Happy Birthday Jean!

A couple weeks ago, my sister Nancy celebrated her birthday and was featured here.  Today, my other sister Jean turns a year older and gets the same treatment.
As I wrote then and as I have written and stated many times, I love both of my sisters dearly.  We are competitive, sarcastic and sometimes (good-naturedly) petty, but I always feel loved and special around them.
I had a lot of great times with Jean's family in Houston, but I am glad they are back.  We still have a lot of great times and now they are just an hour away (although sometimes, they probably wish they were farther away).
Jean is always calm, despite petty (but highly competitive) wagering between Scott, Matt and me.  She even carefully avoids taking sides.
As I keep writing, I have two great sisters and they have two wonderful families.  I am very lucky they are all in my life.
Today, I hope everyone joins me in sending good birthday vibes Jean's way.  Happy birthday Jean.  I love you.
Nancy and Jean in Fox River Grove, IL-December 2012.
