Birthday Bliss for Me!

46 years ago today this baby with the head of red hair was born

I was the first grand child born on both sides of my parents families


As a small child I was, of course, completely doted on!!


This was my first birthday....
My Mom made sure everything was perfect.


Just check out the table.
Matching china, table cloth and flowers.


Yum....I LIKE sweets!!


Check out my little baby shoes with
the bells on them, heehe!

Presents for me?? Yeay!!


Then I grew.....


And grew some more......


I had more birthdays....


Mom set more perfect tables.....

Back then, we would wear our perfect party dresses...


And our Mom's MADE perfect cakes!!


Can we eat yet??


By 1970 the fancy parties were fading out.
I was 7 that year.
I had wanted that doll stroller SOOoooo bad!

~Thank you for sharing my beginning~
I turn 46 today
The next 40+ years will be even better!

Happy Birthday Lily Sue! Hope you have lots of fun!

You were and still are so cute! How great that you have so many birthday pictures! Funny how the party table got smaller. Moms change just like we do, eh? I have my first birthday pic and that's all. (I had little shoes with bells, too!)
