Mummy – I wanted to do something a little more special than just the usual “you are wonderful” blog (although you are) to help you celebrate your birthday. I did a little digging, and here are some pictures of you, your family and some memories from Ottawa. The little girl in the front row of the picture above to the far left is you! You are still a brat : )
When you said Uncle Morris was the oldest – you weren’t kidding! Here is his wedding invitation…from 1912. Zaidie was still in the Shtetl then.
I thought this was interesting!
Your favourite place for Challah, Rye Bread, Cinnamon Buns, and everyone’s favourite – Seven Layer Cake.
If you look carefully, you’ll see our favourite Zelikovitz’s – Bobbi, Zaidie, Auntie Becky, Uncle Dave, Uncle Max – only Auntie Tessie seems to be missing!
Remember how Bobbi used to have crates of Pure Spring in the basement?
A painting of Zelikovitz Bros. You must be so proud of your father!
Whose the little princess, or should I say Queen, in the front row? Why, that’s you!
Mummy – I hope that you liked your little photo tribute. Dr. Oz always says family is so important and that you should tell them how you feel. You are the best mother in the world. You have handled all of life’s challenges with a sense of humour and more bravery than someone of your little stature should. Lately, especially, you have been the epitome of grace under pressure. There is nobody that I admire more.
Love to you on your birthday and always,
Your very proud daughter xoxo
