Lovely outfit there mom...

Miss Poppins insisted I put this picture on here. This is Mom and Dad making googly eyes at each other during their rehearsal dinner.

Here she is pregnant with her first child (me!). Notice the ghastly shoes.
I think my mother looks so beautiful in this picture. It was taken in 1992 I believe.

"Her children arise up, and call her blessed; her husband also,
and he praiseth her..." Proverbs 31:28 KJV
