Happy Mother's Day All!

Happy Mother's Day to all you mothers! I hope your day was made very special. Mine was spent with both our families and made delightful by all involved. Lee's rotation is at a hospital were he gets food from the awesome cafeteria and he has been bringing me my favorite drinks all week! Then he took Graham to the store with him and they picked out a bouquet of white roses and yellow mum, so fresh and pretty on my table! On Thursday Graham brought home a bouquet of hand-painted tulips from egg cartons for my "mah-ders day!"

With the flowers came a note. This is what it said: 
This is to Certify that my mom is the greatest! 
Here's why:  "because she gives me lots of grapes and food. She gives me green beans, and I love those!"
Love, GA...a...m"
(He signed his own name!)

What a sweetie!
(notice the nice lip...he said the couch hit him.)

We spent church and a mother's day luncheon with the Graham Fam. Graham's Primary class facilitated a gift for me too; a rose and a note. Here are Graham's responses to the prompts on the note:
My mom's favorite color is: blue
She loves to eat: grapes
My mom smiles because: she has a little baby in her tummy
My mom wants me to:   eat bacon
I like it when my mom:   makes bacon soda
If I could give her anything I would:  give her fruit
When she grows up she want to:  be a girl
My mom loves me because:  she has lots of watermelon

(It seems Graham - of all people - has food on the brain!)

Luncheon with the Graham was super. It was phenomenal food, including a lime-ice drink, salmon smothered in lime n butter sauted onions, vegi kabobs, a beautiful salad and bruccetta for the 3rd year running! We were pretty stuffed by the time we got to the Ragsdales!

Grandpa Ragsdale is just a little boy in a big body and loves his grandkids! 
He comes up with the best activities!

"Here kids, try this!"

Doris Day Mom

Amy posted this on Facebook... and I'm completely in love! Was there ever a more lovely face? A more stylish swish? A more pure and happy lady?

This image (captured by whom?) is something I will always, ALWAYS love looking to remembering my darling, Doris Day Mother!
