"uhhh...don't let that strange lady pick me up!"
(i imagine that is what she was thinking in her mind's eye)

ok, so other siblings of Aaron and I, please don't be mad/sad/bugged/etc. if i don't do the same thing for each of you. It's all about timing here, people. It is Saturday morning, Aaron just left to Houston to participate in the Olympics (yeah, he's a champ), and i am pregnant (aka with child) waiting for this baby to arrive. ok? ok. Timing is everything... and time is what I have right now, so don't be haters. *****

It just so happens to be my darling sister's birthday. She is turning twenty and I can't believe there are four children in my family all in their twenties. Now, if that doesn't make my parents feel old, I don't know what would. :) jk roland and denise.

Here are some pictures I happened to find on my hard drive. Oh, and when you have a father who LOVES posting embarrassing pictures on his website, it is amazing the goodies you can find! YESSssss! Without further delay---- bEcCa, hApPy bIrThDaY!!

we got twinner hats. little house on the prairie style... love it.

what can we say? we don't listen to EVERYthing our parents say.
this was our punishment.

i don't think becca has ever seen these pictures i took of her before her dance...
hence, that is why there are a few of them. (my dress, thanks).

"can I get a what? what?" thanks, awkward arms.

becca always looks to me for guidance. she wants to be just like me
(as shown here. this is me demonstrating how to eat Chinese cuisine.
See, before my instruction, she was eating like a barbarian. wow, she's so lucky I'm around).

again, she is so lucky I am around to show her the ropes of the world.
(this is me pinning on her date's corsage)

i took this picture. she is STILL in love with this hat.
i am STILL in love with the glasses.

i can't believe she got a scooter. sigh.
but, she looks pretty darn cute. (thanks to my skirt and coral shirt). hA!

she has such a funky style. darling, just darling.
(thanks to MY bracelets, converse shoes and NO thanks to my mom's old dress & fruity scarf.)

i'm the one who totally got her into the racing scene.
we are BIG racers and win every event we enter. it's hard being so fast, you know?
(shhh...becca, don't tell, no one needs to know that we finished dead last
because we walked the entire way. ok? our secret.)

If you want to know what a rad gal she is, feel free to check out her blog.
She is really funny and makes me laugh super hard.
thanks becca, you are the bomb-diggity.

p.s. oh, and yes, people, that is HER darling baby picture at the top. in case you were curious.

annie and jared said...

oh and did i mention that the picture of you guys kneeling in the field made me laugh soooo hard!
p.s. wasn't trying to scare you about the delivery thing, you will be fine, mine was abnormally aweful. yours will be wonderful!

Hi, this is Lindsey Walker, Dan's wife. Your blog is so funny! Thanks for the advice, it is helpful. It is such a scary/exciting decision to make. Do you like living in Texas, do you think the money-saving choice was the best one? We are just so confused and want to make the best choice!

those pictures will go down in history are some of the most classic i have ever seen! ps- i have been using bomb diggity lately...maybe we are on some weird same wave length that stretches from tx to ny...or i stole it from you 5 years ago when we lived together. either way, i love you...when does the babe come. soon?

The Cook Family said...
