Chisum Crew said...

Happy Birthday! For my birthday last year all I wanted was for everyone to eat at Chili's because they were donating all proceeds to St. Jude's. My mom made my dream come true. Hubby and I met her there for dinner - she bought, got us a pepper she colored and donated money in my name to the cause. It's my hope/prayer that we can do the same this year (September) but it won't be the same as we lost Mama in April this year.
