It's Her Party...Happy Birthday, Sis!
Celebrating our birthdays together is very important to the both of us. You see, our Mom was not one who made much of a big deal of birthdays as we were growing up. We were allowed ONE party with our friends during the years birth to college...ONE! We did get to choose our yearly birthday meal, however, and Mom would cook that for us as well as a baking a cake. But now that we are big girls, we want to party, party, party! We choose a theme for the gifts we give (she did gifts with a TIME theme for my past birthday, and I did her theme of SLEEPOVERS- and what might be needed for them including fancy pj's, a Dreamgirls CD, the book SLEEPING BEAUTY, a sleepover kit, etc.) We had a blast of a time, and yes, it did turn into a sleepover! Surprise!! My sis requested going to a movie before eating. We saw BECAUSE I SAID SO and it was so-so. (A note to Anne here: please let me know if I ever go too far with smothering mothering!) Dinner out at La Sorella was delicious, topped by a delectable chocolate oooh-it's- so-good birthday cakette. And singing! Here she is with all her goodies! Ain't she sumthin'? (Any readers of this blog are encouraged at this point to post a little note of birthday cheer right here on my spot...I know she reads this and would get a kick out of being remembered by those near and far!) Happy Birthday, Sis! I love you!
