One Year OLdEr and WiSer too...

HaPPy BiRthDay - CherYl

This is my BeaUtiFul sisters BirTHday. There are so many BleSSings in my life and she is at the top of that list! I have 5 SiSters (2 brothers) and she is the LeaDer of the bunch (estrogen fest). When we were YouNger, being the adolesents that we were..we had a rough go of it (actually we never fought, pulled hair, screamed at each other, or were mean by any stretch-cough, cough)..She soon went to CoLLege and that's when the RelaTionShip began (writing letters back and forth,amen to GroWing up). Once I was MaRRied with a ChiLd of my own we moved to UTah, where we lived with them for a few weeks. We found a home 20-30 north of her, but that did NoT impede our time together. Every other weekend or so we would SWaP out nieces for R&R..her youngest and my oldest are the same age..so it worked out VerY weLL! When they MoVed it RoCked my LittLe world..I MiSS her still after ManY years, being so close to me physically...if you were here CherYl here is what we would DO...

OnioN RinGs..hopefully WiThout the major stomach AchE and best of all

Ben'S CooKiEs..at the GatEway (even do some shopping)!

I "BoRRowed" this picture from her web site (go check out, darling blog, always with something good to think about and learn from)http://www.kckanenwishers.blogspot.com/ . She is the GreaTest friend, sister, daughter and Mother...I LoVe you and hope you have a WonDerFul Day!

Happy birthday to your sister. How neat to have such a large family. I'm sure it might have some cons but I've always been envious of large families (well since growing up, because like you said it's then that the relationships actually begin).
