Monday night, the 14th, my Mom came over and we made cards (stamping, ribbons, coloring, etc.). We had a good time. Mom even had a birthday "highball" that I made for her! Little did she suspect that when the picture above was taken I would be making her a cocktail on the eve of her 65th birthday!!!

This is a picture of my Grandma Bates, me, and my Mom in front of my Grandma's house at 14422 Michigan Avenue, Riverdale, Illinois. This is the site of so many family memories and is where my Mom grew up. Note my very cool red purse!
My Mom made this card and I totally love it!!
Tomorrow we are off to St. Charles, Illinois to check out antique shops and a stamp shop. We will probably sneak in a bookstore stop too...and lunch!!! Perfect way to spend a birthday I say!!!!
I love you very much Mom and am so glad we get to spend your birthday together!
