My "second" baby (my first was younger brother Tim), Deborah, my youngest sibling, turned 16 today. I can't believe it! I was 12.5 when she was born and everyone thought she was MY daughter! (I guess I looked and acted older than I was, but gee whiz!) Don't tell anyone, but I started wearing fake wedding rings after she was born. I figured if people thought she was mine, they might as well think she was legitimate. Shhh....don't tell. :) LOL.
Anyway, Deb's growing up quite nicely...and I'm proud to say she takes after her big sister in a lot of ways. She's a great cook and took up cake decorating a few years ago. She loves to work with fondant (I do not!) and has made some great cakes! Here she is with her self-made birthday cake.
