I knew that if any family could pull off the mustache look, it would be this family. I was right.
Hilarious! Without a moment's hesitation, they tore into the pack that I brought along with me and claimed their style. I love how John William's is a little off center. You can bet this picture will show up in a prominent place on my website.
This family is my "other" family. I lived with them for three years while I was in college, when the oldest two were the ages that my kidlets are now. They fed and housed me, entertained me (obviously), and considered me part of their family. I learned a lot from Peter and Mary. Once the kids were in bed, we talked many a night. They challenged me and believed in my heart and are true, true friends.
I love their kids.
There is Sarah...gorgeous and growing up.
Josh, who I had to follow around for a while to get a normal look on his face. This guy is always messing around.
Sweet Hannah with her soft heart. I was blessed to attend her home birth, the only birth (besides my own) that I have even been at. It was that great experience that made me want to have home birth for my kids too.
Then there is John William who is a few months older than Ruby and has more personality than you could shake a stick at. Peter has been talking about an arranged marriage between him and Ruby. Who knows?
This cute look came on his face when I asked him who is funny and he said, "My brother."
Somtimes I ask siblings some questions: Who is more like your dad? Who gets in the most trouble? Who gets the loudest? I love the expression of denial on Josh's face, hilarity on the girls' faces, and John William who is pointing to himself. I don't even know what the question was to this one. How much more "them" is this picture than four siblings sitting perfectly in a row, every hair in place.
I love you guys. Next year I will bring the fake, ugly teeth, and Sarah, you will love to wear them...no, don't deny it...you will.
