Mother's Day 2011

Mother's Day was pretty great !!!

Paul had to work all weekend so I didn't see him much but I did get to spend a lot of time with the kids. Yay !!!

Friday was so beautiful here about 75 degrees. So I had planned a cookout for Sunday afternoon. I decided to change it since they were calling for rain and lots of wind. So Friday afterschool we had a cookout for dinner. Paul had to work late but we saved him some. Had a neighbor later over that doesn't get to see her grandchildren. Everyone was happy !!!!!!! Lots of good food too !!!

Saturday was ok I made some Chili one of my favorites. Ridge had a birthday party to go to at 3 pm. He was going to stay all nite too & come home on Sunday morning. He was going to a casino in Reno and play Laser Tag there. I really like the friend of his so I let him go even if it was Mother's Day weekend. Thaniqua had something to do with a friend too. She wasn't staying all night though. So that left Jennifer & Carly. Paul came home at 6 pm we ate & then Jennifer & I decided to go to the Mother's Day carnival next door at the park. It was super windy so I left Carly at home. She isn't much for riding yet & it was getting late for her. So she stayed home with Paul and they watched NASCAR Race Paul's favorite !!!

Sunday came & church kids were all home. I got my gifts they made at school which was so nice better than anything they could have bought me. Jennifer class decorated a pen for me. Thaniqua's class gave me a flower to plant outside. Ridge made me a card & inside the card he wrote ~ I love you Mom more than Halo 2 ~ a video game he loves to play. My boy I love him so much. I love all of them so much. The girls informed me that next weekend when Dad is home he is going to help them cook dinner for me. This will be good I can't wait.

I also got a beautiful card from Jessica , my stepdaughter. I was so shocked she never talks to us , but there was a time when we were very close. I was so Happy !!!

Most of all I got to spend it with the children and that's what Mother's Day is all about. Forget the flowers , cards & such. All in all having three children in Heaven to meet someday soon , I know I'm so blessed. Thank you God for letting me become a Mother.

Here is a couple pics from Jennifer at the carnival

Oh I wanted to just add this it's been really nice weather but as I look out my window it's SNOWING & the sun is shining !! I hope Spring returns soon the mountains got some great snowfall last nite.
Have a great Monday !!!

Glad you all had a good time! that is so nice that your step daughter remembered you. Maybe she will start connecting with you more. You all were so busy, but that is good. Honoring you, your earthly children, and your heavenly babes. xoxo
