Happy Birthday, Susie!

Susie entered our lives on this day 28 years ago.  She has been enhancing it ever since, even though these days she usually chooses to be on a different continent!!!  There are so many memories and pictures I could use today, but this one always makes me laugh.

In 1991 we rented a house at the beach.  The residents hosted games for the kids.  One of the games was pie eating.  There is nothing funnier than watching a dozen eight year olds dive face-first into a blueberry pie!

Of course, Susie won.  Did you doubt it?

Happy birthday, Susie!

Didn't doubt it for a minute Jack, that is definitely a victory pose! Susie is almost the same age as Aimee, she will be 28 in Feb. next year! Wonderful choice of photo Jack.

What a wonderfully expressive pose. I'm sure she's still as feisty. Happy birthday Susie - neat to combine birthday and Thanksgiving. TWO days of celebrations.
