Memories of Mother's Day 2009

My Mother's Day was a great day. Everyone was able to come over except Elsa & baby Jack and my parents. I cooked out some yummy food and we just kicked back and enjoyed watching children run and play. We also celebrated Jeff's birthday with a special Pistachio torte he requested that I make. Here are some memories from the Wonderful Day. Steph and family gave me a really cute Thermos tote bag with the neatest drinking bottle that keeps track of the amount of water or drink you have. I used it on my walk around the lake yesterday on my lunch hour. I was also surprised to get a recorded Mother's Day card from Steph that said I will be treated to a pedicure before my vacation next month. We will go and get one together. I can't wait! I love mother/daughter special time.
Art work from Abby & her daddy.
Ivy is studying her uncle Nate. She has always watched him from a distance, so this was good that she was able to sit on his lap for a few minutes.
Carter says "Cheers"!
Gray's favorite cookies! I think he ate more than just a few!Abby enjoying a cookie and she also loved playing with her boy cousins.
Ivy and Mimi. Look at that sweet face! Not mine, Ivy's! I have on my pearls with my Mickey Mouse T-shirt. I changed after church and left my jewelry on. Maybe I'm making a new fashion statement!
Ivy riding "Moo" the pony. Abby gave him, his name.
The pot of chickens & hens I picked out from my son. I tried to grow them from a starter my sister gave me years ago that I brought home from Louisiana, but they didn't make it. I hope these survive.
These are just a few of the memories. Would you believe I didn't get a picture of Noah, Steph or Jeff? Sorry....there is always next time.

Sounds like you had a wonderful Mother's Day. Sweet grandkids all around. Your daughter seems to have found a gem. Doing dishes, my husband would never.

Thanks for commenting my blog. I use a coupon organizer, I have to admit I am behind now. I do like Cellfire, there is a link to it on my sidebar. They work by loading coupons onto your shoppers card. I like this because you can't forget those.
