Happy Birthday, Mama!

Today is my Mama's 66th birthday......born January 8th, 1944.




We plan to celebrate with family this evening at Applebee's. This year she didn't request a cake, but buttermilk pie.....so I'm off to make buttermilk pie in just a few minutes! She has passed along the love for this pie to Colt also, so he will be very happy to learn this was the requested dessert for tonight!



I'm very blessed to have the Mama that I have. She poured her whole heart into raising her kids and being there for us, and I'm so glad she did. I am the person I am today because of her guidance and wisdom and pointing me in the right direction (along with daddy). She was and is a wonderful mother. I'm very thankful she is MY mother.

Seeing as I grew up singing and dancing to Elvis records (thanks to Mama too), it's appropriate that she shares a birthday with him......today is also the day Elvis Presley was born.





Another distinctive thing that happens (alot of the time) on this day is that we have snow. It's funny but in our area (south) if we have snow around here, it usually happens on or around my mom's birthday or around Joy or Colt's birthday. Today we still have snow on the ground from yesterday and it is COLD!



So to my Mama........Happy Birthday.......I love you!

Happy Birthday to your mother.

Mothers are so special to us. I am glad you get to spend time with her.

Stay warm. It was -15 here this morning with the wind chill. The temperature was 0.
