Today I Am Spotlighting My Sister, Rachel.

This post is dedicated to my little sis, Rach.  Why?  Because.  She's awesome.  She Ash's most favorite person in the world.  After me of course.  :)  Anyways, Rachel's goin' through a little phase right now.  She doesn't think she's photogenic and is a bit of a stinker about getting her picture taken.  She says it has something to do with her smile.  **gasp**  What?!?!  Her teeth and smile are perfect, folks.  I'm pretty sure I went through a don't-you-dare-point-a-picture-in-my-direction-or-I-will-strangle-you phase.  Luckily it didn't last long.  I think I decided I was pretty good lookin' after all.  **laugh**  Well, I want to show Rachel that SHE IS beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeautiful!  And photogenic.  And has an amazing smile.  And the camera loves her.  And she's got adorable dimples.  Unfortunately, most of these pics aren't super recent because of the before mentioned anti-camera behavior. 

This is how most of the pictures taken of Rachel look these days.  Hehe.

This is happy, cute, little Rachel about 3 or 4 years ago.

And here she is with our sister Molly (again, about 3 or 4 years ago) - all dressed up for fun.  Sorry Moo.  :)  And where did Rachel's other arm go?  Hm....  Pretty girls though.  Even the tutu-head.  **snicker**

I looooooove this picture.  I don't know why we don't have more pics of this dynamic duo.  Oh yeah.  It's because only ONE of them likes the camera.  For now.  :)  This was taken July '09.

See that big smile?  Beautiful.  And she's smiling because she's in Forks.  :) 

Playing on the windy sands of La Push Beach.  This pic and the one above were taken a year ago this month.

Ok.  She's not smiling here.  Camera shy at this point.  But I just adore how she's hugging my baby so close.  She was helping me with my girls on this day in June.

Most recent.  Sort of a smile.  I think I already posted this photo.  Here's a closer-up.  July of this year. 

The best, most recent I could get of Ash and her favorite auntie.  So cute.  This was taken on Monday.

Sorry it's so blurry.  Poor point and click skills on my part.  But it certainly backs up my claims, doesn't it?

So, come on y'all, leave a little comment love so Rach can know that her family isn't out to lunch.  She really is eye candy.  :)  And that's just the outside.  Her insides are even more squeezable.  She's got a great voice.  She's the next baby whisperer.  She can knit anything.  She's got quite the talent for colors.  She's an awesome cleaner and organizer (when she wants to be).  Oh, hi Rachel!  Don't hate me.  This is what big sisters are supposed to do.  ;)

Oh-Kay Girly... I dont think you realize how beautiful you are! SHEESH! YOu are very lovely. Smile, skin, all of it! Embrace it and run with it... You know, when you are beautiful inside, it shows on the outside!

She is such a pretty girl! She has nothing to be shy about! Isn't it nice when your kids get super attached to one of your siblings? Andrew will only cuddle with my younger brother and its been that way since he was a tiny baby. Its cute, but I'll admit I'm slightly jealous.

She's SO gorgeous, it's really not fair.

She's BEAUTIFUL! Wow! I'm jealous! She has a great smile. No idea what she's talking about! And it looks like she's going to be a super awesome mom some day! :)

Mrs. K said...

Wow, she is beautiful. And I'm totally not kidding when I say that. I hope the camera shyness is a phase that she will grow out of because she is gorgeous. You seem to have a great family, isn't that the best? Anyway, thanks for dropping by yesterday. I wanted to blog but I didn't because of my hubby's b-day. :)
