1: Life brings simple pleasures to us every day. It is up to us to make them wonderful memories. CathyAllen
2: Remember when... - making pancakes on Sunday mornings - ganging up on babysitters - sharing a bed in the tent trailer and talking to each other in our sleep - sleep overs and the draw-on-the-back game - the diary you wrote for me while I was in Finland - staying up late to watch movies/TV shows on the lap top in bed - singing country songs with the dishes - visits to Victoria - nights out with the girls and the road trip to Nana's after a week together
4: Christmas 2008
6: All things grow better with love.
8: Campbell River, Summer 2009
9: Sister, we've been there through life's sorrow and pain But together we have always endured the strain | We've argued and bickered and made each other mad But if you weren't my sister, life would be so sad We've cried till we laughed and laughed till we cried Sometimes for no reason we didn't even know why | When we're not together our bond is just as strong Because we are sisters we know when something is wrong We've whispered our deepest secrets only sisters could share I love my sister dearly because she really cares | So whether we are together or we are far apart Emma, you're my sister, my friend and forever in my heart.
10: I always look forward to our sister haircuts. I can not even remember the last time that I got my hair cut without you! I think it is only so fun because of the photoshoots that we get to have afterwards. It is fun to dress each other up and discover new locations for backdrops to show off our fancy 'dos. And if we did not do the photoshoots then I would not have pictures to make you this book!

12: Laugh when i feel like it Cry when i feel like it That's just how my life is That's how it goes Oh watch me go I'm a happy girl | Like a Country Music Song
13: And i’ve come to know That the world won’t change Just ’cause I complain Let the axis twirl I’m a happy girl
14: Laugh | Live | Love
15: I love the way you make me smile :)
16: I like it when we buy thrift store dresses and pose for photoshoots. I am amazed every time by how beautiful you are. It doesn't seem to matter what the dresses look like or where we are, as long as we are together we create something magical!
17: Summer 2009
18: Summer 2009 down on the water was one of my favorites! Running over the rocks in the too-big gumboots and trying to stop Kylla from jumping in on the shot.
19: Nana was so embarrassed and sure that her neighbors were watching with their binoculars as we frolicked in the water!
20: I know there have been days when you have actually wanted to push me off the cliff...
21: We have our differences (some of which probably stem from similarities). No one knows how to push my buttons like you do and we really know how to fight! But when it comes down to it, you are my sister and I will always love you with all of my heart.
22: A family is pieced together with hope and faith. A family is quilted and bound with love and grace.
