Joel - You've always been my favorite cousin and I cherish all of our random AIM conversations. AIM is gone now! We have to actually text! This kid, not really a kid, is one of the sweetest guys on the planet. He cared more for my family (on the other side) than some people who were on that side of the family. He also found himself a really good girl, and came to Indiana and got her Vera Bradley.
McKenna - I am so excited you are joining our family! You have been a fantastic influence on Joel for years... seriously years! Who knows where he would be without you!
Jim and Julia - If there was an award for the most entertaining couple ever, you would get it. This may be because you guys are rolling out puns to frazzle my dad and throw him off his game. Jim, you got the relaxed gene of the Sarjeant's so you should be proud of that. Julia, I still use that blanket you made. I have had people ask where I got it and I'm like, it's mine. It was made for me. Go away. I also appreciate the fact you guys got my mom out of this country. She never would have taken an adventure on her own. You deserve a medal.
For the record, I am not neglecting Larry, Stacey, Lafe and Callie! They are all wonderful, but I haven't seen them since I was fairly young! I love seeing them on social media as well!
