Dear Daughter Laura,
Tonight on your birthday eve, I dusted off the counted cross stitch birth sampler and remembered the gift of your arrival in Germany.
Maura says you’re not just an amazing aunt, but you’re an amazing mother. I agree.
Happy Birthday to you.
Ma (and Maura, who is visiting)
Maura has two of her parents old stuffed animals. The sock monkey, in need of repair, I sewed for Mark in 1976 and the brown teddy bear is Erika’s childhood bear. It’s hard to throw away things with a face. They are definitely loved and cared for by their daughter now.
Do you have any old stuffed animals in your house?

Happy Happy Birthday to you Laura.
You make life nice.
P.S. Refer to last year’s birthday post to see how time flies.
(It’s something old people say to younger people and then suddenly you experience it.)
Happy Fourth Anniversary to Laura and James.

You may have seen the wedding photos after the wedding on November 12, 2011 but Mother of the Bride can’t be the photographer, too.
The blog is back in real time today. No flashbacks, no reblogs from six years ago.
Penny, the Golden Doodle, looks at the baby Charles and remembers when she was the center of attention.
Perhaps I should have made this a wordless Wednesday or a
