One Of The Best Days Of My Life ~

August 10, 1987 ~ Yes, one of the very BEST days of my entire life!


Hey Garrett, in honor of your birthday I dedicate this post to you and wish you a very happy birthday.

Here are a few memorable pictures that are certain to make you smile as you ponder this question:

"Why is she doing this?":D

Answer: "Because IL&IMY"

Your very first picture

Puppy OR Person?

Garrett (it's a person)
Monday August 10, 1987
6:07 PM
9 lbs 8oz ~ 22 inches

(you look like Lily)

Here are some notable facts from 1987:

1) You were born :D
2) Ronald Regan was President
3) George Bush was Vice-President
4) Popular song: "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" Whitney Houston
5) Hit Movie: Fatal Attraction
6) Gas was .87 per gallon (is that possible?)
7) Stamp cost .22 cents
8) New car cost 9,293.
9) New home cost 129,000

You were born under the year of the Rabbit ~ You are the kind of person people like to be around ~ You are affectionate, obliging, and always pleasant ~Being cautious and conservative, makes you successful in business.

I would agree that you are all that and more!

Adorable At 8 Months

And yes, you were dining on the dog food!

Cute At ONE

When I grow up I want to be...

A Mickey Mouse Fire Chief

Had I known where life would take you I would have propped you up at a desk, diligently working on the computer, with a poster of Time Square taped to the window before snapping this picture.

I really do not know where the time went:

When you get home from work tonight maybe you and Drew can break out the Arts & Craft box and update this with your larger "rainbow hands" and send it to me! :D

Wishing you a wonderful birthday!!!!

And remember...

Have a great day and an exciting, rewarding, happy, healthy and safe year ahead!

IL&IMY, always!

Good thing you posted his birth certificate. We wouldn't want anyone wondering if he actually is a US Citizen. LOL

Happy Birthday, Garrett!

Garrett said...

1) My feet look like a gargoyle's
2) I still occasionally eat dog food (but only when I'm drunk)

Thanks Marie
