This post will be short but sweet. We are here today to say Happy Birthday to our mom. This is the first time we have ever surprised her for her birthday. She thinks it is rather conceited to have a birthday post for herself. She has reported on her birthday after the fact a couple of times., and we know she will do that again this year. But in the meantime.



We know this is one of her very favorite photos so wanted to share it with you. It was not taken on one of her birthdays. It is from January 1952 (two months before her third birthday). She is sitting in her Grandpa Herman’s lap.

Mom has shared with us how she dearly loved her grandparents and how good they were to her. She spent lots and lots of time with them when she was growing up. She believes those times were the very best of her childhood.

We are hoping that she thinks the years with us (and our dad) are the best of her adult life.

Please join us in sending our mom best wishes on her birthday. Lisbeth has even agreed to share her tiara.

We love you Mom, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth and Calista Jo
