Thankful for Siblings........

Growing up I had sisters and brothers around me all the time.... I remember Christmas's at our house being so packed from all the family and extended family due to marriages and grandkids.....

I have 5 sisters and 2 brothers! :-) So i'm one of 8 siblings! :-) My dad and mom were both married before and had 2 children each from their marriages and then they married each other and had 4 children.

Here are some pics of us all. :-)

Family picture from when I was about 4 or 5 years old.. :-) Kim, Karen, Kelly, Krista, Kassie and Josh.. :-) Then my mom and dad of course!

My oldest 2 siblings Jenny and John

Me and my little brother Joshua (he and I were best buds growing up!)

My wedding. My side of the family group picture.... I managed to find something for every sibling to do in my wedding... how great it was to have all my siblings/nieces/nephews etc... there with me on that special day!

Christmas this year with some of my siblings and 2 of my nieces (ya.. we're a bit crazy!)

My siblings are my best friends... and honestly I think they are the truest friends. They care about you and what your going through even if they are going through something as well. They always see the best in you no matter what, and you can always count on them for encouragment and good advice when needed! Sometimes other friends can get caught up with their own lives, or things that might be coming between you... but siblings are for life! I hope each and every one of my siblings know how much I love them and treasure them!!!!
