HAPPY 36TH BIRTHDAY, HOLLY!
Daughter Holly turned 36 years old December 16. We celebrated her special day this evening with a birthday dinner at Rib City. From left around the table as related to Holly: hubby Jerry, nephew Knox, sister Kelly, son Elijah, the birthday girl, daughter Shelby and dad Neil
There’s a song called ‘The Kid Inside’ ~ that’s what this picture makes me think of ~ Holly is always willing to play with the kids
Her traditional Baskin-Robbins birthday cake ~ chocolate chip ice cream with chocolate cake ~ I can’t even remember when this got started, but it is a tasty tradition ~ With her birthday being nine days before Christmas, she’d always end up with a Christmas-themed cake ~ I think she hated it after a while but lately has embraced those red and green decorations
You know you’re getting “old” when it takes this many people to light your candles
Blow out the candles, quick before the cake melts! [Also celebrating with Holly her aunt Jane and uncle Don and cousin Julia who is invisible in this picture, sorry, Julia…] I love Elijah’s expression here
Here she is way back in 1982 blowing out four candles on her Christmas-decorated cake. Dig that ‘Annie’ hat! I remember she wore it the whole day [and night]. Happy birthday, dear daughter, our almost-Christmas baby! You are the best Christmas present we ever received. Your dad and I love you so very much!!
