How I spend April 14th in the past:
As a two year old in 1956
Age three in 1957-my dad's parent gave me the bunnies!
Age four in 1958
It was the beginning year of the tradition of having little wooden angel candle holders on the cake.
(Still wearing that same hand-me-down dress! Amazing isn't it?*)
I loved that dress with lavender and turquoise flowers and the bell sleeves made from a sheer fabric.
Age 11: Mom was taking a cake decorating class.
Notice the host of angels on the cake and my blue point Siamese cat Winnie looking on.
Age 14. Mom's cake artistry shows with the birthflower sweet peas decorating this cake.
Fifteen. I loved that knit dress and kept wearing it through college!
Sweet Sixteen...and only one candle for some reason.
My first birthday picture was a printed photo that I've posted before.
Aren't you glad I don't have FIFTY SIX pictures to blog share today?
(*I had girl cousins who were dressed identically by my aunt. Bonnie and Chris were two years apart in age, I was the only girl cousin younger than they were so I would get TWO of each of their dressy dresses. The dresses were usually quite beautiful, but it was quite odd to be wearing a "re-run" wardrobe every two years!)
