Mother’s Day

What a wonderful Mother’s Day.  I spent the day with my family.  First, my church family.  The men of the church gave all of the ladies a day off.  From the organist to the choir.  Yes, we had an all male choir.  That was a first.

Second, lunch with my husband’s family at his mother’s house.  I think there were about 30 members present.

Third, a long afternoon with my mom.  While at her house, my brother called in from Ohio.  I got to talk to him for a long time too. I made mom a special Mother’s Day quilt.  All of the hands are tracings of us kids, spouses and my two kids.   She really liked her gift.

My son surprised me with a spa package that they put together in his 3rd grade class.  Bath salts, an oatmeal soak and a facial of fresh mint leaves.

The husband and daughter gave me a really great gift.  A gift certificate to my Local quilt shop.  He is starting to support my hobby (addiction) more and more all the time.
