Happy Birthday Jennifer

My sweet niece Jennifer had a birthday on the 20th. Since she lived with us for a couple of years she is like another sister to me and my kids. We miss her now that we aren't seeing her everyday. We never get to spend her birthday with her because she goes on a mission trip each year during that week. We appreciate her doing these mission trips but we really would like to have her with us. We tried to celebrate last month when she was here. Mike couldn't wait and had to give her an early gift he had gotten her... but, it was just not the same...
Here are some of our favorite things about Jennifer:
