Sister's Day

My oldest sister lives away from us so we don't get the chance to all be together very often so this summer my sister Starla planned a sister's day complete with an agenda, timeline, lunch, maps and a surprise.  

We don't need much to entertain us..... if you remember from a few of my posts we like to pose with the mannequins in the store and there happen to be 5 of them.  We almost always are in order without even trying.   

We laughed so hard during this and stopped a lady to take our picture.... all of a sudden a head store person came and asked if she could take our picture for their website...... Oh no we're shy!!! 

Our surprise was changed to plan B surprise and it was a blast.   We usually end up buying the same things, liking the same stuff, paying for it with the same currency, eating the same stuff... we are so much alike it's scary.  We all laugh a lot, we are all goofy and talk a lot to people we don't even know. 

The girl who was helping us in the store was a chatterbug and blonde, she asked lots of questions about us and laughed just as loud as us.  We told her there were 11 of us and she immediately said "can I be number 12"  Yes, yes you can.

We referred to her as #12 the entire time.  

The store teaches you how to place your rubber bands to get the design you want and you get to chose the colors.  

#12 was a big help with picking colors for us.  There are so many it's hard to decide and know what should go with what.  #12 assured us you can't make a mistake.  

Our nephew's wedding reception was in a few weeks and he had a tye dye theme so the sweatshirt would be perfect for the chilling night by the fire pit.  

Any chance you can get a picture with all your sister do it....... it doesn't have to be perfect it's the memory you will have not that the exposure or focus was perfect.  Sometimes the most unperfect photos are the most treasured.  

You have to take your item home in plastic and wash it out in 24 hours so us sisters were not together for the washing out part but I can tell you our group messaging was blowing up that night.  I was taking newborn pics and I finally had to stop and silence my phone.

Here is mine fresh from the rinsing.

This Sunday Sharon came home again, her last trip until next year so we all bought our shirts and finally got our picture.  

Remember what I said about not perfect.... we sisters have a really hard time getting a picture with all of us looking, not acting goofy and in this case Gayle blinking.  This was the best one out of all of mine that my niece took. 

So being the Certified Head and Eye Swapper Surgeon I pulled her into photoshop and gave her Sharon's eyes.

Nope doens't do it.... 

I gave her my eyes.  

My head is way fatter than Gayles so I had to skinny them up on her...... I think I bust out laughing 20 times tonight and poor John thinks I might just be losing it.

Okay let's go with the non perfect memory photos.

Our brother Wally and his wife Elaine needed tyedye for their sons wedding so they headed to the store and had them create their wedding attire.  They chatted with the girl at the store and all of a sudden 
Store girl -  are you my brother?  
Wally - I don't think so
Store girl - no I think I'm sister #12
Wally - {confused}
Store girl explained the sisters trip that Wally didn't know about and Elaine sends all us sister a text with Wally met his other sister

I couldn't match up DiAnn's cell pictures for Gayles eyes because they are too different than mine but let's just say the non perfect happened again.

And again.....  This could go on for about 12 more but I won't make you suffer through them.

I love my non perfect sisters and even #12.
