My Mom

Today is my mothers birthday.
She looks absolutely amazing for having 9 children, 30 something grand-children and 9 great- grand-children!!!

We celebrated yesterday. John & I cooked dinner for her at her house. We made Honey Teriyaki Chicken, Maple & Cardamom sweet potatoes, asparagus, black eye peas, cucumber & tomato salad, and a plum red leaf salad.

For the birthday cake I made a healthy low fat pineapple upside down cake. I asked Flynn if the cake was good...he said, No, it's amazing! Who knew a 7 year old would like a healthy cake.

The entire cake was gone in 2 hours...Flynn and his daddy finished it off.

She is an amazing mother, grandmother and great grandma!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM!!!! I love you!
