Happy Birthday Mom!

How about a non-Tunisian blog post.  (Boy, what a relief, right?)  How about something really important?  Something like...

MY MOM'S BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!

Since I am in Far Far Away Land and can't be there for her birthday celebration I thought we could celebrate right here.  So let's all give three cheer for my beautiful, wonderful, funny, sassy, all-around terrific Mom.  Feel free to post your love and admiration for her in the comments section.

I love you, Mom!

Happy birthday, Rachel's mom! You are a fabulous mom, and I know it because I know your fabulous kids. Plus you have fed and housed me while I visited California, and I loved being at your house. 3 cheers to you!

Mom said...

I love you Rachel. I sure missed you at my Birthday Fest 2010. I could feel the love all the way from Tunisia. I also have a great love for your fabulous friends. You chose wisely!

Chris said...

Happy Birthday, Mom! I hope Dad spoiled you. See you in a couple of weeks.

Laura said...

Happy Birthday! I'll say something similar to what I said on your husband's birthday post. I am so grateful for you, mostly because of the wonderful and amazing friends I have been so blessed to have, who also happen to be your daughters! Because they are all SO fabulous, that means YOU are fabulous! Thanks for being such a great woman and mother to them!

I love, love, love you!! You are so warm, caring and happpy. It's so contagious and I have always loved spending time with you. You are such an inspiration to your children and those of us that have used them to sneak into your life. :) Have a wonderful year!

Chris and Gina said...

Ditto to what everyone else said. You're amazing, and I know that because I am amazing. :) ha, ha

Dear Mama Knecht,

Thank you for lending us your daughter for a few months. You should know she is changing lives here. We all adore her, especially Sam. I know I will be consoling him for weeks when she leaves.

Happy Birthday from Tunis!

Happy Birthday to Rachel's Mom! You're amazing and wonderful and you raised amazing and wonderful kids. Keep smiling!

Valerie said...

Ginger, happy birthday. I mean it.

p.s. A confession: when you babysat us after school at El Rancho, sometimes Lindsay and I ate more than the allotted two cookies. Though, that was mostly Lindsay's idea (sorry linds). And also, they were really, really good.

Camille said...

Valerie: Your comment made me laugh a little more than necessary. How dare you take more than 2. That was a solid rule.

Mom said...

Valerie, I'm sure you weren't the only one that took more than their alloted cookie ration, and why doesn't it surprise me that it was Lindsay's idea. Glad you enjoyed and I forgive you. I have to confess that I have, more than once, taken more than my alloted amount of cookies. They are good! Thanks for the good wishes and fond memories.

Rachel, I love all of your friends. They are the BEST!

Chris and Gina said...

Valerie, Your confession is the best! Can't wait for the Knecht/Appel reunion at Christmas!

Heath said...

Happy Birthday (a little late). Thanks for being such a great mom, so I can have so much fun with your kids.

Krii said...

Thanks for being born and birthing Rachel. And Katie. And Gina. And Stacy. Wait. No. Well. She is now a Knecht, and she couldn't have been without you... Thanks for all your GREAT contributions. Happy Birthday. Late. But not never.
