Sunrise Sunset

Please forgive me if my recent posts have been heavy on the family stuff. I have just one more to finish the week. I’m guessing you’ll let me off the hook because today is my daughter’s birthday! 🙂


The song, “Sunrise Sunset”, from “Fiddler on the Roof” has the kind of lyrics that tug at the ole heartstrings of a parent. That tune was playing in my head as I looked at photos of her earliest celebrations. I don’t think she’ll mind if I mention she’s “thirty-something” today. 😉

Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?
I don’t remember growing older
When did they?

2nd birthday


When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he grow to be so tall?
Wasn’t it yesterday
When they were small?

3rd birthday


(Gosh, do those lyrics ever ring true!!!)

5th birthday


And all grown up


partyaHappy Birthday Sweetheart!

We love you a million trillion!

  1. Happy Birthday!!! Oh such wonderful photos, my baby is only 14 months and I look back at photos now and then – wow she has grown so much! Your daughter looks like she had some wonderful parties and beautiful moments I am sure she treasures just as much as you.

  2. I’m joining Carol! I want to be an “Auntie” too! Happy Birthday to your beautiful daughter, Sweetie! What a touching post, and I loved all those cute party themes! It’s just like you to make it all so special! She was such a little doll! My son’s birthday was last Friday. They’re just a week apart!

  3. Wow, your daughter really is gorgeous! Must run in the family. And she’s about my age, though my own mom says I’m not allowed to be 30 yet, and have to wait at least another ten birthdays to change my cake.;) So happy birthday to her, and congratulations to you both!
