Happy 84th Birthday Mom!!

We always surprise mom with a dozen balloons to wake up to on her birthday! Today, she walked straight through them and didn't even notice!

My oldest brother Joe sent her a little stuffed puppy, which she fell in love with immediately. I think Frankie may have a little competition!

She made her wish and blew out all the candles in one breath! Yay!

And you know I can't post without a macro shot. I just love icing art. I took a class once on cake decor; and the instructor never showed up. Perhaps there lay my baking dilemma?

We are so fortunate to have mom here with us. She blesses us each and every day with her love.
