Happy, Happy Birthday to our "Girly Whirly"! aka "Little Miss"








Once upon a time... 
there were 5 lovely princesses...




...and of these lovely princesses...
was our very own darling daughter...
...Girly Whirly...
~~~~~~~~~
once again...as I looked for past birthday photos, I say to myself: "I really need to organize the bazillion photos that we have "safely" stored in the many Rubbermaid boxes, and albums, and envelopes, and shoeboxes, etc...


..but thankfully, I found these that I was able to put on a little clip.
~~~~~~~~
Without further ado...



I am so thankful that we have the wonderful photos, videos (and even some old cassette recordings)  of our three children and of our family and friends... photos, videos, recordings...all help to bring back memories of those days gone by! Sweet memories...

Blessings & Aloha!

(Also...stop by our other daughter Girly Twirly, aka theLuckiestMrs, for her first giveaway that ends at midnight tonight).  And I really will post some most recent drawings, awards, and requests in my next post). Thank you for stopping by and commenting!

Thank you for the well wishes for our daughter's birthday :o) I call our daughters similar sounding names on this blog (older daughter (www.theluckiestmrs.blogspot.com), I call Girly Twirly) and our younger daughter (Little Miss, I call Girly Whirly), so I thought I would mention it here :o) They are 3 and a half years apart, but get asked often if they are twins :o) And when I call them and they are together, I even have to ask who I am speaking to...cuz they sound alike! haha

...so, it is our younger daughter that celebrated her birthday on Weds ...and our older daughter, who is married and has a blog (www.theluckiestmrs.blogspot.com)

You are three beautiful ladies! What an honor for your younger daughter to have been a Kentucky Derby Princess! I'm sure that is a very special memory. Happy birthday to Girly Whirly, and merry Christmas to you!

Happy Birthday to your daughter!! Also, wish her a Happy Anniversary too :-)
Thank you for the compliment on the pillows. I'm sorry about your Mom. I can't imagine what that feels like. But, I can understand because my Mom lost my Grandma when I was young and I was also very close (and attached) to her and still to this day my Mom has a hard time without her. I miss my Grandmother terribly. I was always with her. My Grandmother was also very crafty. She did beaded flowers, knitting, etc.

I look forward to many more prjoects with my Mom and I can't wait to be closer to her when we eventually get back to NY.

I am going to become a follower of your blog too.

Happy New Year!
Alisha
