A Happy Mother’s Day

Posted on


We’ve had so much excitement the past few weeks between my birthday and Paul’s birthday that for Mother’s Day I told Paul that I really just wanted a nice Sunday afternoon bbq.  And boy, did he (and the weather) deliver!

I slept in crazy late and woke up to a beautifully cleaned kitchen (we left it a big mess after entertaining last night) and homemade waffles.  Then some happy time spent sewing a little zippered bag for my mother. Then, while Paul and Tabby were out at the store, I got to have some idyllic time with Clark-we cozied up in the hammock and I began reading The BFG to him.  It was every bit as delightful as I’d hoped it would be, and he’s really enjoying the story. I don’t have a picture of that, but I do have one from later in the day of my own mother and Tabby.  Look how sweet they look:

Then my mom joined us and Paul cooked us some wonderful steak and veggies on the grill, followed by homemade brownies and strawberries and whipped cream and angel food cake-yum! It was really a very nice Mother’s day.  I wouldn’t be as good a mother without such a good husband and father to my children.  So, thank you Paul! And thank you to my usually lovely children-I’m so happy you are mine!

And what weekend would be complete without some more staged baby chick photos?

Mother Hen is doing great with her babies.

I have a little movie up on Flickr where you can see them eating together and hear her special mother hen sounds that she makes.

Hope you all had a great weekend and Mother’s Day, too!

  1. The BFG is one of the best books! I think I’m going to pull it out and begin reading it to my kids. They would really enjoy it. Don’t I remember that his soda’s bubbles go down instead of up, causing his burps to come out the back door instead? Funny. I’m glad you had a great mother’s day! Great photos, too.

    • Hi Mandy, Frobscottle! Yes, I loved that part too when I was a kid. we’re almost to that part-just read about the disgusting Snozzcumbers that he has to eat.

  2. I love the chick in the yellow bucket so cute… it could win a prize 🙂
