44 years ago today, Mike was born...almost in the doorway of the E.R.!

Thank goodness Grandma Hardie didn't take another wrong turn, or he may have been born in her car!

Birthdays past

A classic:
On his first birthday in Dubuque, with a big bump and bruise on his forehead...

...he sits on my cousin Shelly's lap to blow out his candle.

I believe this is Mike's 10th birthday. Not only did he have tear drop shaped ear lobes, he also had a pointy little chin!

Oh, I remember that Central Mustangs T-shirt. I even remember picking out that wild mascot for our elementary school.

Our birthdays are only 6 days apart, so I'm not sure whose cake this was since we're both blowing out the candles. Maybe we were making it easy on Mom that year and shared a cake?

Mom, did we both always ask for chocolate with chocolate? I know I did!

Awww...I missed this! Such sweet pictures! Love the one of you and Mike blowing out the candles. My boys' birthdays are a week apart, too (you probably already knew that, though, since you are one of my only loyal readers!). :)

I still can't get over the resemblance of your brother in your children! What a gift.
