Mother's Day and More

I'm finally back to the blog world hopefully.  After two weeks of almost daily headaches/migraines, I'm taking advantage of being headache free today and catching up with my blogging.

Allan's parents came down for a week or so to camp at a nearby lake a few weeks ago.  I didn't get to spend much time with them because of the daily headache.  One evening they brought friends that were camping with them to see our new house.
We are always happy to have visitors come see our house project.  We then went to eat together and I took the friends to see our local cemetery while Allan's folks ran to Wal-Mart to get camping supplies.  Yes, I said, I took them to our cemetery!  Our cemetery is really a tourist attraction and I'll be blogging about that in the near future.  Anyway, we enjoyed our visit with them.

Colby came home for Mother's Day weekend and it was so good to have him home.  With Ashley's new job, she wasn't able to come this time.   We spent the day,Saturday, at our church lectureship/youth rally and it was really a great day!
After church, we went out to eat with my parents, brothers and their families for my dad's birthday.  We went out to their house after supper for presents.
 It's always fun for all the grandkids to get together. Again, we really missed Ashley not being here too.

4 year old C is one of the funniest kids!  He was pulling toys out of his backpack and out comes this PLUNGER!  Oh my, it was so funny! I guess it's best to always be prepared.  You never know where you might be when a plunger will come in handy!

Sunday, Colby helped me in my Bible Class.  They were WILD for some reason.  Maybe they were showing out for Colby because they are usually so well behaved.

We made handprint bouquets for their moms and grandmoms.  We ran out of time before we got the bows put on but they're pretty cute anyway!

Allan's parents came for church and lunch also.  We went to our usual Molina's!
Mom and I both got Vintage Pearl necklaces for Mother's Day and I also got a Vintage Pearl bracelet!  We love them!

It was great for Allan and I to celebrate Mother's Day with both of our mothers.  They are such special people and I thank God for them both!
Also, while we were at Molina's, our owner friend, Stevie,  had made special Mother's Day surprises for me and mom.  Stevie wasn't there that day but sent the 'surprise' with other family members.  They sent Stevie's 3 year old son in with our gift.  I opened it up and this is what I found.
The kids so graciously left us ONE chocolate covered strawberry!  I really think we must have gotten to the restaurant BEFORE they actually had time to finish this one off!  Oh my, we laughed so hard!!  We didn't let any of the family know what the kids had done.  I just couldn't do it! haha  I know Stevie was so proud of her efforts to make our Mother's Day special and it really is the thought that counts anyway. 

After church and lunch, it was time for Colby to leave.  I always hate to see my kids go:(
