You're how old?

I have a hard time remembering how old my mom is but I do recall a few years ago when she had us convinced that she was a few years younger-that is until Collin did the math.

Happy Birthday Mom!!

Heard over dinner last night at Chili's.
"I hope I look as good as you when I'm your age, Mom."
"What do you mean, I'm only 40."

Note to Self: Do not cut your own bangs, let your sister Camille who is a trained professional or even your other sister Bethany who is learning to be a professional. Thank you. :)

My Grandma (and Grandpa) were in town from California for Christmas, they left this morning. We miss them already.

Happy Birthday Mom!! Love you! :)





Of course I ordered the same burger as my brother-in-law Chris who is 6'11''. Somehow I ate the whole thing which didn't impress the 3 vegetarians in my family.
Avery had fun at the cool kid table and set the record for longest time sitting in a high chair at a restaurant-it was a proud mommy moment;)!

Dude. I wish I looked as good as your Mom does when I'm 31....which is now. She's gorgeous!

Happy Birthday to your Mom!!!! You have a beautiful family :)

When I let my daughter Syd read Collin's post on Twilight, the first thing she said when she saw your page was "They are gorgeous, they look like they could be vampires." Teenage girls and Twilight, I am pretty sure it has gone to her brain. :)

First of all, your mom looks like your older sister and second of all, you can be sure that you will look as beautiful as she is when you are her age (whatever age that is.) It's all in the jeans baby! I mean GENES! What fun!!

Oh my word your mom is gorgeous. My dear you have some really really good genes going on there. Lucky girl! The two of you look like sisters in that photo and might I add if your scrapbooking career comes to an end you should go into modeling!! OR just have your hubby perform stand up...

Happy New Year.

OMG! Your mom and grandmom are BEAUTIFUL! Aren't you glad you're following that trend? Your mom looks more like she's your older sister than being your mother. What wonderful genes! Hope you had a fabulous Christmas. Have a happy, healthy, safe, wonderful New Year! -Carol (Fairview Hts, IL)
