25 Things

Following Hannah's trend, I've decided to do a list of 25 things about my girls. I did set a few rules for myself though. I didn't think I'd be able to come up with many for each so I wanted it to be done in a set time limit and I didn't want to 'think' about it. So I did just that. I easily managed 27 for Kamryn but struggled with Lauryn after 23. So I just made an even number of 25 for both. I was glad this didn't take long as I would have worried about how in touch I was with my girls. I'm sure I've missed a few key points ;)

25 Things about Kamryn Alesia Nelson:

She treats her favorite toys like real things; her baby and My Little Pony.

Those are fantastic lists, Christi!! I loved reading them. I was interested to see Lauryn's middle name is Amelia - so is mine!!!
And LOL about Lauryn eating more than Kamryn at dinner time - it is exactly the same at our house, with Tyler eating more than Ethan!
I feel as if I really know your girls now - so thank you!

I giggled at the "nailpolish" bit and the "misplaced Hindu dot" ; ) Fantastically positive things about your girls! Are you going to scrapbook them??

Very awesome listing Christi! You've pointed out some of the things that really make the girls unique! I so enjoy reading your "updates". I just wish I could remember to keep mine up. Well, I probably could if I didn't let half the people i'd talk about know about the board! :D

Take Care,
Jamie :)

Rachel - I think I will scrapbook them. I am going to go through my photos and find one that stands out right now for each of them. It may prove difficult though as Kamryn is always pulling faces! Cheeky girl! I will have to post the layouts when I do it! I MUST SIGN UP TO THE SITE HANNAH MENTIONED!
