The first picture just speaks for itself, doesn't it? Noah is such a cheeser. I mean, just look at that grin. There's mischief behind that grin, experience tells me.

There's a bit of a story behind the second picture. Rylee was playing quietly in her room (perhaps that should have served as a warning with any other child, but Rylee playing quietly does not usually equate to trouble for me). She comes to me and says, "What do you think, Mom?" I look and realize that she has just decided to cut herself some bangs. My immediate reaction was to laugh, so I covered my mouth so she wouldn't see. I didn't want her to think it was funny to cut your own hair. After 30 seconds of silent laughter, I just couldn't help it anymore and realized that I simply was not going to be able to keep a straight face as I questioned her. I said, "Rylee, why did you cut your hair?" She says, "I just wanted bangs". I continue to smirk as I look at her cutting job. She said, "I don't want everyone to laugh at me because I have bangs now!" I said, "I'm laughing because I can not believe you just cut your hair and did such an amazing job...don't you dare ever cut your hair again!!" She cut her bangs so well you never would have guessed a 6 year old did it. The following day she went with me to get my hair trimmed. She decided to get her hair cut as well and now has a shoulder length "do". She looks so much older now, sniff, sniff!

The last picture is Gracyn taking a bath a couple of weeks ago. Does this child ever stop smiling and making herself look adorable? I mean, really. As my mom often says, "Not an ugly bone in her body".

Your kids are getting SO big! Rylee looks so mature! Greacen is just adorable.

You used the words FUNNY and SCISSORS in the same sentence! That's one of my biggest fears!
