Happy Birthday, Aunt Val!

It was a happy day when my little sister, Valerie Debora, was born the day before Valentine's Day!



Val went from being a cute baby...


...to a cute little girl...



...with golden curls...as opposed to the homely older sister with glasses (these had pink plastic frames) and frizzy permanented brown hair...gee, mom...


The ringlets...




Fourth birthday?


Rapunzel, rapunzel....


Wearing Great Gma Dean's "tea dress" ...


A classic icon of the times...(the hula hoop)


Four generations: the frizzy haired one(me), Val, Gpa Earle, Gma Clara, Gpa Roger holding Jesse.


2nd grade? Val you'll have to help me get these dated...


Jr. High?


Mom and the three of us...I hadn't remembered the "twin" outfits...


High school...



A beautiful bride...


Evelyn, Matt, Dick, Val and Dad...


Matt and Heather, Dick and Val...



Val is the artistic Dean girl...the "crafty" one...the organized one who gets things done! I love having such a wonderful sister.
