mi familia

Bill and I have two awesome kids.

One of which got all of my genes, and the other got Bill's.

Through and through.

I've often been told that my kindergarten picture looks like Porter. With pigtails:

And just recently, we have been amazed at the uncanny resemblance that Evelyn has with her pa:

And it wasn't until yesterday, when I was getting ready for church and printing off a copy of this picture for my lesson, that it hit me like a ton of bricks. This is our most recent family picture taken a couple of weeks ago by my sister in my parents backyard. Bill and I are each holding the offspring that looks like us. And for some reason, to me, in this picture, the similarities are striking:

Hey Porter, you may have inherited your mother's genes, but at least my pigtails didn't come along with the package :).

I still can't get over how much Evie looks like her dad in that picture! And I have always thought Porter is a mini Nat:) My question is: Who does Evelyn get her Spunky and cute into everything personality from? :)

Evie does look like that picture of Bill. It's amazing how kids are like certain parents. The verdict is still out on Ethan and Gavin... Love your family picture!
