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!
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!
