Kelli's birthday-Show and Tell Friday

Today is my daughter Kelli's birthday! I wonder where all the years have gone. I would like to show and tell you about some of my favorite pictures of her.

She was about 2 months old in this picture...just starting to smile!

Here she is at age 2...the same smile!

Kelli the night we celebrated her graduation from nursing school in front of Red Lobster. Kelli and Chad on their wedding day in 1998.
Kelli with Connor in June of 2003.
Kelli in the fall of 2007 at Connor's soccer game...just a few weeks before Cooper was born.Kelli and Cooper this year...May 2008.
Kelli and I have so many things in common including reading, gardening, bargain shopping and antiquing. Maybe one day soon I'll post some pictures of some of her special things in her home.
One interest we don't share is our profession!
She is a nurse, and I am a educator.
But the biggest interest we have is in the picture below......

Connor and Cooper
Thanks for stopping by today. Please leave Kelli a comment on her birthday!
Thanks to another sweet Kelli at There's No Place Like Home for hosting Show and Tell Friday.

Awwwwww, Diane ... I loved your post about Kelli. She's just beautiful and radiates happiness. I know you're proud of her.

Our daughter, Whitney, is an RN, too.

Conner and Cooper are adorable. Don't you wish you could keep them little like that for a while? They grow up so fast.

I hope your day is good ... I'll go wish Kelli a happy birthday now.


Southern Lady said...

I'm back, Diane ... I was under the impression that Kelli had a blog, but I see that she doesn't, so I'll leave her birthday note here with you.

Hi, Kelli ... Best wishes for a birthday celebration filled with love and happiness and sweet kisses from your precious little guys. Connor and Cooper are so adorable.

I hope your mom will post pictures of the party.

What a beautiful daughter you have, Diane, and two adorable grandsons who look just like her!

I was an RN and my daughter is going to grad school for her Masters in Education, so we are the opposite of you and Kelli. Both noble and much needed professions!

To answer your question --I'm not sure why I am getting feedburner feed for your blog on my blogroll? I entered it the same as all the rest. If you do find out the answer please let me know and I'll correct it. Thanks!

Hugs, Pat

Sorry I'm late with my birthday wishes but I hope Kelli had a wonderful birthday.

Her smile is the same beautiful smile from when she only 2 months until now.

Her children are so cute! I love the red hair. I've always wished I had red hair.
