Happy Mother's Day!

My mother has been going through her cedar chest this last week or so, where she keeps all of her old photographs, trinkets, & memories. When I went over there the other day, she had a packet made up for me and for my brothers. She said it was time we all had our own stuff to take care of.

When I got home, I started going through the packet. My baby book was in there, although there's not much inside (I was the last of 5 and God knows she didn't have time, right?).

Then there's the elementary school pictures...what a crack up!

There were pictures of my kids, family friends, and a little chicken! Who's chicken is that!?! We didn't have a chicken!

It's cute though.

Okay, I had to blow up the letter that the alleged chicken is standing on and found out it is a baby quail. What do I know about chickens! Ha!

Interesting that there was also a Mother's Day card that I had made for her when I was in elementary school.

It's so old, I'm surprised it has any petals or leaves left!

I have no idea what direction we were given by the teacher about what to write, but I did manage to fill up the whole page! On the back, on the bottom, I even wrote "forget me not". I must have seen that somewhere.

But the sentiment of the card was quite true. See for yourself.

I always said she was pretty enough to be a movie star.

She has been a great Mom, and a great friend to me.

Mom & I are going shopping today, then back to my house for a lunch of Ham, Asparagus, & cheese crepes!

I hope all you Moms have a wonderful day!
