Today is my sister 'Lene's birthday, I can't tell you how old she is because I can hardly remember how old I am.
But, I know I was 7 years old and in the 1st grade when she was born. With 3 younger brothers I was quite the happy big sister.
For as long as I can remember she has always loved books.

She has let me be more than just an aunt to her children. Sometimes I forget that I am not "Nana Niece"
So Lene, I may be older than you, and you always have had better looking hair than I do (go back and look at the first photo again if you have any doubt), but this is true...I have the best sister in the world.
I love you with all my heart, and wish I was with you to celebrate your day.
Love ya,

Sisters are absolutely the best!

I forgot you and Lene were sisters (shame on me as I read both of your blogs!)

I'll give a second Happy Birthday shout out to Lene (I think I've already left one for her on another blog but hey, no such thing as too much)~!
