Today is a extra special day in my family. We will be celebrating my Mom’s 81st birthday and also my daughter Allison’s 19th birthday. Alli came into the world landing on her Grandmother’s 62nd birthday in 1989. Not only was she Mom’s first granddaughter (she already had four grandson’s) but the first grandchild with blue eyes. My Mom never put pressure on me to have a girl – she only requested a “blue eyed” grandchild…you see brown eyes are the dominant gene in my family and chances were slim on blue.
We plan to have a celebration on Sunday so our whole family can celebrate these lovely ladies in the Maxwell clan. Happy Birthday Mom and Alli! I am blessed to have you both in my life! :)
