Wow-I’ve gots lots. But I will just list a few.

One that stands out, sadly is when we were tweens, I believe, and we were home alone suppose to be doing our chores. You were on the computer and I wanted on (I think) and so I slapped you. I felt Sooooo bad that I offered to do your chores AND make you Rice Krispie Treats. You took me up on both offers and didn’t tell mom. Thanks. Sorry again about that!

Another thing that always stands out was playing alligator in the bath tub, not just our room. We’d start the water and then climb up the sides and the first one to get water on them was out. How very unsafe of us!

Remember when we use to light candles out in the play house and “roast” marshmallows over them and also chips? Also very unsafe…………hopefully mom doesn’t read our “confessions.”

Another thing I will always remember is the lady at Albertsons. I know you know exactly who I am referring to!! The lady with basically no upper lip, HUGE teeth, and a slight lisp who always, always, always, week after week, asked if we were twins! And we’d make fun of her for the rest of the day with our lip pushed up and our best imitation of a lisp. And mom would always tell us to stop and to be nice.

Remember how we’d tease Steve about pyramids until he’d cry to mom? And tease Cath about how she was born? And the songs we would make up about Matt/Smote and his girlfriends? And how I use to think you were the worst driver in the world, especially after you ran over the curb at the bank drive through? Sorry, but I am dad’s daughter.

Remember how I called you a slut jokingly and mom thought I was serious and told me I’d be grounded if I ever said that again? Then we always called each other that.

(you took all the good ones on my blog about fire and our club!) Anyways-there are just a few memories. I’m sure I’ll think of the best one as soon as I post this.

"Peanuts, popcorn, candy apples!!" My best memories of you are sadly all volleyball memories. The bus rides, and the bench warmer club. "Who's your daddy?" I remember Sheila would get so mad at us in practice and we would try so hard to be serious but that just made it worse. I also remember one practice we were waiting around for something and I had the ball cart on one side of the net and you (I think) were serving from the other side and I would try to catch the balls in the cart. I had to go pretty fast to get one and the wheels on the cart couldn't keep up and the cart tipped over and I landed right on top of the cart and balls went everywhere.

Well I'm just going to do my first memory of meeting you. Daniel and I came over for a game night, and I believe we played several games...correct me if I'm wrong, but one game was Hokie 6. I remember thinking I wasn't too bad at speed games, but you and Daniel gave me a run for my money! You are "speedy quick" as my nieces and nephews say. Too fast for my blood...maybe we'll have to have a rematch someday...it's been far too long!

You and Amanda are really busted now. I think it might be best if I took your children and raised them since you obviously can't be trusted. The roasting marshmellows is too much.
I have a nice memory to share. you. It was when you were a little girl and fell asleep in the car on the way home from some short family trip. When we got home and I went to wake you up you said, "I know it looks like I'm asleep and it feels like I'm asleep, but I'm really not asleep."

ok it was back in 03 I had been home from my mission a couple months and you and ben were going at it pretty hard core, i.e. courting. Yes, I remember it well... You were at such a tender age, 17 if I recall correctly. Then it happened... my first gift for you, besides my oldest brother... A book, a book filled with magic and wonder and ideas ;~) I don't know the impact and indeed how would you measure such a thing, but I like to think that it helped put one more piece of the Andros family picture in place. Well that was the first and luckily not the last gift that you've received from me :~)

p.s. What will Santa bring this year?
