Sisterly Love


I am the second oldest of five girls. I know what you're thinking, "you're poor dad!" But let me assure you he got/gets plenty doted on :-)

This last week we all went up to the San Fran area where my oldest sister lives to celebrate Thanksgiving.
I don't live by any of my sisters, two are going to school in Utah and the other two live in Nor Cal. So when we all get together it is surely one of my favorite things. There is just something so special about having a sister...let alone four! I am so thankful for each and every single one of them. It's funny how different we all are, and yet somehow we just mesh perfectly (most of the time haha).

My sister Rachael (the only true blonde in the bunch) is a photographer...so we got a lot of fun pictures this last week! Including my little families (complete w/ my hubs and baby girl) for our holiday card... which I will share very soon!

I think some of the best family photos (as far as wardrobe goes) are ones that aren't so matchy-matchy; instead try wearing something that shows your personality and who you are--it just so happened that in these pictures, Sadie (unintentionally) wore a sweater that tied all of our colors in! Go figure?! :-)

  1. What a beautiful family!! Seriously, you all look gorgeous and so stylish. Love these pics - looks like you had a wonderful time together. Just as the holidays should be!!

  2. I totally agree with you on the matchy matchy. It gets old. I think it is much more interesting to have everyone wear what they like (within reason ;) so they feel comfortable and when you look back on the pictures you can remember favorite items of clothing or what the kids like to wear.

    btw--your gals are gorgeous!

  14. Aren't sisters the best? I have 3 sisters, and it is so much fun when we are together. It makes me sad I'm not going to give that to my kids, but I can't handle having 5 children (I also have a brother).

  15. This is so great. What a lovely family!
    I'm going to desperately try to get some holiday photos of my family this year. We don't have any family photos dating any further than like, 2008 or something rather. How sad.
