Happy Birthday, Mom!

Mom's 81st

My mother, Jean Krause of Auburn, CA celebrated her 81st birthday on August 15th and she was so happy that her husband, children and grand-children were all there to celebrate with her, as well as several of their spouses and significant others.

Mom and Flowers

My sister Karla brought these beautiful flowers,

Beehive Cake

and when I saw this amazing Beehive cake at the bakery, I couldn’t resist bringing it along as the celebratory dessert!

Mom 81st Card

And if you’re like me, what would a birthday be without a handstamped card? Here is the one I made for my mother; inside the stamped sentiment states: A little bird told me that it was your birthday.

Karla's Cards

These lovely pen and ink drawing cards were made for our mother by Karla.

Our mom had a wonderful day; nothing elaborate or expensive; just some handcrafted gifts, flowers, candy and a cake. But the best present of all was the gift of being surrounded by family on her special day!

    Oh, thank you, Anaum! The older we get, the more we know what’s really important in life.
