A girl and her guys/gal

My girl child is turning twenty today.  How did that happen?  My first child isn't a teenager anymore.

But she still dances.



Which I'm happy about.


She's such an amazing, intelligent, caring, mature young lady.  Her guys and gal can attest to that.



Her guy.


Her pesky brother.


Ok, so since this picture's been taken, the boy child's hair has gotten shorter and the boy friend's hair has gotten longer.  But you get the idea.

And here is the girl child with her new gal.


How cute is that?


The girl child has fallen hard for Mia.  Of course.  She is a sucker for a cute face. :D


The only problem is that the boy friend doesn't like cats.  He's allergic to them.  And just doesn't like them.

So this


And this


don't mix.  But the girl child has enough love for both anyway.


Happy birthday, my bunny.  I love you.

Great photos Margaret. Happy Birthday to your lovely girl. Just think, on this day, 20 years ago, you gave life to a tiny little baby girl and today she is all grown up and independant. Makes one wipe a tear away.

Happy Birthday Girl Child! It is quite obvious that your momma thinks you are extra special and loves you alot. But it certainly appears from these pics that there are others that think the same way. Hope your day is extra special just like you!

Happy Birthday to your gal! I can't believe how fast they grow, can you? Mine was 17 over the weekend - being my only, it's bittersweet, that's for sure! The kitty pics are so sweet, and so are the kiddies...but the black and white dance, very beautiful!

Conny said...

Melissa said...

Well, both your girls are cute! Actually your baby girl is just beautiful, and your furry girl Mia is so cute! You are, deservedly, a proud mama!

ps I always think that on a child's birthday, and Happy Birthday should be given to the mom too who, after all, did that hard work called Labour! :-)

Happy Birthday indeed! What wonderful pictures of your family! Love the dance photos! It goes by all too quickly.

Lois said...

What a lovely post! Your daughter is beautiful in all ways! Birthday wishes to your daughter and yes, the years go by far too quickly. I know when my youngest hit 20 it felt quite strange no longer having any of them as teenagers - a whole lot of disbelief that I could be that old was going on!! Mia is so cute!! My daughter is allergic to cats - not fun!!!

Lovely pictures, Margaret! A very happy birthday to the girl child, and many happy returns.

As a friend of mine is fond of saying at school music performances, "Aren't these kids great? They must have great parents."
