Happy Birthday Mom!!

We spent a fun night in KC's Power and Light area last night celebrating my mom's birthday. We got there early enough to hang outside for a while, go to McFadden's, and then eat at Tengo sed Cantina. It was soooo good! Their chips and salsa were definitely better than most places. My mom's birthday is today, and her good friend Marcia's birthday was just yesterday, so we've been able to celebrate them together many times! This time, all of the kids and our boys were able to go, and it was a great night out. We haven't all been together in quite a quile (besides our wedding, but not much time to talk there!) and it was so fun to laugh at some of the stories from growing up on the same street.
She and I are going to celebrate our birthdays together this summer when we go visit her high school friend in Florida! This will be our third trip and we always have so much fun.

I won't tell you how old she is, and you can't spin the picture far enough to read the button that is on her necklace:) She definitely doesn't look her age!!

Happy Birthday Mom--hope it's a great day!! Love you!

I had to include this picture--it's one of my recent favorites! When Norris and I first got engaged, my mom pulled her dress out of storage just to look at and play with...and she definitely still fit in it! The hat is our favorite part:)

And my dad will be celebrating the same monumental birthday later this year..better start planning! :)
