Happy Birthday to Megz

Megan, a cute girl at Christmas

For my birthday a few weeks ago my sister Megz gave me a special tribute. Because of the way that warmed my soul I am carrying on a now-tradition of special birthday blogging. Nothing crazy or overly sappy, just a thought or two in honor of the bday sister. Diana, (in a month when you read this) I will do a bday blog post for you too in 9 months so get excited.

Anyway, back to Megan. Happy Birthday! Megan has always been great at saying she's the one that came up with all our imaginative games. Closet ghost stories and Elevator, Hot Lava, Store, Lost Children in the Windstorm, Hammockhollow family, the list goes on. As we got older I had to pry her out of her room or off the piano to beg her to create more games. I'll give her credit for 50% of them since it's her birthday.

Diana, Me, Megan 1983
I only posted pictures when we were all cute and not the adolescent weird looking ones with big bangs and weird teeth.



Get a real sense of Megan as a sister: Megan wrote two messages in my yearbook in '95. One as fake hottie Jason Fernelius, to up my self-esteem and make it look like I had some cool boy write in my yearbook. If you can't read it it says, "Too bad I'm graduating so I can't ask you out. You are one of the cutest chicks I know even though you're so short (just can't resist a warm sisterly dig). Call me sometime and we'll do something so those sophomore boys won't bug you. Jason Fernelious. P.S. I find my mustache sexy."

How creative is she? Her real message is down below but it is very personal so if you can't read it by yourself I'm sorry. Something about boxers. I don't remember that story.
Megan was always my counselor and calming device when I was tantruming or in trouble, which was a lot. She was not a meanie! I can honestly say she was the nicest oldest sister to both me and Diana. She was also brave to be the first girl after 7 older brothers, but I'm not sure she had a choice on that one. Thanks for paving the way! Happy Happy Birthday!

I am glad you did a birthday tribute to Megan! She is a great gal and one hot mama!
I love the pics and year book entries.

You do have a lot of history together. Maybe Megan can make up an entry for my yearbook, too. 15 years later, but who will know?

happy birthday!

Megz said...

Thanks so much for the tenderness. I knew if I did one for you it would pay back for me. I do have to say thankthankthank you for keeping us all under the age of 12 in the photos.
Maybe one day you'll be lucky and have Jason Fernelius leave a comment.....it might make Rut jealous though.

That was a fun blog to read and I enjoyed the pictures that you scanned in too. That was a clever year book idea too. What creative people you are. I take it I'd be in the dog house if I scanned in pictures of you all after age 12 and before you all hit your full beautifulness?
