Claire Bear: Hide-and-Seek!

When I was a kid, hanging out with Jill & Laura was the absolute coolest. They lived just blocks from my house, were only a couple of years older than me, and.... the fun part? Their phone number was only one-digit different than mine! (Surely, I will never forget it! Ha ha!)

We spent countless hours singing, dancing, building 'haunted houses' for the whole neighborhood to tour through, and of course.... burying time capsules in the backyard. :)

Now that we're all grown up, all three of us are married. And Laura has this darling little girl (with another babe on the way!) And Jill and her husband are expecting their first child around the same time. Incredible.

Bright and early Halloween morning, while the girls were in town visiting, we got together for photos in their parents' backyard.


1,2,3.... You can't find me!

"Ready or not, here I come!"

Donna, Jill and Laura's mom, was our music coach, choreographer, and knew how to throw great b-day parties and tell the best ghost stories!

Gate to the "Secret Garden" perhaps?

You girls are just incredible. It's always great to see you!
