My Mother’s Day

I had an awesome Mother’s Day!! ALL of my children, their spouses and my grandchildren were with me! That is  is something that usually happens twice a year…Mother’s Day and Christmas! 106_5969  I LOVE having everybody together! Trying to get this group together and still is a miracle in itself, so if the picture quality is less than perfect, at least we’re all in the picture! :-)

We all gathered at my hubby’s sister’s after church. The Tipsy Planter was a hit! It was fun to be able to say “yes, I made it!” ;-)

Having everyone with me was a truly a gift and a blessing, but they put icing on the cake for me! My kiddos all wrote notes to me in a card along with a GC for a massage at Serenity in the Mountains ….very special! I have never done anything like that before so it will be a real treat!107_0991

My hubby usually  treats me to a Home Depot Card for my spring flowers and he came through again this year! The card even came with a small seed packet attached. I'm seeing a craft here too…I think I will modge podge the empty packet and make a marker with it! Pardon the glare!

My youngest sons who are 9 and 11 remembered a mug that I was admiring at a local coffee and donut shop. They told their dad when they were all there Saturday and asked to get it for me! :-) It explains my current weight!

The only better description would be “coffee and chocolate enriched”! lol

I am grateful for my family. I have been blessed with an abundance of loving children and grandchildren who are a joy to my soul! It has been a special day for this mom!

Thank you for letting me share!
