Family Resemblance?

So it's been a little while since I've been able to update this for everyone. We've been super busy. My sister has been in town from Seattle and next week we'll be heading up there to spend some time at her place. While we're away, I thought I'd elicit all of your guys' help. While some parents produce carbon copy babies, all with striking familial resemblances, we can't seem to get two at all alike! I'd like your thoughts on the matter. Who looks like who? Do you see any likenesses? Kyle and I also can't fully agree on which child looks like which parent! I've posting a number of pics in order to give you, those who haven't met my children, the best possible idea of what they look like. I look forward to reading your responses and I'll be back posting after our trip!

Hey Katie,
I think Scarlett looks like you and Asher looks like Kyle. I think Avanlee is the "adopted child." This is what Paul's family calls him because he looks NOTHING like his brothers. Avanlee has such full cheeks that is makes it hard to say she looks like either of you! Glad to see you are all healthy and happy! :o)

I don't know! Just when I was about to definitively say that Scarlett and Asher look alike then I would see a picture where Avanlee and Asher look alike. I'm just going to have to sit the fence on this one--they are all just a good little mix in different ways of the two of you.

I think I'm a pretty good authority on this, since I knew you in kindergarten ;) I think your oldest daughter looks a LOT like you when you were little. In fact, the first time I saw your blog, I thought you'd put up a picture of yourself at age 5!

I think that both girls look more like you and that Asher looks like Kyle. Even through Avanlee's cheek I can see you in her. Your kids are so darling!

I think Scarlett is your clone and definitely looks like a Holdaway. I agree with your friend that she looks like a picture of you when you were little. Asher looks more like Kyle. At first I couldn't decide on Avanlee because I think the red hair throws you off at first, but then as I scrolled down, there's one picture of her that I think looks like your sister Stacy. Your girls definitely got the Holdaway genes.

Oh my goodness, Scarlett is like your carbon copy Katie! It makes me laugh - I think it's adorable how much she looks like you! Asher looks a little more like Kyle from the pics I've seen, though I see some of you in him. Avanlee is harder. She looks like a good mix to me (a little Katie, a little Kyle). All of them are stinkin ADORABLE though! I can't wait to play the "which parent does the kid look like" game with my own kiddo!

They look like different people in different pictures. But ultimately, I think Avanlee looks like you, Scarlett looks a little more like Kyle (but is still a good mix of both), and Asher is a mix of both but looks slightly more like you. So there are my opinions even though they are different from others'.

Who knows. I think genetically they are both a mix. (obviously). But Scarlett for sure looks like you. You can always do the look-alike meter on myheritage.com

Well, I think Scarlett looks exactly like you. I thought Avanlee looked like Kyle until Asher came along as his clone. So maybe Avanlee is a girly version of Kyle. Whatever the case, they are all pretty cute kids!!
