And although I won't tell you how old she is turning, I will say that it is very hard to believe that she will be as old as my mom was when this picture was taken. My, how time flies.
Umm, do you think our clothes match the room here, or at least everything in the room except for the red Noah's Ark in the corner and the black and white cat (Stump) sitting on my sister's lap? Matchy-matchy much? But what can I say? We were in '80s pastel heaven floating on bubble curtain clouds. And yes, I'm pretty sure that's the one and only time I've ever seen my dad in a cardigan. Either it was a really beautiful day in the neighborhood or he just really loves my mom. I'll go with the latter.
Happy Birthday, Cole! I hope you get to do something fun today that does not involve wrangling your brood into an awkward family photo.
