Wednesdays With My Mom

Isn't this an adorable photo of my mom and her friend? Mom told me that her friend's name is Evelyn...AND she told me the last name, but I've already forgotten. I'm not sure who needs to be in assisted living, her or me?????
Okay, Monday was my mother's 88th birthday. So I'm reporting on that instead of the boring stuff we did Wednesday (like go in for the annual TB test, lots of laundry, and grocery shopping). My sweet older daughter had the the three grand babies (plus cute little D. , her friend's daughter) make cupcakes for GG during the day. And then later on we took them over.

Here's the candlesticks I got my mom for her birthday. When we were at Costco a few weeks ago, she just fell in love with these. However, she is forever the penny-pincher, so I was thrilled that her birthday was around the corner and that I had a 'sure bet' gift for her.



Happy Birthday sweet Mom! : ) And thank you for heading up the 'cupcake patrol', Emily!

I think I've told you before, your mom has the best legs on the planet. Love those pictures of when she was young. She's still so beautiful. Wish her a belated happy birthday and give her a big hug from me. Mimi

Oh, she's so cute! I bet she just looooved having the cupcakes from the kids. And those candlesticks are perfect for her. They'll go beautifully with the rest of her furniture, which I've always loved!

Your mom was a real looker! Love the clothes, love the high heels (wish they were fully in the pic, but I can tell they are high and sassy) and love the sassiness. Happy b-day to your mom.
