I think my favorite one was you making Megan play with the ugly Barbie. That's hilarious and so typical of sisters. Fortunately for Molly, she's so much younger that I just made HER my barbie doll. I put bad make-up on her everyday and did her hair crazy.

Katie said...

I can't believe you know how to slaughter a cow. I must say I wouldn't have guessed that. Great list, and I can only imagine what it feels like to save a life (a baby's at that). Good for you!!!!!
