Happy BD, baby!

Yep, my 'baby' turns 50 today!  She has always had a great smile and still does to this day!!!

So hard to believe!!!  It honestly seems like yesterday...I remember so well heading off to the hospital..actually, I thought I was the 1st woman to ever have a baby!  They wanted me to get out of the wheelchair and get on the scale!  I told them "But, I'm having a baby!"...they told me "YEP, you and about 10 other women but we still need to weigh you!".  Anyway, I did make it through the delivery just fine...8lb 8oz of baby!!  And on her father's birthday to boot!  So today is always a rough day for Dawn as her father passed away in 2000.

She certainly loved her baby brother and they are as close today as ever.  I'm so glad they have each other!

One summer Dawn decided each morning she would get up early and work the horses with me.  I was showing and raising horses at the time and had to exercise the show horses and of course do barn chores before I left for work.

It was fun to have Dawn at the barn with me and she did a nice job showing one of our horses that summer.

This was one of Dawn's graduation pictures from '84.

And this is my beautiful daughter and her wonderful hubby, Jeff.  Love that girl..enjoy your day!!!


  1. Beautiful! Happy Birthday to your lovely daughter. Sadly, nothing makes us feel our age as quickly as celebrating our kids birthdays, lol.
