Celebrating My Sister

Today is my sister's birthday!  My goodness, we've known each other all our lives, but it seems we're learning more about each other every day.  Who knew, back when we were teens, how much we'd value the time spent with each other?  In honor of my sister, here are a few quotes - just for her!

Sisters is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once the sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship.  ~Margaret Mead

What's the good of news if you haven't a sister to share it?  ~Jenny DeVries

In the cookies of life, sisters are the chocolate chips.  ~Author Unknown

A sister is a forever friend.  ~Author Unknown

When mom and dad don't understand, a sister always will.  ~Author Unknown

There is no better friend than a sister.  And there is no better sister than you.  ~Author Unknown

We've been though many good times and bad, thick and thin and through it all we've been there for each other.  I'm glad you are my sister, and I am blessed to call you friend.

Happy Birthday Karen!

Wrapping up the Holidays

I hope you had some wonderful times with your family and friends over the holidays.  We spent some time with my sister, visiting from Oregon.  I know it's after Christmas, but I just had to share some holiday wrapping with you!

I found the initial tags at Martha Stewart.  My son loves green and my daughter loves pink.  The kids knew exactly which presents were theirs when they came down the steps.  The wrapping paper was from Target.
