photostory friday - goodbye teenager, hello teenager

for exactly TWO weeks, we only had ONE teenager in the house.

one turned 20, but then 2 weeks later, another one turned 13, so we're back to TWO.

cum january 2011, there'll be THREE!
i think i'll move out that month
anyone wanna take me in?

when i spoke to my dad on sunday for fathers' day (yes, our fathers' day is in september, not june), he said he calculated that i'd have teengers for 16 years...

SIXTEEN!!!

YEARS!!!

*sigh*

i could write a book...

miss 13 and miss 20 - together
heeeeeeeeeeeey! how'd you grow up so fast???

ok, so these might not be my 'best shots', but i really wanted to post about these two, ok?!

Great pictures and I just love those pink curls in the first one.
All of them your best shots I am sure.

Two lovely girls! I love the shot with the pink wig. Too funny!

Emily said...

Such cute girls! Good luck entering the teenage years again.

Sass E-mum said...

Oh wow. They look so great. I feel broody all over again.

Debbie said...

I hear you on the teenager front. I have three and will add a fourth in
6 months!

Lauren said...

Beautiful pictures! Someday all of mine will be teenagers at the same time. I am not really looking forward to it if the preschool attitude and drama is any indication of what high school will be like! Your girls are beautiful!

Latree@Dandelion said...

I am waiting for mine to be teenagers... is it fun or scary?

Chris said...

Well, thanks a LOT, now you just forced me to do the math too! I'll have teenagers for thirteen years. Ugh.
Luckily, they'll all be teenagers together for only a year!

Carrie and Troy Keiser said...

I don't even WANT to do the math on this one! :)
Happy birthday to both of your ladies!

Elaine A. said...

Gosh, they're beautiful! That is a lot of teenage years. WOW!

Margot said...

Gosh they grow up so fast, don't they! Only one more to go teenaged - when Natasha hits the teens you'll really be in a new phase. Asylum available over here in the 'rapa any time you need it!

Sixteen years of teenagers? YOu are brave! Great post and it is good to see that they get along even with the age gap. Hey, one of my best friends is my little sister and she is several years my junior!

Lolli said...

I will be there someday. My oldest is 12 1/2....and I've got 4 more kids every 2 years after that. I love those older pictures of your cute kids!
