    WHEN did that happen????

    Ok so technically she's not 16 till tomorrow but we're doing cake and ice cream today. I just can't believe it....seems like yesterday she was 1 and toddling all over my wedding reception.

    I am in the process of finishing her birthday present....kind of a tradition that I started with our other sister when she turned 16.

    I write a poem containing things/memories that are "ours" and print it out in a nice font. I frame it between a picture of me holding that sister as a baby and a more recent picture.

    With this sister, I'm still doing things along the traditional way but as she is not traditional (LOL) I'm going slightly off path. I don't have a good picture of the two of us recently so I'm only using one from years ago. But...I'm using my favorite of the two of us. It was taken at my wedding reception, I'm holding her...she's about a year old and we're almost cheek to cheek.

    And the "poem".....welllllllllll..............LOL Step has met her and can attest. She's not the most traditional of kids. Not that she's off in her own little world, she's just.......herself. Here it is. It won't make sense really to anyone but us but it's funny.

    The surprise sister
    Evil twin
    Mini me
    Extra teeth
    Spare bones

    Can read your own X-rays
    Spits gum on my car
    Growls over dessert
    Belches the alphabet
    Can’t finish ice cream cones

    Snow dances
    Snuff boxes
    Watch out for that….door
    Or cabinet, trim or wall
    Gags at my ring tones

    Road trips
    Hot muffins
    Moo I’m a spider
    No hugging zone

    No mush allowed
    But I still snuck it in
    When did I blink
    Sister of mine
    You’re almost grown.
