    Its today. I remembered last week, then forgot to mail it. Crud Crud Crud. She lives 6 hours away from me, so driving over and bringing flowers is out of the question. I could have floweres delivered, but its a little pricey and she doesnt really like cut flowers. Any ideas? I thought of sending her an internet video of the kids and me saying hi, singing a song for her etc.

    Internet video or a phone call sounds great. :)

    I've forgotten card before with various family members and then emailed them an animated card. But I think your idea of the video with the kids singing a song is way better and a lot more personal. Kids love birthdays, so I think your kids will enjoy it. Each of the kids can advise your mom how to have fun on her birthday.
