Happy Birthday Mom!

Hi, this is Tia! I snuck onto my mom's blog so that I could finish off the "Birthday Bonanza Week" with a bang, celebrating my mom's birthday! I know it is being posted a tad early, but I just couldn't help it!
Here are just a few pictures of her:
3 months old

2 years old

16 years old

courtship

marriage

now
Sorry about the "current" picture of mom handling meat...it's hard finding a picture of my mom alone, since she usually is the one taking the pictures.
Just a few reasons I love my mom:
-she is one of my best friends
-she knows how to keep a clean house
-she is witty (even tactfully throwing in an occasional swear word!)
-she is supportive of all her children, in everything they do
-she loves chocolate
-she is a great pianist
-she gives great advice (although, I sometimes hate to admit it!)
-she has a strong testimony
And there are so many more reasons why she is the best mom! Love you, and hope you have a wonderful birthday!

Happy birthday to you. I want you and Curt to both bring back feathered hair. What a great tribute from a great daughter. I'll keep praying for that kind of success.

I am totally laughing at the thought that you use an occasional swear word. I'm telling you, now that I know tha,t along with seeing you get a little emotional at church I know we can be lifelong friends! You are a great example of a Mother and member of the gospel.I am glad I know you! Happy Birthday.

Happy Late Birthday to a great sis in law! And to Tia, such a sweet daughter. Hope you can give a great big WHEW after all those birthdays! (well, then there's Thursday, then you can really relax - hopefully!) Enjoy!
