Happy Birthday!

…to my mom, who celebrates her big SEVEN-FIVE today! Since our family won’t be getting together until October for the party, I’m sharing our group photo from her 65th back in 2003.

(left to right) – Lydia, Steve, Sara, me, Andrew, Marc, PJ, Polly (the birthday girl), Roy, Paula, Karen, Ron, Jillian, Katie
and Wow, ten years makes quite a difference with all the grandkids*! Here they are last Christmas.

They have now all graduated high school and the two youngest have/will be starting college this month. (not to mention that the oldest is now married!)
Happy Birthday, Mother! Best wishes on your BIG day –  we are all very much looking forward to celebrating with you … soon!  xo – M.

*ahem, ten years also makes a big difference for the rest of us…honestly, I think we’re doing great, but I don’t have another group photo to prove my point!
