Today is my mom’s 65th Birthday! This post is filled with lots of pictures! I’m being nice and not posting some of the more funny pictures I have of her! I sure do wish though I had a picture of her and her cow! When she was a lot younger and was living in Osage on the farm she raised Cow’s for 4-H. She sure did love those cow’s!
My mom was born in Colorado. Moved to Iowa as a girl and grew up in Iowa. She has a sister named Cindy who they are as a different as night and day. She cared for her parents George and Florence until they passed away in 2010 and 2011. She is opinionated and it is a little scary as to how much we are a like in our personality. So, here’s a few pictures and I’ll comment on them as I go along. 🙂
Riding on her daddy’s back. She followed him every where even down the bunny trail in Greeley, CO!
Cindy and her sister waiting for the bus on the first day of school.
Her senior year of high school. She graduated from Westwood High School in Sloan, IA.
Her and Bill have been married for over 20 years and essentially a match made in heaven.
The “Look”. Bill is thinking “What Now DEAREST?!”
The girls with Grandpa/Daddy after Grandmother’s funeral. You notice my mother is the odd one out, not dressed up! She was tired and had gone back to the apartment to try to take a nap only to be drug up to take pictures! Little did she know she wouldn’t get much of a nap because her beautiful daughter would want to go to the Island and have shrimp! We drove Grandmother’s van over to the Island only to have one of the headlight’s not work! Grandmother lived on!
My mother being goofy! With her family at Lily’s birthday celebration at the zoo!
She is being crazy with the grandkids! She LOVES being crazy! 🙂 But maybe that is where I picked her the personality from! 😉
I LOVE YOU mom! She has been a strong support through out the last year. She was always there through out Timmy’s whole hospitalization’s and surgeries. I am grateful she always had an encouraging word to say or a warm blanket to through on me to know I was LOVED!
Girls being Silly!
the PINK hat! This is her trade mark! She wears it many places and because it is so crazy people remember her for it! She also has a crazy pink floppy hat that she made many moons ago and it is now worn when we play card games! Why, I don’t know! Because were goofy!
My mother loves to teach others her fine crafting skills including Lily! Here she is teaching her to knit! She LOVES to be crafty! She can whip up a blanket in less than a day! She makes quilts and she even makes blankets for the babies at Memorial in the NICU! I love that my mom is way more crafty in the area of making blankets because many time’s I’ll go to Wal-Mart buy the stuff and mail it to her to make! The latest is a quilt for Timmy! 🙂
Happy Birthday Mom! I’m lucky your my mom! While we may have our differences from time to time your still the one I call with my problems! 🙂
