A Special Day

It is a special day today.
I was six years old when I found out I had a new baby sister.
She was my third.
I had only been two and three the last time I was given the news.
This time I was old enough to understand, and I was thrilled.
She was beautiful.
And she still is.

I babysat her a lot.
Sometimes it went well... sometimes not so much.
Dear JJ,
I'm sorry about stuffing you into the baby doll carriage and getting you stuck.
I hope the nightmares have subsided.

We miss you and H and Hubs.
Can't wait until your next visit.
No matter your age...
You're still my Cool Sister.

Below is her birthday tribute from last year.
Many of you weren't around a year ago,
So I thought I would share it with you again.
A few things have changed for that beautiful little boy in her arms.
So not only is she my Cool Sister, now, she is also a Cool Mom!
And we couldn't be happier for her.

A Birthday Wish For My Sister

It is my sister's birthday today.
She is my youngest sister. 

She is a big city girl, and always was.  
She is a cool chick!

She is also a movie star.

I'm not kidding.
She starred in a Canadian movie.
(I told you she was cool)

She studied to become a professional dancer

 and actress.

She loves to laugh, and I love that.
She has a way of seeing things from a different perspective and I love her for that too.  
I also love her for her cool hats.
I also love her eyes... and her shoes, she has great hair too. 
She has great taste in sisters, I really love that about her.
I also love that she isn't afraid of change.

 Today she makes hundreds of kids very happy, as they have the most enthusiastic, organized and compassionate teacher one could ask for.

 Plus she makes them do the silly dance.
I always wished I could be more like her.
She is starting yet another chapter in her life, and will soon be a mom, and we couldn't be more excited for her and hubby. 

She is the world's best aunty, so all I can say is...
"You lucked out kid, you are going to have sooo much fun..."

Happy Birthday Sister : )

We love you very much here at Bungalow'56 and wish we could see you more often.

Enjoy your celebrating!  
We are thinking of you... and know that, that crazy guy you married will make sure you have a very special day. (...and if he forgot let's hope he reads this blog)

We would like to especially thank him for sharing all of these beautiful photos of you with us. 
He has some amazing photography talent that inspires me! 

We are wishing for you, a Birthday that is as beautiful as you are!
