Congratulations, Erika!

We look forward to having another nurse in the family! Our niece Erika will be joining my sister-in-law Ann, my sister-in-law Eileen, and my niece Rachel, all nurses! Erika had her pinning ceremony last night.

Beautiful Erika!

  3. Indeed congratulations are in order! There can ever be too many nurses! Cathy, RN

  4. Congratulations Erika!
    Eileen, your new header makes me think of you and your sisters, the three of you as young girls!

  5. Oh how wonderful for Erika! I have always wanted to be a nurse but the children came and now I just nurse for free!!! Congratulations Erika, good for you! Love Di


    Wonderful accomplishment. Congratulations to Erika!! Nurses are SO needed. Did I ever mention my Sis is a nurse? Yup, R N.

    Great pictures to capture the proud celebration.

    Love Gail

  7. She's got those stunning eyes that seem to run in your family! It's been a long while since I've actually seen a nurse in a hat, and wearing white. I like it! I wonder if that is a NY thing. I wish we would go back to that here...she looks so professional.

  8. How wonderful! Congratulations Erika! What a beautiful girl she is. She looks so professional in her nursing outfit and hat. I know she has worked very hard and I know how proud all of you are of her. Our world certainly needs nurses, and besides, I don't think you can have to many nurses in the family :>)

  9. Hi Eileen....
    I am SO proud of her...and happy to see the white uniform with the cap and stripe...and I do wish our nurses here would wear them.
    What an accomplishment! Hats off to her!!! :))
    She will be a wonderful nurse. She has a lovely smile, and I'm quite sure her heart is just as lovely. Congratulations to Erika (what a pretty name!)

  10. Wow, what a fabulous smile that gal has!

  11. Your neice is truly beautiful with a wonderful smile. It must run in your family.

    Have a very Happy Birthday today.

    Loved looking through your photos.

  12. Congratulations to your beautiful niece, dear Eileen!!! I think anyone would simply love to be in her care...her smile conveys such warmth!!! Wonderful photos!!!

    AND HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY (...well, I think that gives you the idea...)
