Mom's Birthday

It was my mom's birthday last week. My mom has us all perfectly trained. There will be a dinner, ice cream in meringue with strawberries on top will be the dessert, attendance is mandatory and so are presents. My mom is the smartest woman I know and her policy is the older you get the more presents you should get. Oh, and you should never have to go to work on your birthday. Automatic day off. This year we ended up postponing our dinner until a week later so ensure we could add one of our favorite traditions, Mom and I am my sister shopping and lunching. This was our present. This was the wrapping, there was a watch inside. A little odd I know but when you birthday is right before Easter this is what happens.
I snuck into my mom and dad's house while they were at church and decorated for the party. I made her a vintagey one.
This was my favorite part. That is my mom when she was one. Isn't she just the cutest thing ever? I think she liked her party, I hope so because she really is the very best mother in the world!

I hope she had a great birthday. Tell her she was always my favorite Aunt. I think it was the tootsie rolls she tied into the bows on my birthday presents when I was a kid. It totally won me over. :) She's the greatest, so thoughtful and fun!
