I am wishing all of you pink sisters a fabulous Mother's Day! 

Do you have any plans?

Going out to eat, a bbq in the backyard, just resting the whole day?

Really looking forward to Mother's Day!  Our kids are coming and the grandkids, and between them and my husband, we should have a delicious meal on the grill.  I don't have to do anything except love on those grandkids!  lol 

My husband went shopping the other day, and, he said he had something very special for me, so, I am excited about that.  He is hinting, but, won't tell me what it is. 

I hope everyone has a happy mother's day!

Happy Moms Day to you Susie and to all of the pink sisters!  We're all going out to eat and then come back here to just sit around, talk and enjoy the rest of our day.  Cannot wait!

What are you doing Susie?

I already got a couple of big pots full of flowers for outside.  They're beautiful!  I am sending my Mom fresh flowers, a Mom's day bouquet. 

Weather permitting, we'll have a cookout here.  If it rains, we can always come inside.

Happy Mother's Day!

The weather might be a factor here too Jan, so, I've got the house cleaned and ready.  Actually, my husband has been helping me just incase.

Which is fine with me!  My hubby said I will be Queen for the day and I kind of like that!  I think I can carry that off.  lol

My family and his family are bringing tons of food, like always, and, we have 4 grills for all of the food, lots of alcohol and non alcoholic drinks and our yard looks amazing.  We've had a lot of rain and the grass is so green and my flowers are just beautiful.

I love having everyone here, I love celebrating with our families. 

I truly wish all of you the best Mother's Day ever!

We're getting all dressed up, going to church for a special Mom's day mass and then the family is going to a special Mom's day brunch.  I am so thankful that we are all healthy and can spend this day together.  I always love days like this!

Wishing you sisters a blessed day!

Going over to my mother-in-law's for dinner.  She is almost 86 and has a debilitating lung disease that is gradually going to suffocate her.  It is easier for everyone coming to bring one of the items on the menu and we just meet at her house.  Otherwise, she has to guess at how many tanks of oxygen to take with her -- plus whether or not to take her things for something she has to do for her breathing issues.  In the past we have had the dinner here.  (When my parents lived in the area, we'd have them come also, since the rest of my siblings are 200 or more miles away from here.)

Her house is big enough to accommodate who all may come.  My husband is one of 16 children, most of whom live less than an hour away.  So, it is not unusual for us to have 30-40+ come for something like this.  If the weather is decent, some of the gang will eat out on the covered porch that overlooks a small lake.  After things are cleaned up, those who want to play cards; if the weather is decent, the kids go outside to play; others of us just chill with some reading material.

We are taking my parents and in laws out for brunch.  There is a really nice restaurant that we made reservations months ago at as they are always booked way ahead of time.  It should be a wonderful day as always.

I think I'll be eating my way through Mother's Day too Sylvia!  lol

Happy Mothers Day!

Happy Mothers Day!  We are all cooking and taking everything to my Mom and Dad's house.  It will be a packed house, but, a fun house Sunday.  I feel so blessed to still have my parents and want to make any and every day for them always the best.  So on Mother Day I want her to feel special, just like she is.

Susie, your plans?

Hugs, Diane

Having family and friends over for a Mother's Day brunch.  It's potluck style, so everyone participates in bringing the good eats!  We expect over 15 guests at our house.  I am busy getting the house ready for tomorrow.  Wishing all the Mother's a day filled with regal moments!

Hugs & Much Love!

Had a good Mother's Day but it didn't turn out how we had planned.My daughter-in -law that was sick during Christmas and first of the year has been in the hospital for 3 weeks.She's having serious nerve problems.They cant get her meds regulated. Last Sunday evening I was called that my oldest son was in the hospital and they found  a large mass on his intestines.Emergency surgery the next morning.It was a stricture and his intestines were twisted. He's better.

Then the Viet Nam WALL was coming to our county the weekend.Myhusband is a Viet Nam vet(Purple Heart Recipient). We pondered on going.We Did but it was very painful for both of us. A guy I dated before he left was killed.I told him I was afraid something might happen.When he was killed I fell apart.The last look he gave me was a stare as if it was the last time.It's a look that I'll never forget. Then  My husband sees those who died and the ones he left behind who were killed and it breaks his heart.Then I hurt. He cried and of course I cry over my heartache and his.We pondered about going like I said and now not sure we'll ever go to another one. I will be visiting my friends grave in a few weeks and my husband and I will place flowers on his grave, his sister and parents grave.No one else does and it hurts.Oh we planned going to a Mothers Day Car Show since we had 2 in the hospital this week. The car show was out since it was only 50 degrees and very windy.No matter what happened it was a good Mother's Day. My 3 sons called to wish me a Happy Mother's Day and one son was able to come see us and brought me a box of candy. 

Hope Memorial Day is better.There's another car show and also want to have a get together and hope those that aren't well are doing better. We won't be wearing coats and my husband in his long johns.We've never been so fed up with the cold weather.In the 50's for 3 days and starting Tues in the 70's and 80's.Crazy weather.
