Happy Birthday to Me

September 7, 2008 at 7:53 pm (Memories, Musings...)

I turned 49 today.  My mom made me a plate of fudge.  Remember how in the last post I told you I hoped there is chocolate in heaven??  I’m not so sure today… my tummy hurts from too much fudge!! 

I thought I would take the time and scan some pictures of me through my almost five decades {{Gasp!!}}  I think my darling children will especially appreciate seeing these pictures of me!!!  I am looking forward the next 49 years!!

    Hey momma, I love the picture of you and Pappap. He looks so young (jerry-curl and all). Also, cousin Bethie is cute and you, as always, perfectly posed.

    I love you more than I can express.

    Wish we all aged so beautifully. You’re quite the looker. But tell me, why do parents insist on cutting their girls bangs way, way up high,nearly to the hairline? It’s not just a “back then” habit, either, unfortunately. Girls at church in 2008 are still chopped a good 2 inches above the brow. I did it to my girl. ONCE!

    I LOVE the pictures and the progression of hairstyles!! And I agree with AJ…your dad looks very young in that picture! And I also enjoyed your cousin Bethie too! 🙂 Can’t wait to see the pictures of you at 98 still stylin’ it up! Hope you enjoyed your birthday!

    I was never sure how much Amanda looked like you until I saw your senior picture. WOW…quite the resemblance. I knew you back then and personally I don’t think either of have changed too much through the years. Let’s pray we look young at 90.. You are still 6 years younger than me. I will be — in about 7 weeks….you do the math.
