Sisters are one of my most favorite things!

I think that God knew what He was doing when He decided to give me two sisters so close in age.
They are both built in best friends and (if it is okay with you :) I'm going to brag on them for just a little bit.

My sisters are amazing. Let me start with that :)
Just thinking about how life would be without them makes me feel like crying!
I know I would be in pieces :)

I'm a person that NEEDS to talk to someone, lots.
I need to have someone with whom I can share my heart, knowing that that the person I'm sharing with won't be critical.
I need someone to whom I can ask opinions and know that they will give an honest answer (even though it may be brutal sometimes :)
And also someone who I can solve problems with.
I'm fortunate to have two such persons in my family.
Megan and Kerri.


I can tell either of them ANYTHING. I know that my secrets are safe and they will be honest with me.

Here are some of my most favourite times with my BFF's....

- Riding horses at 6:00 in the morning

- Taking photoshoots with Meggy
- Playing football and hockey
- Late night one on one "shoot the puck" sessions with Ker after we have eaten to much cheesecake!

- Playing Canasta, for hours and hours and hours!

- Talking late into the night
- Playing detective, putting our heads together and figuring out when mom is pregnant... we haven't been wrong yet! 

- Staying up late when mom and dad are gone... watching movies, eating popcorn and chatting, chatting, chatting!

- Baking with Kerri
- Going to DQ together when we were camping

- Figuring out my blog with Megan (not sure who had more fun with that one :)
- Writing back and forth in our "job book" (Meg and Ker... you know what I'm talking about :)
- Cutting their hair!

- Being excited together whenever a new brother or sister came into the world.

- Making cookies when Mom and Dad were gone, and then eating most of the cookie dough (this was a couple of years ago folks :).
- Going for a run/walk together

- Re-arranging our rooms
- Playing "house" (we used to do it CONSTANTLY when we were little).
- Doing the dishes with Kerri, all the while singing and singing and SINGING!!!

- Making music videos with Meg (you can see her videos here).
- Playing wii with Ker until after mid-night (we forgot to look at the time :)

- Talking, talking, talking and TALKING while waiting for the cows to empty while milking.

And I could go on.. and on and on. These are just the ones that popped into my head.

Meg and Ker I love you both SO much.
You have done so much for me and I will be forever grateful that God has made us....

I'm so happy for you. I'm praying that our girls will be best friends too. I'm not exactly sure how to go about it though, any advice?


p.s. I'm really enjoying your playlist

Mrs. Pauls,

I think I can say that the main reason that we are best friends is because we spend ALOT of time together.
We don't go out with friends on our own, rather we have family friends that we get together with as a family.
We share a room.
We homeschool together.
And just in general are TOGETHER.

And I think also that the beliefs we have play a part in making us best friends.
We believe that family is the MOST important thing in this world, next to God.
So instead of going our separate ways we often like to stick together and do family outings and things that include everyone.

Thanks for your comment, and I hope this helps!

Love it Jen!
We totally agree about spending time together and with family. You guys are awesome sisters, and great examples to your siblings.
Love, Jordie, Janae, and Jerica

Awwww...I love this because it gives me a peek into your everyday beautiful life, and also because I feel the same way about my sister and brother. Now, regrettably, we have no haircutting skills, or horses, and I've never heard of Canasta. But a lot of this is alike. We share the same spirit!
