Favorite Sister Memory:

Meeg: one time when Nat was about 7 years old she was pretending to be a ghost by hiding underneath a blanket walking around in our living room, arms outstretched. Our brother came up behind her and pinched her so hard she screamed and ran head first into the corner of the wall. She had to get stitches and she still has an eyebrow scar to prove it. 

Allie: Meeg and I have always had the same accidents happen to us and illnesses and often find ourselves walking out of our bedrooms wearing the same clothes. One time I fell down a hill and scraped my right knee. Meeg ran to get my Mom, who was at the bottom of the hill, and fell on her way down scraping her knee in the exact same spot. 

Nat: playing Kick the Can and always wanting to go to the neighbors house for Kool Aid, cinnamon sugar toast (since we couldn't have processed sugar at home), and Power Rangers
