Tiffeni’s Birthday . . .

Yesterday was our lovely daughter, Tiffeni’s, birthday. She is her father’s, mine and her brother’s dear heart. She is the epitome of originality. Her creativity, inventiveness, imagination, ingenuity, is a testament to her uniqueness. Ever since she was a tot, she would pursue and strive for goals of which many she accomplished. 

When creating our Family Museum, she was very instrumental in its conception. With all the things that Tiffeni wanted displayed, it was difficult to narrow the items down, but in doing so, told very succinct stories of her life . . . so far. From babyhood, to childhood, to pre-teen, high school, college and developing careers, her keepsakes tell of her experiences, endeavors, interests and eventual direction her life is taking. That is why it is so important for a child to see the physical attributes of their efforts, attempts, strivings & struggles, instead of compilation’s compartmentalized on a computer disc, family photo album, or put away in all those boxes stored away for some future time that may not relate to their current life. And that is why it is so important for your child or children to have their precious things in a Family Museum or a museum of their own.
Here are a few images of Tiffeni's contribution's to Our Family Museum.

Childhood toys & pictures. Her generation was the first to garner lessons from watching Sesame Street. Tiffeni loved Little House on the Prairie.
We even took a trip to Walnut Grove where she gleefully
dipped her feet into Plum Creek.

Tiffeni proudly wore her denim jacket 
with many buttons & pins she collected
over the years.
Tiffeni’s first job was working as a Visitor’s Aid at the Colonial Williamsburg Living Museum. Over the years she has collected some wonderful colonial keepsakes. Tiffeni even appeared on the cover of a book about colonial fashion.

And today, she is a pedagogue, promoting the educational theory first pioneered by the Father of Kindergarten, Friedrich Froebel. Visit her Facebook page to find out more.
