Today is my sister’s 21st birthday. We are very different people so there were many arguments growing up, but there were also many good times. We used to love wearing matching outfits that our mom or grandma would make us….and some that were store bought. We used to play house ALL the time. We both love to create stuff, although we have two very unique styles. She definitely loves being creative in the cooking/baking area hence pastry school. We have loved seeing all of her creations since pastry school, and I’m sure they taste much better than the concoctions she used to make us when she was little (I did like her bread with butter and sprinkles). But we are ready for her to be finished. We miss her! We love you Calli and hope you have a wonderful birthday!
Here’s a peek into her package. This apron I sent her was actually her Christmas present last year! I gave it to her and then had to ask for it back so I could fix it. It’s a good thing she loves me since it’s almost been a whole year from when I originally gave it to her.
And here’s a little notebook that I made for her. I love how it turned out. This is what I’m going to make my sisters-in law for Christmas, and maybe after the holidays I’ll make one for myself.
I also sent her a picture frame with a painting Karston made for her. I had intended to put a picture of Karston and Kyrie in the frame. However, we didn’t even get one picture of them both looking at the camera. We did get two really cute individual pictures. These are for you Calli.
I have so much to be thankful for. As I think back over the past year so much has happened/changed that we have to be thankful about:
-Kyrie not being sick
-The Lord’s protection in NOT buying a house.
-A new place to live, without mold.
-Wonderful neighbors and friends.
-For a new church that preaches the gospel.
-For creative friends that are so much fun to talk to and be around.
I have so many more things to be thankful for. Everyday there is something…many things. I am so thankful for my husband. He is so good to me, he loves me so much, and he is always making me a better person. I am also sooo thankful for our two beautiful children. They bring such joy to us, and we feel honored to be their parents.
