* Happy Birthday to us *

Christmas, birthdays, and a new year all rolled up into one.

It was 22 years ago yesterday that our beautiful daughter was born. She was quite the birthday present for me!
And I was about 22 at the time.
Hahaha ... OK, I wasn't.

I'm just happy she didn't arrive on Dec. 25. That must be a tough day to have a birthday.

And today would have been my father's 100th birthday, so I, his only child, was his birthday present!
He was an "older dad," and when I was little some of my friends thought he was my grandfather.

Here's Allegra on her birthday modeling a Turbie Twist my mother got for her. It was a good gift, since she never quite got the hang of putting her wet hair in a towel.

Ralph devoted a post to us. Just click on his name to read.

Happy almost New Year to all.

My sister Tina gave birth to her daughter on her birthday, too. She is still thrilled to share her birthday! Happy Birthdays, Patti and Allegra!

Big hugs :]

I'm so glad you and Allegra had a great birthday! Of course you were only 22. :))

All the best in 2011, Patti!

So sharing birthdays seems to run in your family, eh? I wonder if that means that Allegra will give you a grandchild on your collective birthdays also? That would be totally cool!

I absolutely love Allegra's smile in that picture! Considering I never mastered the whole turban-hair thing, I'd be smiling with one of those new-fangled gizmos also!

Happy belated birthday to you both!

That is so cool that you share the same birthday! A very happy belated birthday to you both! That cake sure does look tasty. I'm sure it didn't last long!
