Princess for a Day...

Sunday was my Mom's birthday and we took the opportunity to spoil her, celebrate her and shower her with gifts. It's certainly a far cry from her everyday life! *Dripping with sarcasm*

We had a good time together and in all seriousness, I count my blessings everyday that I get to celebrate my mom. I praise God that she is healthy and happy and celebrating 51! She decided that since we have virtually been eating since Thanksgiving she didn't want to go out to eat for her birthday. We made spaghetti, got an AMAZING red velvet cheesecake from the Cheesecake Factory and had a fun dinner at home. Here are a few party pics...

Happy birthday to you, happy birthday to you...

Happy birthday dear mo-om, happy birthday to YOU! And many more...

I'm not even joking you guys...this thing is called "Stephanie's red velvet cheesecake" from the Cheesecake Factory and it's pretty much the best thing I've ever put in my mouth!

Miss Maggie loves a good party. Some might call her a "party girl"!

Eye on the prize son. He knows the goods when he sees it! If you only knew how funny this picture really is! This whole situation makes me laugh. My Papa is NOT a dog person. To think Rookie got this close to him while he's EATING...Ha! Look how far my Papa is scooching over in his chair! My mom scolded me for taking a picture instead of shooing Rookie down.

Gotta love birthdays!! Guess whose is next?? :)
