Wordless Wednesday — Our Four Kids

by Susan

Olivia, Jackson, Julia and Sophia

Olivia and Jackson may be Janice’s while Julia and Sophia are mine, and the two sets may seem to share little in common, but one thing is for sure… they all love each other like sisters and brothers should.

And don’t the girls look precious wearing their matching Old Navy dresses? They love to have fun dressing alike and sometimes we just can’t resist.

Post a photo on your site, link up and find others… Wordless Wednesday is tons of fun. (And I know it says “wordless” but we love to break rules.)

Here is a fun thumbnail linky…

But if you prefer the old style, you can use this linky:

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

Did you know that Janice and I own two online toy stores where you can find unique toys for Christmas like a pedal car or a cute rocking toy. You know, in case Santa needs any ideas!

That is a great picture of cousins and siblings! They may be different but they sure look like they were getting along well there.

That is the stuff memories are made of! Some day, one of them will be looking at this photo with a smile on their face, remembering all the time they got to spend with each other. I love it! (and I love the matching outfits!)

Absolutely gorgeous photo of the cousins. We tried to do that at Thanksgiving with my boys and my brother’s two kids, but they kept moving too much.

They are ALL adorable and I love the matching outfits!


33 Alicia December 1, 2010 at 9:44 am

Love,love, love the matching dresses! My brother has two kids like I do and we together have four children 3 and under so we dress them alike a lot. We have 3 boys and 1 girl though so no pretty matching dresses here :)


34 Joanne December 1, 2010 at 9:55 am

So cute! Love the dresses :)


35 Tyesha December 1, 2010 at 10:06 am

How adorable are they and I love the dresses…I like seeing kids dress alike and often times I wish I had two girls because it would be so much fun to dress them alike. I have a boy and a girl which makes it difficult to dress them alike, but from time to time Old Navy and Children’s Place has coordinating outfits that allows them to be able to at least wear similar colors especially during the holidays. Thanks for hosting and I hope you will stop by and visit me sometime.


36 Stacey December 1, 2010 at 10:14 am

Such cuties! I love the girls’ dresses too!


37 Mama Whimsy December 1, 2010 at 10:49 am

My fondest memories are with my cousins. This is a beautiful picture!


38 Amy December 1, 2010 at 11:19 am

Those dresses are adorable! One, on it’s own would have been cute. But seeing so many shining faces in the same dress just makes my day. Too cute!


39 Julie {Angry Julie Monday} December 1, 2010 at 11:30 am

I lvoe the matching outfits, so cute!


40 alicia December 1, 2010 at 11:42 am

42 The Gang's Momma December 1, 2010 at 12:43 pm

Better late than never for this Momma . . . Come on over and look at Li’l Empress’s big milestone. And check out my new look while you are at it. . . .



43 Heather December 1, 2010 at 1:17 pm

What an adorable shot ! Love it!


46 angie December 1, 2010 at 3:43 pm

they all look great in their matching outfits I love the colors


47 Lucinda December 1, 2010 at 3:47 pm

My mother used to dress my younger sisters alike. They were only 11 months apart and were often mistaken for twins.

Nice shot of the 5minutesforMom cousins!


48 Lorie Shewbridge December 1, 2010 at 4:07 pm

OH, my goodness, that is such a precious photo. I adore how protective Jackson seems to be of the girls. They are going to be so lucky when they are all in school with such a big brother to protect them…. then you are both going to be in trouble when he brings his friends home to such beautiful girls!! Look out…
Happy holidays.


49 Pam December 2, 2010 at 12:42 am

They all look adorable; especially the grls in their matching dresses. They may as well all be siblings as close as they are!

Thanks for the linky! Your kiddos are all super cute – and look like real siblings! :)

52 Stephanie December 8, 2010 at 1:33 am

That is a FANTASTIC picture! I particularly love the girls matching plaid dresses. Will they wear their headbands all day long? My girls have very little tolerance for things in their hair. ;)
