Meet My Family

I have to say that I am amazed by the number of people who commented on my last blog post.  I'm so glad that my experience resonated with so many different people and that they were willing to share their thoughts with me.  So THANK YOU!!!  It's nice to know that there is someone out there listening to the words that I spew into internet-land.

Onto my next post-  Meet My Family!!  I have a crazy family, and I love them a lot.  I espeically love them when we are all in the Carribean together.  So let me introduce you to them!

First up, my "Papa"-razzi.  He took 7 GB of pictures in 7 days.  That's commitment.  I guess it's easy when all your children are as good-looking as we are.  (I have to give credit where credit is due- my sister made up the name Papa-razzi.  But I posted it first on the internet, so HA.)

Next up, my Momma.  If everyone in my family had a super power, hers would be reverse aging.  When I flip through my scrapbook of pcitures of my whole life, she looks younger and younger in every picture (and I definitely look older).  I don't know how she does it- but one day we're going to go into a restuarant together and someone is going to mistake me for her mother.

Next, my sister.  Her super power is artistic-picture-taking.  She's perfected the cut-off-part-of-your-subjects-face  trick and the turn-the-camera-sideways trick  (see the Paparazzi and Sol/Finley pics for examples)

Here's my sister's husband and their cute little boy.  Their superpowers are putting-up-with-the-Grimmers.  They do it very well.

And last but not least, my little brothers.  Now that they are both 6 foot tall, I guess they aren't so little.  I think they both went through some technology withdrawal on our trip to Grand Cayman.  They couldn't use their cell phones there, so they resorted to using tennis shoes and conch shells (get it? It's a shell-phone!!) 


  1. Perfect shots that represent the uniqueness of each person. Well done. As to my super is smoke and mirrors. But thanks for the sweet compliment.

  2. Cynthia - you must lend me your smoke and mirrors at least for a day! Great post Laura - perhaps I will get to see you this weekend. Jerry and I are coming up with Erica to Chicago! I am not doing any of the girls night out but I will be going for mani/pedi - my first ever.
