Happy Birthday Mama


Mama (smiling with hands folded in front of her) and her friends wait patiently for the pictures to be taken before cutting into her cake in this picture from days past.


This is one of the original birth notices that were sent out by Mammy and Granddaddy when Mama was born. Someone scribbled on it trying to figure out Mama's age, it looks like. And there is also a grocery list in Mammy's handwriting on the back of it.

So cute. Does that say her her maiden name Brandon (as in your brother Brandon)?

Wow. Happy Bday, Brenda!

Mama said...

Yes, my maiden name is Brandon and our fourth son is named Brandon. The reason for that name is...when I was expecting our fourth child, I told my husband that this child was going to be named after both of us. If it were a girl her name would be Brandon Michelle and if it were a boy his name would be Brandon Michael. Jeffrey is the only son with his own name. The other three have a name that was once someone else's.
