This evening I went to the mall to pick up my grandma a birthday gift. Now this is not the kind act, hopefully anyone would buy their grandmother a birthday gift. Wait for it, wait for it…..
While I was picking up my grandma’s gift, I bought my wife a surprise also. Just something to let her know that I was thinking of her.

Today was the big birthday dinner for my mom (and my dad). My wife had prepared a wonderful meal complete with salad and bread. My part in the festivities came when it was time to sit down and eat.
I set the table and from then on was the acting waiter for the rest of the afternoon. I didn’t want my wife, my father, or definitely not my mom to get up for anything. I got refills for everyone, 2nd helpings of food, more bread, or more napkins. Whatever was needed.
After dinner I gathered up all the plates and silverware and placed them in the dishwasher. Then I proceeded to prepare everyone’s dessert. I was very happy to have the opportunity to serve my family the very cake that I baked and decorated. And from the way that everyone finished it in such a hurry, it was pretty good too.
Later that evening after presents were opened and everyone was gone, I finished up washing the pots and pans used from cooking the birthday dinner. Once the dishes were dry, I put them away in the cabinets and relaxed for the rest of the evening.
Happy Birthday Mom!!

My mother’s birthday is coming up on Monday. My wife and I are going to do something special for her. We decided to have a nice home-cooked meal for her and I wanted to especially bake her a cake. I used most of the day today cleaning the house from top to bottom and going to the store to purchase all the ingredients needed. After I had returned from the store, I put the groceries away, and began on my immediate project – baking my mom’s birthday cake. A few hours later, I had made a beautiful dark fudge chocolate cake and used creamy white vanilla icing to decorate it.
