Happy Birthday Jennifer Rose

20 years ago today we had our first daughter Jennifer.
Her birth was very memorable as the Dr. was late and they told me not to push....
I still have hip problems today from listening to those nurses!!!! NEVER AGAIN :)
And I also fainted a couple of times when in labor with her.
So ya, memorable :)
And when the Dr. said she was a girl I didn't believe him. I was so sure that I would have a boy.
I realize now that I didn't dare hope for a girls because I didn't want to be disappointed!!!


Here are 20 things that I know about Jen.

1. She likes a challenge and an adventure.

3. She likes animals....like A LOT!
4. One winter when she was about 4 yrs. old, she got caught by the pant leg of her snowsuit, upside down in a tree.

9. She doesn't really like to dress up.
10. She likes to do Sudoku puzzles.
11. Horse back riding is one of her favorite pass times.
`12. She likes to have a good run now and then.
