My Little Sister is 44

Karen Lynn Shepherd, isn't she a doll? I thought she was.
I think we're 2,3 and 4 in this Mother's Day shot.

Thousand Pines, I think it's about 1982, not a good shot of any of us. But funny
Christmas 2005, the five Shepherds

One of my favorite pics because we look alike. We don't always.

We had so much fun being pregnant at the same time... TWICE, actually 3 times, but the first was further apart. The second, a day apart, the third, a week apart! This is 2001

2005, the happy Ray family, still going strong.
Could it be true? We're well into our forties Kee-Ray!

I am blessed to have her in my life, and her husband and boys. And they don't live TOO terribly far away. At least they're in Arizona.

She is a wonderful listener. And will be soon completing her masters in family counseling. I'd highly recommend her! When I think back on our childhood (we had a brother between us) I regret many things. I know I could have loved her more and been a 'friend' to her. Hindsight is 20/20. We learn along the way. But I hope I can teach that to my girls.
Today at The Farm at South Mountain for lunch. What a gorgeous day.

My sweet sis! I couldn't have asked for a better big sister to watch over me, and help to point me in the right direction! I have many, many wonderful memories of us growing up together, acting out the Partridge family, and making our bunkbed into a bus. Even if you always did get to be Laurie Partridge, we had great times! I love you lots!....great pics too. wow.
