Happy Birthday, Shanna!

Shanna is...

... a mother of four who gives it her all:

 ... married to a daredevil:

... a generous person who runs marathons for charity with her sister Cheri:

... is on a soccer team that wins state championships:

... is a beautiful woman, inside and out.  Shanna is also funny, supportive, and is always there when you need her.  Shanna is my step-daughter and my friend:

Shanna, your Dad and I hope that you have a wonderful birthday and the best year ever.  

We love you lots!

Kathy and Dad

Okay, I couldn't help but to sneak 
in one from when she was little:

Shanna, Randy and Cheri

Hi Lisa,

She's quite the gal! Those guys in the green underwears crack me up though. And, Shanna's husband is really the guy in the photo ... he inspects bridges.

It's great that you have a wonderful relationship with Shanna! What a great ode to her. Btw, thanks for rejoicing with me about the Mom Cave results over at Susan. I haven't heard the news til you left me a comment so thanks to you :)
