Countdown to 30: Day Seven

I have some incredibly intelligent, talented, creative, brilliant, funny, and endlessly entertaining siblings who love me to the core. We are each unique and individual--different from one another as night from day. And yet, when together, I feel like I'm with "my people." I feel I make some strange sort of sense.

This is all of them--"Yours, Mine, and Ours."
I'm the baby.
I was loved by all. Naturally.
(So I say.)

And sometimes this being loved business included mauling.
With a side of: "Because you're the youngest, that's why. Now go get it."

Like I said: these are my people.
(Sister-o-Mine, we evidently need to pose in front of the camera at the same time.
But, as always, thank you for engaging in my goofy posing games while on vacations.)

(Watch for the signature Brooke & Wendy pose again in this post.)

If only I had this one's height.

(Told ya it was coming.)

And a more recent picture of me and the brother.
(Have I mentioned how much I love this picture of me and my boys?)

(Also, in searching for photos for this post, I've realized I need to start posing in front of the camera more often with the Dad siblings--sheesh, Rookie!)

I can't imagine loving, fighting, laughing, playing, teasing, celebrating, torturing, admiring, commiserating, living my life, complaining, or hanging with any other siblings but these. I'm lucky to have so many crazy kids to call my very own.
Half or not, I call you all ALL mine.

Thanks for putting up with 30 years of this:

I love the family pictures! I call my family "My people" too :)

Wendy said...

I'm surprised the family photo isn't on "Awkward Family" ;)

I must agree with the others-that portrait rocks!

Also-so does NKOTB!! Jon (I'm pretty sure he didn't use an H-so edgy) was my favorite. Sister Sarah was partial to your pal Joey.
