Happy Birthday Amanda!

Amanda is 27 on thet 27th! Wow! Amanda, if you'll think back to an earlier post of mine, you will recall that I said one of my resolutions was to be better at remembering birthdays. Because we've been friends for so long your bday is ingrained in my head, BUT that didn't help me to remember to send you a card. Bad Marie! BAD!

Anyway, we've been friends for a long time. A looooong time. 12+ years. In fact, my very first bday gift to you was a Spice Girls cd (remember when we went to see the movie in the theater?)! We've been through a lot together:

high school:
riverdancing in your room
three way phone calls with different people in your room (sitting next to each other)
family trips
skipping school to go to McDonalds.
youth group

learning about Jesus together
more dancing
the derb
fights/making up
"Marie let's pick up the room today!"
meeting John/Devin
going tubing in the snow
Lilly's birth
trying to share Erica's graduation robe!

I honestly don't know what I'd do without you. God must have had you in mind when I didn't get a sister. Happy birthday! I love you!

Because I can't be there to dance for you, this will have to do:

Okay. So, to make up for not being here for my birthday you must memorize all of the choreography from this video and then reenact it when I come visit. You should get Addison in on it too. You could be a team. :) Deal?

P.S. It really is amazing how much we've been through together. And I agree, I think God gave us each other since we didn't have any sisters! I am SO blessed to have you. You are the best friend a girl could want! Love you!
