It's my Birthday!!!

On this day 58 years ago I came into the world.




I grew up with two older brothers and 9 years later a baby sister.

I remember this stroller.
Now if someone would just push me.

What a happy girl I am.


Notice the bangs.
What a dress too,
black and white.


Still bangs,
plaid dress too.



No more bangs.
And no more do I look like this picture either.



And if they use this picture for my obituary . . . I will personally come back and haunt them!

And now announcing a give away.
WHY?
Because it's my birthday and it's better to give than to receive,
and
because I can.




I will give away a set of Wade seasons collectibles.


Just leave me birthday wishes.

Winner will be announced February 10
because that's plenty of time for me
to get lots of birthday wishes!

Happy Birthday...and many more!

Hair is one of the best parts of growing up. It reminds us it's o.k. to laugh at ourselves. :D

My mom collects Wades...Her birthday is on the 11th of February. This would be the best birthday gift I could give her. It's pretty cool you are doing a giveaway on your birthday! Thanks!

Hope your birthday was great. I loved that stroller. We had one when I was small. My mom would take us to the store every day. I could stand on the back while my brother rode. (we were only 19 months apart) As for all the pictures over time, I like the way you are right now.

Mel said...

Zoey said...

Happy Birthday, Patti! I was gone over the weekend, so I came her to wish you a belated HB, not to get in the giveaway.

Geez, I still have bangs....I kind of like them. But I did get rid of them in high school, just like you did. Your pics made me think of mine at that age.
