Your Mom is the real deal!! She has always been so warm and inviting! When we showed up at her door, it didnt matter to her that you werent with us (or so she thought)! She invited us in... But I sure wish I had a camera to show a picture of her face when you appeared! That was priceless! You are a GREAT mom in all that you do!
