A day for Mothers.… Day 541 09MAY10

Today is the day we celebrate our Moms! Without them not only would we not be here but we would not be who we are. A Happy and Wonderful Day to all of the Moms in our life. Mom, Nonna,  Mary Ann, Renee, Alyssa, Alicia, and Jamie. The world is truly a better place because of your love!

Joshua slept in a little this morning and I puttered quietly around the house so as not to wake him. Jarrod and Renee had left for church and it was just the two of us. He awoke after a while and we worked on trying to decide what he wanted for breakfast. After a bit of debating he settled on a doughnut. Not exactly healthy but sometimes you just have to look the other way.When Renee got home the boys presented her cards to her and we all had a good laugh over the card Joshua had picked out. It was very funny and Renee really liked it. Renee decided to spend her morning doing a little Polish cooking and was busy preparing her first batch of bigos. It turned out really good! Not sure what the wine was for but it had Julia Childs feeling going on.
Not long afterward Scott arrived with Taylor and Avery for a little play time. Taylor wanted to hang out with Joshua since they did not get to play yesterday after church. The kids had a lot of fun and burned off several thousand calories in short order. Next to arrive were Jamie, Christian, Allie, Bella, and Spike. Add to that the fact that Scott had brought Tornado with him and we literally had a full house. Jamie is enjoying her very first Mother's Day and she is a wonderful mother to our precious little grand daughter. Jamie and Christian brought mom a nice cookie cake. After everybody left I ran a few errands while Renee rested and then worked on fixing the CD changer in my car. It decided that the last round of CD's I fed it were quite tasty and it did not want to give them back. In the end… I won. The rest of the evening was quiet and just easy going.  We got a nice late visit from Renee's mom after she got off of work. Tomorrow we crank back up for another week.

Hey Snuggle Monkey,

Sounds like all of you had a superb Mother's Day. I'm so happy to hear about all the hub bub in your house. It's wonderful to have family and friends together.

Hope the coming week is a little less hectic for you.

Keep kickin butt Mighty Warrior. You are my Champion.

Tons of Love, Hugs and Kisses,


ps as your Dad for me what kind of damage your Mom did to the bigos that they had to be repaired?
