Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my mom's birthday.

She and my dad came for a visit on Sunday.
We went out to lunch and had a great Strawberry Buttercream cake.


Seriously. This cake is fabulous.

The buttercream is to die for.
They even tell you to sit it out a few hours before eating it.

To let the butter soften.

Oh yeh.

My mom loves strawberries...so she loved this cake.

Mom, I pray your day is wonderful.

Just like you.

I love you.


Oh, and she is in her seventies.
I hope I look that great in twenty years.

Don't you?


Just a little something from Judy said...

What a beautiful lady! The cake is so perfectly displayed and sounds like it was scrumptious! I do wish I could give her a box of the strawberries that I posted on my blog today, for her birthday. Maybe the seventies won't be so bad after all.

I wish I had a piece of that cake today!!!!! Yes, if we both look like our mothers in the future we will be fortunate women!!!

Did you make the cake? If not did you get it someplace that is a chain....I'm asking if there is a possibility that I could get that cake!!

What an incredible blessing to have your mom still so vibrant and part of your life. She looks wonderful and I bet you'll look just as good in 20+ yrs. The cake looks so good-makes me want to go eat cake right now. We are blessed aren't we!
Hugs to you today.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your opinion (o:
That cake is so pretty. I made Mocha butter cream frosting for little brownies...had left overs and finally got RID of it because it was toooo good.
I would not have wanted to be behind that truck of tires (o:

It's such a blessing to HAVE a mom and to BE a mom.

So glad you are doubly blessed. (PLUS, you get to a grand mom. Triply blessed!)
