My BFF: Jami


This is my younger sister.
Jamilyn.
She's married to Zeb.
They have two kids: Brooke and Zayne.
Brooke is a firecracker.
And at random calls me mom.
How could I not love her?
And Zayne is cuddly, smiley & patient.
And also very loveable.
Jami and I have forever been great buddies.
When we were little we played a constant game of "friends".
It lasted at least two years.
We had no names in the game.
We instead just referred to each other as "friend".
Until dad questioned our games structure.
Then we came up with names.
I was Kristie.
She was Megan.
Jami's not afraid to take charge.
Sometimes I call her bossy.
But in a good way!
She's also not afraid to say what she thinks.
Or how she feels.
I love that about her.
She's honest.And sincere.
She's also very compassionate.
When we were little, mom promised a treat to everyone that ate all their peas.
Alan didn't like peas.
I don't think Jami did either.
However, Jami ate all her peas AND all Alan's peas.
Jami worries about her siblings.
About what their doing.
And how their feeling.
And, if their happy.
Sometimes I will call Jami on the phone to tell her something specific.
We'll talk.
For 45 minutes or so.
We'll talk about EVERYTHING.
Except the one thing that I called her for in the first place.
So I'll call back.
And the circle starts over.
Jami has perfect freckles, short, stubby eyelashes and a tall and slender frame.
Unlike Jessica, Jami has NO bubble.
It doesn't matter if there are 12 on the couch or 2.
She'll always sit as close to you as humanly possible.
She gives the best foot rubs and shoulder massages.
She's double-jointed.
She can touch her feet to her head {and her shoulders}.
Jami's funny.
Sometimes crude.
But still very funny.
She loves to make people laugh.
Jami used to "moon" us on a daily basis.
And she'd flip E-VERYBODY off.
Well except the Chinese. :)
Jami and I were roommates one summer.
Whenever I hear "Shakira" I'm reminded of that time.
It was my last summer spent "single"!
And I wouldn't have rather spent it any other way.
Jami's candid, energetic, comical and kindhearted.
Although I'm older, I have learned way more from Jami then I could have ever taught her.
I admire her.
I'm so glad she's my little sister.


When I grow up, I want to be as tall and slender as Jami.

Jami in one word...
Genuine.
I love you Jami.
Thanks for being you!





And my favorite picture of all. 
One of these things is not like the others...

You guys are all so photogenic, especially Jamie. It's like the camera pulls her tongue right out.

Hooray for Jamie! The other night when I was driving my head light went out, and whether or not it actually partains to it it reminded me of how Jaime (yeah, I'm gonna spell her name different ways) would hit the ceiling and tell us to take our clothes off. She IS so genuine. I love it. I have a funny picture with her laying on the cement outside the highschool and of course her tongue is out. Erin was right, that camera just pulls it right out.
