Mother's Day pics!

I couldn't be with my kiddos Sunday - but there were good reasons for that. I was, though, lavished with cards and gifts and text messages and phone calls from them. THANK YOU, Will and Laura!! And I got a beautiful card from my mother. THANK YOU, Mother!

Here are the 2 dozen roses from my Sam...

This is my favorite part of the card...

At around 4:30 that day we went over to the Huffmans for a cookout. It was YUM and FUN! Unfortunately I did not get a picture of John cooking all the ribs and hamburgers and hot dogs. He is a master at that. Oh my yes.

Here are the pictures in the order they were taken:

Sara Elizabeth and I. We FINALLY got to meet!!

Here are Elizabeth and Andrew with Jennifer and Lauren, and little Heidi - the tiny 8 week old puppy at Jennifer's feet.

Here's Caroline coloring with her Uncle Mark...

Here's Sara with Elizabeth and Andrew...

Here are the two great grandmothers with Andrew. As they pointed out, the whole event couldn't have happened if it were not for them!

Here is John's little nephew, Asher, on the right. The little girl on the left is the daughter of a friend of the Huffmans. I thought they looked so cute together!

What a fun day.

OH! I love all the pictures! They did turn out well, didn't they? Your roses are beautiful -- that Sam, he's a keeper! I love what he wrote in the card.

What a lovely day we had!
