Tomboy Checklist

My husband gave me a break and took our 4-year-old twin daughters to visit Grandma over the weekend. The cute skort outfits and colorful hair bows I packed for the trip were left untouched in the suitcase.

Carrhartt overalls? Check.


Rubber boots? Check.

Backhoe playground equipment? Double check.



Dinner last night: chicken dipped in ranch batter and oven baked, mashed potatoes (harvested from Grandma's garden!) and gravy, corn, rhubarb/strawberry crisp with vanilla ice cream

Don't we all have a little tomboy in us?

Adorable.

Very cute!

Stef said...

hilarious & adorable. i agree with Kathy G...at least the outfits match!
i heard a story from my boss once of a friend of hers who came home one night from a "night off" & dad had put the baby to bed in a pj top & jeans for the bottoms.
hahahaha..now thats bad.

Their outfits seem to perfectly fit the grayish weather behind them. And there is pink in the picture, so at least they still look like girls. They're darling no matter what.

My husband is the worst. I have to pack clothes in large zip lock bags with days of the week labeled on them if he is in charge of dressing any of the kids.

Denise said...

My boys lived in those same sort of carhart bibs and boots. But girls are soooo adorable in them!

Ha ha! That would be my husband too. Except there would be NO pictures, none at all. Therefore no evidence.
Hope you enjoyed your break :)

My girls are total girly girls and want dresses every time I'm in charge of getting them dressed. When Hubby's in charge they're all about jeans and t-shirts. Go figure.

Dawn (Bee and Rose) said...

They look fabulous! And who doesn't love the seesaw!

Diva said...

I decided not to worry about how my husband dresses my girl when he's in charge. She's a kid, she'll survive. Plus, who needs to worry more?? Not me.

Thanks so much for visiting during my SITS Day!

Ha! They look precious. :) At least he used pink stripes, huh? lol

Mother Mayhem said...

Love them! :o)

Melanie said...

I love it! I wish I could wear a pair of overalls and look as cute as she does. Don't worry, I won't even try.

Gris said...

Umm, looks like grandma took a side trip to the Kachemak Bay Gear Shed with the twins!

Kim said...

Yes, Gris, you got that right!

The girls LOVE their rubber boots—which I don't mind, because they don't need me to put them on their own feet, and the boots keep their feet dry and relatively warm (if the girls will keep their socks on!)
