Makeup time!

Angie got Josie some play makeup! She let Josie pick out anything she wanted from......Walgreens! Oh yeah! Josie just kind of stood there all starry eyed! This is the kind of makeup every 3 year old girl loves. You know the one that WILL NOT wash off no matter what you do! Home girl got a hold of it before Nana's Christmas musical! She had red "eye shadow" on. It looked like she'd been stung by a bee. The crazy thing is that Joey and I didn't even notice it until we were on the way! How is that? How did we not see her lipstick eyeshadow?? We tried to rub it off! Big mistake, our tireless efforts only made her eyes more red. So, we just left it! :)
Josie's sweet Aunt Christy let her do her makeup! She's so good! That was a major turning point in their relationship. Josie has always loved her Aunt Christy, but after this little experience together, Josie's really feeling the love for my sister! :) Christy got to do Josie's makeup, too. Don't you just love that baby blue? Such fun memories!!

Aunt Cheryl and Josie have the sweetest relationship! For more than a year now she and Josie have made Aunt Cheryl's homemade chocolate chip cookies together. And I do mean together. Cheryl lets Josie be a part of each step. It's so special!

When I tell the kids that Uncle Lennie and Aunt Cheryl are coming Jake says, "Aint Cheryl cookies, Unca Lennie couch." If that's not the truth, I don't know what is! Cheryl works in the kitchen and Lennie chills on the sofa.

I had to take a picture of Cheryl's nails. Josie pays such close attention to every detail. One morning we were watching a Hi-5 show. Lord, help me! Josie saw that Kimee's nails were polished. She goes, "Look Mommy, she has paint on her nails like Aunt Cheryl!" Then I got to thinking....I don't think, in all my years of knowing Cheryl, that I've ever seen those nails naked!

We love our family tradition! :)
