Here's something too precious to part with:
October 2005. For Mia's third farm-themed birthday, Sally constructed a cardboard lamb for the kids to pose behind for photos, with soft wool and felt ears and a real bell on a pink satin ribbon around its neck. Flower and glitter in the grass behind him as he jumps over a fence.
Here's our big ten year old this week, as Nora peeks out.
In August 2007, when Mia was four and Nora was two, we spent a week in Saugatuck, where Sally welcomed the girls with cardboard horses to gambol around the yard.
Here they are this week, still adorable, still fun. Love has no expiration date, man.
