Happy Birthday to Me!

30 years ago the most wonderful woman in the world gave birth to me!  Below is her birthday present to me.  Enjoy!

video

Yes, that is my mother singing in the video.  Now you know where I get my love for karaoke. Okay, you can stop laughing now at all of my different hairstyles and creative Halloween costumes.  I think my mother made almost every Halloween costume I ever had.  She's just creative that way.  Thanks for the trip down memory lane and giving me such a wonderful birthday present Mom!

OMG! Can I borrow your mom?!? She's the most awesomest person ever!?!?! No offense to my mom--but really. I loved the slideshow & the singing. Happy Birthday! (I did not know we are the same age) Well, I turned 30 in October, but you just look way younger than my old haggard self.

What an amazing gift!! How cool that your mom made all of those outfits!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY GIRL!!!

Oh my gosh...that is the best thing I've seen in blogland!! I can just tell by the pictures that you were sooooo loved!!!! And it's also obvious by the way she did the slideshow and singing for you!!!

YOU ARE BLESSED!!!!!!!!!!

Your mom is fabulous! I couldn't hear it (i'm at school w/ no volume) but the pictures were so neat to see - loving your clown costume. :)

I realize that I am late, but I sure am glad that I swung by your site today. Not only did I get to see your fun and fabulous BlogRollers video, but I also absolutely adored the video from your Mom.

My favorite photos:

1) The bathtub
2) Halloween costumes
3) Your wedding day...at least I think it was your wedding day.

Hope you had a fantastic day, my friend. Such a wonderful gift from your Mom!
