After dinner we came back to my house so I could give Mom her birthday present. She had been wanting rocking chairs for her front porch and I found 2 jumbo rockers at a local Thrift store. We decided to paint them black to match the shutters. Mom loves them and I'm so glad she does. They're still sitting in my dining room now after receiving the last coat of paint on Sunday. We're letting the paint cure for a week before we attempt to move them. I can't wait to get my dining room back to normal!
Monday on Mom's actual birthday I showed up with Birthday Cookies Part II. I had found a recipe for cookies similar to Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies and I couldn't resist. These were so good! I can't seem to get the site with the recipe to open right now so I'll post that later. Again, these weren't the prettiest cookies, but very tasty.
My mom's birthday is the start of the birthday season in my little family. Things are just going to get crazier and busier from now until the end of the year. I seem to remember a time when it took FOREVER for my birthday or Christmas to roll around. Now they seem to show up pretty quickly and always leave me wanting to scream, "Wait, I need more time!!!" I guess it doesn't help that my birthday, wedding anniversary, and Thanksgiving are within two weeks of eachother. What was I thinking?!
Tomorrow is my Aunt Ranette's birthday. She too is a beautiful, kind, thoughtful, caring, and generally all-around wonderful lady. Aunt Ranette I hope you have a great birthday and wish we could be there to help you celebrate.
And Many More ...
