Happy Day To You

This is my sister Kelli. You might think it's weird that my parents named 2 daughters with the same name. Considering my family hosts approximately 100 Sam's and about 50 versions of Keli (Kelli, Kelly), it's not that unusual.


But you got me, she's not my sister by blood. She's married to that hot man, my other sister Troy. He's the favorite.

Kelli might as well be a blood sister. I love her like she's always been in my life. In fact, it's hard to remember that she wasn't always around! She shares our sick sense of humor, although not to the degree that I do, and she can hold her own around certain members of the family.

Things I love about Kelli are:
  • She loves the outdoors. She would rather go for a bike ride than for a day at the spa.
  • She loves to be right. She will argue until she wins. So don't bother!
  • She is very spiritual, but she doesn't think she is.
  • She keeps my brother on the straight and narrow.
  • She has an awesome sense of style. Her house is gorgeous, and totally "her".
  • She is a great mother. Her kids are awesome, and very respectful. But they still know how to have fun!
  • She isn't afraid of anything. She's always up for an adventure.
  • She manages to keep it all together; work, church, kids, home, and she makes it seem effortless.
I love you Kelli! I miss you so much! I'm so glad you're part of our family! Happy birthday!

There are a lot of Kelis, Kellis, Kellies, and Kellys in the world - but all the ones I know are wonderful!!

Hope your sis-in-law has a great day. Any friend of yours is a friend of mine!

(There are a lot of September birthdays too - I should know, I contributed to the crowd!!)

I love her too! She needs to lighten up on herself. She is perfect and can't see it! Anyone that has to work with our Dad is perfect!! Just like our Mom!

That is the cutest picture of Kelli and Troy. She fits your family perfectly. Lucky you all to have her in your life and lucky her to have you all. :)

Sniff, Sniff! I am the one that is so lucky to be a part of your family! Thank you so much, I don't know what else I can say through the tears.

She is the greatest, and must be the favorite since she is married to the favorite. :)

We love you Kelli. I love you, and am thankful for all you do. You are the only sister I have left close by, and I am SO thankful for you! Hope you had a very special day!
