Wordless Wednesday: Mothers Day Memories

In honor of Mother’s Day this past Sunday, I thought I would share pictures from the special day…

Planting the garden.

Flowers ready to be planted this week (the mums were given to all the “Mums” at Theissens, which I thought was really neat!)

I posed for a picture with the "kids".

It really was a lovely day.  The weather was beautiful and it was nice to spend a whole day together as a family!

A quick request for my fellow bloggers.  My friend Sleepy Bard over at The Insomniac’s Dream is a mistress of words.  If you have never read her blog (and are not easily offended by language or subject matter) now would be the time to discover something new!  Next week she is publishing a blog post about the weirdest places that you have ever written down an idea for a blog post.  Want to contribute?  Pen a paragraph or two about the strangest place you’ve written down a blog idea and the strangest place you have thought of a blog idea and send it to insomniacsdream13@gmail.com

Happy Mother’s Day!

Today is the day of the year when all Moms should be treated like royalty.

As usual, we’re running a little behind.  We have cards for my Mom, but didn’t quite get everything done in time to mail it.  We’ll get to see her next weekend though!

In the meantime, if you’re celebrating Mother’s Day by doing a little light reading, head over to Mommy Writings:  Daughter of Maat to read my second segment in her WAHM series.  I talk about having ADD and being in a family of ADD people!

And it wouldn’t be Mother’s Day without my favorite meme:
