The Other Side of Amy

Hello everyone, I am your guest blogger for today. For those of you who don't know me, I am Amy's older sister Diana.

First an update on what Amy has been doing. Amy woke up (late) and sat on a porch. Then she ate some food, then she sat on a porch. Next Amy worked in the snack bar, then she sat on a porch. Then Amy ate some more food, the she sat on a porch. Next Amy worked in the snack bar again, followed by, can you guess, sitting on a porch. All of this was done of while knitting hats for everyone she has ever met.
I also decided that all of you need to know more of the Amy that I know. I will attempt to show you this through a series of pictures, past and present.

This is amy when she was 3 months old, and we went to the beach. This is why Amy no longer likes to be all bundled up.

This is our dad feeding Amy icecream . . . and now she is the ice cream queen!
This is my sister and I, and should be proof that I am older than Amy (5 years)

Ok now I was doing well at keeping these pictures in some sort of order, but as a guest blogger I clearly do not have all of the skills necessary for a really great blog update. So the pictures are now out of order. This is a modern picture of Amy, just before her graduation from PLU, ask her sometime how many times she had to jump before we got a really great jumping picture, where she was in the air, and sill had both a head and arms. It was a lot of work.
Here is another picture of almost the same thing.
This picture was taken last winter. This was the first time that Amy had ever been X-Country skiing. This was the first tiny little hill we came to.
Those of you who know Amy, or know our family know that we are a little clutzy. this is what happens when a clutzy person goes skiing. I LOVE YOU SISTER!

Here is amy the future Ice Cream Queen, being fed by our dad, as I look on. Notice the footie (sorry about the spelling) Pajamas that both my sister and I are sporting. I bet all of you reading this are jeleous right now. That's right we had footie pajamas.
Amy had when she was little, and continues to have her own very interesting style.
Okay well I am getting tired of this, and don't know what to say about this picture, other than Amy was so cute. I have to give Amy props for updating the blog as often as she does. I do not have the patients it takes to put all of these pictues in, and I am not even having to deal with the slow/busy Holden internet. So if I don't say it, Thanks Amy for all the updates, they are great, and I never realized how much work it can be just to stick a couple of pictures up on the internet. I am in the home stretch now.
This is Amy (with the super cool sunglasses), me, and our Aunt Nan. I think that if Amy still had these sunglasses she would be wearing them right now. They were super cool.

Thank you all for letting me be a guest blogger, I had a lot of fun, and a lot of frustration, and now I feel like I understand more of what Amy has to do to update the blog, and I will apreciate it a lot more when she does finally update. I just want Amy to know that we all love and miss her, and can't wait to see you again.
Love ya,
Diana Cross
