A very happy, happy birthday wish for my sister, Roberta. We have been sharing life since Mom and Dad brought her home from the hospital that October day many, many years ago. We didn't have a birthday party every year, but Mother always baked a cake and we always celebrated with family.
On her 4th birthday,
holding up that birthday cake
baked with loving hands by our Mother.
Holding very proudly that
coveted baby doll.
Ooops! Tears on your birthday aren't good.
She had to share the doll with her little friend, Peggy.
(I'm the pouty one in plaid because it's not my birthday!)
Notice all the girls are wearing dresses for this simple neighborhood party.
Happy Birthday, Roberta!
All my love to you!
