Happy Birthday Carrie.

I can't believe it's been 24 years since the birth of the baby in my family.   My baby girl, Carrie.  And I will let you know, she has lived up to being in baby of our family in every sense of the word.   We had a little party at our house to celebrate.  Her menu request was cheese tortellini with roasted red pepper sauce, cheese broccoli and dinner rolls.  She's not much for cake so this year she requested peanut butter pie.  This is the first birthday since she was 16 that she didn't request pumpkin pie.  That's what happens when your birthday usually falls on Thanksgiving weekend if not Thanksgiving day.  24 years ago today I went into labor cooking Thanksgiving dinner and I've been thankful for her ever since.

                                                  Happy Birthday Baby Girl

Carrie and her boyfriend, Joel. 
She had help opening most of her presents.
Happy 24th Birthday.   I hope your wish comes true.

Love,  Mom


  1. Dear Deborah,

    Wonderful job.

    I'm having my baby girl's birthday this week.

    Just got back from Florida recently and I'm
    a little behind.

    Have a beautiful day!

  2. Yummy....peanut butter pie. She sounds like me. Forget cake and bring on the brownies.
