Once upon a time there was a cute little girl named Audrey.

She had long, silky white blonde hair that always seemed to get caught in her gum.

The little girl was my best friend and at times, my only friend. Then she grew up and had her own little girl named Brittany.

3 Audrey had a baby girl

Before we knew it, Brittany grew up too.

They definitely look like mother and daughter.

Audrey also got married to a wonderful, handsome man named Terry.

Audrey looks so much like her mother who always refers to her as “my baby girl”.

Of course, like all the other women in the family, Audrey’s hands look like our hands.

She still has long hair, but now it is curly and brown. I don’t think she gets gum in it all the time anymore.

Audrey has a green thumb.

She can grow anything and her poinsettias bloom year after year. Yes, I’m jealous because I can just say, “Plant” and it will die.

Another of Audrey’s talents include cooking delicious meals.

12 Audrey is a great cook

I think part of that is because she has a sweet tooth bigger than the state of Texas.

She loves taking trips to places in the country.

Audrey has lots of talents. Do you see the wine cork wreath behind her? She made it. Actually, Audrey makes lots of things and can paint a house better than anyone I’ve ever known.

Audrey loves snow as much as I do. One flake will make her squeal with excitement.

She has a very large cat named Jasper who is bigger than my dog!

Audrey visits large sculptured critters. It doesn’t matter – Audrey loves all critters.

However, there’s no critter she’s loved more than the late great Gizmo. Audrey loved Gizzy more than she loves sweets and misses him everyday.

27 Audreys favorite critter is Gizmo

Inside, Audrey is still part little girl. That’s how I often see her because she is my little sister. So on this day, I wanted to pay tribute to her because not that many years ago Audrey was born. It was one of the most wonderful days of my life.

I thought the best way to wish you a Happy Birthday, Audrey, was to have your best friend ever to do the honors.

Happy Birthday Audrey! I love you!
