Times They Are A Changin'

Morgan's favorite people in the whole world are her cousins. Although this revelation may come as a shock to her grandparents (sorry guys), it's something the rest of us have known for a long time.

But during this summer's vacation, I noticed a shift in the cousin of them grew up. It was no longer the four of them off playing. Instead, it was like we had three little monkeys and one, well, not-so-little monkey. All of a sudden, Dylan was off with the men, doing manly things. Like fishing...and farting. You know, manly.

But then I decided to break out the face paint - First, there was Olivia -- she was feeling a little under the weather so I thought a snazzy butterfly would cheer her up. It clearly worked. You can't even tell she had a fever of 102 and a double ear infection. Such a trooper.

Then I moved on to the little ones -- they got matching spider webs because, frankly, that was the end of my artistic skill set.

Right about that time, Dylan returned from his trip with the guys and decided I had done it ALL wrong. Being the son of an artist, he got right to work. Morgan was all too happy to oblige.

Collin, not wanting to feel left out, insisted Dylan give him a few enhancements as well.

They quickly evolved into two stunning beauties, complete with uni brows and moustaches. So far beyond what I could have given them.

And then Dylan took a good long look in the mirror and decided he needed his own little bit of flare.When it was all said and done, it looks like Dylan might not be growing up too fast after all. Thank goodness -- those little guys sure like having him around.

What a funny day! You are such a wonderful - fun Aunt & Mom. I can't believe how much these kids are growing up :0) You are right - Dylan is the "Big" man with a sweet heart! Liv is too cute with Collin and Morgan! This was so fun until it was time to scrub it off! Love them all so much!
