Spending Time with Sisters



This week I am looking forward to spending time with my sisters at the lake house....



We all lead such busy lives...I truly cherish this time together...there will be lots of sharing, talking, laughing, planning and dreaming...

(These two teddies belonged to sisters....second cousins of my mother in law....they were given to them by their father when they were young girls... almost 100 years ago....)



I am so grateful to have wonderful sisters to share my life with....

(The copper plaque above was found at the thrift store.....only $1!....maybe we'll get to do a little shopping...thrifting...junking and antiquing this week too!)

Have such a wonderful time. I found my sister later in life, in the form of a best friend.
Ironically we grew closer when she moved 2 time zones west. When she finally returned to Michigan 8 months later I moved 2 time zones west, but through it all we shop online togther, finish each others sentences & somehow think same things each day.
And the plaque is fabulous!!!!!!!!!!

I soo agree...
My sisters are my best friends in the WHOLE WORLD...
And I´ve got 5 of them...=)))
But it´s my little sister and I who get together most of the time...
We have kids in the same age...and only one years different between us...
Have a great weekend...

I love those old bears...sooo sweet!
I do have a sister too, but she has a handicap
(is this the english word???)
It's difficult to have any contact with her...
I miss that sometimes what you have with your sister!!!
have fun together! cherish it!

Have a wonderful time...I'm a teeney bit jealous. I have a lake house...sort of...it's actually a lake mobile home :o}...but I don't have a sister...or a brother for that matter. Never really wanted a brother but I always wanted to be a big sis and my mother said NO!! You'd think after 54 years I would've gotten over this! :o} *elaine*

Have a great time together! My son bought a little statuette which would match your plaque - he has interesting taste for a child his age!

Hi Laura,
I have only one sister,who lives in the Azores (a small island in the atlantic ocean) and is now going through difficult times. I wish I could be with her!!
Enjoy their company! That will be a marvellous time.
Be happy and have an amazing weekend.
Loved the pictures! They are even prettier when they have lovely stories behind

Laura , have a smashing weekend with your sisters. I have one sister with whom I have just spent a week with at her house....our husbands went off ,driving through France and Spain in a morgan sports car, and my sister and I had a great time.
I have to say though , your brother sounds great. I think that he has a terrific sense of humour. Enjoy yourselves. XXXX
