    Lightbulb both/all mine both/all

    Father: I love my two kittens. Where are yours?
    Daughter 1:
    Both mine live well. // Mine both live well.

    Father: I love all my puppies. Where are yours?
    Daughter 2:
    All mine board at my friend's house. // Mine all board at my friend's house.


    Are they all correct?

    Now the money is all mine. (This is OK to me)

    But, how about this one?

    Now the money is mine all.

    Thank you.
