Happy Birthday Christina!

Christina - The Birthday Girl

I love this letter Christina wrote me when she was little. I keep it in a frame and it is hanging in our hall. If you can't read little kid writing, I'll decipher it for you. It says: To Mom, I love you and this is why I am sending you this to you tonight. Love, Christina Don't you just love this? I will keep and treasure this forever.

This my sweetie and I and Christina on the day she was christened. Oh my, we look so young!
This is classic Christina! If you look really good, you can see she has a black eye! She was always in a hurry and ran into a wall playing with her brother Jimmy.
And I love this picture because it shows her spirit. Christina has always had an adventurous spirit.

Happy Birthday Christina! Our baby is 26 years old today. That's hard to believe. We are so proud of you and all of your hard work. We believe in you and are here for you! Happy Birthday Christina! (I know I got a little carried away with the pictures but couldn't decide which ones to post).

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! I love the little letter but I have to admit: I'm glad you deciphered it for me.

The black eye is classic! I think pictures of kids with cuts on the noses or chopped up bangs are hilarious (well, you know what I mean.) When they look back at those pictures they'll understand why their kids are the way they are!

Ah, your baby was so cute even with a black eye & is so pretty now. Don't they grow up too fast!

Hugs, DebraK

And how was your trip to the zoo? I love the black eye!! Sweet little girls with a black eye are somehow more endearing than if they had pig tales. Blessings... Polly

Thanks for the birthday wishes! I love you!

Those pictures are hilarious! Embarassing, but funny! And just for the record ~ I might have been playing but, Jimmy definantly wasn't!

Thanks for everything over the years! I don't know what I'd do without you!

I love you so much!
