1987. I was eleven and edging slowly out of my preteen years, towards becoming an official teenager. I have no recollection of what I may have requested for my birthday. But I can tell you what I probably did for my family dinner. I would have asked my mom to make her special chicken fingers. They were battered and fried and oh so yummy. Also, a big old batch of her special "chicken rice" would have been on the table along with with pickles and olives brought by my Grandma or Great Aunt. For my birthday "cake", I would have requested chocolate pie. Something I probably should make for my own son now!! We would have all sat down to eat it on the plastic Christmas tablecloth with the beautiful tree in the background - my birthday is a week before Christmas. And the presents would have been opened after dinner.

These family celebrations were fun then, but now that I am older and many of those people - including my mom - have passed on, they have become pretty special memories. They even outweigh many of my birthday parties with friends!

I want to hear about your special birthday memories! Journal a little bit about your favorite birthday memory and if you'd like, add a photo to the page!!

Here's mine:

I went with the most memorable birthday rather than best birthday memory.
And for someone who had never tried Art Journal style until a few days ago, I did this layout in the same style!

These are terrific! I love hearing about people's memories!!

Felis - Such thoughtfulness and poetry to your journaling! I'm glad you enjoyed your day, no matter what form it took!

Deborrah! My birthday is December 17th! How funny that we are only a day apart! There are always Christmas decorations in my birthday pictures!! LOL

Grace - That is a hysterical quote. We just were going through this at school the other day. All the funny ways that we try to avoid saying our real age. "I'm nine years away from being thirty" or some such business. It's awfully funny to me because I've never really been one to get wrapped up in age.

Barbara - I'm jealous too! What a fabulous car! I love how you said you went from one horsepower to another! LOL

Beck - You are so blessed to be able to celebrate your mother at this age. I'm so glad that she (and you guys) enjoyed the party!

Keep sharing those layouts ladies! They are so fun to read!

Yep, had a HUGE party for my 50th thanks to all my biker friends and then this one for my 75th. Oh I got cards and presents from family and flowers from hubby, but never a party. Bad childhood so no parties there.

I recently scanned the photo for a genealogy friend as the blond boy is in a family on which she keeps records. So it was a refreshed memory and helped bring back others.

This challenge gave me the opportunity to scrap some old photos.

My DH , deep in his hart, always wished to become a pilot. It never came to it, so for his 50th birthday I offered him the possibility to fly with a little aeroplane. ( with an instructeur) Smile
The weather was great, and I think the experience also!!
