Happy Birthday Mom!
Meet my mom in her formative years (the tender age of three). Cute isn't she?
Why what's this? Mom having fun? Yes, I think it is! Mom, Christy, and Teresa hanging out in D. C. having a little "treat" (ok, we all know the chocolate fudge is good, yum).
Oh, and Mom, she's a pretty bright bulb too. She wins awards like there won't be any left tomorrow (and at the rate she's going, there might not!).
I know, I know, I don't look much like Mom, that lovely young lady to her left certainly does (hi Cami!), however, her Mom, niece, and Sis-in-law are sitting in the front row (from your left to right). We're like one big extended family and when we have a party, we do it up right. :) The girls know how to whoop-it-up. hee hee
Yeah, so I don't look entirely enthusiatic in this picture (May 2006), but in my defense I was tired, cold, and my feet were aching. Mom was very proud of me though. Just three months after this picture she finished her doctoral degree and walked the same stage at Purdue for the third time. She keeps joking about making me call her "Dr. Mom." Yeah, it's not so funny to me.
Needless to say, I love my mom. She's supportive, she's fun, she has treated me like an equal since I was about 10 years old, and she has been more like a friend in the last few years. I know if her Mom were alive we would all be having a blast for Mom's birthday. Since she isn't here, I'm hoping you'll all leave my mom BIG birthday wishes instead. :)
Happy Birthday Mom! (I hope you don't mind that I shared your pictures.)
