I love this picture because it just shows exactly what having my mom around is like. She is full of energy, and fun and lots of love.
We were so excited to celebrate her birthday while she was here (I don't think I have been around to do that since high school) and I tried to spoil her but she fought it pretty hard. I did at least make half of her delicious vanilla butter cream and coconut covered cake filled with raspberries. Happy Birthday Mom!
We also did lots of visiting, shopping, sewing, playing games and, in general, enjoying being together. Ian cried himself to sleep last night asking why Grandma had to leave.
The best part was watching her enjoy the kids and spend time with them. They love her.
