#204 My sweet girls

My sweet girls :)
As you saw previously...I had a wonderful Mother's Day last weekend. Lots of time with my girls. 
The week continued with more time with my girls.

Sara had a choir concert this week - 3 nights in a row so that the whole community could come support them and enjoy the Showtunes.
It was a good time for sure

My hubby and I had gone to the first show on Thursday night, and then Caitlyn & I went on Saturday evening. Love laughing and talking with my girls. Each night we went to Burgerville afterward to celebrate Sara's great work and have a fresh Strawberry Shake.

I also celebrated my other little girl this week. 
Carly Taylor Felton
With us for just 4 1/2 months...It was her birthday this week. My hubby and I went yesterday to give her some pretty color at her grave.

While we were at the cemetery we also went to my grandparents site and spruced it up.
Grandpa Earl - he sure would have adored my girls. He never got to know them. 
Grandma Lou - she would have loved these brightly colored flowers and to hear of all the accomplishments we have all had.

I celebrate them all.

I hope that you all have an amazing week and that something makes you smile

#201 It was a good day - Happy Mother's Day :)

Happy Mother's Day to all you mom's out there :) 

We celebrated My Mom's Birthday & Mother's Day last weekend when she was here. It was weird not seeing her on the actual day of Mother's Day. My mom is the best mom. I was adopted as a newborn to this wonderful lady and what an amazing gift from God it was. I don't know what I would do without her. We talk everyday...sometimes for 5 min....sometimes for an hour. I cherish every moment with her. I love you mom :)

I hope that your day was everything that you wanted it to be. 

Some like gifts
Some like brunch
Some like a BBQ
Some like a massage
Some like quiet and relaxation
Some like flowers
Some like all of their family around

I think this year...I got a little bit of everything.

I got some beautiful flowers from both my dad and my husband

Caitlyn, Sara, and I enjoying some sunny weather in the backyard as my hubby smoked us some ribs for dinner

I love this family so very much. So blessed to get to spend my Mother's Day with them.

Thank you Ned, Caitlyn, & Sara for a perfect day.
