I am a Blessed Mom!!!

I had a lovely Mother’s Day!  The only thing missing was 3 kids and a grandbaby!

It started with my first gifts on Friday and Saturday (the pressure canner from SuperSoldier on Friday, flowers from SuperSoldier on Saturday and a nametape from Chief [he was excited and couldn’t wait!])

On Sunday I was very spoiled by everyone!  I had a nice, relaxing day, didn’t have to cook, and received some very nice gifts!  TheBoy gave me flowers, a balloon (he “went in” with the MadHatter on these) and a “baby” (doll.)  MilkyWhite made a nice card, remembering that I’m a mother many times over, some kit-kats and a handcrafted “MOM” bracelet.  MilkyWhite gave a lovely “suncatcher” angel that has “Mothers are alway there with laughter, love and care” inscribed on it (as well as the flowers and balloon.)  TheQueenofHearts gave me some yummy kit-kats and Tahoe cookies.  Chief gave me a lovely bouquet of flowers.  SgtSoldierSon and Mrs.SgtSoldierSon gave me a plane ticket to come and meet the baby later this month!!!!

As a side note, yesterday, I found the fabric I am going to be using as lining for my bag.  It is very, very simple.  It is plain fabric with a “natural” background and the words of the Pledge of Allegiance printed across it, making it almost look striped.  I thought it was just perfect!

Here are some photos!

    I must have my baby radar on! I have been thinking of you and I remembered your blog page. I scoured my old emails to find the page and am so happy to hear about the grandbaby coming any time now!! What a great mother’s day and what a blessed wife you are to have a husband that helps his children make Mother’s Day special! So good to get up to date on you and your family. Congratulations, Grandma! Grandkids are THE BEST!
    Love, Mimi
