Celebrating MOM and some awards

We had such a good time celebrating Moms birthday! My mom is Beautiful ~ inside and out! She had me at a young age and we have always been soooo close! When I think of my Mom ~ I have learned Unconditional LOVE, hard work and determination and to have JOY no matter what it is your doing! During my school years when mom and I would be home cleaning house we would turn on the stereo and dance and clean and then I would hear those magic words...."LOREN MICHELLE ~ get in here right now! You know this isn't clean ~ If your going to clean something ....clean it right the first time!!!" LOL she was right! I could have done better :) and NOW I do it right the first time! Or now as an adult and I make one of those infamous calls asking "HOW do I cook this or what is the recipe for that? Or how do you always make everything look so nice" I have come to learn and appreciate all of the Love that goes into what MOM does and she gets so much of that from her mom and I get so much of that from my MOM.....I am so blessed to have a legacy of LOVE ~ unconditional LOVE! Thanks MOM! Here are a few pics

Lunch with MOM ~ from left to right...Me, Jen, MOM and her dear friend Pat

Moms cake ~ this is a recipe from my NANA! We Love this cake and it is more special knowing that Nana made this all the time

This was moms gift from all of us ~ My brother didn't get to come bc his daughter has Strep :( They were very missed!

Me and MOM ~ I am sooo blessed to have you as my Momma ~ I love you and Praise the Lord for you Love, your friendship, and encouragement. I can't even begin to thank you enough for all you do in my life

Now, here are some awards I have been blessed with and am horrible at posting them! Please forgive me my friends I do appreciate them sooo very much!

Your mom is absolutely beautiful...she looks more like a sister instead of a mother! I know you all had a wonderful time celebrating her birthday. Can't beat spending time with our moms! I, too, call my mother with cooking questions. What a blessing they are to us!

This daughter of mine makes me laugh until my stomach hurts, smile with so much joy, and brings tears to my eyes when I listen to her passionately talking about life and her beliefs. I'm a blessed Momma in more ways than I can say - thank you honey for making every day of my life so special! I love you.
