say you wanna dance

I will always see that cute, funny, and clever little kid
peeking out from inside the lovely, witty and intelligent woman that you have become.

You may no longer be a teenager today, but that doesn't mean you can't party like a four-year old.

Happy Birthday, Resident Offspring!

Aw, I love that last one especially. Happy Birthday, RO! Hope your day is filled with goodness and some cake too!

S.M. Elliott said...

So cute! Happy birthday!

Barbara Bruederlin said...

Oh there will be cake, trust me on that, Al.
I love that last photo too, and that expression is one that is very familiar to me.

Ain't she adorable, SME?

Jas B said...

Awww such cute pictures. I still remember her as the little kid I met 8-9 years ago! God bless her.

L said...

Aww! Happy birthday to her!

Sean Wraight said...

What a lovely post my friend! The pictures are absolutely wonderful. The surroundings even look vaguely familiar.

Happy Birthday to the young Miss E. And hoping her summer is a fantastic one!

What a lovely lady she is, made up of the best of two beautiful parents. Happy birthday to your darling girl. :)

The happiest of birthdays to the RO (OFKAR?)! And a lovely post.Heck, maybe I'll even get to meet her one day when I show up to take over Canada :)

Barbara Bruederlin said...

It's hard to believe all those years have passed, isn't it, Jas?

It was a good day, Leslie!

The pictures were indeed taken in your home town, Sean. The birthday was tops and the summer promises to be just as good.

She really has raised the family bar, Phlegmmy, and we are very proud of her.

Hurry up and get here so you can take over this country, BAP! We need a new leader.

Smashing photos! What attitude. For all she takes after you, she is all her own isn't she! Happy birthday E!

I am getting all emotional while reading this! My daughter is 4 years-old (and a force to be reckoned with at that!) and though I am in no hurry to speed up this marvelous stage I do sincerely look forward to seeing her develop into a vibrant and self-actualized adult just like you have with your RO.

You have every reason to be proud my friend!

We were just commenting that it was her birthday yesterday! Those pictures are absolutely adorable - she was always such a cute kid. Give her a huge hug from us.

Barbara Bruederlin said...

She is absolutely her own woman, Leazwell!

Awww that is so sweet, Matthew! I can certainly appreciate not wanting to rush through any stages, but I know you are going to love all the stages of your little force of nature.

Hugs are being dispensed as we speak, Kathy. But whatever happened to those four-year-olds?


So sorry I missed wishing you Terrific Tidings on Turning Twenty on the appropriate day. :(

Hope you had a wonderful day EO! Hope to see you whilst you are home!


hmmm Looks like I'm not alone in loving that last pic. That should be framed and hung!

That one does capture her pretty suitably, doesn't it, UB?
