    Our Mother's Day didn't work out as planned and has had to be rescheduled for next Sunday. Amara spent the night on Saturday and the plan was to get up and we would fix her Mommy a special breakfast. That all changed when Amara woke up at 7 AM very sick and had to go home! SO we are going to do it all over again this weekend. Glad you had such a good one.Love the pictures!

    Well, my Mother's Day started on Friday and it took until 9:00pm Sunday evening but I finally heard from my seventh "kid". I thank them all for remembering me in their busy, hectic lives.

    Your crowd always looks so happy when they are all together; glad you had a good one, too.

    My highlight was having a stress free day after a busy Mother's Day season and spending time with my family. It was windy and cool in Chicago, but we decided not to let that spoil our original plans.

    My horses didn't win at the racetrack, but a good time was had by all. Afterwards, my daughters and I went out for dinner and drinks to enjoy some 'girl time' alone.

    This Mom was tired! I was sound asleep on the couch by 9pm. lol.

    Great pictures, Lisa! My highlight was having my sewing room painted. I told them that's what I wanted, and that's what they gave me!

    It looked like a very Happy Mother's Day at your house, Lisa!

    I had a wonderful day as I was able to celebrate with my son and daughter together for the first times in years!

    That my son in Germany called, that my daughters called and that my son in Eugene took the train up to see me and then took me to the Rhododendrum gardens just to walk around and take pictures and sit and talk. Time with them. Time with them.
