Weekend Of Celebrating!

Happy Mother's Day!  Whether you're a Mom or you have a Mom, it's a day to celebrate.  I don't know what memories you have of your Mom but hopefully they are good, fun, instructive, and loving ones.  Besides celebrating Mother's Day this weekend we also celebrated another birthday.  My son Phil turned 35 on Saturday.  He went from this:
A mad 22 month old kiddo! To this:
A loving Dad of two little munchkins of his own! Happy Birthday Pip! You are one of the reasons I get to celebrate today! Thanks for being the best #3 son in the world! Now on to Mother's day.   I was blessed with 4 awesome sons who made me feel special today.  Craig called from Portland and we had a wonderful chat, then Jackie, Phil and Jordan had a nice late lunch with us.  I never even took one photo! What the What?  Yep, I just sat back and enjoyed the food, the laughter, and the truth about some crazy happenings in the past...sometimes I guess it's better to find things out 20yrs. later!  It was a great day and I must also shout out to my wonderful husband and thank him for the nice gift of music he gave me! Thanks Babe! 

Three out of the four...and of course:
Jordan! Love you guys! You made motherhood a blast...(I'm getting old so I'll just say I've forgotten and forgiven any past mishaps...I hope you'll do the same for me! Ha!)
I would be a bad daughter if I didn't give my fabulous Mom a big Thank you.  She's so amazing!
She was the hardest working Mom.  She raised 6 kids and worked full-time at the hospital.  She was a wonderful wife to my dear Dad and today she is still there for all her kids.  We enjoy visiting her and love it when she comes to visit us.  She sacrificed a lot so we could succeed and I'm sure that even if she was attacked by a bear, she would make sure we were all OK!
Love you Mom! Happy Mother's Day!

Hi, dear YaYa! Happy Mother's Day to you and to your wonderful mom. I'm pleased to learn that your day was spent reminiscing with your sons. I hope your "granddoggie" Eddy came by with Jordan.

Your sons are fortunate to have a fine, upstanding person like you for a mother. You, in turn, are also lucky to have such a hard working, sacrificing and caring mother. Once again, happy Mother's Day to you and your dear mom. I wish you a safe and happy week ahead, dear Yaya!

Love that last picture of your mom! Glad you had a wonderful Mother's Day! Raising 4 boys had to be super...exciting! I'm sure never a dull moment. Boys are fun and you are the perfect mom for boys because you are fun, too!

I am so glad that you had a very happy mother's day. I wish all the mothers in your family good health and happiness along with every other member.
Your mom is a gorgeous lady. Lots of hugs for her.

We had a great day but missed being with my mom due to Karin's babies being too young to travel well. She had a great day though, or at least she said she did.

I spoke for Mother's Day at church and sent her a copy. I think she liked that, as there was a tribute to her, of course.
