December 4th

Today has been a big day in our family for many years.  My dear dad was born on a cold December 4th in 1913 in Idaho.  And 48 years later on December 4, 1961 my daughter Julie was born on a cold snowy day here in Washington.  For many years they even celebrated their birthday with my dad's mom (grandma Smith to me and "great great" to Julie) as her birthday was December 11th.  Both my grandma and my dad worked for the Milwaukee Railroad and Julie loved horses...so there were some birthday cakes with a little train winding thru a pasture of horses on the top. Afer grandma retired she lived on the same property as my folks, so when Julie was at their house she was surrounded by family. Anyway, dad is celebrating his 92nd birthday in Heaven and Julie is celbrating her 44th birthday with her family.   HAPPY BIRTHDAY !!!!

Oh, I so love looking at old family photographs, especially those from one hundred years ago!

A happy belated birthday to your daughter Julie and your father in heaven.  I still celebrate both my parents birthdays, even though they are gone.
