Happy Late Mothers Day!

To me, moms day is about OUR Mothers....not about me, so we spent our weekend with my mom and Jamie's mom. On Saturday, we went up to see my mom, the kids had a blast swimming and Ms Sarah made a crafty project with her maw maw (they share that love, and talent, of craftiness). I brought Mom a big beautiful flower, but being there in her craftiness made me think of what we would make for my mother in law (and we'll go back and make for Mom now that I had the thought to make them). Our crafty gifts, and YES, I realize there are mispelled words, one is my fault, one the childrens.




Although I did bring my camera to Mom's, I forgot to take any pictures.
On Sunday, we headed over to my mother in law's house for a visit with Granny.




The boys and I (the boys being husband and father in law) cooked fish and the works, to go with the side dishes that my sister in law and I had already prepared. The highlight of the day was getting to see the kids...and hold our newest kiddo in our family, Miles Henry.
(this is a picture of my sister in law holding Miles, who is her nephew)




My nephew in law Mike is great at baseball, so he spent the afternoon helping the boys with their pitches and hits while the other kids played around.



My gifts for mothers day are always with me, day in and day out, and they are the type that keep on giving (even if sometimes what they give is grief). I praise God each day for them, they are wondrous gifts these children.



I hope that YOU had a great Mothers Day also....I hope you have a great EVERY day!

Looks like a great Mother's Day. I love the step stones. We've done those the past few years and everyone always enjoys getting them and having a handprint to keep.
