Birthday Girls


I wish I had a scanner so I could scan in photos of Mama M back in the day . . . back when we were both younger and a little less wise.

But since I don't, these photos will have to do! And since it is ALSO TINY GIRL's BIRTHDAY, she's in a few of these as well :)

this is right after Tiny Girl was born :)

Tiny Girl is about 9 months here and very interested in buttons :) Hmmm . . . maybe I need to go blonde again . . . sorry I digress .. back to the the M!

Camera Happy Mama . . .

He's lovin this . . .
M, it's a good thing you're so kind and fun to be around . . . otherwise most people would have to hate you for how darned adorable you are!! Seriously!

No comment . . . just laughing my arse off :)

(we really loved this cabinet at MckMama's)

Happy Birthday To You!
Happy Birthday To You!
Happy Birthday Mama M!
Happy Birthday To You!

(this is my gift to you--NOT singing the song but typing it instead--your ears are welcome!)

I have been Blessed to have you in my life since God quite literally threw us together! You have the gift of bringing fun and sincerity to everything you do. You seem to embody the perfect balance of a joyous person--you love life and seek fun and yet are a responsible and loving Mama with incredible patience. You taught this tightly-wound single Mom how to loosen up and enjoy life a little more in the day-to-day way back in college; and you're still teaching me life lessons now that we're (*ahem . . .barely!*) in our 30s!

I know we joke about how lucky you are to have Mr. Wonderful--and you ARE :) Or how lucky you are to have 5 healthy and adorable children--and you ARE :) But they are also SOOOOO LUCKY to have you for a Wife / Mama! And I am lucky to call you my Bestie!

Happy Birthday to the Bestest Bestie Ever!

Love you M!


  1. Thank you, for the kindness you show me everyday! (Not to mention the patience and understanding, too!!) This made me cry...in a good way, not in a chocolate covered strawberry way...


    Love ya!

  2. What a blessing to have dear friends from way back when :o) And to be able to share great times with still.

    Blessings & Aloha!
