  • 1 performance
  • 3 quads, multiple uses

  1. The girls and I enjoyed your vacation pics T! Looks like a whole lot of fun.

  2. Ha ha! I was about to comment on how cute that photo is of you and Jase ( it IS) and was completely taken back by seeing my own mug staring back at me! I'd forgotten about the crowns, that I was princess for a night. It was SO good to see you, all five of you. What a great trip!

  3. Wow! What a fun holiday you guys had. This is inspiration for me to do my holiday post as well.

  4. Dawn - Way fun. Sigh. That was then, this is now. ;-)

    Colleen - And what a pretty Highness you made. We'll just agree that we were all pretty cute.

    Rohini - Yay! for holiday posts. It's like being there, a little bit, to read what someone else did! Can't wait to get over there and read it!
