Happy Birthday Kellie

"AngeliCow" from Cow Parade (West Orange, New Jersey, 2001) is here to bring Heavenly Birthday Wishes to my precious angel daughter, Kellie.

I will never forget the afternoon you were born on October 23, 1974. Your father Larry and I were so excited to welcome our little girl to the family! Then, when you were only about one month old we took the first picture of our four generations together. That's you with me, and my mother, Grace, and her mother, Addie Lee.

Time seemed to fly by! Your brothers came along. You have always been so sweet to both of them. One day you were a little angel in your kindergarten Christmas play, and the next day you were a grown-up young woman graduating from high school.

Then Tim came along and we all fell in love with him and his children, Tony and Nicole. Next thing I knew my daughter was the mother of four wonderful children. We don't get to see Tony and Nicole as much as we would like to, but we know they are making their way in the world out in Montana. This family picture was taken back in about 1999 when they were here for a visit.

Now, here you are with your half grown babies goofing around at Disney World last week. How did they get so big, so fast?

Dearest Kellie, you know how much I love you, and how proud I am of you. You are my best friend. You mean so much to so many people. You are surely an angel sent from heaven above. Thank you for being the daughter, the sister, the mother, and the friend you are to all of us.

Happy Birthday!

Funny that you used Angel cow for Kellie. I always get her the Willow Tree Angels for her birthday. :)
