Happy Birthday Ann

March is birthday and anniversary month in our family. Both of my children and both of their spouses have birthdays in March plus our anniversary is also in March. Today just happens to be the birthday of Ann, our son's better half.

The first time I met Ann, I just knew that she would be my daughter in law. She fit right into our family. She will probably hate me, though, for posting this and these pictures of her. But I just want to let her know that I love her like a daughter.

Ann is the mother of our oldest grandson, Sam, and our granddaughter, Erin. She is a great mom and has raised two wonderful kids.

Poor Ann never was into sports but she married a sports nut. Then she became the mom of two kids who inherited their Dad's and grandmother's love of sports--and in doing so she became a Soccer Mom, a Basketball Mom, a Softball Mom, a Baseball Mom, a Snowboard Mom etc etc etc.

So, Ann, I just want to wish you a very Happy Birthday and thanks for being my daughter in law.

With love,
Mom R.

Happy Birthday Ann! What a nice post to honor here. Your son was lucky. I'm a sports nut and my kids inherited that passion, but my ex refused to accept it. He still won't come and watch his boys play. Good for her for putting her family first. :)

Here's another 'Happy Birthday' Ann. I would say that being a Mom through all of those sports, is a full time job! :-)
