On ____, a wonderful event took place. I was born. That started my mom's career as a marvelous mommy!

If I had the money I needed, I would...(missing sentence). . .Secret and take her out to eat at Red Lobster. I would also clean the potty for a month.

This is me!

Yes, this is me. Boy, I sure was cute! Ha! Ha! My birthday was in April, but I was really supposed to be born the end of February. I guess you could tell I was a late bloomer. I was born in a small town in Idaho that only had one stop light.

Here are my gorgeous parents. This picture is from when they were newlyweds. They are standing outside my Grandma's house.

We lived in Idaho until I was five and then moved to El Paso, Texas. I attended Hillside Elementary School, Ross Middle School, Bassett Jr. High and Burges High School.
