It’s My Birthday

Tomorrow is my birthday. I will turn 46 years old. I have many things to be thankful for. I'm especially thankful for my husband and kids who love me very much.

I thought it would be fun to post some pictures of me through the years. I’ve taken them from some scrap booking I’ve done (which explains some of the backgrounds). It helps while taking a walk down memory lane, if you can hear Kenny Rogers sing, "Through the Years." I'm sorry, now you're going have that stuck in your heads. So you don't have to "pretend," I've added the song.

The picture of above is me at nine months. Do the words “Buddha Baby” come to mind?

Below are some of shots of me when I was five years old. I went on a cruise with my parents. It’s a shame I was so shy. Don’t you just dig that outfit, that hat and that purse? It was back then that we found out that I get sea sick, but I still had a great time on the cruise. Maybe one day I’ll blog about that trip.

What do you do with a kid who twirls around the house whenever she hears music? Why put her in ballet school.
Don’t you just love school pictures? I believe I was about ten here.
Last but not least, is this shot Tom took me while we spent a day in the city. I was eighteen. Once a ham always a ham.
I hope you all enjoy the rest of your week.
