Happy Birthday Kar Kar!

Dear Big Sister,
I don't know why, but I am already emotional.
Geez...what's my problem...good thing you can't see me cause this is embarrassing.
I want you to know that I think you're so amazing!
You have been such a great big sister and I am beyond happy that it is your birthday today so that I can dedicate a whole blog post just to you!
You are 29 today! Man...where did time go?!
Weren't we like 4 & 10 yesterday?
For your birthday blog I wanted to relive some memories that always stick out in my mind when I think of favorite times with you!*When we were little and I would make you play Barbies with me. Don't worry...I pretty much blackmailed you. "I'll tell mama what you said to me yesterday if you don't play Barbies with me." Oh gosh...but...I know secretly you loved it. Except for you cut my boy Barbie's hair...and it looked terrible.*We didn't really get along a whole lot growing up cause you were mean and I was kinda partial to Krista, but I can remember seeing you fly over your handlebars when we were bike riding and it was the scariest thing my little 3 year old heart had seen. I peddled home as fast as I could!

*When I got my tonsils taken out you were quite the nurse. Except this one time you forgot that I couldn't have certain things and you brought me out a popcorn and Doritos snack while I was on the couch. When I told you I couldn't eat it you got so upset at yourself. I didn't think much of it then, but now it's cute.

*Nsync concert in Jacksonville! Wow...what a time! 9th row and dancing our little hearts out! Definitely a time I will remember forever!

*When I started my period you sent me a package. You were at BYU and I was in the 8th grade. I was SO stoked to get a package from you. I opened it and it was all wrapped in BYU wrapping paper...I was seriously so excited! I opened it and what is it? Oh...just some tampons. I was SO mad!

*Dancing places with you...EFY, church dances, on the boat, etc...wherever it is, you're a great partner!*When we were in our apartment at Crestwood you were sitting on the armrest of the couch. I forget what was said, but you laughed so hard that you fell straight back onto the floor. [more assistance in back problems, yes?] was AWESOME!
*Putting on shows in the living room is one of my favs! Whether it's You're a Good Man Charlie Brown, Wicked, Glee, or Britney Spears...we have the best productions hands down.
Well...I think it's apparent I could go on and on about our memories, Karl. We have had some great years...and some not so great years. Haha. If there is one thing I am truly grateful for, it is Krista's mission. Her mission forced us to come together since she could no longer be the middle man. That changed my life. We became the best of friends and our sister circle could be longer a line with Kris in the middle. A circle. A forever circle. I am so grateful to be sealed to you for eternity. You will be one awesome person to be with for forever! :] You are smart, talented, hysterical, giving, and drop dead gorgeous! I know you always say that I should've been born before you because I was more of a big sister...but no. I don't agree with that. I am the baby and you're the big sister. That's the way it was supposed to be and you have been a great role model. I have learned a lot from you.

Happy 29th, Kar...i love you. Lots & Lots.
