Happy Birthday, Mom!

April 15th:  Mom's birthday and tax day!   Of course,this year you have until April 17th to file.  Good thing, too, I just did ours on Friday!  (Do you wonder why you have until the 17th instead of the 16th?  I couldn't figure out why so I looked it up.  It just so happens that Monday is Emancipitation Day, which apparently they celebrate in Washington D.C.  I don't know about you, but that is not a holiday that we get to celebrate and take a day off around here.)

Daddy asked for a card to give Mom on the same day I got this little cutie in the mail.  I thought it must be a sign.  She's a vintage place card holder. 

She stands on a folded piece of cardboard where the name should be written.  I think she's darling!

I talked to Mom a little earlier (we'd been worried about my daughter Lauren, who lives in Wichita - lots of tornado activity there - luckily all is well).  Mom's having a nice, relaxing day for her birthday.  I'll have a little more of Mom's birthday to show you later in the week.  Can't show it now, haven't given it to her yet! 

Happy, Happy Birthday Mom!  I love you!
