Someone mentioned that Debbie and I look alike. There’s always been a strong McLaughlin family resemblance between the 6 of us but I think that she looks more like my Dad’s side of the family and I look more like Mom.

This picture was taken in October at Chris’ wedding and the youngest and oldest are standing on either end. I won’t tell you who’s the oldest in the family but I think it’s pretty obvious from this picture since Maureen looks like she’s 12!

If Pat and Kevin switched places in the back – we’d be standing in age order which puts me smack in the middle of the pack or what I like to refer to as the oldest of the youngest girls!

You may have also noticed that I call her Debbie and she calls herself Deb – old habits are hard to break – luckily she doesn’t seem to mind.


  1. Well you might as well go ahead and say I’m the oldest of the bunch…you pretty much did anyway. I don’t mind though, it seems you are catching up fast!
