Happy Birthday to you!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHANNON!!!!
Today marks the 27th birthday of one of my dearest, Shannon.
We went to the same elementary school, but her family moved to Nashville right before she started Junior High. We've remained best of friends even after all of these years!
Below, you will see a lovely photo taken of us in '93, not too many years after our friendship began. I am about 12 in the picture and she's probably 11. Did anybody else love those booths as much as us? Wow.
Don't hate me for posting this, Shan, but I came across it recently and just HAD to share it! HA! I've also posted a picture taken of us last summer. I just wanted you know that despite our big bangs and bushy eyebrows, we did turn out ok. :)
(I'm very thankful that you can't see my hair very well in the above pics. It was before I "discovered" that my hair was indeed curly. I wore it as just one big frizzy mess.)I've also copied MSKS's alphabet game to tell you a little bit more about my sweet Shannon.
Amazing friend
