Kassidy, "The Mother Hen". Kassidy likes to be in charge and make sure everything is going as it should. She is very opinionated (hmmm...I wonder where she got that trait????) and she likes to be a helper. I think she is going to be my shopping buddy when she grows up. Of all my kids, she is the most like me, both in looks and in personality.
Kaydence, "The Sweethart". Kaydence is super sweet as long as you don't cross her. She has the cutest little voice---when she talks to you in that voice it is hard to say no! Kaydence is the most content to play by herself and she is more of a follower than a leader. She is very detail oriented and can find the tiniest objects on the floor.
Rustin, "The Clown". Rustin is full of personality. He owns every bit of his red hair. He loves to cause trouble, but he always does it with a smile on his face. Of all the kids, he gets the most excited about things. He might be the first in line to steal some ones toy, but he is the biggest teddy bear. Rustin hates shoes and ditches his at the first opportunity.
Kyndall, "The Spitfire". Kyndall is spunky and smart---a little too smart sometimes! She is as much of a troublemaker as Rustin, but in a different way---her misdeeds are much more clever. She loves to make me panic by hiding and not making a noise, while I run around the house looking everywhere for her. While Kassidy wants to be in charge, Kyndall is usually the one the others follow, maybe because she always looks like she is having fun.
Ryder, "The Charmer". Ryder continues to be my most high-maintenance child. He loves to be held and given a lot of attention. When he does get a lot of attention, he is as good as gold, but when he doesn't....watch out! Ryder loves shoes--his or anyone elses. He even sleeps in his shoes.
