We, too, are wonderfully thankful for 25 years ago today. We resonate with each of the 25 things you appreciate her for--and to throw in one more as we move into Erin's 26th year, we are delighted that she has such a delightfully warm and positive relationship with her grandparents--all four of us. We love you, Erin!

Is it acceptable for a mom to say how proud she is of her daughters? I sure am.

We too love your sister--and the picture you included is SO sweet!! We had the privilege of spending her 25th birthday with her DAD!!! We had 6 wonderful days with him, helping us explore our adopted state of Arizona. He left this morning--having loved being here but I'm sure with a new appreciation for the Oregon we all love (Just not all the rain!!) Love to you all!! Kakee
