Well it's tootin time again! Got several toots for you this week...I just love to toot on my girls!!!! (LOL) That didn't even sound right did it?

We celebrated my middle daughter's 28th birthday with a shopping trip and of course out to eat. We carried the oldest granddaughter as she is at that age to where she really enjoys the little outings. 

 Left to right...Baby Girl...Marti Leigh. Melissa (birthday girl) Oldest daughter Kristy, her daughter Raygen and yours truly!

Olive Garden was the choice place to eat! You can't go wrong with soup, salad and bread sticks!

Me and the birthday girl!

The Birthday girl...Middle Daughter Melissa.(Melissa Kay Conner Jackson)  Born on July 9th, 1984 at 7:15 a.m. Weighed 7lbs 5 oz with a head full of black hair. I am talking she had so much hair that Velcro hair bows was not needed. We went right on to using the ones that snapped! She was born 7 minutes after I arrived at the hospital! One thing I could do was BIRTH in a hurry!

She and my soninlove Brad just celebrated their 7th wedding anniversary. They celebrated with a weekend trip to St. Augustine Fla. 

Their two beautiful little girls and my granddaughters.
Mallory...age 4

Kyleigh....age 1

Happy Birthday Melissa!

Hugs and blessings, Cindy
