When you're older.....

Just a quick HAPPY BIRTHDAY!

Today is Stephanie's birthday and she's a bit traumatized by being "almost 40" (never tell a woman's age, but she'll be that next year).

Happy Birthday to our mom, wife and head spaz of the household. I love you!

(I even picked out great shoes and a purse for her pressies)

But even on such an upbeat day, it seems sad thoughts can find us at anytime, even when we least expect it. Stephanie was stirring up her coffee. Me watching Scott play SSX on the PS3, Derry slugging along getting pwn'd by a Level 70 in World of Warcraft, and she say "my first birthday without a card from my Dad". Sort of caught us all off guard I believe.

Off to pick up the "custom ordered" cake for the day.

Happy Birthday, Sunshine.

We need a picture of you in your pressies!

The first one is indeed a tough one. I know Graham is sending you his love afterall.

You old thing.

Hey Steph,
Happy Birthday again. Did leave wishes earlier under your 'Chumbawumba' posting. Have a great Mothers Day tomorrow as well. Not sure if you have that in America but make sure the boys give you a totally relaxing weekend!! Tell them you deserve it - which you do!
With love,
Dawn.

y7Hi steph - didn't know if you'd want the world to know it was your birthday but David let the cat out of the bag.

Every 'first' is so difficult - it does get easier but you will never forget - I still miss my dad - your grandad - after all these years - he's been gone 21 years, and Nana still has a weep over her mum who died over 50 years ago!!
They make us who we are and it's right to remember them.
love and hugs
mum/nana

Wishing you a very special Birthday. I had no idea it was today... I'll have to send something but it will be a bit late. :)

Sending Smiles and Birthday Wishes, Angel Laura
