The World’s Best Mom

Pin It
This has always been my favorite photo of my mom.  She looks movie star beautiful,  smart, and confident.  When I was young, I thought she could do anything.  I still do.  My mom has never been one to sit back and watch life go by.  She has always been a hard worker, but also managed to have fun no matter what her age.  This August, we will be celebrating her 90th birthday.
Mom has had many adventures, like the time she went up in a hot air balloon:
Or the time she competed in the Pillsbury Bake-Off and won $10,000 for her soup recipe:
Mom has a playful side, too.  Here she is putting a snowball down the shirt of my brother, Ken:
Or sometimes Mom just likes to relax and enjoy a California beach:
Mom likes to keep up with all the latest technology.  Here she is getting an iPad for her 89th birthday!  She loves her iPad and carries it with her everywhere.

Mom told me a story the other day I hadn’t heard before.  She said that when she was about ten years old, a little boy came up to her and said, “You are cuter than Shirley Temple!”  See Mom – we always knew you were a movie star.

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!  I love you!!!


Your one and only daughter,

    She is so wonderful! And so it’s no wonder how you and then your girls came to be the same! Happy Mother’s Day Mrs. Vanni!
