Charlotte and Katie have gotten mixed up in the counterfeiting game. We even have nicknames to protect our identities. (I’m “Tummy,” which is only half as offensive as Charlie’s “Why don’t you go to the Daddy gym anymore?” question this morning.)

Here’s a long overdue video from our trip to Disney World back in September. Charlotte pretended to be surprised, but I think she was on to us.
Charlotte was all business on the first day of the new (pre)school year. Katie took it all in stride.
They did partake in some celebratory clapping to mark the occasion.
Charlotte starts Spanish and dance this year. Katie is the star pupil in Almost Walking 101. There are kindergarten scouts crawling all over this daycare center.
Bailey has been whipped into a Hurricane Irene frenzy by our frantic local weather people. Charlotte tried to calm her nerves.
My favorite part of this video is the look Katie gives Charlotte. “How dare you try to show me up.” Then the look right after that says, “I’m going to be a good sport about this. For now.”
Grandma Helen and Grandpa Johnny helped Charlotte fulfill her dream of diner ownership.
Uncle Keith headed up the construction crew.
In this episode, Katie played the role of a drunk, unruly patron.
Here’s a clip of life at the diner:
She told me.
Grandpa Johnny sent the girls these Derek Jeter shirts. You’re not going to believe this, but the New York Yankees have never won a World Series in Katie’s lifetime. Here Charlotte explains to her sister the glorious ’09 title run.
On July 18, Charlotte turned 3! She’s come a long way since hitting the big 0-2 last year (at left).
Her fans gathered for cake and presents.
And we played a few mean games of Elefun. I don’t know if there are any practical applications of this skill, but my cousin Abby is an Elefun savant. She’s like Rickey Henderson when it comes to catching toy butterflies being shot out of a toy elephant’s trunk.
Day two of the three-day birthday extravaganza was very good to Charlotte. Now she doesn’t have to wait around for us to drive her places.
“Kate, you work the radio, I’ll work the pedals.” (Yes, her Jeep comes with a radio.)
