Mother's Day


In spite of the rain and dreary weather, Mother's Day was wonderful. Dave put the cinnamon rolls in the oven. They were a delicious breakfast. After church, we came home and I got to just sit and read the paper, while they got dinner ready. That is one of the best parts of the day. It's so nice to be able to relax after church. We had a delicious dinner of chicken kiev, baked potatoes, carrots and pudding. After they finished the dishes, there were gifts for me. Katelyn got me a variety of cookbooks and some bath soaps. Chelsea gave me a new water bottle. Shaelyn gave me a sunflower that she started growing from seeds at school. We'll see how well they fare!
I had to play flute for church at night and Chelsea had to sing in the praise team, so we headed to church early in the afternoon. Katelyn stayed home with Shaelyn so she had supper ready when we all got home. Then we got to watch the Survivor finale. I was really hoping that Amanda would win. But we were happy that at least they got rid of Natalie next.
Hope you all enjoyed your Mother's Day as well!

Glad you had a good day. I like the part about reading the paper while they get dinner - that's one of my favorites too! Iwas glad to see Natalie go too, but I was also wishing for Amanda to win. At least it wasn't Natalie winning!

Yup- I agree about just relaxing while they fix dinner- so nice!
I was bummed about Amanda too.

I have never seen Survivor. It just never worked out that I was home to watch it and now I just have no interest in it.

Sounded like a great day. What is up with this weather? Snow here today, Tornadoes in the South.... what a Spring!

Awwww! That is a good picture of you all!

Who is Natalie? With everyone against her, I am beginning to feel sorry for her! Ha! Ha!

You can tell that I don't watch TV much.
