Shout Out to the SIL on her Birthday!

Let's hear it for SAM!!! Sam has a birthday today, so you should all be sure to wish her the best. She's my first SIL and she's also one of my very best friends. It also helps that she has great taste in clothes, movies, books, and friends. We aren't celebrating until Saturday, but today's the real deal.
Happy Birthday SAM!

My favorite story about SAM:

Think back...WAY back to the time when you and Shark Daddy had no idea how perfect you were for each other. Shark Daddy was still living in the apartment below me. SAM came to visit her darling brother and I got to meet her for the first time. After going to church with us she excitedly approached me and asked, "Who was the lady who was up there in Relief Society, today?" I said, "Oh, that is Lucy. Isn't she great? You should hear her sing." SAM leaned in closely to whisper that she just new that you were meant for her brother. At the time I chuckled a bit and sympathetically held her hand as I explained that I knew you both and I just simply couldn't imgaine you two together. I said, laughingly, "Ooooh no, not Lucy and Shark Daddy. They are so very different. I don't think they would ever get together." To my credit, at the time you both agreed with me, but SAM gets the last laugh on us all because she knew. Somehow, just upon seeing you, she knew.

Happy Birthday, SAM!

Too funny! Sam, is Samantha, not Shannon M. I love that story though. You can repeat it when we give a shout out for Shannon's birthday. :)

*BLUSH* Oops, I just figured that Sam was a code name for Shannon. I forget that you have others in your family.

Sam, Happy Birthday anyway =)
