Hey friends!!

Hope you're all having a wonderful Sunday!!

I'm having fun with my Mom & Dad, and as always, there's lots going on here =]

After a very nice brunch, we came back to hang out here at their house. My sister, Shannon, and niece, Alyssa were here as well. Within a few minutes, my nephew Bill stopped by & brought my sister & Mom flowers. How sweet was that?! He's my sister's 24 year old stepson, but she practically raised him, my BIL had full custody. Then, Adrian showed up to spend some time with my Mom- very unexpected & thoughtful!! He had been at his parents @ 45 miles away. So, we just visited & I played with Alyssa & then we decided to all take a walk. Next, My Aunt Mary showed up out of the blue to wish us a Happy Mother's Day! It was like Grand Central Station!! After our walk, Shani & Alyssa left, and our neighbor & good family friend, Rich, stopped by to say hello. LOL. What a day!! We just finished a late supper, and we're all exhausted.

Going to watch some tv & crash soon.

Hope you're all doing well!!

Thinking of you & your Mom's today.

{{{Hugs}}}

Later this morning, we made a quick dash to Wal-Mart. I ended up buying a hat to wear at Disneyland, some slippers, an over-sized bag that I will use as a book bag, AND I bought four MORE new outfits! Again, I am spending money "like I got it," LOL!!! Tomorrow, I will finish my organizing of the TV room and some scrapbooking stuff, wash all the bed linens, and finish last-minute cleaning so we will return from vacation to a clean house. I will still have time to rest and relax before heading out to Anaheim Tuesday morning. We are leaving for Chico in a bit to pick up some last-minute stuff for our trip. I have my list all ready. We will be having a special Mother's Day dinner before returning home. I want to make sure to charge all our phones and computer-related "stuff" and have time to watch TV before bed. Have a great rest-of-the-afternoon and I will TTYL. I hope all the moms are having a great day!!!
you sound so excited! Like any kids before headed out to Disney, you just cannot sleep, perfectly normal.
Have a fun and safe trip!

WOW... all those people that already planted the vegetable gardens and also just went out and bought all the flowers and such to plant already. They better either bring them in for the night or cover them up...

Me, I heeded my grandfathers advice, "wait until after the first week of May boy, until you plant any summer crops in the garden. We can always get a frost into the middle of May"...) Boy, talk about nailing it. You just cannot beat the wisdom of time and experience, can you! I love him!!!!

He will turn 95 in September and today he say's to me, boy, I think I'm starting to slow down just a bit...." lol, he kills me! I hope and pray that I grow up to be just like him at 95.....
here we know better than to plant before the May 24 weekend...or at least we should. Right now it is snowing and everything is turning white.

It's was a long day of cooking here. We had planned on going out for dinner but my mom and sister have colds after the concert the other night. So I ended up making Lasagna, breadsticks, and a salad for everyone. Then I made a pineapple upside down cake for dessert. It was pretty good. Now I'm wore out and getting ready to head to bed. Goodnight Everyone!!!!!!!!
