I've had a sister for 18 years now....

I love my sister...Me and my brother argue sometimes, but me and my sister NEVER fight. Today was her 18th birthday.I can honestly say that I remember the day she was born. I was wearing my favorite "jelly" shoes, and my hot pink leggings. I got to hold her, and I can remember kissing her head. HONESTLY I can. We had a rough patch when I was in high school, where we DID argue, but the last couple of years we have been especially close. Lots of tears today. it's milestone events like this, that make it really hard to live without my brother. At one point my youngest niece was walking around the room with a roll of tp, and looking up at everyone in the face, and asking "Are you crying?" I'm SO SO SO thankful for you Bethany Rose Holton. I love you.

Refuge-Angel Game Fieldtrip.

So, we took some of our high schoolers to an angels game tonight. It was TONS of fun. It was Eah's first game, and she had an EXTREMELY large amount of energy ALL night, thanks to her doting father, (gummy bears, and cotton candy had NOTHING to do with it....) I always forget that people get drunk @ Baseball games....and this one guy....the half italian, half irish guy...sitting in front of us....oh man....he was one of are some pictures of our fabulous evening <3>

Those boys are hairy...
