why katie is awesome

It's fun to observe and guess which of Katie's personality traits/quirks could have come from which parent. She's definitely her own person, but the 'nature vs. nurture' debate can't be avoided at times.

Who could these traits derive from?

When I came out into the living room one morning, Katie had been up for a while. This is what I walked out to. (Poor Prince Charming did not make the cut, and is off by himself on the side of the chair.)

While all the kids in our house love to play with the pegs, Katie actually likes to create pictures out of them - and sometimes arrange them by color - and not just spray them all over the floor.

She - and her com padres - loves to bake. (Now to only find someone willing to cook . . . )

She loves to climb and jump from rock to rock like a mountain goat, and shows no fear near the edge.
The battle of the pants is so on!

The battle of the pants is never won by those who don't have hips. The kids pants can never be slim enough or long enough. Good luck!

I think it's safe to say the pants thing appears to come from Roger. That last pick totally cracked (no pun intended) me up.

Hi, my name is Krissy. I found your blog just by jumping around to different blogs. Yours is quite cool! I would say that as far as traits go, Katie would have picked the one where she lines the dolls up perfectly, and the pegs (esp by color and neatly), to the parent who is most organized and neat! Or who has OCD, LOL! That's obsessive compulsive disorder. Just kidding, LOL! Since I don't know you all, I can't be sure of the rest! Anyway, I'd like to introduce myself, my name is krissy, and if you'd like to stop by my blog, it is listed below! :)
