Jesse came into the world in the early morning hours of June 4th, 1982, in Vernon, TX. She was round and pink with dark hair – a beautiful baby girl. We had planned on naming her Amanda, but the name just did not fit. I wanted to call her Jesse, but not Jessica, after my grandfather and brother. So we decided to call her Jesse Marie. She has been an easy keeper from day one. She has always been a bit independent and adventurous. Sometimes I felt like we were tugging on the reins trying to control a free spirit - at least until we knew she would do fine. She has grown into a beautiful woman both inside and out. I know the desires of her heart, and they are good. This photo was taken at South Padre Island when Jesse was one year old. Bo, whose birthday is next week, was four. Toby is 26 in this photo – the age Jesse is today. You can wish her a happy birthday here.
