Mothers Day 2017

Good day here. I worked hard on some Mothers Day items for primary and sharing time. We went a bit early to church, so Ron could help me set up the TV. I showed a great music video, "Choose Him Again". We made Mothers Day cards. "I toadly love you". (I saw the frog stickers at the store and had to purchase them- lol) Ron packed up our lunch to have in the car on the way home. I cooked dinner and Sam did dessert. Eli and Noah were super cute with the flower bouquets that they picked out for GG and me. Ron hung some flowers out side. (Now we have "hanging deer food".) Ashley is busy with company at their house. She bought the "stuff" for french toast and Daniel and the "boys" fixed that for dinner. Nathan fixed eggs, bacon, and waffles for Annie. Alex fixed dinner. (She is going crazy, trying to ready for the England trip/move.) Alison and Micah made ice cream cakes, and were selling and delivering those. Mike pampered Carrie all day ;) Of course Audrey and Sam were with us. The first photo is the best one I got, from the whole bunch.

What Have I Been Doing...

since Easter?

Seems like not very much :) Other than cooking, cleaning, and laundry.  I captured a few pics here and there. I have had a couple of "projects"- lol. We are in a pretty sorry, sad, situation, where mom needs help to get to the bathroom. Her days consist of sitting in the recliner chair, with her feet up :(
As a result of that, someone has to be here 24/7. When Ashley wanted us to come and stay with the kids...Ron had to go alone. I put all of the Easter decor away. And put out some "bird egg" decor- lol. I wanted something that looked like Spring.  Actually, I really like the  pale turquoise color in my living room. I found a new "animals-in-a-boat" artwork for my dining room. Our front flower bed is looking pretty good... not professional landscaping, by any means, but not too bad. Lots of blooming Easter lilies, and even more blooming weeds! I have been working on some mothers day photos for primary. And I made a cute photo album of Hazel, for Ashley's birthday. And...I may be in trouble for this one...but I decided to clean out "Ron's Man Cave" while he is gone. There will be weeping and wailing over not being able to find anything :) But when it's time to put the pool cover away...he might say thank you ;) I am not finished cleaning and organizing yet...I included one pic of the "mostly finished" room... at least all of the dust, mud, grass, bugs, cat hair, trash and saw dust are gone!

Happy Easter

I planned some activities just for Eli and Noah... not surprised?? :) I wish we could spend holidays with some of the other grand kids... but since Eli and Noah live close...they are spoiled- lol. I love our "non yard" yard, for Easter eggs. I put out 72 plastic eggs. (the boys know that I keep the eggs and they get what's inside) I filled them with nickels, dimes, quarters, and pennies this year. No way, am I doing that much candy. They came out right after church, so I had to hurry home and get a few last minutes items ready and get the eggs out. As soon as they arrived the boys jumped out of the car and headed for the buckets and eggs...I told them they just had to wait until I got GG outside. We also did a little egg coloring project. Since it involved shaving cream and food color...the boys took their shirts off. (Neither one of them liked getting their hands messy.) I did a few fancy decorations for dinner. I was hoping to have a picnic outside, instead of the traditional Easter dinner. But it was too hot, windy, and buggy outside. Ron said it was "too Texas" outside. haha We had chicken fingers, potato salad, corn on the cob, deviled eggs, veggie sticks, watermelon and cheese cake. I also had two small Easter baskets and a "Don't Eat the Peep" game. So we sugared the boys up good and then sent them home with Sam and Audrey- lol ... like any good grand parents and Easter Bunny would do.
