The Birthday Season

The Birthday Season (also known as "Mom's Birthday") has finally come to an end. My mother loves to celebrate her birthday- she always has. Her birthday was March 2nd, and we got together and had supper at her house and she opened her gifts. For most people, that would be the end of the birthday celebration. Not Mom! The following weekend, we took her out to dinner at Ruth Chris's Steak House (nice restaurant, but way too over-priced for me to enjoy). OK, after 2 family get-togethers to celebrate the anniversary of her birth, you'd think that Mom would have declared her birthday complete. Not yet! She needed one more hurrah before making that declaration. As luck would have it, her sister and grand neice have birthdays on March 11th, so Mom was able to tag onto that party as well. We got together at my cousin's beautiful house in Roswell last weekend and had a full-family-birthday-blow-out! All living relatives in a 600 mile radius of Atlanta were in attendance to witness Aunt Jane turn 74, Mom turn 68 and Cat turn 21. It's been 4 days since that celebration and I haven't heard mention of any more birthday parties for Mom, so I guess it's official that her birthday season is finally over! :)

That birthday cake...it's so familiar. No, WAIT --- I remember now. I had curtains reminiscent of those colors in my bedroom in 1962! Everything old is new again!!!
