Everyone has someone in their life that holds a very special place in their heart- for me, it is my sister. There is a bond between my sister and I that not everyone is blessed enough to have ever experienced. Yes, she is my sister, but she is also so much more. To say she is my best friend does not fully describe the relationship we have always had because it is so much more than that.
You see, there is 12 years difference between the two of us, yet we have always had a very unique connection. Our heart strings are tied together in a way that no one could ever undo.
Now my sister is all grown up - and that has been very hard for me. I had a hard time letting her go, but time has helped me to see that even though she is all grown up and living thousands of miles away from me, we are still very close ~ because no one can separate that special love that her and I share.
I talked to her the other day and promised to post some current pictures of some kids that she loves very much, but hasn't gotten to see in a couple of years ~~ my children. So these pictures are for her. I love you Margaret - and you will never now how much you mean to me.
Jeffrey is working at Sykes (for those who don't know what that is...it is a computer tech support company.) It's hard to believe he is almost 20 years old!!
Nick wasn't around for a current picture, but other than being a few inches taller than he is here, he still looks the same (I'm think he is 6' 3" now!!) He was marching in a parade when this picture was taken, but his all time favorite thing to do is still basketball ~~ although he loves baseball too.
Elisabeth (or Bob as you call her) and her crooked ponytails (heehee). She's still just as tiny as ever. She continues to get taller but can't seem to get past 48 pounds. I told her we'd throw a party when she finally reached 50!! It's hard to believe this little girl will be 9 in just a few months.
She loves to read and thinks figuring out square roots is FUN. (A girl after her mom's own heart!!)
And last, but not least ~~ My Mooser Man ~~ the baby, Brett Samuel. Doesn't that face just melt your heart?? I could just squeeze his stuffings out!!!
He outweighs his sister now, but isn't as tall (yet.) He loves kindergarten and has the prettiest cursive writing you will ever see!! He reads like a pro and thinks he can do anything his brothers and sister can do. That is actually a scary thought, because he is quite a daredevil. His last stunt was to see if he could ride his bike out of the back of Nick's truck!!
