Last night the kids got together and threw a family surprise party for my Mom - she had NO idea, thanks to the clever tactics of my Dad. We all gathered at Marty and Jessica's, set out the cake and presents, taped up many crepe paper streamers and waited in the darkness for the Birthday girl to arrive. Just look at that spread! Mmm, thanks Jess, it was all so delish. You may notice the paper "mummy" lamp - that was from Marty and Jess in hopes that my Mom can turn it into a mummy for Halloween! (See? Always thinking of the spookiness, always planning ahead). As soon as we said "Surprise!" and began to sing Happy Birthday, my sweet Mom got a wee bit teary and she took the moment in.
"Happy Birthday to you..."

I. Love. My. Mom. I've been sitting here for 5 minutes trying to put into words how amazing she is, and I'm at a loss! Everyone who meets my Mom instantly falls in love with her. She truly is one of the most incredible people in my life - she is wise and brilliant and talented. She has taught me SO many things, one of them being that I know Albertsons like the back of my hand. She is artistic, loving and the heart of our family. To my sweet Mama, I hope you know how much I adore and admire you - Happy Birthday!!
