My now "very old" cousin, Jessica, just turned 20 yesterday, and I just wanted to send a big Happy Birthday!
We've made a lot of memories together, but here are just a few! (Because I honestly don't think I have one blog reader who would look through that many pictures only we would laugh about! And I so would have posted the power point we made a few years ago, but it's not on my computer! It'd better be somewhere, Jess.)
Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey! Every year after every show, we made up our minds to join the circus. Yep, this is about as far as we got. But don't we look shnazzy?
At "My-Lazy-Caboose" Ranch. :D We were pretty loopy that morning. I blame it on sleep deprivation, cause it couldn't have just been us.
Hee! While the others tied ropes to fence posts to play jump rope, Jess found more... creative things to do.
My fifteenth birthday I got squashed.
It's not an "us" get together if we don't play at least one ridiculous game. Scatagories, Balderdash, and Cranium are top of the list.
I hope you have a great birthday, Jess, and know that I'm praying for you often. Hope we get to see you again soon, and of course.... Love you a million swedish fish.

Happy Birthday, Mommy!
You're an amazing example to Elise and me. Thank you for all the love you pour into our home!
10- A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies.
11- Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.
12- She does him good, not harm, all the days of her life.
15- She gets up while it is still dark; she provides food for her family and portions for her servant girls.
17- She sets about her work vigorously; her arms are strong for her task.
25- She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come.
26- She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue.
27- She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness.
28- Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.
29- Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.
30- Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
