Amber Lynn - Through The Years

Amber was born 24 years ago today - one of the most exciting and special days in our family's lives.

Here is Amber, pictorially, through the years.


 
 


 

 






It was at this point where things really began to change with Amber.  All of a sudden she went from being our little granddaughter to being our grown-up granddaughter with a brand new life of her own.

And things continued to change quite quickly after that.

 

But some things never change.  For example, we should have known that she'd always love animals.
 

And that she'd always be a performer and enjoy a little attention.

And that she'd always want to be part of a large family because she truly loves her mom and stepdad.



And her mom and siblings



And her mom and all her aunts.


And her uncles.


Oh, and did I mention her mom?  Yeah, she might be a bit of a Momma's girl.

Amber also enjoys.....hats.....of all kinds.






I had to throw in a few of her 'hat' pictures, not because they're her most beautiful pictures, but because they show what a fun, happy, quirky girl she is.

Amber's always smiling and always a wonderful person to be around.  She's an amazing mother, cousin, sibling, daughter, and niece but most of all, she's the granddaughter that any grandparent would be lucky to have. I thank God that he chose our family to bless with her.


So Happy Birthday, Amber.  I hope your 24th birthday is your best one yet but only half as good as the 70 or 80 to come!
