Cute & Happy

BEFORE JANUARY 27, 1994:

Allison, 8, and Eric, 3.

Cute and happy.

AFTER JANUARY 27, 1994

Allison, 8, and Eric, now 4.

See a difference? Yeah, neither do I. But it's there...

(But still cute and happy.)

AND NOW:


Allison, 20, Mumzie, and Eric, 16.
(Father's taking the picture. He says, "Hi.")

Still cute, still happy.

Just taller. And wiser.

I used to think my brother was a cutie. :-)

Thanks for the best wishes (from today's post, and yesterday's, and the day before that....).

I haven't figured out what I'm going to do! But I'm sure I'll think of something.

Jamie-

If you need any ideas, I'm sure I could come up with something... I've received jewelry, make-up, dolls, cards, gift certficates, knitting needles and yarn, and for my first anniversary, I got my ears pierced. Not sure if those apply to your little one... Maybe you could buy her a Barbie or some toy she's really really been wanting.
