Hey, I'm the Birthday Girl!

Today, January 31st, is my birthday! I have been told numerous times that I was born during a blizzard. It was so cold and there was tons of snow on the ground. My dad had a broken back and was in a full body cast and my mom either slipped or almost slipped walking to the car to go to the hospital. (I've been told that explains a lot!)I was born late at night and was just moments from being a February baby. I think I was 9 lbs and was over 18" in length. And, of course had red hair! My name, Amber has nothing to do with my hair color, although a lot of people think it does. Where it actually came from, I am not sure.

I told Ryan the only thing I want today is NOT to cook dinner!! I want him to take me out! We really do not do anything really special for the adults in my family for birthdays, which is fine with me!!

Here are some pictures to share. I really don't have that many pictures of me in my adult life, I am usually the one taking the pictures.

This is Ryan and myself at our wedding party. We got married at the courthouse and had a little party about a month later to celebrate.

I am about 6 months old here (according to the date on the picture)

I think I am about 3 or 4 years in Myrtle Beach, SC

About 2 or 3 jamming out to the record player!

This is one of my favorite pictures! I am of course the baby, my grandmother is holding me, my mother is sitting, next to her is my great grandmother, and behind her is my great aunt (grandmother's sister) There are 4 generations in the picture. It was taken out at my great grandparents farm.
