Happy Mother's Day!!!!!!!!

Yesterday was, obviously, Mother's Day.  It only comes once a year, officially, but we ought to celebrate mothers every day!  Yesterday morning, we had my Mom's parents over for brunch.  We had whole wheat pancakes with all the fixings, fried apples and sausage.  Yum!!  A little later we had homemade peach pie for dessert!  It was a really good morning, very peaceful and enjoyable.  I spent a lot of time in the kitchen, but I had fun with what I was doing, so that was great! :)

Fresh roses from Mom's rose bushes

Who doesn't love mini morsels?!

Libbey got her hair curled for the occasion

Peach pie

Coconut thumbprint cookies with salted caramel filling...yummy!

That afternoon, we went over to Yosemite High School to meet the Beckers, Thompsons and Shaws for church and a picnic.  Yep, we had church at a high school!  It was great, Daddy preached, we all sang hymns, spent some time praying, and then had pizza and salad for dinner.  Cookies and brownies were for dessert, and everyone played games, soccer, or just hung out.  Some of us girls walked around (and around and around) the track and talked.  It was all so much fun!  I regret that I didn't take any pictures, though I did have my camera. :(

It was a really wonderful Mother's Day, and I think that all the mothers, including mine, would agree.  I love mothers, especially MINE!!!!!!!!!!!

"Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: "Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all".
