Happy Birthday, Katie!
Here's little Katie (l) showing her sense of humor at an early age.
And here she is (r) feeding sugar pops cereal to the cranky rooster, Snowball, in the back yard in Bismarck. She loved to get up early in those days to play outside.
Here are Tom, Peggy, Katie, and Sally dyeing Easter eggs. I brought the picnic table inside during the winter and set it up in the big kitchen so the kids would have a place to color and paint and cut out things.
Katie enjoyed it especially, I think. She's now a working artist. This is her bio from an exhibit in Arizona.
Here are the lovely Katie and her siblings, left to right, Peggy, Sally, and Tom at Katie's wedding to Al Abdou. They have a strong bond formed in the days when they were each other's only playmates in our house in the Missouri River bottomland in Bismarck, North Dakota.
So, happy birthday, dear Katie. May light shine on and through you.
