Lauren & Kalli - Friends Forever and Always

When my daughter was born I was working part time....three days a week.  I was fortunate to have my mother-in-law take care of Lauren (and later two of her younger brothers) the majority of the time.  My mother-in-law also took care of three other children whose parents were both school teachers.  Their oldest two were twins and were two years old, then a baby girl named Kalli.  Kalli was exactly a month older than Lauren so it was almost like having two sets of twins to care for!  Not a problem for my mother-in-law who had six children (plus 15 or more others when they were house parents for a children's home) - the first two being twins!

Fast forward 18 years.  Recently Kalli celebrated her 18th birthday and Lauren will be 18 in a few weeks.  You see....Lauren and Kalli were best buds from their cribs.  They're actually more like cousins than just friends.  Their friendship has lasted, grown, and even changed and blossomed over the years.

Kalli moved away after 3rd grade, but the girls have remained very close.  Thankfully they've been able to enjoy many activites together, even though they live two hours apart. For Kalli's birthday, Lauren made her a special scrapbook.

Since my goal is to eventually print out a book for each of my children with posts from this blog about them, I wanted to share the book with you.  Here is the slide show of the book.

I hope you enjoy looking at the adventures of Lauren and Kalli!  At the end there are a few pictures of the inside of their "A-Z Designs" book.  Not sure when they made that book, but I remember it!  So cute and special!

I am GRATEFUL for this special friendship between these two girls.  What a blessing to have such as special friend!
