This is my 96 year old mother with her birthday gifts from the family this past weekend.  I weighed the bars and bags - 7 lbs!

And here she's making a wish!

What a sweet treat she got!! are so lucky. You really should share some of the stories she has told you over the years.

My grandmother has been gone for a long time. She was born in 1884. I have always wished that she would have shared some of her life stories with me, like what her childhood was like. She taught me to crochet when I was very young, but I never thought to ask for stories of her life.

Oh my goodness - 7 lbs of chocolate! I can imagine her racing around like a 5 year old on Easter day.

Best wishes to all!

Happy Birthday to your Mom. 7 pounds of chocolate. Too funny! Ask her if she wants to share.

Congrats to your Mom! And the cake is lovely, too! Wow - 7 lb of chocolate. Now THAT is a birthday, hehe!
I hope all is well with you; I am just trying to catch up on my blog reading (can you tell?). Only 3 months until the Retreat!! Can’t wait to see you again. :-) Hugs, Cat
