It's my party......

This is the other present I got for my 8th birthday. Does it seem like I'm stuck at 8??? :) My Uncle Stuart and my sister Debbie are with me in this picture. I always loved staying at their house. Doesn't that seem like a huge bicycle?? My uncle was obviously holding the bike so I could sit on it for the picture.

Oh, and don't you love the haircuts???

My sweet husband turned over this morning and said "happy birthday".....big deal because he doesn't always remember until I thoughtfully remind him. As he was leaving for work, I teasingly asked where was my card? He looked blank for a moment and then the office. I laughed and said, you mean the store?

He doesn't really think cards are all that....but tonight he's taking me to a wonderful restaurant in Destin! That will be fun and a great birthday present. He's really the best present anyway.....most of the time :) .

I'm very thankful for the last year of my life and am looking forward to this coming year. Psalm 139:16 says this .......Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there were none of them. Thanks be to God for each and every day of life.

I had the SAME haircut back in the day - - - only no curl on my head unless we slept on bobby pins or something.

I forgot to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY last time - - - - sorry!

I was just so SURPRISED to see my "face" looking out of YOUR picture!!!!

Yes, you do have stunningly beautiful sisters - and yourself as well! Happy birthday!

I had to really chuckle at the picture - I was not happy when my youngest brother was born - we had two girls and two boys and I didn't want the boys to win. But of course I adored him after he was here - and I really helped raise him.
