I printed out all the comments, cut them apart, and laid them out on my floor and picked.....
My sympathies to you for the loss of your aunt. Other than that, hope you have a great year.My sister was born one day before my 3rd birthday. We would have birthday parties together. 3 of my best girlfriends also had sisters the same age as my sister and we would get together and have doll parties. In fact, I think we may have a couple of photos somewhere of us with our dollies. Now that my sister lives far away, we really miss celebrating our birthdays together. I hope we can get together some year soon and have another birthday party!Thanks for the chance to win the wonderful blog candy!January 27, 2009 6:21 AM

Here's one of my favorite birthday memories...
I was lucky enough to be born on my Grandma Harriet's birthday - and she was a twin. Growing up, we would get together and share a birthday cake with all of our names on it. I always thought it was so special to share my birthday with grandma and her sister Helen.
When my grandma died several years ago, my Great-Aunt Helen would always send me a birthday card and sometimes include a photo of my grandma in it with her well wishes. I'm sorry to say that my Great-Aunt Helen died just a few days ago on Friday, January 23 - just a day before our birthday. She lived a wonderfully active life and will be greatly missed.
Now, it's your turn - leave me a note about a birthday memory of yours. I'd love to hear it!
