Mother's Day started Friday with a delivery of these from my son, Adam and his sweet family in NY (with a note attached saying next year we'd be together since they're moving back west after his residency--YAY!):
Later, that evening all sorts of fun and delight broke forth when my daughter, DL, and sweet family drove into the yard. Lots of hugs, kisses, sweetness and goodness with six of our grandchildren, and their parents here for a couple days. We had a great time.
Saturday, Trey and Adam (12 & 10) super helped Randy and I in the garden. Should clarify by saying mostly I supervised all they did and I did a bit of weeding and replanting of containers they brought up to me to work on. It looks so nice out there and all grandkiddos love playing in the water--jumping over my darling ladybug sprinkler DH got me years ago, filling cups with water to try soaking each other with, watering with my can or the hose. Flowers and plants greatly appreciated everyone's efforts!
Sunday girlie girls and boyly boys, their mom and I used embroidery floss to stitch together the little top I'm working on for Blogger's Quilt Festival. Trey & Sabrina under pulling their threads through; Sagie, Sydney & Spencer (with mom's help) sewing. It was great working together and love each one of those precious stitches. Some still needs to be done so will do that myself, but just barely as I love what they've already done!
Trey made this wonderful walking stick for me--love the area he carved out and sanded for me to hang on. Stick has lichen on it--fantastic. Batiks DH gave me--aren't they lovely?!
Kiddos each did a mosaic paper picture for their momma, then I glued them together and added glittered words. Love that saying!
Sabrina stitching--super concentration on her part for sure! Randy and Fred made a delicious dinner of ham, new red mashed potatoes, and strawberry spinach salad. Sagie helped me make chocolate chip, peanut butter chip, pretzel pieces cookies--just yum! All in all, wonderful day and weekend. Thanks everyone!
