It's Sissy's Birthday


I won't tell you her age, because if I did, then you could figure out how old I am, since I am 5 years older. :) But she is over 40 and that is all I am going to say. :) She lives in Boone, NC (ASU country) and they are having a winter blizzard right now. Sissy is what she calls me, but her name is Valda. I have always thought of it being a unique name. I have never heard it anywhere else. But Valda is a unique person. We live about 60 miles apart. She lives near my Mom and takes care of her, Mom has some health issues, so what a blessing I have in Sissy to know she is right in Mom's backdoor if Mom needs her. After my HS graduation, I left home and she was only 12. We have grown closer the older we get.

Here is a picture of her and I at Christmas, doing what we love to do. Cook and Bake and EAT!

O.K. I know she will never speak to me again, but here are some pictures that she wouldn't want me to show. But you see that is what sisters do!!!

This next one is a picture of her signature cake that she is famous for. Red Velvet in case you can't tell
Then this next one is a true depiction of what I have to put up with. Yes I do fear for my life. *wink*

There is nothing better than the love of sisters. As we get older its one of the things that makes life worth living gets us through the rough times. You two are lucky to have each other.*

Not many people are as fortunate as I am to have my sister also be my best friend. I love you with all my heart!

Would love to have my three sisters living around me but alas, I chose to get married at 16 and the day I got married, my family moved to Connecticut for a couple of years and that was 50 years ago!
Love the pictures!!!

You are luck Shelia to have sisters. As an only child, I always wished for a sibling. But I consider you my sister through angels. Happy Birthday Valda. I like the way untraditional cake looks.
