SUCH a Great Day

I had such a lovely Mother's Day....did you?  That is, of course, assuming I have any readers left out there....aside from family.  'Cause ya' know, my posting has been a little um, sparse, shall we say these last few months?

The morning started out with Peanut giving me a precious little hot pad she made in her preschool class.  She brought it home on Thursday all wrapped, where upon arriving at home, she hid the gift (I still don't know where she put it--but it's not like I went looking for it either) and then asked me each morning thereafter if it was Sunday yet so she could give me my surprise.  Seriously?  She did it just as her teachers told her.  It just doesn't get much better than that. 

She even did the same with a cake that she decorated for Grandma the day before at the grocery store.  We put the cake in the cabinet where we knew Grandma wouldn't find it and Peanut went and found it all by herself Sunday morning to give to Grandma.  She was SO proud of herself!

Peanut and I went to church a little later on Sunday morning where she made a sweet little craft that had her hand prints on it and it said, I love my mommy because..........she makes me yummy food.  The bold words of course, are straight from Peanut's mouth.  So cute and even a little flattering as well. 

Even though my track record for the past few months has been less than stellar

However, that would be a post for another day. 

I had planned on making my mama a nice meal because I haven't been able to celebrate Mother's Day with her for the last two years.  Then late last week, we decided to switch it up and celebrate with my uncle and aunt and cousins.  The forecast said it was supposed to be gorgeous (it was--a little hot even!) so we had a big old barbeque and made a day of it.

It was glorious.  

And the icing on the cake?  My dear, sweet, hard working husband even got off work a little early (an hour and 15 minutes early!!!) and made it home to celebrate the rest of the day with us.  My friends, that was such a wonderful present for all of us--especially for the Peanut and I. 
We ate some amazing food (what family gathering is complete without good food?) and the ambitious ones even had quite the horseshoe tournament going.  No, I would not be one of those ambitious ones.  I have no hand eye coordination whatsoever, and quite honestly, no desire to work up a further sweat in 89 degree heat.  Plus, as with my first pregnancy, I have officially joined cankle-dom once again, so I took full advantage of the opportunity to put my fat little feet up on Sunday. 

It was a wonderful day.

I'm so glad that you had a wonderful Mother's Day! I love your shirt. Where did you get it? I'm due in October so I am going to need some summery maternity shirts before long.
