For Mom and Us and Our Empty Picture Frames

Sometimes Gracefully Sisters Sometimes Gracefully Sisters

These two gems are my baby sisters. I’ve mentioned them before on Sometimes Gracefully, and I wanted to share this little selection of “sister pictures” that we took for a gift idea we’re planning on giving to our mom. I could ramble on and on about these two beauties, and I’m convinced that I have two special chambers of my heart reserved just for them. Sisters are so incredibly marvelous. Talk about an overwhelming blessing.

But anyways, mushy sister stuff aside, I love the products and photo albums you can create on Shutterfly, so we decided that we’d see what we could throw together for our mom! It wasn’t too much of a burden taking pictures. We were trained to smile for the camera at an early age, thanks to our mother, so we had a fun time goofing around and making sure our hair was out of our faces. It’s always good to have a sister/best friend around for things like that. πŸ˜‰

Since we moved into our apartment almost one fullΒ yearΒ ago, Darrin and I still have empty picture frames lying around each room! So I’m pretty excited to finally fill those frames with faces and smiles and family. I mean, one full year of empty picture frames?Β YIKES.Β Bring on the photo prints.

Both of my sisters are down in Iowa rocking the college life, but they come home next week for Christmas break, and you can bet we’ll be taking some more pictures, workin’ a couple of ugly Christmas sweaters, and teasing the baby of the family {she’s the one with the straight hair in the middle}! Anyone else as anxious as I am to have a break and spend time with family? Just a few more weeks! Almost. There.

Have a wonderful Thursday! πŸ™‚
