to kiss his little cheeks?

Tomorrow is also a big day in Jason's family! Tomorrow is SuSu's Brithday! Happy Birthday SuSu. We love you! Jason is with his parents in Jonesboro for our niece to be born. I mentioned before that my sister in law was going in last Tuesday but they postponed everything until tomorrow. So Happy Birthday to Lillian Blessing West as well! We are sad to not be there but think your mom will appreciate our germs being very far away. :) I will post pictures as soon as Jason sends them.

This pic was from Jason's 30th birthday dinner with his family. Riley loves that hat because she feels it makes her look more like Miley. Regan's mouth looks weird due to chocolate icing.

Riley's hat makes me think of a new process we are going through around here. Moms of same sex twins face the dilemma of dressing identical, similar, or not at all alike. Sounds silly, I know. I have never dressed the girls identical. I have always gotten the same outfits in different patterns or colors or whatever. I also have always just picked out their clothes for the day and they never really cared. Since the girls are so independent I thought I should just start letting them pick out their own clothes from now on. I thought it would be so easy. Here is how it goes when I ask "So what so you want to wear?":

Regan: I want a black turtle neck, brown pants, and a pink belt. Hmmmmm......
After explaining matching she agrees and we move on.

Riley: A pink dress
Me: Do you want leggings or tights?
Riley: Nothing
Me: It's too cold for this without either one.
Riley: Okay then I want that (shirt).
Me: Okay, what pants.
Riley: A skirt.
Me: Which one
Riley: Pink.
Me: I don't have a pink skirt.
Riley: Remember last summer the one...
Me: That's too small.
Riley: Where is it?
Me: With your clothes that are too small.
Riley: How about you find it and I try it and see.
Me: If you wear a skirt you will still have to pick leggings or tights.
Riley: But I don't want those!

Okay you get the point. I told Jason I never thought it would cause such issues! Honestly neither one of them really care what they wear but I thought it would be healthy to start developing independent identities. Even if it is just what they wear.
