Sister Sister

I had a question on Formspring asking me to tell a little about my siblings.

I thought that was a good idea.
(especially since I seriously am slacking on ideas lately!)

So, I would like to introduce you to My Family:

(Dustin and Andrea took this picture in December. It's our most recent family picture!)

BreeAnn and Blake:

BreeAnn and Blake were married December 13th 2008,
a little less than two months after Avery was born.

They were both SOO good through the birth and very senstive during my emotional breakdowns.

Blake is the best brother-in-law to ever exist.
BreeAnn and I are only 11 months apart (EXACTLY)
it's so wierd how incredibely different our lives are.

She's the perfect role model and I'm so grateful to have both of them in my life.
They have a blog and I love it.

Emilee is my best friend.
I go to her whenever I have a bad day
and she deals with all of my crap.

when I'm in a bad mood,
she just smiles and knows not to take it personally when I take it out on her.

She listens to me complain when I have a hard day.
She is the perfect person to go to when you just need to VENT.
I love her and can count on her for anything.

She is the peacemaker in the home.
She is 18 years old and I can't wait for her to graduate so we can move into an apartment together...if she doesn't leave me for Utah State that is! :(


Kaitlyn just turned 15, but looks way older.

She's got STYLE and everything everything looks good on her.
She could leave home in Pj's after just getting out of bed and still look good.

She is definitely the Princess of the home and knows how to get what she wants! 

She is the best babysitter out there and is great with kids!
I don't like the fact that she'll be in high school soon OR the fact that she'll be driving in a year.
Everyone drive with Caution as of February of 2011!! :)

I love her and wish she would just stay the same little 4 year old girl that yelled at everything that she ran into (it was hilarious).
She can't grow up.
She's the only little girl left.

I had the hardest time telling her about my pregnancy of any of my other siblings.
She was 13 at the time and I knew I was the big sister she was supposed to be looking up to.
I hope that she can learn from my mistakes and not be like me!


Dallin is my oldest little brother. 

I noticed as of last Sunday, that  is no longer my little kid brother...and that's scary.
I swear he's got a mustache almost!

Dallin is a good little brother and a good big brother for the two little brothers.

He's a gentleman and the girl he ends up marrying better know he's got 4 older sister judging her every move! She better treat him right.

Dallin is a serious BOY.
Most of the things he does grosses me out.
He is good with his money and at age 13, he already has great work Ethic!

I just gotta say that the girl that he chooses to marry, will be one lucky girl!
He has a great testimony and is a true leader.

I love my big little brotherr!!


There are three words that can Describe Casey perfectly:
Dennis the Mennis

no joke.
in fact, I almost wrote that for his name on accident!

Casey is the funniest, cutest trouble maker that exists.
he says the funniest things.

I would tell you some,
but they're just not the same unless he says it...and some of them are kind of mean.
Talk about getting mad at him, while working as hard as you can to keep from busting out in laughter!

Whenever we go out to dinner,
and he likes what he gets,
he makes sure to ask the waiter/waitress if he can have the recipe.

Casey is currently working on acting more enthused when he see's me.
Usually he says "Hiii Andeee..." and he sounds like Eyore on Winnie the Pooh.
He does NOT sound happy to see me.

So now, after practicing with him a LOT 
whenever he sees me,
he tries his hardest to sound excited.

more like, HI ANDEE! with a grin on his face.
It's working for the most part.

I just had to add that in there.
cause it's funny how hard it is for him.

I love this kid.
I don't know how I lived without him before.

Yet another reason I love Adoption.


Oh look, even another reason Adoption is Amazing!

Joey is seriously the center of our home.
He gets whatever he wants from whoever he wants.

It's hard NOT to spoil him.
He's SOO funny and has the greatest sense of humor already.


He was in my parents room watching cartoons one day
and I was babysitting him.

My dad walked in and went straight to his room.
When he got there he saw Joey and asked "where's mom Joe?"

without even looking away from the tv he says "She broke up with you."
my dad wasn't expecting that so he starts laughing and asked "why?"
and still, looking at the tv, he says "because I told her to."

So my dad called my mom and was telling her that story when Joey finally looks away from the T.V. and says "Dad, it was just a joke!"

He's so funny.
if I'm having a bad day, he ALWAYS knows how to cheer me up.
He's so cute. I LOVE HIMM!!
