Happy Birthday Sister!

When I was a little girl, I was terrified of the white dots that you see when the lights get turned off at night...I thought they were bugs. So my wonderful sister Kiersten willingly let me sleep with her every night for a very long time while I slowly got over my fear of these bugs. I now realize what a sacrifice that was for her, because it is not fun to have a squirming, kicking child in your bed every night for months on end. Since I was just a little girl, we have been the best of friends and she has continued to be my dearest friend and sister. Even with her living in California, we always plan trips for me to come out and visit, because I love to be with her and the beautiful family she has made. One of the things I love most about Kierst is that she has always been so caring and passionate about her family and she is one of the best mothers, sister, and friend I have ever known.

I am so glad you were bornded Kierst, you are cuter than 14 stink bugs. I love you. Happy Birthday.
