My Beautiful Mother

My beautiful mother today
My glowing mom

And from years past
Backyard Picnic - 1978

We honored her by gathering around the table in my parent's backyard on such a lovely spring Mother's day

A place where many family gatherings have been held over the years.

Me and my mom on Mother's Day 2012
We wrote of our love for our mother/grandma and pasted our favorite pictures of our lives growing up.

Karen and Martha did a beautiful job...

Our lives together...sewing and ironing

We topped off our celebration with homemade strawberry shortcake..yumola.
Our dessert...love strawberry shortcake

I love my mother.

I wonder who the second shadow is in the 1962 picture. I figure dad is taking the picture, but everyone else is accounted for...(except me...I am not born yet :-))

It is mom...the woman in the picture on the far right is Grandma Price

Of course! I took a second look at the curly hair and the dress and could see it's Grandma Price. Thanks.
