V is for Valentine

Me, our little friend and my sister

V is for Valentine

Smiles. 

Holding hands. 

Red outfits. 

Girls and one boy. 

That's the way many childhood events were — two against one. The twin factor never bothered me. It certainly didn't bother this little boy, who appears to have everything under control. 

My sister and I shared many things growing up such as friends, toys, birthday parties and several hair pulling fights. 

I'm the good twin after all and my sister Tracy is the evil one. If she's talking, you may hear she's the good twin and I'm the evil one. This memoir stuff is tricky when siblings are involved. Everyone has a different version of the story. 

I don't believe this is a Valentine's Day picture (we'll see if my parents are really reading this blog), but the photo makes me recall a few Valentine's Days.

  1. My sister and I always have different versions of the same story. Some things just never change.

    1. Holly, We had some cute 70s clothes in our youth. Then, some cool 80s clothes. :)

    1. Catherine, If I could only channel some of our stories into a book!

  5. Stacy, I didn't realize you were a twin. Wow, that's so neat. I always wanted twins, mostly because then I'd only have to be pregnant once and only have to give birth once. LOL! But I do think it would be so cool to be a twin.

    Love the picture!

    1. Sheila, These photos have sealed my fate — now everyone knows. My Hubby had the same thought as he hoped for twins. Two for one - he kept saying. It remains "cool" to be a twin.

  6. All you kids look happy in the picture! :) Which twin are you? I guess the girl on the right (she has the same smile as your gravatar ;))

    1. Funny you should ask. I think I'm on the left. This photo didn't have my mom's cheat sheet of "S" and "T" under the proper child. :)

  7. This sure looks like it COULD be Valentines Day! What a cute picture! And my sister and I are not twins (about as far from it as you can get since I was adopted :)) but we usually had two different versions of the same story growing up as well! "She started it....!"

    1. Susanna, Funny how siblings do this. And, I never started. That's impossible for the good twin, right?

    1. Karen, I was fortunate that my mom gave me a small supply. So, I just had to hunt in one place for them.

  9. Such an adorable picture of you, Stacy. Being a twin must give you lots of story ideas!

  10. Priceless photo, Stacy! I wonder if we'd all notice if she blogged in your place one day... Perhaps her evilness would shine through. ;-)
