September 21-27...

...is one of my favorite weeks out of the year! Why? Three of my favorite people celebrate birthdays in the same week. Each of these three people are very important to me. I love them each for very different reasons and more than words could actually express. Without these three people, my life would not be the same!
Alison Camp (Thompson)


The week starts with Thompson celebrating her birthday first (Sept. 22nd). Thompson and I have been best friends since the first day of volleyball two-a-days our freshman year of high school. We grew up across the street together, rarely spending a night apart. We have been through many highs and lows together and have celebrated birthdays, mourned loss of loved ones, helped mend broken hearts, celebrated marriages and also births. She held my hand through some of the roughest days of my life. She will always hold a special place in my heart. Happy birthday Thomp! I love you!

Randi JoAnne Mavroulis


The next birthday we celebrate is my baby sister Randi (Sept. 23) who has always been a ray of sunshine. We are so alike in many ways, yet so different. Even though we are 13 years apart, we are best friends. It is hard to believe that she will turn 16 this year... watch out world, here she comes! She has grown into a beautiful young lady and a woman of God who seeks Him daily (hard to find in high schools today)! Happy birthday sis! I love you!!

Camden Jaye Ocheskey

Wrapping up the week of birthday celebrations is my baby girl Camden. She will turn two this year. YIKES! Where has the time gone? I remember bringing her home from the hospital like it was only yesterday. She is a loving, energetic little girl who can brighten a day in flash of an eye. She has filled our lives with so much joy. I look forward to many years of love and laughter with this little angel. We have been blessed. Happy birthday baby girl! Your Daddy and I LOVE YOU!

awwwww! What a sweet post! We have been through a ton together, and I couldn't have picked a better person to share my life with! I can't believe RAndi is 16. It seems like yesterday she was learning to talk and following us around at all those CHS games....And little miss priss is two! Can't wait to celebrate her on SAt. Love you!
