Happy Birthday, Donna Marie!

Three of four kids and still smiling
Today I want to celebrate the best mom in the whole world. When we were kids, she let us make forts out of the couch cushions, taught us all kinds of great expressions (like tick-a-lock and flour’em) and always found a place at the kitchen table for our friends. She is the kindest person alive but DO NOT do anything bad to anyone in her family or you will find yourself on the receiving end of a poison pen letter to end all poison pen letters (in perfect Palmer Penmanship, of course).

She also makes awesome cut-out cakes, is a whiz at Scrabble and up until a few years ago, was a master at standing on her head. Just don’t play Yard Darts with her. (Long story).
I love you, Mom!
