Happy Birthday Nicole!

Today is my sister Nicole Elizabeth's birthday. This young lady is so very special to me, and I am proud to be called her little sister.  Nicole and I fought so much through my elementary years, primarily because I was six years younger than her, and therefore my maturity level was way lower. However, even though we bickered and fought I never loved her any less.  I remember on many occasions being in junior-high and her coming to my class and dropping off a candy bar and note.  Maybe it seemed insignificant and meaningless to her, but to me it meant that my big sister took time out of her day and thought of me.  

As I grow older and now am in my freshman year of college, my sister and I have grown closer.  This young lady has been an incredible example to me and a great role model.  Different things came into her life and I would watch, I am sure without her realizing, but she never got discouraged or grew impatient. She continued to be faithful to God so confident that He was in control and would take care of her, and He did and still is.  I am so thankful for her amazing testimony to me.  

Not only is Nicole a great example and sister but she is talented in so many ways.  Brooke and I often joke that Nicole is capable of doing anything, from cooking to decorating, she is fantastic! She also is so brilliant, and gorgeous to say the least!  I know God has great plans for my sister!

Happy Birthday Nicole, I love you so very much!

Fun Times

One night this past week my sisters and I made dinner together, which is always a blast.  Most of the time it takes us a little longer to prepare the meal because we are too busy goofing off, and singing crazy songs together. Never the less we did end up up making some very fine Parmesan Chicken. :)

Not sure what I was doing!

We love cooking! 

The finished product. . . delicious! 

I was also able to go get a manicure with my sisters.  

"She is your mirror, shining back at you with a world of possibilities. She is your witness, who sees you at your worst and best, and loves you anyway. She is your partner in crime, your midnight companion, someone who knows when you are smiling, even in the dark. She is your teacher, your defense attorney, your personal press agent, even your shrink. Some days, she’s the reason you wish you were an only child."
