Happy Brithday

One time Hillary made a banner for my birthday party that said "Happy Brithday Erica!" Nobody noticed the spelling mistake until a few weeks later when mom got some photos developed and sure enough, "brithday" in massive letters printed over two sheets of computer paper - the kind you had to tear apart and rip the edges off.

Anyway, Hill's birthday was yesterday, and mom's is tomorrow. Happy Brithday to you both!

Love, Erica

(Hillary took these photos with my camera after I accidentally forgot it in Lethbridge at Christmas - and yes, that is Value Village, and yes, mom is making coffee. We like to document the regular parts of our lives.)


  1. You have to document the regular parts of your life! It's very important! Otherwise people would think that we always lead thrilling lives all the time!

    Hey Erica thanks for the 'brithday' wishes.
    Hill and I had good b-day's. Mine had a sweet ending cause I had a nice talk with you right before bed - a great way to end a great day!
    Love you, mom

    Hey Erica,
    I am currently reading your "Currently Reading" book - A Spot of Bother. I am very much enjoying it. That Mark Haddon guy is a genius writer..... The "Curious Incident" one was also quite the read! Thanks for the suggestion - you know how I love to steal your ideas.....

    HI ERica, Just want to say hi, cause I haven't talked to you in a bit. I'm glad that most of us have regular lives with photos attached!
    love you, see you in about 1 month.
