: (

So – I wanted to put a picture on my facebook profile of me and my kids (all of them) on my birthday and I unfortunately came to the realization that no such picture exists because it never happened!  Lauren was born in 2005, 6 weeks after my birthday and in 2006 Lauren, Nathan and I were in New York and Julia and Luke were home in Colorado.  In 2007 Nathan had been dead for 2 months.

I’m not going to let this ruin my birthday today but it was a downer to discover this.

I’ll throw some picture out here anyway.  Interesting because it looks like it was hot last year too.  It is supposed to be record-setting hot today.  Also, I made my own cake last year and will again today… not because I have to, because I want to!

  1. I don't know. I think you were pretty hot in all these pictures. ;)Happy b-day.

  2. What? Oh, too bad. At least you have pics of all three on other special days. : )I love seeing how you change in the pics you post in such series–in the first one you were such a babe (in both senses. ; ) and in 2004 you look tired–but yet your smile is all the more radiant for that. In 2009 you are holding your children closer than in any of the other pics–maybe an unconscious way of hugging to you how precious your kids are, of hugging Nathan in your heart while you are hugging the girls in your lap. Not trying to be overly sentimental, just trying to describe what I see in the pics. Thanks for posting them. And happy birthday!

  3. That is sad. Best wishes on your birthday!
