This past weekend was my mom's birthday and I had a special dinner planned for her. I was wearing one of my favorite aprons as I prepared the meal. I had picked out the perfect apron to accessorize my outfit. If any of you love wearing aprons, you will know exactly what I am talking about. It just can't be any apron from your collection, it has to be an apron that coordinates with your outfit. So I found the perfect one...The black apron with large coral and pink flowers! Just before the guests were about to arrive both my sons said to me,"You're NOT going to keep that apron on, are you?" They already knew what my answer would be, because they always ask me this. "Yes, I am going to wear it", I replied. They both laughed at me and walked away. Minutes later, my mom arrived and I heard them both come bolting out of the laundry room laughing and wearing two of my aprons. They even had the matching dish gloves on! My oldest was wearing my apron from Apronology.
Here they are with my mom. We all had a big laugh. I couldn't miss the opportunity to take a few photos. When they saw the camera come out, they both said, "Oh know, she's going to put this on her blog. Don't smile when she takes the photo!" You better believe I was going to post it, so here it is. It was my mom's 69th birthday. Doesn't she look great! Here's a photo of all us kids with my mom. She was 26 in this photo. I can't imagine being 26 with four children. I didn't have my first son until I was 30. My mom has been such a blessing in my life. We had a wonderful evening celebrating her birthday. And I left my apron on ALL night! A birthday is just the first day of another 365-day journey around the sun.
