65th Birthday Party for Harabudgi, November 2010

My family has 3 birthdays this week. My baby sister, Sarah, and Jason both had a birthday on 4/14. Today is the birthday of my big sister, Ellen. To celebrate, here are photos from birthdays past spanning 4 generations.

    I really love your posts with generations of pictures.
    I wonder what they are all looking at on the ceiling in the first picture…

      I wonder too – maybe a balloon? I like doing the generations of pictures posts, so am going to try to do one every week or so. A few years ago, I scanned some picture albums for my dad. This gave me a huge archive of family photos to draw upon.

        That is so great! I wish we had a scanner. I have lots of childhood pictures, some great ones of my dad, that I would love to get on the computer. Perhaps I will ask Santa for a scanner this Christmas. šŸ™‚

    I love it when you do these generational pictures! Although your Dad is not much older than I am – boy does THAT make me feel old. Of course, I also can’t believe I have a 30 year old daughter either.

    • Beth says:

      Thanks, Nancy. Still owe you a post… How do you keep up with writing 2 blogs?

      • dogear6 says:

        I’m not right now. I’m not keeping up with much of anything except work. Remember though I’m an empty nester – it makes a huge difference. Unfortunately I don’t have the energy I used to either!

        Don’t worry about the post. I’ll do something later and reference your blog instead. Enjoy your little ones instead and now the nicer weather coming.

    I love the group picture of Ellen’s Bday. You all are so young. Too Cute.

      When I see our younger selves, I think about how much has happened and whether we would have predicted where each of us is today.
