Happy Birthday Tina

Okay, so do you really think pregnancy brain can kick in this quickly with your third child??

My sister-n-law's birthday was yesterday. She turned 28 years old. See I planned a big birthday surprise for her and a bunch of the girls for Thursday night. We took her to the Cheesecake Factory and had a wonderful time! She was surprised and everything happened as planned. We also made her a scrapbook that she can take overseas when they leave for the mission field in April. Oh yeah, and a dozen red roses in a vase. I thought we had a great time and she seemed to really enjoy it.

Then yesterday while I was on the phone with her, I totally forgot it was her birthday!! Well, not really because I asked her what they did and she said they went to a soccer game. I reminded her about her oldest son, Andrew, saying that was her birthday present. Then about 5 minutes later I asked what they were doing and she said "opening presents." I was sitting there in silence trying to figure out what the presents were for?? Duh, then it hit me and I felt like a complete moron!!

Tina, I hope you know just how much I care about you! You are one of the best friends I have ever had!! What would I do without you by my side? We've gone through the good times and bad. Thick and Thin. Well, mostly you've been thin... just kidding : ) Anyway, I love you very much and couldn't have picked a better sister-n-law if God would have given me a choice!!

Hope you had a wonderful birthday!!

You forgetting my bday was kind of funny...thing is, it sounds like something I would do and I am not pregnant! I guess that is what happens after you have 4 BRAIN CELLS! :)

I love you too and am so thankful to have such a wonderful sister-in-law! We have been through alot and it is great to know that we will always be there for each other!

Oh...I LOVE laughing with you. Around 1 in the morning is the funnest!! :)
