"Twins"

In keeping with the "twins" theme Kim & Jane started, of things not necessarily identical twins, I finally found the pics I was looking for:

Jane and I are cousins, only 10 mos. separates our ages, and usually half the world separates our homes. I describe her as the sister I never had, & Craig describes me as the sister she doesn't need. We actually look nothing alike, but whenever we were together, we frequently ended up in similar/identical outfits for some outing. The purple skirts were our Vanity Fair Outlet bargains when she came out to Alabama one summer. The blue skirt outfit was for our double dates with actual twins when I came to visit her in Utah--we just both randomly had similar outfits, no planning on that one. Somewhere there is a pic of us, about age 10, both wearing red knickers at the SLC Zoo.

My mom and aunt are not twins, but almost always end up matching...I will now begin to document this phenomenon...

I think the best part is Jane's hair :)

You can always win with a twin

Can't wait to see what KT's comment is now that I stole her standard response!

That is so funny...I, too am a huge fan of the hair.

Queen, you stole KT's standard response. That is hilarious! What is KT going to say? LOL

Oh dear. We really thought we were twins in the red knickers. And when we were 15 we were convinced in those gorgeous purple outfits (story behind the story, it was so damn humid that I had to wear my hair up so we both french braided to look more alike)

Craig is wrong, I love having one more sister :)

Paula, you mentioned that the outfits were a bargain, you forgot to mention that the skirt was $1 :)

Another great twinning!

Wow, I love nostalgia pictures.

I have some great pictures of Jane's hair. Although they would be classified as big now, it was so posh and cool. (She even taught me how to style hair to be big when I was 7!)

I knew they were cheap---just couldn't remember how cheap! I think we were a little older--16 or 17--because I remember driving us to Thumpers (teen dance club). Remember 6'6" tall cheapskate guy?

I'm shocked that you all are surprised by the big hair!! Oooohhh, I should do more photo digging!
