Happy Birthday, M!
These first twenty-five years of having you for a son have been great, and we look forward to many more. Hope you had as much fun celebrating today's birthday as you did your first one! (or maybe more--You can't tell by the smile in this picture, but you actually weren't feeling all that great. You were coming down with roseola, though we didn't know it at the time of the party.)
We love you, our Gift from God! --Mom and Dad

The Long and the Short of It

Quite some time ago, I mentioned that I used to have really long hair. A commenter (Rachel?) said I should post a photo. So, here it is! This was probably about nine years' worth of growth. I cut it over Christmas vacation my junior year of college.
Here I am with the roommate who helped convince me it was time!
(She was right. Thanks, K!)
For the short, here's how it looked the end of May at daughter K's college graduation.
