Happy Birthday to You, Mom

This past Sunday was a special birthday for my mother.  We celebrated it kind of low-key, because she wanted it that way.  We had a fantastic dinner at Chateau, which is a funny French name for an Italian restaurant.  Then we were off to my house for gifts and chocolate caramel cannoli cake!

Will was kind of bummed that he didn't have a present for his Nana.  He insisted on picking out one of his toys and wrapping it up for her.  I talked him out of wrapping up his buddy Buzz Lightyear, so he chose a purple stegasaurus instead.

Speaking of purple, that appeared to be the theme.  Above, she's wearing a silk and bamboo lace scarf that I knitted.  The yarn is so soft, and reminds me of a grape jolly rancher.

Happy Birthday and Many More, Mom!
