Happy Birthday, Carla!

August 6, 1982 - 10:33 pm - our daughter Carla Erin was born - life changed forever at that instant  - and today she is 30 years old - it can't be, she just came home with us.

She came home from the hospital in the green sweater set that Mom made, her hospital bracelet in on the cap, I can't believe how tiny it is, I haven't looked at that in a long time... Click on the pic for a closer view. 

We were amazed we had a little red head - although she had no hair for the first two years!

Freckles galore..

These birthdays were all celebrated in Prince Edward Island - every summer we would pack up and head east to visit all the relatives - Carla always ended up with numerous cakes and birthday celebrations when she was there.  Her standard birthday meal was spaghetti, not any more.....

Now she wants a lobster for her birthday!!!

Carla's going to see The Bangles and B'52's!!  

We love our Carla - she is a beautiful young woman, smart and funny - we wish all of the very best things for her, always!!   Happy Birthday!


  1. The Bangles and The B52's???
    What a lucky Birthday Girl!
    Oh I loved the Bangles! The picture of Carla with her beaded rainbow necklace is very cute...they all are of course.
    Happy Birthday to your very beautiful daughter Jill! :)

  2. Time surely goes by quickly. My niece turned 14 today and I cannot believe it. Happy birthday to Carla! I hope she enjoys the bands.

  3. What a cute redhead she is! Oh, I am drooling over that lobster. Think she would share? lol! When you young you think they will be small forever. Then you blink and they are all grown up. Happy Birtday Carla!
