I know I am a day early on all of the birthday posts but I figure I better do them while I am thinking about them verses forgetting them and doing them three days late.
Mom celebrates her birthday tomorrow.
She is still in El Salvador right now.
In the above slide she is celebrating her 30th birthday and the year was 1978.
That is her Mother sitting next to her, my Grandma White.
I think my Aunt Carol made this very special cake for her.
It is a classic "Over the Hill" cake but with a twist.
It was made completely of foam.
Mom tried and tried to cut the cake but could not.
The cake would mash down and then it would spring back up.
"Come on old lady!" "Are you to old to even cut a cake?" were remarks that could be heard from shouted from loving family members.
I thought it was great.
I also thought this was one of my Aunts best cakes, pure icing!
All us kids licked it clean that afternoon.
Here is Mom on her first birthday.
She has the lamb cake that our family traditionally has to celebrate the first year of life.
Chad's birthday is today and he and his wife, Cathy, stopped by to say hello.
