9 years old!

Magalie is 9, and it seems that just yesterday she was a newborn in my arms. We had some of her friends over to celebrate her last single digit birthday. It was the first day of cooler weather here in Pensacola. The kids called it “freezing”, a bit of an exaggeration… The girls went outside, tried out Meg’s new jump rope, all decked out for a winter day, had a glorious time in this delightful temperature, and I pulled my camera out of the bag.

Mimi, Meg, Lizzy, and Frannie

Vive l’automne! We don’t have much of the fall leaves in the beautiful red, orange and yellow hues, but it’s still fun to toss what we have in the air,

After a few minutes of running around, the initial “freezing cold” day wore off. I love their “bad-girls-on-scooter” look!

    Oh what fun memories for these four! They are so beautifully done I cannot even imagine that in 20 years they will look back and giggle at how they looked (don't we all do that with our childhood images?).

    By the way, are you sure that they are only 9/10? They look like they feel about 16!:)
