hope you had a happy mothers day!




I hope you all had a great mothers day.. I had a sweet day, even though I was on call and had to work a few hours. I started my day out having breakfast with my babies!






then my son called while I was out working and asked if I wanted to go out to breakfast.. well, I didnt want to wreck his plans, so of course I said sure! so I went and had breakfast number two with child number four! I ate half an omelet, I was so not hungry!! but it was nice to spend time with just robert. then I went back out to work.

when I was done working I went to my least favorite place in the world.. walmart.. with my daughters. i needed a window shade.. (and by the way.. I looked tonight at Valu and also at the dollar general and they didnt have them either!!) can you believe that walmart doesnt have any plain old window shades? but oh well, I had a good time with the girls. then we went home and watched.... benjamin button.. DO NOY WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY ON THIS MOVIE! It was painfully weird and slow and LONG! Bethany slept through it.
This is one of the things I got for mothers day, Jennifer must have managed to buy this at the doll show when I wasnt looking! isnt she adorable!? Bethany gave some Mary englbriet things and also a princess mug!

Tony and his girlfriend came over before the movie ended and we eventually had a nice steak dinner cooked on the grill with veggies and potato casserole. For dessert we had banana splits.. well actually I had a banana split, the girls had sundaes and the guys didnt have dessert! Thats why they are all much thinner then us!

(ummmmm... and I had a banana split for my dinner tonight! tony ate last nights left overs.)
anyways... I hope you all had a wonderful mothers day too. I didnt get any pictures of the kids while they were here. but bethany took some interesting pictures of my sock monkey dancing and my son pointing a rifle at her!! when she down loads them I'll copy it and post it.. but beware.. its not a very nice picture!
Have a lovely week my friends!

Well even though you had to work a bit your Mother's day sounded great, with that banana split being the icing on the cake!

Your Mother's Day sounds wonderful. Mine was wonderful also. We have one daughter and one grandson living here. They came over and spend time with me. Did have more kids ang grands living here until they moved to PA. Got phone calls, cards and gifts from all 8 kids and some of the grands. Ken took me out to supper. It was a nice Mother's Day. :-)

Love your needle punch. The colors are beautiful
Hugs

Happy Mother's Day, Viv! Violet's looking very....Violet! Yes, you must do Moo cards- they're great and fun! And they give you a different way of looking at the details in your art.
BTW, Benjamin Button....we were riveted....loved it....cried over a certain part that touched a cord....but that's the beauty of movies...to each his own!
