Jenny's 26th Birthday is today!



Today is Jenny's 26th birthday. I can't believe that much time has flown by! Jenny is my daughter that is pregnant (due in Jan.). She is such a strong young woman and I love her so much! She and Megan have an extremely strong bond with each other, which is wonderful to see in sisters. I could probably count on 1 hand the amount of disagreements they've had. Jennifer Ann McDermitt was born on 5/15/1983 at 11:55 a.m. and weighed 7 lbs. 11 ozs and she was 21 1/2 inches long. She was a very easy baby, always laughing but always watching everything and everyone. To this day she is very observant and lively. When Jenny got married last year she wore my wedding dress and I gave her a necklace that was my grandmothers. She is an extremely special person and is going to make an amazing mother. Jenny has had many struggles in her life but has overcome every one of them. When she was 3 yrs. old she was burned by a hot air vaporizer and was the burn unit for 9 days and almost passed away but she rallied and came back even stronger. She went on to become #1 in the state (NJ) for her ski racing and slalom racing when she was a sophomore in high school. When she was 20 she was coming home from college and a firetruck ran a red light and t-boned her (she was driving a little red VW beetle) but she came through with minor injuries and was stronger than ever! She has accomplished alot in her life especially with her art and photography talents. She is an awesome daughter, wife and in a few months she will be an awesome Mom. Happy Birthday to you sweet Jenny!

Happy Birthday to Jenny! This was such a beautiful tribute to her, Sherri. I can see why you're so proud of her. I love her wearing your dress and the special necklace. Congratulations on your grandchild to be. I'm really, really happy for you.

Your daughter is beautiful! This was such a nice post. It must have been very difficult for you as her mom to deal with some of those hurdles in her life. Her strength probably gave you strength. Happy Birthday to both of you!!


Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
