~ADRIENNE~

 
 ~WAITING FOR BABY #2 ARRIVAL~
Visiting Nebraska Summer 1984
(My Eyes Are ALWAYS Shut!)

Had it ever been required, I would have gladly given up any other earthly love for my children.  From the very beginning of their lives they've been my heart's song.  I love them with the whole of who I am and more.
 FOREVER SIDE BY SIDE
Adrienne and Her Daddy - 1984

Today my beautiful daughter, Adrienne, turns 28.  Seems like yesterday I held her in my arms...today she towers over me having grown into a simply gorgeous young woman.  I'm so proud of her.
~A DREAM BABY~
Coming Home - 1984 (Car Seat is in FRONT!)

Can't help but share with you a few photos from our past...so wishing there had been digital cameras back then.  I've added captions to the pictures as I reflect back upon the days they were taken...
~ONE MONTH OLD~
Baby Adrienne and Mommy With Her Eyes Shut (Again!)

Taking this trip down memory lane brings back to my mind so many wonderful moments spent with family...
~OUR YOUNG FAMILY - EASTER - 1985
With Gramma and Grampa N.

Life has a way of scurrying by, doesn't it?  When I think of the blessings upon my life none have been so dear to me than those that surround me becoming a mom. 
~SUMMER FUN~
DADDY'S FAVORITE PIC - 1986

This picture was snapped in front of a home we almost purchased in Yukon, OK.  Brandon was four and Adrienne was almost 2!  If I'm being honest these days were some of my most favorite of all I've lived.  Simple, carefree and broke!
~EASTER SUNDAY - 1986~
Ruffles of Pink
(2nd Favorite Dress I Ever Made Her)

I loved putting Adrienne in PINK!
 
 ~WITH YOUR FIRST FRIEND and PROTECTOR~
With Brandon - Christmas 1988

And in RED!
~CURLY LOO and BRANDON, TOO!~
Summer - 1989

And in BLUE!
~MONKEY GIRL~
Kindergarten Scholar -1989

I'll never forget this day...I turned around and nearly freak out that Adrienne had climbed to the top of the door...
~THE THREE OF US - EASTER - 1991

Adrienne, Rebecca and Rebecca's Hair! (BAH!)
~NO NATURAL CURLS HERE!~
EASTER - 1991

Just in case you THOUGHT her hair was curly on it's own!

 ~AS CLOSE AS EVER~
With Brandon - Summer 2002

Playing at the lake with big brother, Brandon.  Young fun in the sun!  Missing these days so much!

Happy Birthday, Adrienne!  I hope and pray someday you experience the joy and pride of being a mother for yourself.  My relationship with you has been one of the sweetest I've ever known and you bless me more than I can say.  Thank you for being such an awesome daughter and for the deep love you show your family and friends.  We hope one day to deserve your grace and goodness.

Love you MOST!  HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
(Looking forward to a day of fun with you!)

Rebecca, I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed reading your beautiful blog over the past week or so. (LOTS!) I haven't had much time for blogging or creating, myself lately, but when I could grab a few quiet moments, I've been here enjoying your sweet world. Thank you!...Sending the sweetest happy birthday wishes to your gorgeous daughter. My oldest son turns 28 in just a few days, on Halloween!
Have a lovely weekend! xo Paulette

Dearest Rebecca,

Happy 28th birthday to Adrienne. We lived already in the US of A at that time... Fond memories all those pictures. We know, as Pieter wrote his book for daughter Liz we have relived many fond memory. Life is a fast, awfully fast event but it is worthwhile for all its fond memories.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

What beautiful memories you shared with us. We lived in Moore, OK for 10 years while my Sweetie was stationed at Tinker AFB, my family was young then too and my daughter was born there.

Happy birthday to your lovely daughter! And may you enjoy more memories together.
