Mother’s Day

A very happy and beautiful Mother’s Day to all you mom’s out there, but especially to my Mom and Grandma 🙂

I love my mom and grandma and all they have taught me. My Grandmother started me on my love of baking and encourages me to stick with my faith when my fears set in. She is helpful to others even when it inconveniences her and she is just fun to spend time with. Our favorite activity outside of baking together, is playing cards (watch out she cheats 😉 ). My mom showed me many parts of the world letting me travel a lot when I was younger and always told me I could do whatever I set my mind to. My mom and I like to do projects together, sew together, go shopping together, and just like to hang out and have fun. Speaking of fun… since it’s mother’s day I thought I would share a few photos of our baby chicks first day out in the real world…

The other day we took them out while we built a new chicken tractor (more on that later). We put the baby chicks near the house as there was plenty for them to hide under and allow them safe space for sunning….

We kept a close eye on them to make sure they didn’t get into anything that would hurt them, but they did really good 🙂 Overall they got used to being outside and their adventures since have been easier for them (more on that later too). 😉

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY! Hope your day was a blessing 🙂

Happy Mothers Day Mom…

We had an exciting weekend. I took my mom yesterday to the farmers markets in the morning and before lunch surprised her by taking her to a Celtic festival where we ate and saw a lot of neat things. After the festival we took her to a seafood restaurant for dinner, as she loves seafood. I was hoping to make it a special one day early mother’s day as she had to travel home today after church. She seemed to really enjoy what I had found for us to do and my step-father was a good sport enjoying these things with us.

In years past I haven’t had time to plan anything really good for mothers day or there hasn’t been anything good going on… so it was nice to be able to plan a nice day for her 🙂 Happy mothers day to all the Moms out there and a very special Happy Mothers Day to my MOM 🙂

Happy Mother’s Day!

It’s that day again… Mother’s Day 🙂 A day we get to thank our moms and grandmother’s for all they have done for us. To all mom’s/ grandmother’s, biological, adopted, found, like- a-mom, and animal mom’s (puppy moms, etc.)… Baxter, Chase, Hubby, the chickens, and I wish you all a … HAPPY MOTHERS DAY 🙂Yellow TulipTo my mom…Thank you for all you do… I love you… Happy Mother’s Day 🙂

Special Mothers…

I am happy to report my Mom said I gave her a happy Mother’s Day 🙂 The yellow tulips above are flowers my hubby brought home for her at my request (what a great guy). We had a nice weekend with nice warm (today hot) weather. Yesterday we went to the farmers market, yard sales, and a book sale.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We then worked in the garden. I have some lovely tomatoes starting…

 

 

 

 

 

 

Today after I made mom an omelet for breakfast (her favorite thing for breakfast) we finished up the plants that needed to go into the garden. I then made lunch for her of BBQ chicken (with my homemade BBQ sauce), potato salad, deviled eggs (curtasy of “the girls”), and from the farmers market pickled beats, pickles, strawberries, and pickled okra.

 

 

 

 

 

 

The dogs hung out under the table and waited for scraps to fall…

 

 

 

 

 

 

It was a nice weekend and the weather held out… it is supposed to rain for a few days this week so I am enjoying the last of the sun. I will leave you with this final photo and wish…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Happy Mother’s Day Mom… Love you 🙂

Pre Mother’s Day…

Since this weekend will be busy for most of us since it is Mother’s Day I wanted to send out a shout to all my followers and viewers who are mother’s of  kids and dog’s alike…

Since we have not been blessed with children yet I consider myself a puppy mom and look forward to sharing this weekend with my Mom. We have a few things planed including a lovely picnic on Sunday if the weather permits. This way her granddogs can come along to share in the celebration. I will try to remember to get photos to share.

It has been one of those weeks that I am glad it is over and the weekend is here… I wanted to share some photos that remind me of mother’s day and hope you all enjoy.

 

I hope you have a blessed Mother’s Day Weekend with many special memories 🙂
