    OH MY........... TWO Teenage Girls Now Live In My House.........!!!!!

    Yep, our baby girl Mizuki (the tall one) is now 13, so I have two teenage girls living in my house

    I'm thankful for......

    A tankless water heater, that way I can still have a hot shower when I eventually get in there

    TWO Toilets

    Soundproof bedroom walls........... ours and theirs.........

    And last, but not least, that I've been so blessed with such good girls.

    Some pics!

    ...... I know she has a leg up, with us speaking English at home etc, but still, she is the only one in her class to ace the test

    Here is Mizuki with the quilt that my mother made for her, the dogwood flowers in the middle are called "Mizuki" in Japanese, just like her name

    Here is a picture of Erika, with the quilt that my mom made for her birthday in May, both girls are thrilled with their quilts.

    Well, that is it for today!

    Beautiful family Stu. My father-in-law had 5 daughters and one bathroom. He said he could never get in the bathroom but he did have some beautiful rose bushes that seemed to grow real nice on the side of the house.

    Hey Stu good looking family. I am not sure which is better a house loaded with male egos or a house loaded with females. Ours is stacked to the male side going gets tough at times when the young bucks try out their new horns.

    Man those quilts are something else. Your mom does fine work. Those flowers are excellent.

    Its only when one comes into close contact with a quilt that you get to appreciate the level of effort work that goes into them.

    Hey some of us make a set of dovetails (well except for Toni) and wwe have gaps that get filled with filler to hide them, but with quilting every stitch needs to be consistent. Definitely not for me.

    Congrats to Mizuki on the English test. Probably very useful skill to have in Japan eh!
    cheers

    Thanks everyone.

    Allen, you are right, and I've been practicing my "Don't mess with me sonny" look and attitude

    Simple, "If you make 'her' cry, I'll make 'you' cry......"

    Cheers!

    Congrats to the B-day girl Stu! I had one of each, I'm still trying to decide which one was worse as a teen. I'm leaning towards the girl, mostly because the boy was more predictable...he was guaranteed to do something dumb every once in a while, luckily nothing ever serious. He's an absolute joy to be around now days, but there for a while...

    Stu:

    Does your daughter speak English with a Canadian accent? I'm a Canuk but I don't think I have ever said the word Eh.
