Mother's Day 2012

I hope all of you enjoyed your Mother's Day.

I surely did.  It wasn't about the gift (cause my gift was Valentine's Day and Mother's Day rolled into one...)
it was about the serenity of the day.

We came home from church and grilled out.  I didn't feel like fighting the crowds at a restaurant in town.

After lunch I helped Evan get his LAST book report of the year out of the way.
(p.s.  I'm SO GLAD that is done!  For my son who is not a reader like I am, 4 book reports a year was killer for him.)

Then Evan and I went outside with Grace to practice volleyball before volleyball camp starts up again in June. (Dad was taking a nap inside.  Sometimes that's for the best...)

After that, I picked my own bouquet from my flower beds. favorite!
After that, I planted some pansies in the pots on the porch while Grace read on the lawn and Ev played DS on the porch beside me.

After I made sure Ev's lunch was packed for his field trip tomorrow, the coffee pot's alarm was set, the towels were folded, and my clothes were picked for work tomorrow, I went upstairs to my craft table.

It's been SO long since I had time to sit up there.  I turned the laptop onto the movie MONEYBALL and got to work scrapbooking.

I only got 2 2-page layouts done...but it felt good getting back in the groove.

Grace and Brent even washed the van for me.

It's been a great Mother's Day.  Very relaxing.  Very low-key.  I loved it.

Now, a Mother's Day for these ladies...a much different story.
When we counted last night there were 9 mothers and 16 babies!
Happy Mother's Day to all!
