My birthday is coming up, which always make me nostalgic for the "good old days" when parents and grandparents made a big deal out of your birthday. My grandmother would always bake me one of my two favorite cakes, strawberry or angel food (not from a box mix), frosted with that sugary/gritty 7 Minute Frosting which is still my favorite to this day.
I thought I'd share a few of my birthday party snaps. Don't laugh, you know you have these same photos.
My favorite, taken with my Grandpa Robertson:
I wish I was this skinny again:
You can see the theme here: the decorations are those crunchy sugar things you get at the store:
I think I was trying to look sweet so I would get more presents:
Same year, with my Uncle Charlie sneaking into the picture:
Birthdays don't have the same glow any more, but it's fun to pull out the old photos and remember.
