I think I should do a post about each of my siblings. This will take up 8 posts and I think will be pretty fun. Sarah is the eldest. She is 6 years older than me. I didn't really know her that well when we were younger. I remember that she and Adam(my next sibling) were always buds and would sometimes gang up on us a little. I guess that's what big brothers and sisters are for. They always called my cousin Crabby Abbie and would chant "fly like a butterfly" to make us mad. I don't really even remember why that made us mad. She has very small ears and I remember her telling me that mine were big. I do have big lobes, they are going to make me an ugly old person. Anyway, I remember thinking she was really cool and wanting to listen to her music when we lived in California. I didn't really get to know Sarah until I was much older. Now we are great friends.
I think of Sarah as: a great mother, beautiful, strong willed, funny, creative-a fabulous scrapbooker and card maker, thoughtful, in great physical shape, stylish, sarcastic, picture shy, and so much more. She is someone I love to talk to, watch a movie with, eat food with, drink coke with, laugh at our kids with, and just be around. She makes me feel like I am special and funny.She is very supportive and encouraging. I remember her writing me a note wishing me luck before a track meet. She always tried to make it to my meets, she even took a small plane to Tucson to watch me at the state meet my Junior year. Not a lot of my family came to my meets, my dad would always try to make it, but I really thought it was cool that Sarah did too. She was one of the only ones at my graduation too. I am so pleased we will get to hang out more very soon and our kids will get to be friends. Sarah I love you and am glad to have you for a big sister.
