Birthday wishes for mom

Today is my lovely wife's birthday.  I won't mention her age, but I will say that for nine days she and I are the same age.  And I'm old.  (Unlike me, though, she doesn't look like it.)

This morning, even before I left for work, Q poked out of her room and came into ours.  She said that she got up early because she didn't want to miss mom's birthday.  The Boy made my wife a huge picture he had made weeks ago and (later) a fan that he decorated with drawings of cakes, candles, and presents.  Q had made several 'Q's on her fan, along with two faces close together — one for her and one for mom.

We didn't do anything fancy today to celebrate her big day, mainly because we leave for California tomorrow for an extended stay.  One of these days, we're going to have to start making her a fancy birthday cake.  I'm open to suggestions for a theme.

Happy birthday to your wife!

Have fun in California! We have great memories of our trip to California over 4 years ago. We rented a car and in about two weeks we drove from San Francisco to San Diego, staying in the cutest hotels and B&B's.
