have I ever told you how great of a sister I have?
Lucky for me, I have 2.
But today, 1 in particular is very special.
Today, it's Callie Christines 21st Birthday!
I can't believe another year has gone by and we get to celebrate this glorious day of birth together again!
I honestly can't put into words why I love this girl so much. She is one of the GREATEST people I know, and I'm not just saying that because she is my sister. She is one of my best friends and I am grateful to have her in my life. We have only lived away from each other for about 18 months before she came out to college so I feel pretty lucky.

Callie Christine is such a fun person to be around! She always knows how to spice things up a bit and will make you laugh! So whenever you are down, talk to this girl. I promise she can brighten up your day!
Callie Christine LOVES Lake Powell! I think it's a requirement to be a part of our family. We enjoy going there during the summer for some relaxing days in the sun with the fam bam. I think she would agree it's the best part of our summer!
Callie Christine likes to joke around. She doesn't get offended over silly things and will just laugh when people are being ridiculous. She's serious when she needs to be, but knows how to have fun!
Callie Christine LOVES her fam bam. We all enjoy being around one another! Nowadays it's so rare for us to all be together so she takes advantage of those opportunities and enjoys every minute she has with her family.
Callie Christine LOVES those Braves! As you can tell, that is another requirement to be in our family. She is no fair weather fan. It's fun to have a family who will be just as crazy and insane with you when you are at the game or watching it at home.
Callie Christine takes her role as a sister very seriously. She is concerned for each and every sibling, in any kind of condition. She especially will look out for her younger siblings. Like this one time when Lexie passed out at Six Flags, Callie caught her when she fell and made sure she was okay before we did anything else. You know she loves and cares for every single one of us.
Callie Christine is such an example to me and everyone she knows. She loves to serve. She's always has a positive attitude when it comes to doing any kind of service activity and will always gather a big group of people to come participate and make it a fun experience.
Callie Christine is extremely lovable. She loves to show her affection for her family and friends and loves hugs. I love coming up to her just to have a hug every once and awhile. She knows how to make people feel loved and important in her life.
Callie Christine will be just as crazy and as insane with me. We are pretty dedicated to our teams. This one time we slept overnight outside the Marriott Center at BYU in January (freezing weather) so we could have good seats for a basketball game the next day. Crazy.
Callie Christine is a hardworker. She worked hard to graduate a semester early and go to BYU. She also is a very good student and will work hard to get those good grades. And on top of that busy life, she works every day. What a trooper she is.
Callie Christine is a great cook! She loves to make delicious food and is always up for the challenge to make new things! I like being around her to eat the great food that she makes!
Callie Christine is the definition of a good friend. She is someone I can trust. I can tell her anything knowing that she won't spread it around. That being said, she is a great listener and someone I can always talk to. It's such a blessing to be close to my sister. I know I can always count on her and turn to her for anything.
So my dear sister, Happy Happy 21st Birthday! I hope you had a fantastic day! You deserve only the best! Here's to many more years of celebration! I love you so much!
and from the wise words of our little sister, Lexie:
"you can drink now. but you shouldn't. but if you choose to that's okay cause it's your birthday."
