There was an old woman
who lived in a shoe,
She had so many children
she didn't know what to do;
She gave them some broth
without any bread;
She whipped them all soundly
and put them to bed. "
There were twenty-three family members gathered at Mom's to celebrate her 90th birthday. She is doing really well and it was a great ice cream and cake party for her.
A sister from Lubbock had a friend make a beautiful (entirely appropriate) cake for her. It was the old woman in the shoe, who had so many children she didn't know what to do! Well, Mom always knew what to do!!
The shoe had a tree beside it with four little faces in it, representing my four brothers, Joe, Harold, Robert and Tom. It also had a door and windows with nine faces in them, representing me, my six sisters, June, Marg, Kathy, Faith (RIP), Barbara and Teresa. One face was another sister, Patsy (RIP),who passed away at an early age. Mom was the face peeking out the door!
We thank God for this wonderful Mom who has always watched over us all these years! We love her.
