Yesterday was my birthday...I spent it doing some art, playing on the computer,(reading all the good wishes sent my way - thanks all) and watching a movie with the family and going out to dinner. It was perfect.
The picture on the left is a picture Jesse took of me at the dinner table having a grand old time. He took it with my brand new birthday gift...the Canon SD 600 which I love, love, love... It's lighter and smaller then the Canon I used to carry in my purse...and SO much fun to play with. He really liked this shot...and I must say the movement caught the energy of the dinner...we had lots of laughs.
Here's the first picture I took with my new digital camera of my kids Becca and Jesse...

Our waitress took this family photo of us all...there I am breaking the rules and wearing white after Labor bold am I in my old age!

and then she brought me out a huge slice of chocolate cake to go with my cosmopolitan...pure decadence...

I really enjoyed seeing the family portrait! What a photogenic family! And that piece of cake looks doubt just like you had imagined it would be years ago. (lol)

Those kind of birthdays are the best..

We should all look so good in our "old" age. I think that you must have a portrait hidden away somewhere that is aging for you.

Sounds like you had one terrific birthday. What a beautiful family you are. My brother and I are September babies, too (10th and 15th). Oh, but these B-days seem to come around often, don't they?

Happy belated birthday, Angela.
I celebrated my 55th this summer. I also got my master's degree - at my ripe old age!!

You do not have to publish this if you don't want this type of matter on your site. However, I just learned that my 27 year old son has been doing drugs (coke) for several years. His life is a mess right now - jobless, lying, stealing from us. I'm searching for what to do, as far as rehab.facilities.

Would anyone out there have advice-perhaps their own experiences or those of friends that could enlighten me a little? Does anyone know of a good rehab facility?

Thanks so much.

Hi Angela,

I am a teacher in Los Angeles and was doing a search on the former Von Trapp children and found your site! Since I'm at a performing arts magnet school, I wanted to teach the children "Do Re Mi" and "So Long, Farewell" and do a little choreographed rendition of it!

Anyway, Happy (belated) birthday to you! You look wonderful!You have such a handsome family...

By the way, I have the Canon SD550 and I love it too! Canons make such great and easy-to-use cameras!


Happy belated birthday!

Congraduations, you made to fif...oops, I mean thirty nine! You look better than some at thirty or younger. What's important, however, is feeling good and staying happy as much as possible even if the world is full of lunatics.

Somewhere on the other side of the world.

Your kids are so good looking however I dont think they look like you. Jesse has your colouring but still doesnt look like you. Doesnt matter they are gorgeus!!

happy belated bday angela!!

Your kids dont resemble you except for jesse's colouring which he got from you. I think they more resemble your husband.

They are so good looking!!
