Mother's Are Right!!!

I become more like my mother every day!!!  Last night she called and asked me why I haven't called her in a while..(I talked to her just a few days ago)...anyway....
This is the same thing I asked both of the boys just yesterday....
"Why Don't You Call Your Mother More???"
 My grandmother told me...my mother told me...and I told my boys..... the same old southern saying....."Turn about is fair play!"  Ooooops....I hate it when I've been had by my mother!!!!!
She asked me last night when her Valentine was coming in the mail.....and had been checking the mailbox for a card  ......Nothin'

Uh... Oh...

I had been working so hard on Scott and Kriten's album that I hadn't made her one yet but that is rectified today...So mother if you don't want to see your Valentine before you get it don't read any further..... (But I know she will)......
