happy birthday aunt Essie!

This is one of our favorite people! She has become like family to us, and the girls adore Essie so much! I wish you could all meet her too! We treated her for lunch @ a favorite restaurant across town - which has thee best chocolate cake.

Also, Sydney is wearing the same dress that I (Ali) wore when I was little. It has lasted thru all three girls, and is almost 29 years old!! Whoa - thanks Aunt Nancy!! ...and thanks mom for saving it! I think Sydney and I might look a little bit alike too. Crazy!!
