Today is a very special day…..today my baby sister turns 22!!!! 22 I literally cannot believe it. When she was a baby every morning I would wake up before my parents so I could be the one to wake her and get her out of her crib. I just loved her so much……. I would never leave her. I literally became the teachers assistant at Church and Dance because I could not leave her alone. For real.

 Wasn’t she the cutest? She looks just like my Dad…………

 She was born with legs for days……. it took her years to grow into them!

 This was her Sweet 16 party that we had at Red Pin Bowling alley in Bricktown…. the theme was pink!

This was Marissa’s Sr Prom when she was nominated for Prom Queen!! She was my Greek Goddess!

Marissa graduated at the top of her class while being Sr. Class President in HS and next month Marissa will graduate from OU with honors. She has already been accepted into Grad School at OU as well as the position of Graduate Teaching Assistant for a professor! 

This is the FIRST year in 22 years I will have not been able to celebrate her Birthday with her! Crazy! Wish I cold snap my fingers but I am sending all my love across the miles!!!!

Happy Birthday Roonie!

    Your poor daddy must have had a heck of time trying to keep boys away from both you and her! Beauties!
