Mikay at her b-day party!! Happy 14th!!

Ill try to make this short...... cause pictures seem to speak louder than words!! But as i've been thinking about Mikayla on her b-day today, i have just felt so blessed to have such an awesome little sister, and i am grateful to have her in my life. YEARS ago, when we had 7 kids everyone always thought we were done, because 7 seems like a handful, but i always felt like we were missing someone, and it turns out that many of our family members felt that way, someone was missing. I'll never forget the day i met my little "wonton" she was five years old, and came to us from florida. As soon as she got off the plane, i started crying, i felt like i had seen her before. My whole family was crying, we found her!! And the rest is history, we were sealed to mikay a few years later, and time has flown by, i can't even remember life without her!! She is one of my best friends, we are differant but we balance each other out. i could chill with her all day!! I have alot of fun memories about her, when she was like 5 years old she was obsessed with the movie "stuart little" she watched it like a million times a day, and she would talk in her "stuart little voice" it was a high annoying voice, but cute nevertheless. i will never forget watching her play soccer fot he first time, she fell alot at first but pretty soon everyone was gathering to watch her, she was amazing for a 5 year old!! And of course i will never forget when she was about 6 or 7 and i found her with a pile of things that did not belong ot her, she informed me that they belonged to her because they "were made in china" and she was too!! So i made her a shirt that said "made in China" and she wore it for years!! One day i started calling her my little wonton and it has stuck, she was even amazed later to find out that wontons were things in soup, she thought i had made up the word!!
I just love this girl!! Happy Birthdya mikayla!!! Love ya forever and ever!!!

Hooray for Mikay and Hooray for your excellent spelling abilities. I love BOLWING too! How come I wasn't invited BOLWING Haley. You are rude and have hurt my heart.
