Happy Birthday Mom!

 I'd like to take some time to wish my Mother a very happy birthday. She always does so much for us on our birthdays *and every day for that matter...* I am in a mushy nostalgic mood (what else is new...) and I was looking back at pictures & wanted to share some. Mom is a creative amazing person with a gigantic heart.
one of my favorites of her. She used to dance!
she made that dress. She taught me how to sew and gave me many creative passions.

we had matching dresses on many occasions

She has always embraced our "crazy" and encouraged our individuality... even when she didn't totally agree... haha How many Moms encouraged their kids to paint murals throughout the house? :)

or when she's right there with us being silly :)
She always made our Halloween costumes - and I feel it's important to carry on that tradition
she writes on things like produce as notes to us :)

takes us to Beatles conventions!

and we indulge her "crazy" need to have a Santa picture in NYC Macy's every year - even though we are OLD! :p
she makes sure that her grandchildren can follow their passions as well

 She is a fantastic Grandma - in fact, the spoils my kid ROTTEN... haha but it's all out of love. Seriously, look how she glows in the pictures with the kiddos. Wow :)

I love my mom. No matter what we go through... no matter how much we disagree/argue... I know in the end, she'll always be there for me. (We DO tend to be on the same page about stuff these days though) :)

So here's to you, Mom! "Hippo Birdies" to you and many many many more!

                                                                      We love you!
