Doppelganger

In the last 3 days, I have had no less than 15 people congratulate me for having my picture on the Church website. The things is, my picture isn’t on the Church website. Take a gander. (I couldn’t insert this picture into the post, but it is the picture that comes up with the “Mothers and Daughters” link).
Really? Does that really look so much like me that my closest friends and family had a difficult time realizing that it wasn’t actually me? Then again, I suppose there are worse places to have a supposed doppelanger than on the Church website. Heaven knows it is better than people saying I look like this:

Speaking of twins, though, this is the only picture I’ve seen where my sister and I look the same:

I think we look completely different. In 21 years, I have never once mistook myself for her. But, that doesn’t stop people from asking us that we are twins (though she is 5 years older than me). Once, during a grocery shopping excursion, the checker asked us if we were twins.
Without missing a beat, we both responded “Yes.”
“Identical?”
“No.”
“But close, right?”
Yes, sir. We are close to being identical twins.

    1. Now that you mention it, it kind of looks like you. But not enough for me to be like, “Oh, cool that’s Jesslyn!”
    2. I WISH I looked like Drew Barrymore, but only in some movies. Some movies she’s gorgeous and some not so much.
