My Mother's Day



Yesterday was a wonderful day for me! (For those of you who don't know I am the mother of ten kids!)  Being a church day, the men of our little church served a moms day breakfast! Then for lunch, my youngest daughter and family took hubby and I out for Chinese.  At dinner time my oldest daughter invited us over for BBQ.  Later, we played a game--Mad Gab--with her family: the oldest against the younger--three of my grands and Katrine, our exchange student from Denmark.  The young ones beat us, even with a handicap! Also, some of my grands gave me roses, and, of course, I got lots of calls during the day, including a "Mother-in-law's" Day call from one son-in-law!  First time I ever got one of those, but it was nice! I love and appreciate all of my grown children and how they have matured.  It is such a blessing to enjoy the fruit of one's labor (not even mentioning their wonderful spouses and my grands!)

So here is a treat for you--I thought I would share all of their pictures from eldest to youngest. My prides (plural!) and joy! Obviously cannot show you all the family, spouses and grands, but tried to mix it up to keep it interesting!
