My Girls In Action

Sorry I've been so busy lately, but I've been busy! lol I have a couple of videos clips to share with you. I have a third one, but I can't figure out how to do a quickmovie into youtube to then share :(

This first one is of Peanut running with the wii.

Yes, she speaks of herself in the third person.

This next one was taken this weekend when Papa had both girls for a couple of hours. I think he's a great Papa!!

They both had a great time together. I know they are my granddaughters because they have their tongues out when they are concentrating on something lol.

True Colors by Kristin Hannah

The Grey sisters have always been close. After their mother’s death, the girls banded together, becoming best friends. Their stern, disapproving father cares less about his children than about his reputation. To Henry Grey, appearances are everything, and years later, he still demands that his daughters reflect his standing in the community.

Winona, the oldest, needs her father’s approval most of all. An overweight bookworm who never felt at home on the sprawling horse ranch that has been in her family for three generations, she knows that she doesn’t have the qualities her father values. But as the best lawyer in town, she’s determined to someday find a way to prove her worth to him.

Aurora, the middle sister, is the family peacemaker. She brokers every dispute and tries to keep them all happy, even as she hides her own secret pain.

Vivi Ann is the undisputed star of the family. A stunningly beautiful dreamer with a heart as big as the ocean in front of her house, she is adored by all who know her. Everything comes easily for Vivi Ann, until a stranger comes to town. . . .

In a matter of moments, everything will change. The Grey sisters will be pitted against one another in ways that none could have imagined. Loyalties will be tested and secrets revealed, and a terrible, shocking crime will shatter both their family and their beloved town.

With breathtaking pace and penetrating emotional insight, True Colors is an unforgettable novel about sisters, rivalry, forgiveness, redemption---and ultimately, what it means to be a family.

Being one of three sisters in my family I immediately liked this book. I also found it very interesting in the birth order and how similar their roles were. Is it like that in all families? Great read. I can't wait to order more books by Kristin Hannah. I love her writing and how she draws everything out into the open.

Gotta laugh, it looks like all I do is read and I haven't read in quite a while. I just haven't had time to post lol

Hopefully I'll have time to post some cute videos and pictures of my girls soon.
