Happy Birthday


And another Happy Birthday...this time to my mother. 72 years old. She happened to be at my house on her birthday. Unfortunately no one but John and I were home when we brought out her "store-bought" (I didn't have time to bake and I am sure she will trash me later for that) cake. I took her picture w/the cake. Then John decided to get in the picture so she wouldn't look like it was just her and the cake having a lonely little party. (Although that sounds good to me.)



Here are some pics from her modeling portfolio. All that ended when she traded it in for 7 kids. What was she thinking?

Incredible photos. Seven kids? Wow.

I hope she doesn't trash you for it. That was a nice thing to do--home made or store bought.

Glenda- You can see that it is true for my sister Carla but I have had WAY to much sun and blew it. I wear my sunscreen and hat now but the damage is done. And let that be a lesson to any young people reading this.
Carla- I hope you have a set of those shots in better shape then mine.

Thank you everyone for the kind words and bday wishes.

I am sure she regrets giving up a modeling career to wind up with the likes of Carla. Carla regreted giving up her modeling career to start school. I mean come on he started school at age 5 and you have to be under a size 6 to be a model and by the age of 5 she was, well....

Your mom does look just like a model, very pretty just like.......
the other Della Torre girls???
