Happy Birthday Kelli G.

Happy, Happy Birthday to my dear & wonderful & beautiful Best Friend, Kelli G!!! She's really no longer Kelli G. but those near and dear to me know that we refer to her as Kelli G. (I've got my Kelli G and my Kelli Kelly...I've been BLESSED with Kelli's!!!).

Kelli & I have been friends since BEFORE kindergarten. She is most certainly my longest friend...and what a friendship it has been!!!

Here we are our senior year with Brian (her hubby)...

Kelli & I pretty much know everything & anything about each other...ya know with those life long friends it's hard to have any secrets. We know each others' families like they are our own! We grew up together ~ right around the corner, graduated together (close in line in fact...both G's!), remained friends throughout college, were in each others' weddings, moved off to Dallas (different times though!), and...

Best of all, we got pregnant about the same time. I had Walker nine days before she had Kate. This was the icing on the cake...we have truly shared EVERYTHING together. We both are extremely close to our sisters, but still have room for us to be just like sisters, too! Check us out preggers...

This was shortly after Kate & Walker were born. I'm not going to post anymore pictures of Kate & Walker on this post...that is a WHOPPER of a post that has been brewing in my mind for months and months. I love Kate like she is my own! Walker & Kate have a love story like no other...hopefully I'll get the post done before their rehearsal dinner.

Kelli and I basically talk on the phone everyday...and we never run out of things to say! We can also sit on my couch & talk for hours upon hours (usually while the kids make a HUGE mess in the other rooms...but it's always worth it!).

Through it all ~ happy times, try outs, kankles, basketball, births, trips, jobs, walks, French class, moves, sad times, birthdays, wrinkles, play dates, & lots of phone calls ~ she has stuck with me like no other friend. I can call Kelli for ANYTHING, ANYTIME. She has a heart of pure platinum! This is evident through her job, the way she loves (especially her Kate Kate, nieces, nephew, hubby & even me!), and her tender heart! Kelli is positive & has one of the best outlooks on life I've ever known. She is generous beyond belief & fun, fun, funny!!!

I cherish my Kelli G and it makes me cry to think about how wonderful she is to my family & me (and everyone else she knows!). Troy, Walker, Hadlee and I love her to death!
Happy Birthday Beautiful Kelli G!!!
We love our Co Co!

I don't know where I've been, but I know I missed this when you posted it. Such a sweet heartfelt post....just love it!! It looks like you two share a very special bond. I loved the pictures from the 90's......isn't it funny how much we change in such a short amount of time? You both are beautiful girls and I enjoyed reading about all you've shared!
