Today in Birthdays!

Happy Birthday, Daddy! This is the only picture I can find that has almost all my dad's immediate family. The only person missing is my dad's oldest sister, Pam-Pam. I'm assuming that she was taking the picture; too bad the guy in the plaid shirt and jacket didn't take the picture (that was one of the brothers-in-law). My dad is the youngest of 6, so the little kids are his oldest niece and nephews. There was 21 years difference between Pam-Pam and my dad. Since I'm an only child, my parents used to tease me that they were going to give me a brother or sister when I turned 21. Can you imagine?!

These next two pictures are some of my favorites. That's me with Daddy on his tractor on the left, and that's JR with him on the four-wheeler. I have these two pictures side-by-side on my refrigerator, and we had lived in China for a year before our Ayi figured out that one of them was me. She thought both pictures were of JR!

Daddy would be fine with me telling how old he is, but since my mom and I don't tell our age, we wouldn't want anybody trying to figure out how old we are from how old he is! Happy Birthday, Daddy! I love you!

Happy 30th Birthday, Kristi! My cousin Kristi (who is also Caleb's mom) turns 30 today. I love this picture of her because this is how I remember her looking when we were growing up...Humm, that's strange, since I'm only 25 I wonder how I can remember what she looked like when she was little? ;-) Kristi and I have a running joke about birthdays because our immediate families all have the same birthdays. Kristi and my dad have the same birthday. Her youngest son, Cole, and I have the same birthday. Her mom's (my cousin Lu) birthday is one day after mine, and Kyle and Reed were born one day after Caleb's birthday. Needless to say, we have lots of festivities going on at the same time.

That's a nice tribute to John for his birthday. The pictures are cute. I see Onie hiding behind Daddy. She was such a pill. Mom
