I cannot believe she is 39 today!
I remember when she was born. My Grandma stayed with us overnight, and in the morning, around 6 am when my Mom called from the hospital, Grandma breathlessly answered the phone. She said "It's twins?" and we screamed.
Of course, my Mom was kidding. We were happy it was a girl.
It was a very snowy winter. We picked Mom up at the hospital a few days later, just in time for Christmas, and I remember sliding down the hill from Burnaby General Hospital on the icy roads. My Mom held Marie on her lap!!!! There were no car seats for babies in those long ago days, and we didn't wear seat belts either.
That was a special Christmas with a new little baby in the house.
I was 10 years old. Between the baby sister and the gigantic snow drifts outside, it's surely a Christmas I'll never forget!
