My sister Christine celebrated (dare I say?) her 50th birthday today. I wish I could be with her to join in the celebration but I'm so glad she has lots of friends.
Chris owns a consignment shop in Clearwater, Florida and her customers have all become her friends. I think she takes after our mom.
Christine loves people.I found some old photos that I had to share with you. This is right after Christine was brought home from the hospital. I was thrilled to have a little sister. My brother Steve had hoped for a brother but I think he was pretty happy with her, after all.Here my brother Steve is holding Christine who looks like a little doll. Of course, I had my own doll to hold.
Here she is when she was about two or three years old with our cousin James. She had fallen down the stairs and broke her ankle. That's the truth too. She still had a smile!
Here she is all grown up. I think she was in her twenties here. Hmm ...I think that's my dress. We used to borrow each other's clothes.
Chris was my maid of honor at Greg and my wedding in November of 1984.
Here is Christine with her family. Her husband Pat and her stepsons Zach and Taylor. And she's a dog lover. Ren has since died but she now has Jack.
So, happy birthday Chris!
I miss you and wish I could be there with you to give you a hug.
