the sisters of the family

a simply wonderful life



Rich and I have two beautiful daughters.

About four years ago they looked like that up there^^

Since it’s spring vacation this week, I had a little extra time to take a few sister pictures.

I bought new shirts for them at target; Grace can wear a size 14/16 and Sarah Joy a size 4, from the girls department.

I waited ten years to have two girls but can you believe this is the first time they’ve dressed alike?








And now,



get ready,



for an explosion,











โ€œFor there is no friend like a sister
In calm or stormy weather;
To cheer one on the tedious way,
To fetch one if one goes astray,
To lift one if one totters down,
To strengthen whilst one standsโ€

Christina Rosetti (one of my favorite poets)

  1. Well, after a good night’s sleep, I’m here. ๐Ÿ˜‰
    Beautiful Sisters! They are going to be best friends for life.
    I love their pink shirts…I may have to check our Target for those. ๐Ÿ™‚
    Happy Thursday.

  2. They are adorable! Not having sisters myself I love and am fascinated watching my girls – I always thought I’d make a better boy mommy but I’m glad God thought differently. ;))

  3. Absolutely Beautiful …so clever with the black and white photo’s bursting in to the hot pink….Really , really nice post …Well done Mamma ……You now have some very framable art for the wall on this one ….:-)

  4. My sister and I are 10 years apart. It seemed like a lot when we were young, but now that she is 60 and I am 70, ten years is nothing. ๐Ÿ™‚
