Happy Birthday, Mama!

Today, my mother would have been 100 years old.  She was born December 11, 1911.  She is probably glad that she didn't make it to 100 years of life - she died at age 93, after a long life that was a blessing to all of us.

In honor of her, I am posting a rerun of a previous post about her.  She was so great - so funny, so wise and  one of the most beautiful women in the world.

I celebrated today by making Biscochitos - a traditional New Mexican Christmas cookie that she always made for us!  I will post more about Biscochitos in a couple of days.  Meanwhile, click here to enjoy this glimpse of my mom!

Happy Birthday Mama!
