Tribute to Mom

At the request of one of our readers, I have posted pictures of my beautiful mother. Below is the picture of my Mom in her black velvet dress that she wore to (I thought the Phantom of the Opera) Swan Lake. I think she had just had her sixth child when this photo was taken.
And the picture below is at my Aunt's wedding. Notice my Mom's amazing long hair! She had just had her 8th child when this photo was taken.
And lastly - here is a photo of her when she was expecting her fourth. Missi is the little girl on Mom's lap, and I'm the chubby girl on Mom's left. How young she looked for having so many children already!
Hope all of you mothers out there had a wonderful Mother's Day!
