Today would have been my mom's 70th birthday.
That is me up on that pony. Is that Gail leaning over? I find it hard to believe that she would get that close to a horse's mouth.
She always made really interesting party hats. I like these a lot. They're totally charming.
I like this progression.
Somewhat like my niece and nephews here...
this one is one of my favorites, because my mom's face--that was her cranky face when she was all grown up, too.

My mom's last Easter. I'm leaning over her because we didn't put her wig on--so I just covered her head with my hair--goodness knows I had plent of it. Gail bought me that dress. A lot of people came over that Easter, which was unusual for us, but a nice day.
So that's it. Happy would've-been Birthday to my Mom. We miss her. We all miss her. I wish she could have met all our babies--in the family and out of the family (there's a LOT of babies around--and getting grown-up kids now, too)!
