Wanna Guess Who Turned 30 Today?

Not me, that's for sure. I'm WAY older than 30. I feel way older anyway.

Does this 30-year-old baby picture help?


I'm not surprised. It doesn't look like the birthday girl at all. In my opinion. But that's just me.

Let's try a slightly more-recent photo...

Does the next one help? It's one of my favorites. I didn't take it, of course. 'Cause I was like 13 myself when it was taken.

I'm sure you're getting warmer. Which is good, because it would take me all day to post year by year shots. So I'm going to cheat and jump to 2006. These pics are some of my favorites. (I did take these.)

Yep, it's Shannon! She turned 30 today. Thirty! Can you believe it? The big three-oh.

She's gorgeous, isn't she? I can't take any of the credit for that one. She didn't get any of my genes, poor thing. Nevertheless, she still turned out pretty awesome. Not only is she beautiful, she's smart. Funny, too. And she's got a really big heart. She can cook, too.

She's always been a good big sister.

As an aside... this picture from our 2004 trip to Yellowstone still cracks me up. Shannon and Amy are both scolding Eric for just having murdered a bug.

And we can't forget that she's a fabulous aunt.

She's a wonderful daughter, too. And a great friend. She's also my most-devoted Blog-fan!

I'm very proud to have her in my life.


I love you!


  1. Happy Birthday Shan! Oh wait - we woke you up at 7am to tell you that already. Oh well. Happy Birthday again!

  2. Wow! A big 30. Gee I can't rmember when I was that young.
    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHANNON and many more of the Happiest Birthdays to come.

  3. I didn't see this until today, so it's like I get to keep celebrating! :-)

    Thanks for the mini trip down memory lane. I don't honestly know if I ever remember seeing that first picture before. The one of me in costume is also one of my favorites. And I had totally forgotten about Eric's bug killing - you can see how I annoyed I am with him in that picture.

    Thank you for saying so many nice things about me - what a great birthday present in itself!


Please say something...
