the girls

I was feeling some anxiety a few days ago while at my sister's house. We were just about to head over to the hospital again to be with Mark and I was full of worry for him. Then I found a perfect gift to calm my nerves.

My husband, Angela and I were cleaning out Darlene's studio to make room for Mark when he is home from the hospital and needs help. I stumbled upon this picture above while cleaning. I felt a huge warmth spill over me. It is rare to see a group picture of just the girls in our family. I was bummed that my niece Kelly (pam's daughter) wasn't in this one because then it would seriously rock my world.

Here you can see how my two older sisters (pam & darlene) look like porcelain dolls. What beauties they are! You can also see how much me and my niece Angela look alike. This was taken at her high school graduation about 5 years ago. Everyone said we were like twins. Even to this day it can still be freakish how similar we are.

I laughed at my blonde hair a la Jennifer Aniston. Oh geez. At least I tried, eh?

Was hoping to make you smile too.

Oh, you two do so look alike! Wow. I love to see how people in a family look alike, and how genes pop up. My boy looks so much like my baby brother, like that. It's nice.

I do like your darker hair better, but you still look cute here. ;)
