Jenny

This is my sister Jenny.

Jenny 3

She is an adoring aunt to my kids. She likes to watch them play and she smiles at their antics. Or frowns at them, if they are messing with her stuff or generally being bad.



Jenny 4

But mostly she smiles.

Jenny loves football and country music, which makes my football fan children and our location in Nashville a pretty darn near perfect fit with her interests. But that’s just happy coincidence. She’d adore these three kids if they were into underwater-knitting and lived in Kalamazoo.

Jenny 6

Bear says, “My like Jenny. Jenny nice.” (He’s a smart bear.)

One time when I was pregnant, we were discussing what the sex of the baby might be and she said, "Well, it's going to be a boy or a girl."

Now that's some solid, Midwestern common sense talking right there.

This week Jenny has a birthday. She's 29 (wink) (again).

Happy Birthday Jenny!

Aunts are so incredibly important. I'm glad they have a good one....as do mine.

Relationships that make you feel special are the the cherry on top.

Hope she has a happy birthday and a great year!

Amy, this made me cry when I read it. Your sister is super special. I love her to pieces as well. It was so good to see her on Sunday. And I loved that she popped right up from her chair when I hugged your mom so I could hug her too. Happy Birthday Jenny!!! XOX
