TWO YEARS! It has been two whole years since all of my family has been together in one place. With 2 parents, 5 siblings, 3 great brother/sister-in laws, and 6 nieces and nephews, spread out all over the western United States, it has been hard to pull ALL of us together in one Zip Code. However, with a little magic and a lot of planning, we all got to be together for some of the Holidays in Houston, Texas.
We had to take advantage of the opportunity to do family portraits! Especially since the last ones we took were at MY WEDDING! So gathered everyone up, lined up the 16 outfits to see if they “coordinate”, planned times and a location, grabbed a tripod and we were good to go!
All five of us kid! There is an 18 year spread from the oldest to the youngest.
My Parents! I realize they are a lot smarter and a lot funnier now that I have grown up and out of the teenage years. It was fun to pose my parents in my cute “engagement” poses and imaged them back on their own wedding day as a Bride and Groom.
If we start at the oldest, We have my sister Tiffiny, her husband Dave, and their kids.
I have to brag about my sister because she is AMAZING! After being married, getting an interior design degree, having three kids, she decided she wanted to be a doctor! Now she in right in the middle of medical school! She is the perfect example that you can do anything you want in life if you want it bad enough and work hard enough to get it!
Here is my talented and beautiful little (but taller) sister Katelin! She is in college, living the life! Busy with school, work, friends, etc. Not to mention she is insanely talented and has a million interests and hobbies. She loves to backpack, horseback riding, she speaks Cantonese, and plays the piano. She makes me miss all the spontaneous fun of college.
And let’s not forget the 11 year old Steven. He is the reason my parents will either stay young or have gray hair. He is the only member of my family to play in the school orchestra and NOT band. He picked up the cello which my nephew Cardin calls “a big guitar”.
All the nieces and nephews! (Now, I understand Steve technically is Uncle Steve to this crew- but he loves playing and wrestling with all of them like brothers and sisters we had to throw him in the picture!)
I hope you enjoyed the holidays with your loved ones and getting to know us all a little more!
