On Saturday, I was sitting in the living room — folding laundry, catching up on email and generally recovering from our trip. I looked up and Maude was standing in front of me dressed as a mime. Why? Not sure. I guess inspiration struck and she went with it. Olive saw Maude and joined in.
I love these girls.
Do your kids ever surprise you with funny things like this?
P.S. — Speaking of our trip, you can find my photo set of our vacation here — including more photos of the pool tilework (for those of you who requested them).

I always like it when people where pantyhose as pants. It’s funny.
hahaha i love this. they are so gorgeous and look like they are full of creativity and verve for life. so so cute. [and so nice for them that they are raised in a home where creativity is encouraged & celebrated]
I want to know the story behind the pool. Did your sister put it in or was it there when she bought the house? If she put it in, did she design the tile work? If so, did the kids contribute ideas or favorite ceramic pieces? Either way, what a neat feature!
Gabrielle, your girls are so pretty and funny!
So precious! I love to hear my tot play with his farm and name all of his animals. For some reason, he always chooses one to be “Pancho”. It cracks me up every time!
That is the cutest!!
That is adorable… and funny! I’m betting now your little Maude just started a trend (Mime for Halloween?) I’m calling it right now.
Very cute! You have gorgeous girls!
Your girls are hilarious. My boys like to hide in their halloween costumes and then jump out and scare us when we walk by :)
Oh- I just love this! The tights and suspenders are hilarious!
They are going to look back at these photos years from now and roll over laughing! Too cute!
So clever! Your girls are beautiful!!
OH MY WORD they’re gorgeous. Brace yourself for the calls you’ll be getting from modeling agencies after this. I love the ultra serious faces. So awesome to have such creative kids. My daughter has no clue what a mime is but she sure says hilarious stuff…the other day she told my husband she wanted to help fertilize an egg-she suggested painting it…(that is, the variety of eggs that would make her a baby sister…
The second photo is brilliant!
Are those marching band gloves I see? : )
Maybe not, but the band geek in me sure hopes so.
Oh what gorgeous and creative girls!
Creative minds at work! :)
Reminds me of a joke my mother sent me:
If the police are reading a mime her Miranda rights, do they tell her she has the right to remain silent? hee hee
Your daughters are BEAUtiful!
Seriously, they are too awesome. I can not believe how much they are growing up!
Those are the least creepy mimes I’ve ever seen!! What fun and funny girls!
All my kids surprise me with is good behavior (they are 2 and 3 years old and really like to tantrum ’til their noses bleed).
How stinkin cute is this post! Darling just darling!
Oh how cute are they? I do feel, and I’m speaking as a parent of a daughter, that these will need to be shown to future boyfriends or included in a collage for their wedding showers. ;) Use that creativity Design Mom! LOL ;)
I love the impromptu choreography of sibling delight.
My gosh they look like twins. I didn’t realize how alike they are! Too fun!
Brilliant ladies! <3
they are incredible. clearly creatively gifted, like their mother.
I love their expressions! And mime hands! Oh, I love these captured moments that sometime offer themselves up when we least expect it.
Hahaha! They’re so cute! I love that they have stockings and suspenders clipped to them!
Seriously, how cute and stylish are your girlies?! Beautiful. I vividly remember these lazy summer days full of playing dress up. So fun.
great pix! gosh, takes me back! my son used to love to do mime. once my car broke down at night and we had to wait off to the side of the road in a busy intersection. my son hopped out and started miming in front of some floodlights that were illuminating a sign. i still chuckle.
Memories! We used to play mimes as kids…although I think it was just my mom’s way of getting us to be quiet for awhile. : )
ha ha! those girls are hilarious and so creative! what beautiful souls!! xo
on a side note, i cannot believe how much of a mini-me maude is of you!!! seriously! it’s crazy… especially that picture of her by the fire roasting marshmallows from a few days prior!
Adorable, and your girls are just unbelievably gorgeous!! They are looking so grown up and beautiful!!
The best thing about this is that you had two pairs of suspenders and groucho glasses in your house. That’s the way to foster creativity! They are going to love these shots when they grow up:)
Are those 3D glasses from the movie theater? Our kids are getting a lot of mileage out of those things! I think I’m going to need to add some suspenders to our dress up box.
Look at the rag monster that roared at me a few days ago…
Beautiful post… but the most important thing right now (after having perused through your pics in Flickr) is that you do a post with that picture of you in the red shirt, with the baby covered by the SUPER CUTE brown… cover?
How beautiful! I love it! I want to buy one!
Just love these beauties and their creativity!
That is the coolest. I hope my kids do that someday. Right now they’re 3 and 18 months old so they pretty much just leg wrestle and argue over Woody from Toy Story:)
OMG…brilliant! Just brilliant! Love it!
Oh sweet and funny girls !
I LOVE this!! A few weeks ago, my girls decided to get all dolled up and take a trip to Paris…
Okay, could your kids be any more gorgeous?! (No.) They look like models!!! So clever and fun too. I love them. :)
Goodness! How do you keep thinking of these amazing and adorable ideas?
