My mom's birthday was near the end of January so I went home for an overnight visit. And what a lovely visit it was.
The pretty birthday girl.
What do you get for the woman who has everything? How about some love on a string?
Wrapped in a lovely brown paper bag.
Now tell me apples don't fall far from the tree.
The artist at work.
And what's a trip home without a game of Scrabble?
Guess who won?
And not just won... but completely trampled the competition. (Which is why I don't mind the gloating!).
I wish I could get home to visit more often!
(All these photos were hand-held... no tripod means high ISO which translates into g.r.a.i.n.y. Now I know!).
