Mother's Day 2009

This is the day when we honor our Mothers for all that they have done and continue to do for our families. So, in our home we try and make Mom feel very special on Mother's day.
The breakfast that we had planned for breakfast time took place for lunch instead as we all slept in later than expected this morning. We had scrambled eggs, hashbrowns and low fat turkey sausage. What a yummy meal !
Last night I had stayed up late making cards from he girls. Very simple but thoughtful - take a colored sheet or card 8 X 11 size - fold in half. Then a cute photo picture of each girl 5 x7 size affixed with school glue to the front of the card . The inside message was typed on the computer, printed out and then affixed to the inside of the card. This means so much more to Mom than simply buying a generic card at the store and the photos look so cute on the front of a card.
For dinner we had the in-laws over and a menu of chicken, roasted potatoes, green beans, lima beans and brown gravy with homemade peach pie and cool whip for dessert. Then the two guys did all the dishes while the ladies visited in the family room.
An hour or two of visiting and this was a perfect Mother's Day !
