Special Weekend

My Mothers day weekend started with dinner out on Friday night with my oldest daughter Shannon and her family. They had been at the ball field. Bryan (SIL) is so good to either coach or help all of them play ball. Can you imagine having 3 playing ball? I don't know how they keep up with it all. Brother is always the star in pictures as you can tell. Angel is so sweet. You can just tell from her smile. Sweet teen is sitting in the back next to me. Isn't she a beautiful young lady? I can't believe how she has grown up so fast. They gave me a gift certificate for a massage and some really nice hair spray that I love.
Then Saturday morning my baby daughter Mandy & my baby grandson Little D came over and brought us breakfast. She stayed a while and we went outside and had a great time with her and the baby. Yummy.........breakfast was so good. Mandy & Dusty (SIL) gave me a computer stand that keeps my laptop cool. I love it!

Isn't he just a doll? He loves to ride our gator.
All of my grandchildren love to ride the gator and feed the fish in our pond.

Then on Sunday after church Maranda & Lane (the honeymooners) invited us to lunch at their new home. They have worked so hard on it and it is just beautiful. They gave me a beautiful framed picture of all of us at the wedding. It is gorgeous.

They fixed a feast for us. It was just delicious. Isn't their table gorgeous.
They also invited Lane's (SIL) parents to lunch. We all go to church together so it was nice to sit and visit.
Thank you to my children. It was a wonderful weekend. It started on Friday and ended on Sunday. I loved how they made Mothers Day last the whole weekend. I wonder if they all planned it that way!

You are truly blessed to have all of your children living close by. I had an email and text message from my son. That is all I'll say about that. You know.

It sounds like a positively perfect MOther's Day weekend. I can't believe how big D has gotten.

Enjoy that massage.

We had such a wonderful time having you and dad over on Sunday. That was just a small token of my love for you. There is no way that I could ever really show you how much I love you. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day.
