Today is my sweet mom's birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM! I wish I was there to celebrate with you! But, know that I am thinking of you all day long... you were/are/and always will be THE BEST MOM EVER!!! THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO!!! I LOVE YOU!!! This is a cute picture of my mom and dad the day they got married!!! They were both raised in good old Texas! My mom and dad have 2 children, me and my brother. They have 9 grandchildren, 2 that are married... no great grandchildren YET... Here is the WHOLE group.
They live in Utah now. My mom loves it there. She is closer to the grandchildren and she loves being close to BYU, my mom and dad have really enjoyed going to Education Week there and all the other wonderful things they offer. They served in the temple there... and my mom worked in the genealogy library and my dad at the cannery. Utah has been good to them! We love having them closer to us... LOVE Texas but a LONG ways to drive, we can do Utah MUCH quicker! Mom worked and retired from Southwestern Bell where she had many dear friends! She has a sister that lives just about 15 or so miles away, they have lots of fun together! You should see them laugh! Mom and Aunt Sue!
Here we are under the big tree that they sit under often, mostly in the summer! Mom loves being outside, I called yesterday and she was out weeding... speaking of... she LOVES pansies! Mom, if I were there today I would plant you some pansies ALL over your front yard and then I would take you to Cafe Rio, oh, wait. THAT is MY favorite place, oops. I would take you to Chuck-A-Rama and then of course we would have to do a little shopping!
Happy Birthday Mom! I love you!!!
