Happy Birthday Trica!

 Our oldest daughter is 49 today...how can she be that old?  Time passes...we all get older.


A long time friend sent us this photo.  It was taken of Trica and her Dad in the summer of 1972 in Janesville Minnesota.   I always made sure she wore a hat...Mothers don't do that anymore.  The blanket she has is one that was made by her Great Grandma Henderson...corduroy of different colors ( A Crazy Quilt) on one side and an animal print on the other.   Far Guy had lots of hair back then. 

Hold onto your good memories.   Live in the present and make the best of each day.  Sending our daughter birthday blessings all wrapped in love.  Happy Birthday Trica!

  1. Children seem to have a way of growing up on us don't they? Both of my boys are in their 40's now and that make them old and not me. Hah ha. What a great photo from the past.

  2. Babies not wearing hats or socks these days...one of my pet peaves. Though I must admit I think the younger generation hasn't eaten enough dirt as kids and that's why they get sick/have behavioral problems/whine too much...wink wink.

  10. A very Happy Birthday to Trica! I hope she has a wonderful day. That picture is precious. I agree with you on hats for babies. It also bothers me when I see young babies with bare feet! I hope you both enjoy your Sunday.

  11. Happy Birthday Tricia! I hope it's a wonderful birthday. Our oldest is 41! I don't know how that happens either. It goes by so quickly. I'm trying to spend more time living in the moment and not wishing time away, but I AM missing Dennis and wish it were time for him to make the move too.
    Blessings and hugs,
    Betsy
