Mom Zombie

October 15, 2012 - Author: Amy - 22 Comments

Saturday was my mom’s birthday.  She’s alright, I guess.  As far as old ladies go.

I have been known in the past to get somewhat sentimental and write weepy posts about those I love.  This is not one of those times.  This time, I made us into zombies.

I called the picture “Mom Zombie” because it sounds like Rob Zombie.  Aren’t I clever with good taste in music?

But that’s not all!  In addition to the really thoughtful gift certificate we gave her.  I did some minor crafting.

I took a mason jar and trimmed it in a jute and fall ribbon.

Then put a candle and faux fall foliage (say that three times fast) in.

When I gave it to her, I said “If it looks as though the candle has already been lit… It’s because it has.  Happy birthday!”

I guess I’m a blogger first and a daughter second, these days.

But in all seriousness… My mom’s better than your mom.
