My Mother's Day

...was quiet and delightful.

I was greeted in the morning in my bed by two little monkeys.

We went to church, where Eva made me the sweetest (literally) gift...


brown sugar facial scrub,

Eva's gift

tucked into a bag that she made "all by herself,"


complete with a picture of her and I that she drew.

I think I'm the red-head:)

We came home and the girls each had a peanut butter sandwich with Cheetos and I had leftovers.

The girls took naps, and I had a cupcake...

Hummingbird mini cake

or two, but who's counting? Not me.


My friends Matt and Michelle brought me flowers,

Tulips from the neighbor

and this little cupcake compact mirror, which I adore.


My Mom had some flowers delivered to me as well.

Flowers from Mom, Dad and lil Sis

Thanks Mom. I love them and I love you!

I edited some photos and watched a movie with the girls.

I put away some laundry.

My friend Becca brought me home-made Manicotti for dinner. It was delish.


And my camera battery died so I had to use my iPhone.

The girls went to bed, and I only had to put Izzy back to bed twice.


She asked me to sing "Don't Cry" which is really just the Amy Grant version of the River Lullaby from the Prince of Egypt.

And Eva wanted to sing "Smile" with me.


I had a cup of Winter Mint tea with honey and watched a couple episodes of Lost.

I went to bed happy and content and truly blessed.


It was a very good Mother's Day.

I hope yours was too.

What a great day! Happy Mother's Day (a day late). You are a precious friend...I love you so much and wish you lived closer. Are you sure you don't want to drive on down to Arkansas this summer!?!

In a very Southern way, I have a true 'hankering' for some Anne Cortez. I miss you.
