A Fall Birthday

Fifty years ago this morning, at 5:09, our second baby girl was born.   She was brought in "care of the dawn" so her name fits her well:  Cara Dawn.

Such a pretty little girl with lots of dark hair which grew to be naturally curly.  She was always the most serious of our three girls and could do just about anything she set her mind to do: sewing for the dolls, drawing and painting, collecting insects (led to a master's degree in entomology), and in recent years electrical and plumbing (learned well from her dad).  She gave us our first and second beautiful granddaughters.  She's a very kind, compassionate woman, just ask all the doggies and kitties she takes in.

So, Happy Birthday, dear one.  May you have many more happy and healthy years.

We love you much, Mama Charlotte and Popa Noel
