Mom's 50th Birthday

Mom celebrated her 50th Birthday on Thursday, unfortunately she had to work that day and so only in the evening could we head to Olive Garden for a nice family dinner. MaryJo took her to breakfast on Wednesday morning and made her chicken salad complete with croissant rolls and Nicole made her a home-made cheesecake with fresh raspberries.

I took Mom out to get her first pedicure ever! The only reason she agreed was because we went to a patient of Dad's and so Mom decided that she could maybe handle Tuyen Kim touching her feet. Well she claims that she liked it and admits that they are not as terrible as she thought they would be. Below are pictures of mom's and mine pedicure.

Grandma Banks had a dozen pink roses delivered to the house, and it was such a special suprise for Mom to get on Friday.

Dad got mom a printer/copier/fax machine, and I am also grateful because now she doesn't have to rely on mine. I didn't take a picture of that, but it is nice, it is a wireless printer - Dad wouldn't help try and figure out the "wireless" portion of it so as of right now that feature is not working.

It looks like it was a fun time! I miss getting to be a part of the celebrations the most, and not having you guys for ours. I hope you figure the printer out, that's not something easy to explain over the phone.

I'm blog-hopping around family and found yours. We've never met, but your mom is my cousin; my mom is her Aunt Barbara. Anyway, I loved your pedicure treat! My mom wouldn't go for YEARS because she hates people touching her feet. About a year ago her nail guy finally convinced her to go and now she loves them from Henry. So fun to see our moms growing up a little bit. :) Good luck with studying and job-seraching!
