Happy Birthday to my mom!
We had a birthday party for my mom tonight. It was a lot of fun! Can't tell you how old she turned. Because I'm not sure. She's a little unsure about the year she was born! :)
I made Chicken Marsala for dinner and a little cupcake cake for her. We gave her flowers and books for her birthday. After dinner and singing and cake we played a bit of Blackjack. Because Grandma wanted to, and it was her birthday! So, we taught the 9 year old how to gamble. Funny. It was such a good time! I found that I am much like my dad, an eternal optimist. Always so sure I'm going to win. "I have a nineteen, do I want another card....sure~!!! The next card MUST be a 2!!" And tonight, I found that my dad plays the same way!
We did hear a funny story tonight about my parent's honeymoon to Jackpot years ago that pertains to gambling. I'll get around to sharing that story soon. Its a funny one! But for tonight I just want to say Happy Birthday to my Mom! We love you!
