my sister, Michelle

This is my sister, Michelle. She’s a fabulous little thing, no?

18

She and I were the typical middle children growing up…

you know, tried to push each other down the stairs and poke the other’s stink eye out with pointy objects…

and now we love each other like the mother effing best of the besties this world has ever seen.

Michelle loves dogs…

22

and beer…

and this little sweet patoot…

19

and this weird looking dirty guy….

21

and all of her sisters, even though one of us really needs a tan….

One day, Michelle met a studly Army guy…

23

this Army guy…

26

and he impressed her with his dance moves…

15

took her out even when he was really really sleepy…

24

shared his ravioli with her…

10

terrorized the town with her…

didn’t take off running after meeting our family…

and made a good stand-in Becky when desperate times called for an army strong sister….er brother…

25

Pretty soon, they were inseparable.

So they planned a wedding as Julie and I got fatter….

12

and shortly after these munchkins were born,

Michelle sniffed his nose during their first dance,…

while I breastfed Julie’s baby through my bridesmaid dress…

It was happily ever after for these colorful crazies…

It wasn’t long before they decided that they wanted babies. Michelle tried to steal ours but it was a no-go…

11

So they tried on their own for a very long time. And they tried and they tried and they tried. They tried everything they could think of…

They tried bubbles…
