Happy Birthday Sis

Many, many moons ago (I'd tell you how many but I don't want to make the b-day girl mad:) the stork made a special deliver to the Anderson household with baby Cynthia Mariuna Anderson--and my life hasn't been the same since!

I know most kids are excited about getting a baby brother or sister. Although I don't remember the specifics, I do remember not being that enthused about this new "bundle of joy"...Baby Cynthia was noisy and messy and she wasn't that fun to play with. Luckily for me, my mom and dad didn't take my advice of sending her back as she has turned out to be a great sister with many wonderful skills including:Booty Shaker: Cynthia is the resident booty shaker for our family. That means if there is a luau, she has to shake those tahitian hips of hers. It is also a little known fact that in her younger college years, Cynthia used to enjoy shaking her booty at Provo's own, Club Omni. (I made sure to go anytime Cynthia was going so that I could chaperone.)Babysitter:I'd be broke if I had to pay Cynthia for all the times that she watched the kids when she was living in Utah. The good thing is since she watched them so much if they have any bad habits I can always blame them on her! This is a pic from when the kids and I went out to visit the "babysitter" after she moved away.
Person not to rob a bank with: It is a well known fact in our family that Cynthia cannot keep a secret. And although our family does not spend a lot of time talking about robbing banks, I know who not to take with me if I ever plan a robbery. This was a photo from the ONE time Cynthia kept a secret when we flew in from Utah and surprised for my mom for her 50th b-day.

Travel Companion--From Tahiti to Chicago to the "pyramids" of Las Vegas, if the fam is going on a trip we can usually count on the assistance of our resident kid wrangler, Auntie Cynthia, to join us.
And last, but not least, Best Friend. I didn't realize how much Cynthia and I talked until she moved away. And although I miss seeing her all time time like we did when she lived in Utah, thank goodness for unlimited long distance because the kids and I can still talk to Cynthia anytime we want!!

Happy Birthday Cynthia!!
