Mom, Who's Counting !!!

"Happy 90th Birthday Mom" !!!!!!!
we celebrated this special last Sunday the 14th
my Mom turned 90 years young and were were there to CELEBRATE !!!!!!!
my Mom was born and raised in Ireland...she lived and worked in England making BOMBS during WW 2...can you believe my sweet Mom worked in a bomb factory making bombs ....she met and married my Dad who was in the US Army in England in 1946...she was what was known as a war bride......

she came to this country not knowing anyone but my Dad.....how scary it was for her...but my Dads family loved her at once......she made a wonderful home for me and my 2 brothers.... my Father died when I was 14 and she raised us by herself...soon her 3 sisters and a brother followed her to California......

this is my family my 2 daughters and their husbands and my 7 grandchildren and my son and his girlfriend....it just amazes me how my little family has grown......


GG ( great grandmother & my Mom ) and my grand children....
I am so blessed to have my beautiful Mom and my wonderful family....
Have a great day,
Hugs,
Mo :-)

Wow 90. Happy Birthday to your Mom :-)She still looks beautiful and still strong for her age. Not quite what I expect in that age. Just look at your happy faces in the picture. There's so much love. :-)

Hi Mo~ ~ ~
Looks like you are getting caught up. I had to back track to catch up too. I'll bet Mika was glad to see you. My kitty first gets angry when we get home from a trip, just to let us know it was not fun for him. Then He clings to me for a few days. . .then we get back to normal.
The wedding pictures are lovely I specially like the one of you and your son and you and hubby. Great shots.

My Grandmother was from North Ireland and traveled on the War Bide Ship Henry Gibbins. She is celebrating her 95th Birthday this Tuesday May 3rd, 2016. 4 days from now! It is highly likely, knowing my granny, that she & GG spoke :) Please if anyone reads this, keep her in your prayers. She is still doing well, but each day she becomes a little more fragile. As for her mind and her whit? They have never been sharper or stronger!! I am so blessed to have her in my life and to hear the stories over and over of her trip on the Henry Gibbins. I wouldn't be half the man I am if it wasn't for her. for her 90th I surprised her with dual citizenship and irish passports that I was able to secure for me and my entire family as her Birthday Gift. Thank you for your post. I really look forward to printing it off and sharing it with her. If she remembers GG I'll definitely be back to tell you soo..
