A joyfilled Mother's Day Weekend.


Happy Mother's Day!
What a weekend it's been for me!
It started Friday morning with a tea, at the day care, with Charlotte (second from the right). We were dressed up, and had  cupcakes, received a handmade necklace, and even wore a crown!
It was a delight.

Later in the day, Kelly's family took me to my favorite restaurant for Italian food.
The two cousins below sat next to each other, and it was like sitting at a sideshow at the circus.
Between Charlotte, and Anson acting like two little clowns, and Anson and his older brother sitting across the table waging war against each other...I enjoyed dinner, AND a show!
I truly LOVE going out to eat with all of these little people.  Everything they do makes me laugh.
My poor daughter, Kelly, never seems to find any of it funny....I don't get it????
She seems so tense.
After dinner, we watched Ethan play soccer.
Then it was time to relax at Kelly, and Dan's house for the rest of the evening.
Sitting with Dan, Kelly, and Ethan that night was very special to me.
Just being able to spend some quiet time with them, with no interruptions, will be a forever memory.

Don't let the above photo fool you......look closer....there is trouble lurking behind those innocent looking faces.

Saturday morning I spent the day with Erin, Tony, Zoey, and Sadie.
They not only gave me one of my newest favorite bottles of wine, and the cutest of all wine glasses to drink it out of.....they took me out for lunch.
I LOVE Red Robin's blue cheese burger!!
So that is where we went for lunch.
We spent the afternoon together....just hangin' out.
The most fun was waiting in the car with Tony while Erin and the girls ran in the dollar store for a few minutes.  Tony is a super funny guy. He made me laugh about jobs that involve working with the public, and experiences dealing with customers.
Another fun memory....laughing with Tony.
Going to the post office to mail a letter was fun, too.
We all sat in the car watching Tony lick a peal off stamp, and try to attach it to the letter as the wind took the stamp up in the air, and Tony ended up chasing it through the parking lot!  Oh my.....

After the "tea" on Friday, I received this lovely set from my daughter Melissa.
She's been collecting the pieces for me ever since I saw it at Home Goods while shopping with her one day.  I think it's so pretty, and appropriate for the day.
It's simple, and white.....but a treasure to me.

Here's that beautiful crown I got to wear at the "tea" with Charlotte.
She decorated it herself!
If you look to the left, you can see the wonderful necklace that she also made for me.
Such a special morning.

When I returned home last night, these were waiting for me.
Kelly sent them.  How thoughtful was that??!!
Needless to say, my weekend has been joyful.
Filled with moments of laughter, and love.
I hope that my girls will be pampered today.
I hope that their children will shower them with cards, and little gifts given with love.
I hope they feel as loved by their babes, as I feel by mine.
Happy Mother's Day!
BTW....The Mister got all the flowers to fill the window boxes for my mom's day present.....life is good.~~~~~xo
