Day 2: A picture of you and the person you have been closest with the longest


I know this should be just one person, and the longest would obviously be my sister Danielle, but you know how sisters are, and so to be fair I am choosing them both.  Ahhh, the infamous 'standing on the fireplace' pictures at Grandma and Grandpa Steibel's house.  (Oh how I loved those dresses)!!
Danielle, well, she was like my butler when I was little.  Why do it myself when I have my big sister who will do it all for me.  Yeah, that's totally how I was.  And there are still some things today that I make her do for me.  Because well, she's the oldest.  But she is awesome.  So independent, so educated, has such a good head on her shoulders and she knows what she wants.  Heck she hires and fire people every day like it's nothing.  If I had to do that I would be drowning myself in beers every night.  Geesh.  I hate that she lives so far away, bu it's only two hours.  I know, it could be worse.  But it's always nice when she comes home.
Lacie, well, I don't remember much about her being born.  Lacie, well she used to tell everyone she remembers when she was born.  lol.  Ha, love ya Lac.  She was always the cute one who always got her way.  Of course, she was the baby.  But we love her non the less.  She has such a free spirit and still to this day, everyone loves Lacie.  I envy that about her.  She has such a big heart.
They would both tell you that I am the favorite by far, but it's not true........promise.
The three of us have been through a lot together.  Many ups and downs but we are as thick as thieves.  Break my sisters heart, I'll break your neck.  Humiliate my sister, I'll humiliate you 10 times worse.  That's the relationship we have.  I'm the hard ass sister, but I wouldn't have it any other way.
We have spent many a nights taking care of each other while a singe mother of three worked her second job for the day.  We can read each other like the back of our hands.  We finish each others sentences.  We wear each others clothes.  We all use our hands to talk and we all talk so fast.  Sometimes I don't even think we finish a train of thought before we jump right into the next thing. 
I don't think there has ever been a day when I wished I had a brother. 
I wouldn't trade my sisters for the world.
And one more 'standing on the fireplace' picture, just for fun!

Haha...what is it about a fireplace that screams "use me as a background!"? Aren't sisters great? I remember my sister doing a lot for me too...like cleaning my room when I refused to do it so I wouldn't get in trouble.
