Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday to my mom...she would have been 90 today.  She had been saying to us all year that we weren't allowed to have a big party for her birthday...she just wanted to celebrate it quietly with us...well, she's celebrating in her new home and Andy and I are celebrating this evening with cupcakes (with purple icing...mom's favorite color) and ice cream.  Happy Birthday Mom!

How sweet, cupcakes!!
90 is so impressive, I don't think we ever stop missing our loved ones, I think God made us that way, but someday we get to be reunited. Isn't that great.
