Siblings

Wear & Stare

“Glamour shots at Zellers in the mid nineties. My sister kept blinking when they took the photo so they told her to keep her eyes open.”

Lesson Learned

“This picture is of my little sister Noelle and me. This was from sometime in 1996. The fact that I was nine years old is my only excuse for my extraordinary bad outfit.

I loved playing with my baby sister. I am 9 years older than her, so I was able to be more interactive with her as a baby than I had been with my other younger siblings. So I was holding her up in the air over my head, playing ‘airplane.’ The following conversation occurred between my mom and I, moments before this photo was taken:

Mom: Rachel, she just ate, you probably shouldn’t do that.
Rachel: No, she burped she will be fine.
Mom: It really isn’t a good idea.
Rachel: But she is having so much fun.
*Noelle proceeds to spit up all over Rachel’s face*
Rachel: AHHHHHHH! MOM I NEED A TOWEL!
*Mom runs and grabs a camera*
*click*
Mom: Told ya.

One of the best examples ever of ‘Mommy Knows Best.'”

Stars And Yikes

“That one time in 1992 I thought my siblings and I should take a photo for my mom’s Mother’s Day gift. We ended up looking like the Brady Bunch Band.”

Backstage With Brunhilda

“From 2005. I had just concluded my mesmerizing performance as Brunhilda. Dad was going through his hair growing phase, which turned him into a hippie Benjamin Franklin. Mom was also going through a phase with her hair. And my sister was so excited to be at my 8th grade play that she couldn’t even keep her eyes open.”

The Letter A

“Well, I met my year old niece for the first time. So I thought it would be nice if she and her sister would take pictures with my son. Needless to say that it didn’t go so well. They kept asking if we wanted to re shoot but these were way too priceless to get rid of.”

#4

“I thought it would be cute for my daughter to announce to our family on Facebook that we were having baby #4. Let’s just say she was not too happy when we told her! She cried for an hour straight! So this is all I could get from her.”
