(I still thought we were saying cheese at this point.)
I caught on quick.
This is what a zoom does. (and a 5-year age difference) Seriously? Please note the lack of wrinkles and blemishes and worry spots on that innocent little (almost) 25 year old face. Can someone please recommend a cream for the wrinkly girl on the bottom?? She needs to face the facts.
(Don't tell my preacher I was taking pictures please.)
Christmas Eve. Home with my beautiful family. (Take 4 with the self-timer).
This used to gross me (and my friends) out. Now it makes me smile.
That's 35 years worth of lovin'.
My sister is one of my favorite things.
We tend to be dramatic. This is us singing (and acting out) the song "Sisters" from White Christmas. It's tradition. Live with it.
My best friend. The source of our drama. And love. And laughter. And goofiness. And tenderheartedness. And compassion. And creativeness. And I think Jessie might have gotten organization from her.
My first love, to whom all men are compared, but never matched. The source of our height And wisdom. And devotion. And unconditional love. And I think Jessie got some of Daddy's patience. Oh, and his toes, sheesh, we got his toes.
Oh PawPaw. You just won't do sometimes.
And I'm pretty sure Mimi just disowned you. Lose the wig.
Jessie and I, after a long night helping Santa.
My "special friend" as Mimi titled him. He thinks I'm cool even with antlers. ;)
Enjoying their new swing. Checking out the mechanics of it all. Let's look up.....
And now straight ahead.....
I love my Mimi and PawPaw.
Cheesy family shot. Jazz hands.
Christmas Day at the Parker's. Not sure how Wes felt about the antlers.....
My beautiful cousin Lindsey. Soon to be a married woman.
Oh, Grandmother. You are my heart.
Uncle Pat and Jeff hamming it up. Love it.
Shelby. Stopping growing up please. You should be seven still.
