Mother's Day 2009



I had the most wonderful Mother's Day! I was blessed to have all of my children in church with me on Sunday! Even after all these years, there's just something so special about being in God's House together!


The 3 of them got together and planned barbecue and all the fix-ins for lunch and we had so much fun.  After lunch a few of them "scattered" and took naps while Chad, Josh and I watched the National Geographic Channel.

Josh, me, Grace and Faith

(I am so sorry that my son-in-law was not included in this picture, but he insisted on being the photographer.)

I had to include THIS picture because it is so hilarious to me!

And, NO, Josh is not holding a giant stuffed animal! That's his "baby", Turk, his Labradoodle! He's getting HUGE, isn't he? (He reminds me of "Alf" -- if any of you remember who he is. Or maybe Mr. Snuffleupagus from Sesame Street -- if he only had a trunk!) lol

I am so proud of my family and I love them all so very much! God has truly blessed me with an awesome family. I can think of nothing better than having them all together in church and then spending the day at my house! 

Thanks for making it a wonderful day, guys!

That's it! He does look like Alf!! It was a wonderful day, and I agree...there's not much better than all of my family being in church and worshiping together. We are so blessed! I love you very much!

Great pictures! I LOVE that dog :) I'm glad you had a great mother's day too. Nothing better than being with family, huh? I saw your comment on my facebook wall about what we had for dinner tonight? It was an amazing recipe, petite shoulder in an incredible marinade. You'd swear you were eating filet mignon!! I'm going to put the recipe on my blog, it's so good!!

You are blessed to have such a wonderful family. I love to see your family pictures. I can't believe the Labradoodle! I do remember Alf. And I always thought I might like a Labradoodle, but I have a BIG white Golden retriever, and after seeing Turk I will think again. I to had a great Mother's day, because the day before, my Son Graduated from college, what a Gift! I'm working on getting all the picture's in order, to put on my Blog, I hope you will visit me too. Many more Blessings.
