A tale of two SISTAS!

Ok kids, gather 'round!  It's story time! 

Once upon a time there were two girls that met across a stack of books in Tuesday Toddlers class.  When they locked eyes, it was almost like two super heroes' powers met and together they became stronger and more powerful than ever before!  Their moms each sprouted their first gray hair just thinking about the girls' futures together.  Kids, this world is a more magical place because of the bond between these girls.

Second Grade 1989
 Years passed.  The girls grew up and the force only got stronger!  Born from different parents, these girls were sisters at heart!  They laughed, cried, argued, yelled, and talked behind each others' back (come on, you know you did!). 
8th Grade Semi-Formal - Feb. 3, 1996
They shared a breakfast of beef stick and Easy Cheese a time or two and wore matching penguin shirts.

They stayed up until the early morning singing and dancing for an audience of nobody.

They attempted the impossible... cooking!

They were the light of each others' life!  They were the true definition of best friends.

Eventually, the earth realized the power of this magical duo and tried to split them apart.  Miles separated them but their hearts were still high-fiving each other.  Their force was still as strong as ever!

 These two girls have gotten older and have moved into different corners of life.  Months sometimes go by without them seeing each other but their bond is still strong.  They immediately pick up where they left off.  After a quarter-century long relationship, there is no stopping them!  Jackie DeShannon is a force to be reckoned with!
