In our household, the boys rule. We females are far outnumbered (especially right now with the added presence of two grandsons.) We are surrounded by boy stuff: tractors, paper airplanes, legos, trucks, tools, skateboards...
But we do have two daughters and it's been heavenly for both to be together again enjoying their sisterhood. They were born exactly ten years and one day apart. Celebrating their birthdays every February 5th and 6th over the years was always lots of girly fun.
This year Katie is here for her birthday and for her sister's birthday so what a great excuse to have another girly party!
Our little country cottage is getting gussied up in paper finery.
But we had other things on our minds.
Because the girls don't get together enough.
And a person only turns eighteen once in her lifetime.
