 On election day, on Nov. 8th, 24 years ago, this baby was born at 11:32 PM.
Her daddy was just a kid (actually 28), but she was his third child and the first daughter.
The frosting on the cake, we said.
 The brothers loved her.
At 5 lbs. 11 oz. she was smaller than her Cabbage Patch doll.
 She grew fast and was sweet. Her mom was only 28 too.
(Twenty-nine by this picture's time.)
Happy birthday, little girl with the big smile and the happy, kind heart.


  1. OMGoodness, Jannell, in the picture of you holding her, you look just like A. today. I'd never seen the resemblance so strongly, but in that one you're the spit of her! :)

  2. What beautiful pictures, Jannell! I love this post- your family makes me ; )! I love you!!
