Day 3 - Your siblings and parents

So, this is probably the best subject for me. I am a HUGE family person. I love being with my family because we are the best of friends and we always laugh when we are together.

To start things off, I am going to talk about my parents.
Here is a beautiful picture of my Mom and Dad:
These two mean everything to me. They truly are the best parents that anyone could ever ask for. They are supportive of any righteous decisions that Nate and I decide to make. They let Nate and I live our lives. They know along the way that we might make a few mistakes, but this life is all about learning. They always have great advice to give, but I love the fact that they refrain from giving us the advice unless we ask for it. They are extremely loving. I just love to be around my parents because we always have such an amazing time when we're together. My mom is extremely selfless. Growing up my Mom always made sure that Kendra (my sister) and I had everything we needed and wanted before she met her own needs and wants. She was the peacemaker in the home. I really don't remember my mom ever raising her voice at us kids. She always seemed so calm to me and I love that about her. She is still this way today! She knows how to go with the flow. My mom is such an inspiration to me. I hope that one day I can be as good of a mom as she is. She is easy to talk to about anything and is always willing to help me out in times of need. She has such a great sense of humor as well. She's always laughing and making others around her enjoy their life. My dad is a great man as well. I remember going on basketball trips with him and just having so much fun. He is a crack-up and that's what I love about him! You can't take this man seriously unless a certain facial expression is present..when you see that certain face you know it's time to stop whatever you're doing. There is this one memory I have of him dancing to Usher's "Yeah" in our hotel room on one of my tourny's in Seattle. Nothing like walking out of the bathroom and seeing your white dad try to dance like a black man. :) He just has such a great sense of humor and I hope that when I grow up I can continue on his path. He is so much fun to play games with as well! He is the man I get to thank for being so competitive! At an early age I learnt that you play to win, and that was that. He taught me his strategy to every single game and still to this day we LOVE to game together. My parents are pretty much my best friends and I would never have it any other way. I love you guys!

Now it's time for my sister, brother-in-law, and little niece Brookey. Here is a beautiful picture of their cute little family, which is about to expand:
I love my sister and her family! They are so cute and so much fun to be around. My sister and I have been one of each other's best friends for as long as I can remember. She is a beautiful person on the inside and out. We can make each other laugh like it's nobody else's business. I remember the good old days when she used to pull my hair (that was her only defense), but luckily we grew out of that early on. I could not ask for a better sister. She is always concerned about how I am doing and she makes me feel so loved. I love being involved in her life. When we get together we love to game, bake, and just laugh. It's fun to try new recipes when we are together! It's easier to be creative with someone else than by yourself, so that's what I love about her! Even though we don't live close, we still find that special time to skype with each other to see what's going on in each other's world. I love skype. I don't know what I would do if I couldn't see my family all of the time through that wonderful technology! Anyways, we have the BEST times when we are together and I love when Nate and I get to visit them. Kale, her husband, is a heck of a lot of fun himself. He always wants to be on the go because he likes having fun and keeping busy. It makes for fun experiences because we are always trying something new! Thanks for spicing up our lives Kale :) Now to talk about my favorite little girl in the whole wide world. (I'm about to have 2 favorites because another baby girl is being born this April, so I can't wait to keep being the best Auntie alive!) Anyways, I love my little miss B. She is the CUTEST girl I have ever seen. She has such an attitude that Auntie loves because this auntie doesn't have to deal with it. Mommy does. She is just over 2 years old and she is such a hoot! She talks amazingly well, and it is just so fun to be able to communicate with something so small and precious. I love playing games with her when we get to visit and I just love making her laugh and smile. She means the world to me. I can never get enough of my cute little princess!

Well, there is is for my amazing parents and siblings. I love you guys and always remember that you mean the world to me. Love, Kels <3
