Birthday blessings, Mom!

My mom celebrated a special birthday yesterday. 
 My sister and I surprised her with a favorite toy from her childhood.
We've been scouting the antique markets and estate sales in the search of a Ginny doll and her special pink furniture.
This time, ebay came to the rescue. 

 Happy 70th Birthday, Mom.   Keep on playing!

Go girl! Once we start feeling too old to play, that's when we turn old. Great idea! Happy Birthday!!

My parents both celebrate their 70th birthdays this year as well! Love that Ginny set- how I love the original Ginny dolls. I still have my collection from the 80s, but I have yet to get one from the 50s. Happy Birthday, Kim's Mom!
