Happy Birthday Tammi!!!

Yum
Today is my little sister's birthday!

Being the oldest (on both sides of the family) I got a lot of attention. I mean, an abnormal amount of attention. If you don't believe me, ask my sister.

There are pages and pages of photo albums of me and my various birthdays. All in different dresses, hairstyles, gifts, and smiling grandparents and great grandparents looking lovingly on while I take my first bite of cake.

Not the same for Tammi.

Not that she wasn't loved (even though my mom can't remember birthing her, seems that she was nearly dying of pneumonia, although that is a story itself) but it seemed that once we got into the Terri mode it was difficult to get into the Tammi mode.

This photograph is the only picture I know of in existence of a birthday of Tammi's. And, it is rather suspect, since one cannot see a candle.



Happy birthday dear Tammi! Even though there is no proof, I do remember you being the center of attention from time to time!

  4. Happy Birthday to your sister Tammi! Me, I don't have any siblings and neither does my husband! Maybe that is why I had three kids!

  7. I just popped in from Sidewalk Shoes and wanted to wish Tammi a Happy Birthday!

    See, I was the middle sister, but once my baby (coughcough) sister came along, I seemed to fade into the woodwork.
    Alright... so I've got issues, okay? ;-)

    (note to self: always double check for spelling. I almost left "pooped in", but caught it just in time!)

  12. Happy B-Day Tammi,

    Being the oldest of 8 myself, I notice that the pictures get less and less as we go down the line. My poor baby bro hardly has any. Cindy

  16. I am in awe of you, Terri! How do you work, set beautiful tables, review books AND blog (plus all of the other things you are involved with!) You should write a book yourself on organization---multi-tasking! You're amazing!

    I so enjoyed this post about your sister and the lack of pictures! :) That would make a great story to submit to some magazine.
    Your dinner out sounded wonderful! We also went out--early meal at a little Italian Restaurant we hadn't been to in a long time. It was also very good. Our waiter was a "boy" (grown with 2 kiddos now) who used to attend school with our daughter. He was waiting tables as a way to pick up a few extra dollars on the side.
    I have heard of "flat Stanley"--I think Stitchin Stella is the same idea. Taking photos out in public of the papery doll does draw attention, I noticed!
    Have a great rest of the week!
