Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - Celebrate Mother's Day - Show Us Some Photos

It's Saturday Night - 
time for more Genealogy Fun! 

Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible! music) is to:

1) Sunday, 13 May is Mother's Day in the USA.  Let's celebrate it by showing some of our photos with our mother.  

2)  Extra credit:  What did you call your mother during her life?  What did your children call your mother?  

3)  More extra credit:  Have you written a biography or tribute to your mother?  If so, please share a link if you have one.

4)  Share your photo(s) on your own blog post or in a Facebook or Google + post.  Leave a link on this blog post to  help us find your Mom photos.

Here's mine:

1)  Mom photos

a)  A baby picture - me and mom (probably in late 1943):

b)  A pre-wedding photo - me and Mom in 1970:

c)  My family in 1985 (Linda, Lori, Mom, Tami, Randy):

d)  Mom and her three sons in 2001 (Randy, Stan, Scott, Mom):

2)  I think I called my mother "Mom" all of her life.  Perhaps a "Muh-ther" once in awhile when I was exasperated.  My daughters called her "Nana," as did the other grandchildren.    

3)  I enjoyed every day with my mother from 1943 to 2002.  You can read my tribute to her in  Saturday Night Genealogy Fun - A Tribute to Your Mother.

I could find only two photos of me with my mother.

I really should do a tribute to my mother. But I did find photos of us together when I was a baby (I was the first child).

I have done three posts already about mum, so I only shared two photos.

Here's my post. I shared some photos and a link to my mom's life in the U.S. Navy during WWII when she was a WAVE.

Your mom is a beautiful woman and she only gets better with age. Unfortunately I don't have any photos of my mom on pc and no scanner at hand to turn paper cards into pixels. Sigh. Neither did I called my mother "mother". No, I don't think so. But for dad, I do use father occasionally in a talk, mostly when referring to him as a third person, and almost always when mentioning him in reviews on scribendi. Not sure why.
