Ginger

14 years ago today at 1:00am exactly……(Warning Picture Heavy)

…..the most beautiful little (not really at almost 23″ long) girl took her first breath. We didn’t know she was going to be a girl. Really……we honestly thought she would be a he. Had she been a boy, she would have been a “Charlie” instead of a “Colleen”.

For your enjoyment…..a few birthday pictures from dinner.

She was having fun picking on her dad…..a customer decided to join in on the fun which the kids thought was a hoot. He was there with his family having dinner also. They even sang to Colleen.

What a group…..I am the short one in the middle. My daughter is such a beautiful young lady. I am so proud of her. Charlie is in the orange. He just turned 12. Robbie is in the brown. He was 10 in May. They are taking after their father …..If I were only 5″ taller….:-)

My husband has two faces when you take his picture…one sudo serious and the other…a goof ball!!

I love my family so much and am so proud of them. Tomorrow I will have Colleen’s birthday story written. Her story is a little more involved. She is such a blessing and has dedicated her life to the Lord. She wants her life and all that she does to honor God…..what more could a mother ask….

Happy 14th Birthday Sweetie…..I love you!!!

  3. Thank you both for saying I am beautiful…I would have guessed that you would have noticed the short hair. I chopped it all off a month ago. It has all ready grown past my ears which is where it was cut to….LOL..:-) We did have fun!! Randy and I both dislike Old Country Buffet…the food is so greasy it make me have lots of stomach issues. She loves the mac’n cheese there….We tried bribing her with other more expensive restaurants…..alas..she was hoping to see the OCB bummble bee….:-)

    Ginger, I can really tell that you have lost a lot of weight. You look marvelous!

    Colleen said, “thank you!” Thank you for the compliment. The funny thing is that I don’t see it….I can only tell by the looseness of my skirt.

  8. Happy Birthday Colleen! (I love your name, BTW)

    Ginger I love the pic of you with your glasses on your forehead pinching the boys’ cheeks!

    Ya’ll obviously had a good time. 😀

    🙂 That is one of my favs. I need the glasses unless it is to see something close up. I just always push them up now. Don’t say it!! I know my time is coming….LOL

  9. Looks like you all had a great night.
    I can’t wait to read your birthday story about her.

    Happy birthday Colleen. (You share a birthday with my baby sister, she turned 22.) I know a lot of fabulous women born on the same day! You are a beautiful young woman.

    Happy Birthday to your baby sister from the other side of the ocean…..!!!G and C
