Happy Birthday to My Daughter ~ Angela

In honor of my oldest daughter's birthday, I thought I would post a few pictures of her.






This is me when I was pregnant with her in 1972


Me and Gerald in front of our first home when I was pregnant with Angela

I don't know how you all do this but it took me and my husband hours to do this with the new editor.  There has to be a faster way!!!
Angela is a ninth grade high school English teacher, is National Board Certified and working on her master degree which she will finish this spring.

I think we all have a set of photos of our first child that we treasure forever!! You were so cute pregnant, even though you look about 12! Baby in the crib...adorable, such an expression! The first birthday cake picture. I have one just like it of my daughter and she has one just like it of my granddaughter!

Happy Birthday to her and congrats to you!

I laughed when I saw the Beatles haircut in the second picture. Great shots, and I agree that the resemblance is striking between Bryson and Angela. Happy birthday, Accomplished One!

MaMa,
Thank you for the wonderful words of praise you wrote about me. I love these pictures, as well. We need to get these old albums out more often and look through them.

Thank you to all my Mom's blog readers out there who wished me a happy birthday today.

Love,
Angela

Gorgeous photos... your daughter and grandson are spitting images of each other?
The new editor.. I'm having no problems at all with it... you just make sure the cursor is where you want the photo before you upload it!

Blasé said...

so, did Angela ever grow-up??

oh, I see...she is now a ninth-grade school teacher. COOL!

blueviolet said...

What a wonderful look back to your darling Angela. Happy Birthday to her!

PS. I always upload all of my photos at once to flickr or photobucket and then put them into my posts from there.

Hi Gayle, this is a nice piece with pic's of you, Gerald, and Angela. It's too bad that we didn't get to see her then. I noticed that in the crib, I see a bit of your grandson in her eyes and the look on her face. Have you ever noticed that? It amazes me how kids in our family can resemble someone you'd least expect. Even ones born into other siblings kids of the original 8 from Granpa/Ma Clawson. Thanks for sharing, Aunt Barbara
