20: I was born at Harrisburg Hospital. The day after I was born my Nana and Papa brought my brother Owen in to meet me. He was only 2 years old. He tried to give me his sippy cup. My Mom and Dad said I could only drink from a bottle.He kissed me on the top of the head and said,''My Abbie''.
22: One of my favorite memories at my new house is the water battles that my brother and I would have. Usually Owen and I would use squirt guns for the water battle. But one day Owen decided that he would use the hose. I was never expecting it until I got drenched. So I had to get him back. I snuck around the house trying very hard not to be seen by Owen. As soon as Owen put the hose down I ran out, picked it up and sprayed him. Now we were both soaked, and my Mom took our picture.
24: When I was 6 years old,I got my first cat and so did my brother. My cat's name is Duke, and Owen's was Squirt. They were brothers. Our family got them from our cousins cat Shanne. It was Shanne's 3rd litter of kittens. The best part was we did not have to pay for them since our cousins gave them to us. When we brought them home it was late October so they had to sleep inside the house with us. Once it was past Winter and into Spring they slept in the garage. They were still kittens then, so we took them around our backyard to show them where their home was.They were both at home happy when Squirt got hit by a car. Everything is better now because we have a new cat who was also our cousins. They had to move to Washington D.C so we got to keep him. Even though I miss Squirt we now have 2 cats again.
26: When my Dad was little,about 4-6 years old, his Saint Bernard, Duke would pull him up the street on his sled. Then my Dad would sled down the street,and Duke would try to race him down to the bottom so he could pull him up the street again.
28: WARNING My Dad was only three years old at the time and had very bad hearing.My Dad was at his Gramma's house for Thanksgiving with other family members. When my Mommom said you might want to move there is a draft coming through the door.Then my Dad jumped up and said hurry up guys there is a giraffe coming through the door.!
30: One day my Dad,Aunt Becca,Aunt Karen,and my Aunt Amy were sitting at the counter eating breakfast. My poppop wanted to take them to a movie. He wanted it to be a surprise. When he spelled it out to my Mommom, he spelled it wrong. He spelled it Grissley Adams instead of Grizzley Adams.So my dad being only 4 at the time said '' Daddy it's G-R-I-Z-Z-L-E-Y A-D-A-M-S with 2 z's Not with2 s's". From then on no one could spell anything else in front of my Dad.
32: This is my neighbors puppy Kane. Kane's owner is one of my best friends. Her name is Brooke. One day when Kane was outside going to the bathroom he did something that he was not supposed to do. Kane ate 5 rocks,1 big stick,and a plastic toy. When Kane ate them he started to not feel the best. Every time that Brooke's family tried to pet Kane he cowered in the corner. So they took Kane to the vet and that is how they found out what he ate. Kane had to have surgery but he is okay now. Now they know to keep a good eye on Kane.
34: This is my dog Sammi. One day she had a big puppy fit. She ran around and around the living room. Pretty soon we found out why. Earlier on that day, when my mom was doing laundry, she had a cup of coffee beside her. As she went to go put her laundry away she heard this slurping noise. When my Mom turned around she saw Sammi already half done with the cup of coffee. That was why Sammi had the Puppy fit.
