Kerry and I went down to NC to work on our house.  The girls stayed in VA by themselves.  I was anxious about leaving them alone for two nights and I texted them regularly to make sure everything was okay.

At one point I texted each of their phones, "I love you!"

I immediately got a text back from Katie saying, "I love you too!"

A minute or so later, Emily texted, "Katie just shouted, 'There can be only one!' and tried to strangle me."

We were heading out to see a movie and we had all gotten a little more spiffed up than usual.  While we were riding along, Emily said, "We are a good looking family!"

Kerry responded, "Yep, it's really not fair to all the other families out there."

Katie piped up, "But they get to look at us so it all evens out!"
