Just Call Me Miss California

Shhhh. Don't tell anyone, but my mom has a big birthday coming up on Sunday. She's turning 70.

Now, I don't know if Mom wants the whole world to know she's 70, but since I only have about six readers and she's one of them, that leaves about five people who have the potential to say, "Gee, I didn't know Karen was that old! She doesn't look a day over 69."

Anyway, my sweet mom only made one request for her birthday. She wanted nothing more than to have her three girls meet her in California for a few days of fun and festivities.

Gee, let's see . . . California . . . for five days . . . with my mom and sisters . . . and Dad's paying. Sure! I'm game!

Actually, I would have gone if Dad wasn't paying because this is going to be one fun and special weekend.

So, that's a very long way of explaining why I won't be around the old blog for a few days. This is official goodbye . . . until Monday.

Unless, of course, I decide to post some pictures while I'm gone.


  1. Have fun you 4 gals!!!! Ken is such a great dad!!! Can you believe my mom turned 80 this year???????????? It is great that they are both still so young at heart. Your mom has been such a fun friend for me on facebook. Happy Birthday Karen!

  2. This is the mom and I couldn't be prouder of what these girls have done with their lives and their families! We owe it all to God who guided every day of our lives. Thank you girls for taking time to celebrate with me!!!

  3. Have a great trip! I love when I get to take a trip with my mom and sister. Happy Birthday, Shelly's mom:-)
