Sisters

I am so lucky to have three sweet girls. And my girls are so blessed to have each other and to be so close in age. I can only hope that they will be best friends their whole lives. I, on the other hand, grew up with 3 brothers. I can't complain now, because they have helped me become the person I am today. But I couldn't borrow Cade's clothes, have Jake dye my hair, or stay up all night talking about boys with Luke?? So, I always wanted to have a sister to do all those things with. Well, when I was almost 20, my cousin Mandi moved in with us while she went to school and I got to experience all those things. However, at times it made me realize how lucky I was to be the only girl growing up. Moments like when I went to get dressed and the outfit I wanted to wear was gone. Or when I needed to shower and get ready and Mandi had gotten up just one minute before me and taken the bathroom. :) But on the other hand we did get to share each others clothes, give each other opinions on hairdos, stay up all night talking, go shopping, and just hang out together. It was perfect having a best friend live in the next room. And now I am lucky enough to have 8 sister-in-laws to hang out with, raise babies with, and be best friends with (and live with). So, I know there will be good times and bad times as sisters, but I hope my girls can have as much fun as I did having a sister for just over one year and as much fun with their future sister-in-laws as I do now!!

Amy-
Your girls (and whole family for that matter) are adorable. They look like they are always so happy! I just wanted to say hi. Scharee sent me a link to Cecilie's blog which got me clicking on others. I apparently need to get with the program. I hope you are doing well. I miss all of you and hope you keep in touch! I will check in on your page from time to time.

I'm so happy about your blog background! It turned out super cute.

And yes, we all need sisters and sisters-in-law to get through the crazy times. Your girls are so lucky to have each other!
