In honor of my little sister's BIG 40th birthday this weekend, I'd like to do what all good sisters do...
Share embarrassing pictures of her as a baby!
And as an adolescent.
And in swimsuits.
And picking her nose.
Okay, I'm only kidding about the swimsuit part. I fear paybacks too much to risk that!
So, please indulge me a little today. This is my Sissy we're talking about. And I have loved her with all my heart for...well, for 40 years now!!
I have to tell ya--Ginny (left) was an ADORABLE baby and little girl! We all called her the "Gerber baby" back then. I mean--look at those cheeks!!
I'd like to entitle this next section: Sisters All Dressed up for Church
And what would junior high and high school be...without hair products?
Ginny would have been 15 here. I was about to graduate from high school. I think we should entitle this picture, and the next few: White Rain Hairspray
This picture makes me want to break out into song..."Sisters, sisters, tra la la la la la...Sisters..." (Sorry--neither one of us ever remembers the words. But, we can sang that tune like a charm!)
Please take a moment of silence for the Liz Claiborne purses. *sigh*
Well, I can't let my brother get off the hook with embarrassing pictures, now could I? I mean--he WAS (and IS) the older brother who picked on us relentlessly. Although, I must say that he was always sweeter to Ginny than to me.
That might have had something to do with her being nicer to him! And also cleaning his room for free.
Speaking of eyebrows, I'm not going to let my brother-in-law off the hook, now am I???
The very first time Ginny brought John home to meet everyone, I found funny pictures of Ginny growing up--and placed them all around the family room. Ginny was so mad at me, and was rushing around trying to hide the pictures. But, I have to say--her future husband sure thought it was funny!
I'd like to entitle this next picture: The Skinniest Any Of Us Will Probably Ever Be.
Before I finish embarrassing my Sissy, I should show you her DARLING kids. Love 'em.
