1861- American Civil War- Virginia secedes from the Union.

1964- Ford unveils the Mustang at the NY World's Fair.


2 Important Birthdays
1837- My Great-great Grandpa, J.P Morgan, American financier and philanthropist
1972 - My BFF from Charleston WV, Jennifer Garner, American actress


1 Death
1790- Benjamin Franklin, American inventor, diplomat, and printer


Holiday or Observance
Nada (except for Liturgical Feast day for a bunch of Catholic Saints)



Ok so now to the fun part. Janice posted a few pics of her as a kid. HOW FUN!!! So now I challenge EVERYONE to post a picture of themselves as a kidd-0. And don't even say that you don't have any on your computer or a scanner b/c I went all ghetto like and took a picture of a picture! So drum-roll please........Here I am circa 1982 as a Strawberry Shortcake Majorette. I must say that I have nice legs for a 4 year old!!! And I'm loving the Dorothy Hamill hair-do, thanks mom!


Lets go: Maria, Andrea, Heather, Stephanie, and Anne. I want to see those pictures!!!!

Oh, my goodness, it's as if I'm seeing Sophie in a couple of years!! You sure do know how to pose for the camera, don't you? I noticed we had he same Dorothy Hamil hairdo!!

BTW, I had to go "ghetto" on my old photos because I don't have a scanner either. I can't wait to see everyone else's pictures!!!

OK, you may have been a cute Strawberry Shortcake, but the Guyan Valley Sweethearts were much better! BTW, Strawberry Shortcake is making a HUGE comeback so you'll have to get Sophie some. Talk about memories!!

I loved Strawberry Shortcake when I was little, I am so glad she is making a comeback so that I can buy her for Ashley!
I love your little outift, it was so cute, but the hat makes the outfit!
