My mom's 55th birthday was on Monday and times being what they are we didn't have the extra money to spend. My mom means a lot to me and I really wanted to give her something special and wonderful and 100% free. Not many things fit that catergory. The one thing I could think of was a picture of my kids. She loves them and they her. I am really not a good photographer and I don't have a great camera, but I really did do my best. I turned our coffee table on it's side in front of the sliding glass door and threw a lavender sheet over it and plopped the kids down in front of it. The dog wanted to be in the picture, and the kids wanted him too, so, he was. Peyton on the other hand did not. I had my sister giving her pieces of ice and candy (she loves ice and of course candy too) just to get her to at least stay there, forget the smile, I dont even care. There were a few decent pictures, mostly because I emphasized how important it was to me and if they loved Nana Paula they would just smile and do what I asked of them. It worked well enough, I did some tweaking in photoshop to help it a little and it looked very cute in a silver frame that my mom had. I also cooked dinner for the family at my parents and everyone said it was good, I hope so! I have a great mom and I'm glad she is such a part of my families life.
I LOVE YOU MOM, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!
