Happy Birthday Jennifer 1978

Our youngest daughter celebrated her third birthday in 1978.

What a great smile!  She had a circus train on her cake that year.  We celebrated at my parents home on the lake.  Far Guy was gone on deployment.

Here is the scene in the kitchen a few minutes later.

Evelyn (Far Guy’s Mom) Jennifer, Madeline (My Mother), Trica and the gal with the dark hair must be my sister Julie.

When the girls had birthdays we always tried to have a dinner, cake and ice cream and  invite their grandparents to attend. Dinner was the birthday persons favorite food and the cake their favorite flavor. They usually had a neighborhood/friend party one day after school, until they entered those teen years then they usually had a slumber party with a friend or two. 

The years go by so fast…it seems like only yesterday that she was just a little girl.  Now she is all grown up and a Mother herself..of teenagers!

Happy Birthday Jen!

  1. Happy Birthday to your daughter- she is just a few years older than my daughter, and I recognize the clothing styles. I miss those years. I used to love to shop for her- so many cute clothes and so little money! Ah, those were the days.

  3. Your own kids aren't supposed to get older, are they? When I think of my girls and how I looked at my mom at their age, it's kind of creepy. Life goes on!

  9. Jen is the same age as my oldest son. I guess I have not been paying attention the past couple of years. It was fun to have those traditions for the kids. I remember a big bird cake somewhere in the early years for our Andy. They are cute photos.
