The big kids are at basketball with Daddy so things have been pretty low-key for the past couple of hours. After a while the creative juices started flowing through Gracie and Mari and I listened as my little girls giggled while dancing around (and around...and around) our coffee table singing "If you're happy and you know it" at the top of their lungs. One was on beat as she shouted "Hoo-Ray!" The other? Not so much. I heard "Hoo-Ray!" followed 1 1/2 beats later by "Hoo-Way" (in the cutest little African accent ever) and I quickly got out the video camera to record the cuteness.
Now they are playing dress-up and two beautiful brown-skinned princess are on parade in all their glitter and rustly-ruffle-ness with flowers in their hair and purses on their shoulders.
Life is good.
