you say it's your birthday

My darling baby sister rolled all sevens when she was born ~ 7/7/77. I imagine she didn't feel all that lucky growing up with a perfectionist know-it-all sister who had spent nearly nine years as an only child, but she makes one glorious aunt to my kids so something must have gone well.

Focus on that adorable girl in the pink dress and stop staring at my weirdly plump hair and the tree sticking out of my head.

Ah, sweetness & light, where have ye gone?

Another unfortunate encounter with the maniac big sister who thought dressing up a 7 year old as Cyndi Lauper was a great idea. (Even more unfortunate? I actually wore all of those clothing items at some point)

Much better, all grown up.

Love you, little sis!

Happy birthday sis.

You have been a fabulous sister to me!! I am very lucky! And thank you for the tribute blog today :)

Though that light & sweet picture, if you remember correctly as soon as grandma & I got back from Mt. V to pick them up, I threw them away, mom was upset and confused I would do that. I only look sweet and innocent!

love you!!!

Happy Birthday.

I hope your parents didn't pay the photographer who was so inept as not to check that something from the background was growing out of your head--that's Photography 101!

Happy Birthday to your little sister!

And I'm still in shock over that sparkling tub of yours. Yes, yes, you said it had only beeen used once at the time of the photo. Yeah. Right. said...

COOL birthday! That must get a lot of comments when she fills out forms and such.

Happy birthday to your sis!

Happy Birthday, Bad Sis! Party down. (And I do have to think that that's just about the luckiest day ever to be born. You must do well in Vegas.)

What a nice tribute!

Happy birthday to your sis!

7/7 is also my very good friend's birthday.

Lots of great women born on this day!!

P.S. Apparently you got that tree removed from your head, either that or you're a good photo-shopper.
