I would dearly love to get your Pirate Jackie and my daughter, Nikki, together some time for a photo shoot. It never ceases to amaze me how much they resemble. Everytime I see Jackie's picture, I do a double-take!

How blessed you are with such a daughter, beautiful inside and out!

Happy birthday! Did she get a pirate cake? :)

You guys really did things right, you have such wonderful children and they are spread out enough that you don`t have to worry about an empty nest for a long, long time. :)
