Me, Growing Up

My Nana sent me my birth announcement a couple of years ago.
Aren't Grandparents great for keeping things!!

Here I am at I think 3 months old
I love the bonnet!
I love this dress!

My Auntie Sharon made this Brownie cake for me

My Auntie Sharon also made me this angel cake
I collect angels.
I don't know if it was this year or not, but my
one year my Aunt made a big doll cake
and then all the
girls at my party a little doll cake for themselves.

This is me at 30

We won't go any further than that!!
We'll just remember what I looked like at 30,
Okay?? Okay!!
Thank you everyone for all the Birthday wishes!!
I really appreciate it.
There's a thingy on the sidebar that will tell you the day of the week you were born.

I forgot to post the winners of this weeks giveaway.
Sorry about that!!

Happy Birthday!

My mom never did birth annoucements and I'm 23 so way to go to your parents for doing one (and your grandparents for keeping it!)...

Hope you had a great day and celebrated it with your big family!

Dianne said...

Thanks for sharing your photos-so cute and purdy!
I saw what you look like 'older' and you don't look that much different. 47 is the new 37, didn't you hear?
I also have a copy of my birthday announcement, but I like yours better.

I hope you have had a great day. I thought you already once today when I saw a lady riding a bicycle with a long skirt, she looked like the woman in the Wizard of Oz who was the witch. Oh, the girl didn't really look like a witch, but the clothes and the bike, yikes! Thanks for hosting the swap, i look forward to receiving my package from my swap partner.
I wish I could did up the picture of me sitting with my hands in my lap.
We almost look like we could be sisters - two sweet little girls looking so precious, thanks for sharing your pictures.

A big, big hug on your birthday from me to you. :)

Happy Happy Birthday Sherry!!! I hope your day was everything you wanted it to be and more!

Cathy said...

I'm a winner??!!! Woo-hoo! I can't wait for the mail to arrive next week. Everything you do is always so beautiful. By the way, Sophia is getting so many complements on the bag you made. You know, the one we bought as a birthday gift for someone else but she couldn't give up once she saw it? She carries it everywhere and everywhere someone complements her on it. Love you lots! Cathy
