My sister, source of all my athletic apparel and shoes, creative cog, ultimate procrastinator and my original tag-along.  It's hard to believe that you are 24 today and a grown adult with a grown-up job.  You will always be a small little munchkin with a bowl haircut in my mind.  I'm so proud of you and everything you've accomplished.  I'm proud of how well you handled snowboarding two weeks ago and what a trooper you've become.  You used to cry at EVERYTHING until you got your way and now I can't even remember the last time I saw you cry or even whine.  I'm proud of you for helping to watch after mom & dad and for being such a respectful and responsible daughter.  I'm looking forward to celebrating your birthday with you this weekend with tons of cake and many laughs.
