So last Friday was my Birthday, So I decided to dedicate this Friday to a little "birthday flashback" and do a little remenising of past Birthdays. It was really challenging to locate all these pictures! But I found as many as I could, and it turned out to be quite the collection, so hold on! This could take a while!
Here we are... this is my 5 year old birthday! I am the only one NOT looking at the camera, but looking like I am having a super fun time! (I'm sure Anne, -my sister in the front- is going to love this picture!)
7 years old- I remember I got this little birthstone ring that I thought was the finest gift a girl could have! Just look at Chely with her red Kool-aid Stach eye-ing it!
Ok, So you cant see in this picture, But that great big smile on my face is'nt because of my super cool hair and oufit!, it is because I had received my very first OWN bike! It was a purple bannana seat bike with Unicorns and rainbows! ahhh, I loved that Bike! and dont be laughin' at the teeth! That is a whole other blog in itself!
Jump forward now to 1998. This is Me, Kellie and Nicole. this is the birthday before I got married, while me Nic, and kellie were all roomates....good times.
This is in 2001, at a little Birthday get-together with Ben & Ladonna and Matt & Alissa Ward, while we were out at BYU Hawaii, Alissa had made me a heavenly cheescake! (dont ask me what Matt was doing in this picture? I wouldnt expect any less!)
These next two picture really make me laugh, The First one is 2002, and the next one is 2003. And, If you havent allready noticed, I am wearing the SAME shirt (how embarassing!) I think the reason it is most embarassing is... in the first picture I am 7 Months pregnant! and in the second one, Milo is 10 months old! Lets just say, I had a little bit of a hard time losing that "baby weight". The other thing that makes me chuckle when I look at the second one is Russ' face, it looks like he is trying to help me blow out the candles! too funny.
This is the last, and I think this is my Most favorite! This was just last year, and so much was going on, I was going through in-vitro and had just had the Embryo's transffered that day! (that is why I am lying in bed and looking a little groggy) it's kind of hard to tell, but that little picture that Milo is holding is the picture of the two little embryos that they put back in that day. and Just two weeks later I received one of the best presents ever...It worked! Another favorite in this picture is The Cake! Milo had Totally decorated it all by himself! it had no frosting, little pile's of sprinkles sparatically placed on top, a heart-shaped mint pattie in the middle, and two random candles (that I think came out of our 72 hour kits :)) he was so proud!
Well I hope I have many more spectacular Birthdays to come! yah me!
