Happy Mothers Day?

Wow, What a Weekend this has been. Friday night I got off early so Icould come home and finish prom dresses. (I didn't finish!) We spent most of the evening up at the High School helping with the fund raiser dinner for D1's tour. On the way home we found out about our neighbors and spent the rest of the evening over there. About 11pm I went down stairs to finish prom dresses. (I didn't finish!)

Saturday morning came bright and early as we had to be to the church at 7am for the YW fundraiser. Then we played Basket ball. (Something I haven't done in years and let me tell you I feel it today!) We left our building to go to the other building and attend the Stake Mother Daughter Activity. That was so fun and D5 and I had a great time just hanging out and visiting with friends.

Then it was time to get serious and finish those dresses. (this time I did with about one hour to go!). Then our house turned into a salon for D1 and D2 and BF! We did hair, make up and nails. With 5 minutes to go before D1's date arrived she put on her dress (had never tried it on) and guess what? It was a tent! Way to big for her skinny little waist. We were still up in our bedroom, me in tears, her trying to comfort me while pinning all the seams. She still looked beautiful and off she went. Dad took her photo.

We went back upstairs to help D2 put her dress on and guess what? It was to big also (not as bad as the first but still large). Again I was in tears trying to pin her seams in when her date came. She also looked very beautiful and left with a big smile on her face.

Another photo.

With them gone hubby and I ran out and picked up chines and hurried home to help D3 get ready for a regional dance. We had signed up as chaperons and so we all left together.

After the dance sometime around 11 Hubby took me to Walmart and said okay what do you want for Mother's day? It took me about 2 seconds to answer. A big BarBQued Steak and a 2 hour nap.

Today after church I got a 3 hour nap, a big Juicy steak and a clean house. It was the perfect day!

Happy Mothers Day Everyone!

The big fishing trip

For only son's birthday this year, he didn't want a party, he wanted a fishing trip. So last week hubby, only son and BF went to the Jordonal and had a blast. They all caught 3 good size trout that are all now sitting in our freezer! (Yum, I like fish SOOOO much better than duck.)

You can tell by the smile on thier faces how much fun they had!

New Furniture

Yeah! We finally got ALL of our new front room set. We ordered it almost a month ago and the tables were on back order.

Now I just have to decide if I want to stick with the brown, black, Purple color theme or go with the brown, black, Red Theme.

What do you think?

So Saturday was National Scrapbook Day. (it's almost as good as Christmas-okay not really). I had to work. I taught 3 full classes and had a lot of fun but it was a long day and I didn't get to do any playing myself.

Sunday, after teaching a lesson on finding balance in life and taking time out for yourself, I decided to take my own advice and play for a couple of hours after the kids went to bed. (the little ones - I never out last those older girls!)

Anyway here are a couple of layouts I did. Nothing fancy but I was so excited to play for a while I thought I would Share.

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

So Sad

So yesterday was result day for SBOs and.... Daughter 3 did not win. But you couldn't tell it by her attitude. She called me on the phone all excited and then said guess what mom I didn't win but AM (a good friend of hers) did.

I need to be more like this dear girl. For her the glass is always 1/2 full. I am very proud of you girl.

My only son

Today is Only Son's Birthday.

I can't tell you how much I love this little boy. He is different from his sisters in so many ways. He loves his mom and even though he is to big for kisses in front of his friends, he makes sure I am taken care of.

He will open my door (something he has learned from his dad), help me off the sofa (I am getting old but not that old-yet!) and he is the only one of my children who still wants tucked in at night.

I am so grateful to be a mother to this wonderful young man!

Happy Birthday Son. I love you!
