Thanks Ferf=)

uuuuuuWOW!!! If anyone can make me sound that awesome, you know it'd be Ferf! Thanks so much Ferf for being so sweet to me and writing up such a nice tribute:) 19 years of growing up with you as my sister is one of the biggest blessings in my life.
gggggI've learned so much from you through the years and I depend on your friendship maybe a little too much! Every single day you extend kindness and care to everyone around you (who most of the time is your six siblings!) and I am provoked to follow your example of how you love all people and sacrifice your time for others.
jjjjjjjI LOVE all the fun little memories we have together like crying when we lost our first teeth, pretending like we were Indians for hours, falling into every single ditch on our street while learning to ride bikes without training wheels, dancing to Nsync (haha!), practicing our awesome soccer plays in the backyard(by the way, I'm nothing on the field without you!) Italian dressing on everything!, you always trying to put make-up on me(well , actually I don't like that but it's kinda funny:) practicing for talent shows the night before(and still winning!), singing "She'll be comin' round the Mountain" for 4 hours straight, chips and salsa (oh ya!), being hooked on American Idol (you should try out ferf!) listening to Oldies music in our Xterra, and thousands more memories that I've been blessed to share with you!
jjjjjjjRemember every year on the night before our birthday we would stay up so late in your top bunk-bed staring at the clock and the second it was midnight you would sing Happy birthday to me and then 2 minuets later I would sing to you??=) Ha!
uuuuuuThe Lord truly gave me the best sister in the world and there's no else who I'd rather share my birthday with!
hhhhI love you a ton and happy birthday girl! Thanks so much for being my little Ferf =) Love Jes

19 YeArS aS bEsT fRieNds:)


Jess, I can't believe that we are 19!!! WoW! I have absolutely loved growing up side by side with you and it is exciting to see where the Lord has brought us.
Thank you so much for being my amazing sister as well as my best friend. I am so blessed to have you as an example and role model in my life.
I love the times when we simply cannot stop laughing, when we stay up way too late talking, I love singing with ya, rocking the soccer field with you (well you're the one rockin it...and I'm just with you! haha), shopping, playing violin, running [even though you always beat me!...except that one time of course:) ], and writing new songs with you is always one of my favorite things to do! You and I have been blessed with so many opportunities to be together making memories. Some of my fav are: growing up in SGC, AWANAS, winning the 3 legged race:) (oh ya people!! we were the best! hehe), serving as counselors at triple r ranch for 3 weeks, baking like 20 pies one year for Thanksgiving, enrichment (senior year was the bomb!!07 baby!!), going to Mexico (let's go back!!!), algebra 2 (thanks for always being so gracious and willing to help me!!), driving in our sweet yellow Xterra, Na 08....the list is endless because every time I'm doing something with you, we end up making it a blast!
Jes, ever since I can remember, you have always displayed a servant's heart. I am always provoked by your example of being so quick to serve others and to always be the first person to welcome new people.

I love you so,sO, SO, SOOOOOOOO much girl and I love sharing a birthday with you! I can't wait to see what the Lord has for us this year and I am excited to make tons more memories with my fav sis ever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
love ~your one and only,
Yferf :)
