and even though (in this picture) it looks like you are praying for mercy...you will find NONE here!!! :) here is a WONDERFUL walk down memory lane...in honor of your special day...
is that a pink and purple sweater? who would have guessed that a blonde haired blankenau girl would wear such a thing? ;)
ohhhhh...the cheesy grin has an origin! could it have all started with this cute school age blonde in this VERY stylish shirt?
ohhhhh and look at those legs!! you couldn't have been more than twelve...and they are already at LEAST a 34 inseam!!
and most importantly....look kids your mom is having a lot of fun!! (don't look kids she isn't wearing a seat belt, a helmet, or any protective gear WHAT-SO-EVER....and yet she lived to tell about it!!)
so i hope you enjoyed this little trip down memory lane....happy, happy birthday to the crazy, catholic, woman i admire, yankee, stunning, blonde goddess, six foot, cousin cathy!!!! :)
