October Birthday Girl!

Today marks another year in the life of our youngest.
Kathy is our October child.
My, how the years fly by......

Here she is in '87 with Wally the cat and our pumpkin harvest of that Fall.

She and her sister, Kylie, and friend, Jill, made good use of a few of them, and had fun doing it. Posted by Picasa

Here she is in '82 (with me) doing her Elton John impression :)

She was born while we were living in Australia. We moved back here to the farm in upstate NY when she was two and a half years old.

We spent a lot of time with my mum in her garden while we were over there. This picture of Kathy with her 'Nana Pat' always warms my heart and makes me smile. She was a great source of joy to Mum. Posted by Picasa

Jumping ahead to her 18th year. Didn't I say the years fly by? Seems like only yesterday she was carving those Jack-o-lanterns.

Now she's all grown up and making her mark on the world.

Clowning around here with Akio, her beau.

A little more serious here as bridesmaid at Kylie and Ko's wedding reception last June.

Kathleen Elizabeth, I present to you today's bloom of the Queen Elizabeth rose.
Wishing you the happiest of birthdays sweet daughter, with all our love,
Mom and Dad

Kerri, happy birthday to your perfectly lovely daughter. She and that beautiful rose must bring you such joy. How proud you must be of her.

Congrats to you, Kerri, for being a mom and having such a beautiful daughter! Oh, and happy birthday to Kathleen!

If she is anything like most kids, she will look at the rose and wonder is this all I get... and open her card - shaking it out to see if there is any folding money inside before reading the perfect greeting card verse that you stood in the card section so long to find at WalMart...

Happy Birthday Cathy! You look like a princess, so beautiful! Your mom has always had a good eye for photography and has captured precious moments that now we are able to enjoy. What a sweet post... xoxoxox

My Brian has a birthday tomorrow. I wish my scanner were working so I could do a similar blog. How cute to see the "growing up" photos, and what a beautiful young lady she is.

Happy Birthday Kathy!

The picture of Kathy with your mother is priceless. You can from the look on her face that she adored her nana too.

Happy bithday to Kathy from Germany!

I just commented on your "evolution of a garden" post and I must say that I really admire your '87 Jack-o-lanterns, too! I planted some of those pumpkins this year too but unfortunately, all I could harvest was 1 very little Jack-o-lantern.

Happy gardening in your fall garden, Kerri!

Best wishes, Anita

Kathy, I'm sorry I missed your birthday by a mile. I hope you had a fantastic day.

Your mother has a wonderful collection of photos of you and your siblings. Such a beautiful girl you were, and now young woman.

I'm sure you are a true and loving friend, daughter, sister, and aunt, and a delight to all who know you. Very much like your dear parents.

May this year be your very best yet.

Time certainly flies. What a beautiful daughter you have. Many congrats on her birthday!

Love the pumpkin harvest you had then. The happiness of the girls is leaping from my computer screen.

Great pic of your mother with your October girl, no words are needed when you show that one.

Thanks for sharing!

I came to visit you to desire a good week to you.
Much attention with our children. It has many criminals who steal them and kill.
Until always
