New Years Baby

Today was my sister Marlene's(Marti for short) birthday. She claimed the title of New Years Baby, 1950. Mom, in the picture with her, received many gifts for the distinction, including a ride home in an ambulance. Her picture was plastered all over the newspaper, and also was on her first birthday. Now, it's just another birth and no big deal. I wish they'd go back to the way it was. It was something special, a major event. What's really funny, is her daughter Robyn's father-in-law was born in the same hospital, and almost got the title that year, but Mom and Marti beat him out! Small world!

That is so cool about the 1950's New Year's births.

You stinker! I'm going to have to do some thinking before I do the tag. I like your Why post. That's so true. I have a couple shirts that turned into crop tops and I can't give them up and I can't wear them so I found some wide lace and made thick ruffles on the bottom. Hmm?
