My little sister and I loved playing with our dolls when we were girls. We knew how to feed them, burp them, and change them. We knew how to comb their hair -- we once used our play scissors to cut it too -- we were
not good at it.

So you can imagine how thrilled we were when a real live dolly came home with Mom from the hospital one wintery day. Just days before Christmas. I was six and my little sister was three. L'il Sis reminds me we were staying at Grandma's and we saw Mommy coming to the door holding this big bundle of blankets in her arms.
This new dolly could blink; she could cry and she wet her pants too -- who could ask for anything more! Before long, she could sit and pose with us just like our dolls (I'm the one in the mosaic with the silly hat on). We loved being big sisters to our little sister. She was as cute as we were and such a sweetie pie too -- she still is even though she's all grown up now with adult kids of her own.
Today it's her birthday and we're celebrating Janet's life with BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY WISHES! She was a pretty special gift to our family that Christmas long ago, and we are very grateful for her presence in our lives today. Happy Birthday, dear Janny!
Wishing everyone a beautiful day, whether it's a birthday or an unbirthday,
