Outnumbered

My friend Sariah just came to visit Tuesday night and left Wednesday afternoon. She brought her super fun girlies, Cadi & Rori, which brough the girly count up to 5. Poor Steve was severely outnumbered and Jason wasn't that much help. ;-) We had a great time hanging out, chatting, playing with the kids, wandering the mall, and eating. It was short, but tons of fun! It had been almost a year and a half since we'd last seen them (the beginning of June 08), so it was well overdue! Her girls were so much bigger and even more fun. Cadi wanted to play with Jason all the time, and offered to hold and carry him a lot. Jilly and Rori actually played together a bit, and then all three little ladies had a slumber party in Jilly's room. It was insane trying to get them to bed, and I think it was 11:30 or midnight before they were all asleep. And then of course, us adults stayed up until like 2:30am, just talking. Somehow the kids didn't get the "we stayed up late" memo and were up bright and early at 7am! We were all pretty tired, to say the least. ;-) It was a wonderful time and we were so happy to have them visit.

Just for fun, here's a picture of Jilly and Rori the first time they met (Jilly 3 months, Rori 7 months):

And this last time, both girls 3 years old (well, practically, Jilly's birthday is in 2 weeks).

I love that they have similar expressions in both pictures. Cute girlies for sure. Look at how much they've grown. Such long and pretty hair they have. :-)

You're right, they do have similar expressions in both pics! lol We had so much fun. Oh - I still need to e-mail those pics to you, I'm sorry. Been swamped. Will do it right now. :)

OK I thought, "why is Jason wearing pink?" since I saw the picture first and read it second. your kids are definitely related!
