My favorite time of year and an assignment.

September has arrived, and it is one of my favorite times of the year.  Mostly because it is the month of my birth.

I am particularly excited about this year because I have a significant birthday coming up.  You know- the big 3-0.

Last year was an amazing birthday spent with all of my friends around the world.

This year I have another idea.

This year I am feeling a little nostalgic.  Most of my pictures are in storage, and I will not see them for a few more years.  So, this year, I would like pictures of you and me.  From the distant or recent past.

If you don't have a picture of the two of us together, how about a stick figure drawing or an edited photo to make it look like we were together at the Grand Canyon or on a hot air balloon or the Great Wall of China.  Anything.

I would like the pictures by the 26th of September.  That means you have time to search it out and find the perfect picture of us.  I am excited to see what you come up with!

You can e-mail me pictures benily05 (at) gmail (dot) com or if you want to mail them and you have my address, that will work too.

Just so you know-  I will be probably be putting them on the blog, unless you ask me not to.

It is going to be a great birthday!

Here are some pictures I found in the one album that is not in storage.

 First day of school 1991.
I am in the green and black.
Pretty sure I always thought I was cooler than I actually was.

Christmas 1987.
I am the child in the center surrounded by Jodie, Allen and my Grandpa.
What is going on with my hair? And my face?

Paige, me, Taylor.

Family picture 1983? 
I am the one in the stripes.
I love my parents' glasses.  

My aunt Jodie and me.
I think this is when she came home from her mission.

What a great idea! I'll have Cait and Kelsey work on the drawing as it will ONLY be a stick figure if I do it!
