Surprise!

Yes it was Christmas. Yes it was a time to be with loved ones. And, yes it was a time to remember the real reason for the season.





But it was also time to surprise my mother with a party for her retirement!!







Ya know at some surprise parties you can just tell that the person knew all along? Or at least they figured it out at some point beforehand? Well, my brother, his wife, Razor and I managed to pull it off. She didn't have a clue.






Happy Retirement Mom!! I love you.

I LOVE the new header!

Is that a picture of your Mom? If so, did she take early retirement? There is no way she looks old enough to retire, she's beautiful!

I always enjoy your blog. Happy new year!
