Greetings from Virginia...

Words are failing me,  as I write about my wonderful Mother's Day with our sweet daughter and two of our delightful grandchildren.  Daughter and I awakend to this beautifully set table.  The china belonged to Carmela, my husband's mother.

The grand munchkins wrote out the menus for our brunch and even included lovely art work.

Grandpa is the chef and is cooking the yummy sausages and bacon for our repast
While grandson fixes coffee for his Mama
And now the party is over and Mama takes to the couch with Sophia for a little relax time


And look at this cutie patootie Grandma has her arms around, sigh 
Simply could not have been a more lovely morning...
I only wish all of my chick a dees could have been here as well. But for now they are spread all around the world. But in my heart they were with us as well.

XOXO
Catherine

Catherine,
That was the most precious tale! What a sweet and simple Mother's Day! I adore the picture of you and your grandson...you look young and wonderful and your grandson has the most soulful eyes. I always pick him out in pictures...very special boy!

Let's retire in Arizona and have an art colony! Like an art retirement home, We can all bring our supplies and put them all together and have one, big non-ending party!
Sounds fun, huh?
Hugs,
Suz
