This past weekend we made a last minute trip to California to surprise my mom for her birthday. We called her on Friday morning to wish her a happy birthday and she told us that all she wanted for her birthday was to see us. Little did she know we were on our way to her house. So needless to say she was so shocked to see us walk into her house. Kylie walked in with a big balloon and flowers and said "Happy Birthday Grams". She did a double take because she thought she was seeing things. My mom is an amazing person. She has a heart the size of the universe and would do anything for anybody. She has always been there for me when ever I needed her and even when I didn't she is still always there(you know... just in case... as she likes to put it). She has always been very strict with her kids and always wanted the best for us. My mom is the kinda mom that tells you exactly like it is and if you don't like it well that is just to bad. She turned the beautiful age of 66 this year. She would probably kill me for telling the whole world that, but I think she looks great. She has made me the woman that I am today. I hope that I am making her proud. I appreciate her more today than I ever have. I love you mom!!!!
