We celebrated Mom's birthday a few days early while I was in Mesa.
Mom will be 86 on the 11th.
I made her a cake, which was harder than I thought it would be. I knew they didn't have any cake pans so I got 2 at the store when I bought the cake mix and icing and oil and eggs. Then I made the cake with Dad's help but we didn't have any mixing bowls or mixer or measuring cup. We mixed it by hand in a pot and cooked it in the oven. Then we didn't have anything to put it on. We improvised with a shelf out of the refridgerater. It wasn't pretty but we got it made.

I got her a bird feeder bell to hang outside her window.
Happy birthday Mom. You a are special to all of us and we love you!
