MY GIRLS!

After having two miscarriages, God blessed me with two beautiful daughters. They are exactly six years and one week apart. They were both January babies, so we party most of the month (yes, I give two separate birthday parties one to two weeks apart, because I think they each deserve to have their own day to shine).

But Hollie and April are like night and day. Hollie has brown hair and brown eyes. April has blonde hair and blue eyes. Hollie is more of a rocker chick. April is all country.

Hollie loves...

Piercings and tattoos (getting tattoos, as well as giving tattoos)...





Ghost hunting, old graveyards, and old churches. (Pictures taken by Hollie.)...



Hanging with Rob and her friends...






Photography and Photoshop...


April loves...

Horses and country life...



Playing in the mud, water and 4-wheelers...



Dressing up in costumes and writing on herself(?)
















And seeing just how many friends she can talk me into letting spend the night at one time. (15 so far...yes I'm a glutton for punishment.)


But the two things they both have in common (besides loving their mom) are they both like to take silly pictures with their friends...


and hanging upside down like monkeys...




















...and I love my two monkeys.

You're girls are beautiful!

I'm forever amazed that children raised in the same house can be so very different. My older boys are like night and day.

Awww... Two opposite personalities, but as they say - opposites attract. LOL, I don't know if it's something that applies to your girls. =P

You have gorgeous girls! My brother and I are also January babies! We are less than a year apart! He, Jam 8 and me, Jan 10. My mom didn't do separate parties for us and I am still scarred!

I love how different they are. I have 4 kids. Each one very different! It amazes me how they can all have the same upbringing and be so different!

Stopping my from SITS!

This is such a beautiful post! I love how you different the two girls are, it's nice to be your separate person growing up in a house full of women :)
On a side note, I've popped over to your site a few times but haven't left a comment before. This time I thought I would let you know I was here and love your blog!

Happy SITS Saturday Sharefest!

Your girls are beautiful and look like they're loaded with personality!! :D

Margaret said...

I sometimes look at my kids and wonder how in the world they all came out of the same gene pool because of how different they are!

Mom of Three said...

AWWW! Loved this. From the moment they're born they have their own unique ways don't they!

It's pretty much a given, isn't it? That siblings will be as different as night and day. And I have to say, I like this blog post and the great way you've "shown" just how opposite two siblings can be. :)

Brenda Jean said...

AWESOME girls! My boys are completely different too. One is 15and one is 16. Like night and day:)
Their birthdays are a week apart!

Happy late birthday to the girls!

Awww...maybe I'm hormonal this morning or something but this sweet post made me cry. I LOVE that they are so different. Where they intersect is in being sisters but they have their own individual identities. Wonderful! (I have two girls too and though they are much younger than yours - mine are 3 & 7 - I can already tell they are VERY different, so I relate to this so much.) Happy SITS Day!
