Before I begin the personal  err…silly …err…risky…oh heck, you get the idea….before I get down to business here…with the fun part  of this article, I would like to say that if you guys don’t hear from me for a while…it is probably because she has locked me up…taken my computer away…OR worse…hahaha!

OKAY… Lets get our giggle on!!!

MY Mother is many things:
BeFunky_0301.jpg
She is a Sister…to two crazy brothers…(one on each end of the photo)  Hi Uncle Vern and Uncle Fred! xo

She is sometimes confused…Smile  Hey…she IS a blonde.

BeFunky_DSCN0401.jpg
She is a hairdresser (with a sense of humor)   Yep…that’s me!

BeFunky_DSCN0413.jpg
She’s an excellent seamstress (just had some bad taste in color! )   She used to sew all of our clothes when we were little!

BeFunky_DSCN0427.jpg
She is playful and has the strenth of 10 men!   hahahaha!
LOVIN the jammies and the glasses Grammie!
She is NOT perfect…even she makes fashion mistakes sometimes…lol

BeFunky_DSCN0428.jpg
She is a VERY snappy dresser!!!  OH YA!!  She could rock a halter top in her day!~  (I am probably going to be killed now for sure!.)

BeFunky_DSCN0405.jpg
She is patient and creative…That horse had, and still has a horrible squeak…and I LOVED it!  
She designed and sewed all the curtains and things for our house. 

BeFunky_0231
She is SHORT…AND….She Loves to be outside and spending time with her biggest baby…yes…I am referring to my dad…AKA Grampie.  

BeFunky_0241.jpg
She is family oriented!   That is my late Great Uncle and Aunt.

BeFunky_0271.jpg
She LOVED big hair!   Good Lord Grammie…if we dyed it blue you could be Marge Simpson!!!  hee hee!

BeFunky_DSCN0416.jpg
She is supportive…even when she KNOWS I am making the biggest of mistakes!

She’s not afraid to get a little dirty…or be a little…ugly…OR do a little welding…oh  NO…wait…OOPS!  that’s just her regular glasses…there is no welding going on here!  MY BAD! Smile
yep…I am going to be tortured…for sure

She is quite physically fit and has an adventurous side…if you want proof…click the photo to get to the post that outlines one of her funniest adventures.  I guarantee you will find a giggle or two!

…and don’t forget to pop in and say Hi to Grammie…and get your mom a pair of shoes so she doesn’t drink and drive!  In my case…Grammie and Grampie are a bit of a handful…and I could really use a drink or two!

She is a lot of things to a lot of different people…but to me and the kids…she is GRAMMIE…and that’s a good thing.   We are all lucky to have you in our lives…
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!!!
With Love  from,
Toots, Cream Puff and the Gang!

That’s it for me for today!!!   I am poope!   You would not believe what I had to do to get some of those photos out of her house without her knowing I had them!!!  Yep…I was VERY sneaky!

I really hope all you moms out there are having a wonderful Mother’s Day !!!  As for me…I am going to be taking my punishment like a trooper…Mother’s Day is the day they make me shop…for DRESSES!  eek!!!

Today is not only Mother's Day, and My birthday....Today is Tootsie Time's birthday too!!!   Stay tuned for a special post to celebrate 5 years of Tootsie Time!

I'm sure you Mum will forgive you for sneaking out with so many great photos. (Loved the photos!) She couldn't stay cranky with someone who obviously loves her so much!

Wishing you and your Mum a very happy Mother's Day, and wishing you a Happy Birthday. You're both very special people. I hope you both get spoilt rotten on this extra special day!

Lovely post! So glad I wasn't the only sibling that dressed identical to my sister. Was that a fashion thing of the 60's or what?
Have a happy birthday and a wonderful Mothers day!

Tootsie:
Thankyou for the wonderful Mothersday post. I love it (for the most part) some of my unflattering photo`s. :)
You are a wonderful daughter and I love you so much (even when you sneak around taking UGLY photo`s) You are the light of my life, and you will always be my first special baby, even when you are 80 :). I am so happy that you and the kids live so close to us and we see each other almost every day. You are all so special. We had a wonderful Mothers Day and a wonderful time celebrateing your Birthday. Even Grampie, the Cowboy and the kids had fun. Can`t wait to do it again next year. XOXOXOXOXOXO
Gramie

...and SHE's beautiful. I am now sure where your genes for doing those things you do in excess of moderation came from, and that's not bad at all, just exemplary! ...and your humor, it must be in the genes too, i really love that Tootsie photo with horns. You must really be very strong headed while still young, in the genes too perhaps. All in all, you are a happy family and congratulations!
