Note From Davy: Kelly Jo and I want to wish a very happy birthday to our beautiful and lovely daughter Odie. Happy, Happy Birthday! We love you much and we are thankful God placed you in our lives. We are blessed, but sorry about your luck!
This is Odie reporting in from Odie reporting from Oklahoma. We are thrilled to be part of the fellowship meeting at Bethany Holiness Church again this year! It is a joy to be with Pastor Toliver and the wonderful congregation of Bethany.
We have three more stops before we leave this state. It is so good to be back in the Tulsa area again. I am excited about seeing many friends during our time here. Remember to check our schedule page to see where we will be in the future. It is the third tab at the top of the page, or click here. Come be in a service with us!
Today is Mom's parents, Danny and Betty Morgan, anniversary. Happy 56 anniversary, Gran and Papaw! We love you both so much! I wish you were in Oklahoma with us today to celebrate. It was good to see you for a little while last weekend.
Today is also my birthday. I am thankful for another year! God has blessed me beyond measure in my 38 years of life! I have so much to thank God for! My heart is full of gratitude!
I know 8 friends across the country who have a birthday today. They are from Florida to California and several states in between. Happy birthday to each of my birthday buddies! October 14th is a great day for a birthday!
Click here to see a post from a couple years ago. Each year, I like to look back and remember a little about my birthdays. In the future, I will have to update and repost my birthday memories again. That particular post stopped at year 36.
Last year, for number 37, we were back here at Bethany's meeting. My friends made me feel so loved! I have now spent four of my birthdays here.
My Mamaw, Martha Boggs, brought a bin to my house last year. She had saved some items from my younger days. I love baby clothes, but knowing these were mine is extra cool. I took pictures of some of the things to share with you.
The first set I wore going home from the hospital at 27 days old and to my first church service the following Sunday! I remember seeing photos marking both of those momentous occasions. Everything was so tiny. I was a preemie baby.
This is another one of my cute baby outfits.
Mamaw said this was one of my Christmas dresses.
A bib from my childhood. If you are new to the blog, my name is Andrea. I go by my nickname, Odie.
This is a very special dress. I remember this one. It is a size 4T. I believe this was a gift from Papaw Bill and Mamaw Darien Houston. There was a store here in Oklahoma that sold Bryan dresses. I had several dresses from that store. I loved all of them! Most of them came from Papaw Bill and Mamaw Darien.
Thanks for joining me today. I hope you enjoyed a look back at some of the things from my childhood archives. See you next week.
