Time Keeps on Ticking ... Ticking

If I were to guess, I'd bet that having an excuse to steal Alexis' old costumes is like 18% of why Mila likes dance. She seems to geniunely enjoy learning choreography and all the fun that happens in class, but THE COSTUMES, YOU GUYS. She spends a lot of energy hunting down old recital costumes and sneakily putting them on.

I say "sneakily" because touching a dance costume is a sure way to get Alexis all wound up. It doesn't matter if they don't fit her anymore. MAYBE THEY WILL EVENTUALLY. YOU NEVER KNOW.

(We have seriously had that argument. ::eyeroll::)

Alexis spent most of the weekend not at home because she has a social life and stuff (HOW DARE KIDS GROW UP AND NOT NEED THEIR PARENTS.). That meant that Mila had loooots of time to go hunting for treasure and basically she spent all of her time dressed like her sister. Some day she will figure out that she shouldn't allow photographic evidence of her shenanigans, but she's not there yet. Alas.

See how proud she is of herself? It's so perfectly Mila. She gets into shenanigans and she's proud of it.

ANYWAY. Mila wearing that particular costume sent me searching for a photo of Alexis wearing it and UUUUUUGH.

HOW HAS IT BEEN EIGHT YEARS SINCE THAT PHOTO? HOW?

Somebody really needs to find the pause button for life. Everything goes by way too fast.

I am always so struck by how alike yet different they are in their looks and personalities. Eight years?!?!?
