Time warp Tuesday: ancient birthday edition!

You know Jen runs Time Warp Tuesday, right? A chance to look back at your old photos?
 It was my birthday week last week, as you will recall, and it is always a SHOCK when it is NOT your birthday anymore!  You are no longer I sound childish? ;)

These photos are from my birthday in 1992.  I was a teacher in Chicago and flew to far northern Minnesota to see my sister's family.  Friday evening I arrived and it was 60+ degrees.  Woke up Saturday to 16 degrees and a boatload of snow...that is Minnesota, eh?
 My niece's birthday is just before mine and she had just turned 2 and she certainly was an adorable kid.  People love their family and brag about them, in this case one sentence sums her up:  she got a full scholarship to Harvard and graduated last spring....

Oh for cute! Both you and your niece! ;-D

Love the pics and nostalgia. Nice big hair. I think it trumps mine from the 80s. I am from Minnesota originally so I know a boatload of snow...and accents. LOL

Happy Tuesday!

Oh and congrats to the Harvard grad! Very great accomplishment!

Smart kid, that's fantastic.

Michèle Hastings said...

Congrats to your niece! Your family must be so proud of her.

She's worth bragging about.

One day a couple of years ago I had a 100 degree temperature swing between the 80s that I left in Tampa and the -20s that I got in Duluth, MN. Fun! I think you should extend the birthday celebrations as long as you like!

Now THAT is something to brag about!!

I wished you a happy birthday on facebook, right? Yes? I hope so!! The first few days of the month, we disappeared into no-reception-zone (no cell phones, no WiFi, it was awesome... and weird)
Hope YOUR birthday was awesome... and not weird! :)

What cute photos.....I TOO hate it when my birthday is over and I can't use the "but it's my birthday" excuse. ;)
Harvard??? How awesome is she? SO awesome!
