A B C...

This post signifies the end of Ms. Matlock's First Alphabe-Thursday extravaganza!  A new Alphab-Thursday will start again after the colors of the Rainbow- ROY G. BIV.

This last "assignment" can be done from past Alphabe-Thursday posts or what she calls Alphabet Soup...your choice...

So... I thought I would have a go at trying to include each of the alphabets :o)

...what about a sentence with each letter represented?

My post is in celebration of the most recent birthdays of our daughter - Girly~Twirly (aka theluckiestmrs.) who celebrated her birthday this past July 20th...
& my dad's birthday, which was on July 18th.

In the past, we've had a few fun visits up at my dad's place, where we were able to celebrate both birthdays together.

Girly~Twirly...I year old
First Bday...New Mexico

My dad...1 year old...I think.
Milwaukee, Wisconsin

This slideshow is of some photos of my dad when he was little.

This slideshow is of some early birthday's of Girly~Twirly's.

The song is an original written, played and sung by our son, "Heartbreaker".
Please go to this post to hear a few more of his songs...

I am joining in with:



Blessings & Aloha!

Here are a few drawings ordered to commemorate past births.

A is for Alphabet blocks

B is for Basketball Mickey

C is for a (Precious Moments) Clown

D is for Dora the Explorer

E is for Eeyore

ok...ok..I'll stop...but just one more...

w is for Winnie the Pooh!
