My twin siblings celebrate their birthday today...
They have always been part of a package
done things together,
and this year again - the whole family
hopes to celebrate tonight these two great persons!
We love both of you and wish you a fantastic year...
This past June, Derek got married to the lady of his dreams,
we are thrilled for him!! They are fantastic together
and it is so awesome to see them so happy....
Michelle, we love you... you are a gem! I know how much you miss having
your parents and sibling near you but I am SO thankful
for the sacrifices that you make so that Derek can be here... we are blessed
to have you in our family!
Now when it comes to my sister and I...
This past year has brought us super close,
has been so good for our friendship,
and I am SO thankful for this!
Yes we still have our differences, but we find more similarities
everyday and we treasure them!!!
So because Derek was getting married and moving out the house,
Corina decided to venture off on her own as well!
and right into my back yard!!! YAY!!
(I know Dad and Mom miss her at home but we LOVE having her here!!)
We now get to spend much quality time together,
I get to watch her dote on my children,
go for bike rides,
join us for supper,
eat lunch with us everyday
(and because she comes in everyday so does Ben so this is
a super duper added bonus!!)
play fight on the trampoline with my kids,
Float down the river,
soak up the rays at the river,
I see my children look up to their auntie,
I see them treasure every moment they get with her,
she helps me stay more organized :),
we talk deep,
we laugh, we cry,
we care, we love.
Oh, how we love her!!
Corina... you are a blessing in our lives!!
Thank you so much! <3
Wishing both of you a fantastic day filled with lots of love!!
