Hope your sister has a great birthday!

We have that same tradition about calling really early in the morning. It's fun!

Our family has the same silly tradition: ) My grandfather(who passed away 5 years ago) was the best at this and he used to call at the butt crack of dawn(his words) and sing so off key and so loud and long it took forever to get him off the phone! It used to be really embarrassing, especially in college, but now I really miss it. Happy Birthday to your sister!


Awww...this is so sweet. Happy birthday, Kristen!


landed by searching birthday stuff, Happy birthday to your little sister :)
