Happy Birthday Rebekah!

Rebekah is my lifelong BFF. We met on the first day of third grade at Creston Elementary School and have been close ever since (going on 20 years! Wow!) We've spent tons of time together doing all sorts of fun and silly things.

Our oldest girls were babies together (Claire is 8 months older than Anna) and as a new, young mom I don't know how I would have survived without Rebekah's friendship or wisdom. Seriously. I was 22 years old when Anna was born and I didn't know anyone else having babies. I remember being pregnant and going over to her house and seeing her with her new baby Claire and feeling so encouraged. She even happened to be at my house when I went into labor with Anna, and hung out until Kevin got home to take me to the hospital. I miss her terribly but got to visit her and her sweet girls while we were in California.

Now our daughters Anna and Claire have a special bond. It's amazing.

Anyway, today is Rebekah's birthday and I had to do a shout-out on my blog. Happy Birthday RJ!!!

Now check out these rockin' pictures of us.

What was up with clothing styles in junior high? I had a very similar pair of culottes.

I LOVE the 90's clothes, it is so "Friends". And lucky you, you got the grey grad gowns, I think I was the last year of looking like a lovely pumpkin! Happy birthday Rebekah! (Does she read this?)

Brianna, seriously? Yanni? I'm embarrassed FOR you.

Happy birthday to Rebekah nonetheless.

Ha, Andy, I've always disliked Yanni. I believe were actually making fun of him. :) (I promise!!!!!)
