Goodness. What has happened to this last month? We have taken the portraits, but I haven't found the moment needed to post them here. Other words I would like to write here are swirling around in my head. Maybe none of them are all that important but I would like to write again. Just practise.

Maggie: Like the cat that got the cream. My sister flew over from London and met the girls for the first time. They adored her. Two weeks went very quickly. Rob took this portrait.
Elisabeth: How can they look so knowing, so wise?

Maggie: Oh that cheeky grin has never changed. We have been talking about Rob's upcoming birthday. Maggie told him over dinner last night that he is "having a party, but don't tell anyone it's a surprise!"
Elisabeth: Ok I do see a bit of myself in this photo. Elisabeth has her first crush. She is head over heels for Simon on ABC's play school. I realised she was picking only the Simon episodes on iview (much to Maggie's dismay, she doesn't seem to share Elisabeth's love of Simon). When I asked her why she liked Simon, she replied "oh he has a lovely pink shirt, I love him!"

Maggie: These portraits bookend our Easter Sunday. The girls fresh in the morning, in pink dresses with gingham bows. Rob took this photo of Maggie before I took the latest photo in our monthly twin portrait series (see the hashtag #huttwinsmonthlysnap on Instagram). The girls had the best day, with an Easter hunt at home in our garden as well as one later in the day with their cousins at my parents home. 
Elisabeth: I took a more reflective portrait of Elisabeth in the evening of our Easter Sunday. Perhaps coming down from her sugar high?

Maggie: This look is one we see quite often. One of my sisters has just met the girls for the first time (she lives in the UK) and she has noticed already that Maggie stops and assesses people, sometimes accompanied by this narrowed eye look!
Elisabeth: A direct look from Miss Elisabeth. Probably annoyed that I had been disturbing their game under the canopy of the hazel trees.

Playing catch up with my portraits. The portraits were taken on time, but we have been relaxing over the Easter break and hosting visitors so photo editing and blogging took a back seat.
