Whose Birthday Is It?

In case you were wondering who is celebrating a birthday today, let me point out the birthday girl:
These photos are from my 5th birthday party.  That's Virginia, one of my childhood friends, on the left, and me on the right.  I believe there are several photos through the years of us kids pointing to ourselves at birthday parties to designate the birthday person.  I don't remember how the tradition started but I'm guessing it's because, as you can see from the photo below, my brother Craig is trying to fool everyone into thinking it's his birthday.  What a scammer!
But aren't we cute in our little party hats?  From the top, left to right, Ruth, Jill, Anne, Virginia, Heather, Janice (all my little friends from kindergarten), me and Craig.

I'm noticing my hair style hasn't changed too much over the years, although hair colour is different and my bangs are straighter, now that my mom isn't the one cutting them. :)

Happy birthday, yesterday!!! I'm not in possession of the family birthday photos, or I might be tempted to post a similar type of message in July. Very clever!
