A Day Late and Dollar Short

March is a busy month for birthdays. Yesterday was Amy's birthday. I meant to post something yesterday but got sidetracked and never got around to it. So I am doing it now. Happy Birthday Amy!! I am so glad she moved back to Idaho. It has been fun having a sister around. Amy really does a lot to help us out. She has loaned us cars, babysat, helped us move, and always comes over to our house for birthday parties (it is a long drive). She is always willing to help out me and everyone else. She is a good friend to everybody. If you are ever wondering what is going on in someone's life who you have not talked to in 5 years, just ask Amy because she just talked to them last week. I don't know where she finds the time to work 5 jobs, take care of her kids and house, have about 125 very close friends, and still manage to watch Alias. My favorite story about Amy is when we flew to Las Vegas last year and there was this really white trash girl sitting in front of us. She was cussing and swearing and being obnoxious. She was pretty slutting too. The whole flight she was talking very loudly, making plan to meet up with the guy sitting next to her and talking about how she is so excited to go to Vegas and get drunk and have fun. Everyone on the plane was really annoyed. As soon as we landed Amy walked straight over to this older couple and started joking with them about the girl. We walked with them to the train thing, rode with them to the other side of the airport, walked to together to get our luggage and left the airport with them. Amy was talking with them so easily and joking the whole time. I almost felt like I needed to give them a hug goodbye and was suprised that she didn't. When we finally parted ways with them I ask her how she knew them and she said that she never met them before in her life. She is always like that. She can talk to whoever and it seems as though she has always known them when in fact they are a total stranger. I am sure a lot people remember her. My kids just came over and I lost my train of thought.....Anyways, Happy Birthday, I love you, sorry I didn't get you a gift. I will get you one in a few months.

You took my kids for a full 24 hours. I am pretty sure that is worth a couple birthday gifts, I may actually owe you! Thanks, sorry I was on the phone when you came by.

Happy birthday Amy! I think you are great too. No offense to anyone else, but when I first met the Morgan family Amy was the only one that didn't scare me. I would do anything with the family as long as Amy was going to be there. She always made me feel comfortable. That is a hard thing to pull off so kudos and sorry this is so late.

I love Amy! I have always admired her for so many reasons, especially how she is always a friend to EVERYBODY. She is always willing to help people and is so thoughtful. Happy (late) Birthday Amy!

When I first got engaged to Shed, Amy was one of the first people I met and my first thought was...."Saweet! I married up!" I've liked Amy from the first second I met her.
