ohruthie=Old Ruthie! Happy 80th birthday Mom!

My Mom is one amazing woman! Yesterday my family celebrated her 80th birthday with a picnic in the park. She was sporting a little pink crown and looked cuter than a button. She still has her hair done twice a week and has her nails and toes done regularly. She and my Dad have been married for 60 years and they are a match made in heaven. They love to go to the casino's, party with the neighbors in their garage of all places, and spend time with their kids, grandkids and great grandkids. She has a shop on Etsy (ohruthie) packed with little knitted hats, crocheted blankets, and felted purses, but doesn't know how to get to it most of the time. When she sells something, we call her and she writes it all down in a little book. My daughter, Natalie and I run her shop for her. She makes us laugh and we are all devoted to her!

One of my Mom's latest creations, a little security blanket!
