Growing Through Pictures

Our very first camping trip together - we loved each other even then!

Miriam, Anna, Joel, and Elijah - the foursome in 1996...

...and in 2004. We do grow! =)

Anna's 8th birthday

Yes... we did a lot of dress up! We still enjoy taking pictures all fancied up, even at our "old" ages of 15 and 16. A girl's never too old to dress up!

A camping trip in 2002

Our first spring band concert when we were 12. Miriam was short, but she did grow eventually!

Friends in 2004

Together at Frontier Days

Our Circle of Friends at our girls Christmas Party in 2004. Rebekah, Miriam, Elizabeth, Anna, and Rebekah.

Friends of the heart - 2005

We still love to dress up... and be old-fashioned. =)

Great pics! Wow Anna, I can't believe how short your hair used to be! I figured it was always long. You can see Miriam's height progression too, she's going to be the taller of you two one day! hehe i'm just joking.

Glad you enjoyed the pictures! Actually, Sami, my hair was always short until I was around 12 years old. Mom didn't want to deal with long hair when I was little, so I always had to have it shoulder length or shorter growing up. I was so glad when I could finally grow it out! Yes, Miriam did grow finally... and she may still surpass me. She got her growth spurter later than I, and I wouldn't be surprised if she did surpass me!
