Two in one...



These are two of my favorite people who are also really close to each other so posting them together seemed like the right plan :)
I met both of them through MC...see doing crazy thing's like MC can bring such wonderful things to your life!!! Amy was in my class, and my very first memory of her is seeing her walking down the hall at Tahoma Jr High and Kate telling me that it was her cousin. Moving, isnt it. My next memory of her is the fact that every day she would bring a frozen water bottle to class...one morning as we were all arriving and putting our stuff in our cubbys, Amy set her solid frozen water bottle on the shelf and it rolled off and smacked Nikki, who was putting her stuff in a bottom shelf, in the head. You could have cut the tension with a knife..... I dont even really know how we became friends, but we did and she is priceless!!! While she was interning for MC she came and lived with Angie, Olivia and I. Then Amy suggested that her crazy friend come and live with us too.....and what an adventure that was!!!! LOL!!! One time Ames and I were riding her Seadoo...well actually when you ride the Seadoo with Amy you only ride it for at a time and all the rest of the time she is trying to get us off, and this particular time we flew off so hard and fast that when we hit the water we were still in the sitting position...my arms were still around her waist. We could not stop laughing!!! Of course, hysterically laughing while you are treading water is very dangerous and potentially deadly. I love you Amy! You are wonderful and I am so glad you are my friend.
Leilani, Leilani.....first memory of Lei, I was living with the Strattons (who didnt live with them?? they are so giving and wonderful) and she was a new student for MC coming to live with them. She had called the house when no one was home and left a message that I will never forget...she sounded like she was on suger and crack all at the same time! She was so excited about coming and talking a million miles a minute. We all laughed and wondered what she was going to be like in person. Of course when we met her everything made sense! She is a wonderful expressive ball of energy and personality all wrapped up in one! We have had a lot of fun together and made wonderful memeories. Here is a crazy story that shows how small the world is. Leilani went to YWAM in Hawaii a year before Curt did. When I was first getting to know Curt I was telling him about my friends and about Leilani who lives in California. He kept saying to me, she sounds so familier. Then he put two and two together. When he went to YWAM all his leaders would talk about this girl LeiLani that had been there the season before him! So he knew her without really knowing her. And it is so true with Lei, if you meet her once you will never forget her :) Now she is a wife and a mother!! She just gave birth to Max in September. I cant wait to meet him. I dont get to see her a lot with her living in Cali and now me in Denver but thank God for email and cell phones! I love you Lei. You are very special to me.

I adore Amy - she is so hilarious. I wouldn't want to ever make her mad - she is one tough cookie :) I love her!

The story about the water bottle is so funny. I will never forget that day as well. I have told people that story so many times! Funny times!

Kelli! I just found this!!! Yesss! i made your blog - so validating! You're so special to me, too! Sugar and crack at the same time - nice! Yes, Max is in for an adventure (and a lot of embarassment!) I love you! let's talk soon!

This is Amy speaking: " I felt the need to defend myself! I'm gonna beat all of you up for saying this crap about me behind my back! I had no idea that there was this underground world of blogging where people were talking about me! this is the first blog I've seen and I'm very perturbed that my name, picture and reputation are being smeared! I've changed, damn you! Is there any chance I'm gonna get a date out of this? Cause then, it's worth it. Okay, carry on your gossip. Now that I know about this whole blog thing, I'll be watching you all. always watching."
