The Truth Can Now Be Told

Remember a few days ago, when I said I was "chillaxin?" (there, I said that word again!)


Truth be told, I kept it a secret because it was a Mother's Day present for my own mom. See, a week ago today I called her and said I was arranging for delivery of her Mother's Day present on Wed. Would she be home?

She said yes.

Well, the present

I surreptitiously planned a little flight up to SLC and presented myself at her doorstep around noon on Wed. and said "Happy Mother's Day!" I didn't want to share on my blog because she reads it daily and I wanted it to be a surprise.

She was quite pleased. She didn't have a heart attack or anything like that. (whew) She wasn't worried about meals, or beds or anything. (Maybe because I brought her some fresh squash from my garden!)

But it was super fun surprising her, spending time one on one with her and visiting the fun places I love to visit when I'm in Provo and I even got to spend a day with my Sis in SLC, doing girlie stuff..thanks for the bed Gin.....sorry I left so early!

And now my mom is all set up to post on all the family blogs, so if you see a comment by GGMA, that's her! (Actually I think that "handle" is really cool---especially when you are 80 something years old!)

Now here's a few photos to share from my own Mother's Day......The kids made me a DELISH meal!
We have a full "kids" table! (where I am going to put 3 more????)

My chickies are all back in the nest (so to speak) and I wanted a photo of all of us together finally after two years!

Well......let's try again.....Mom!Wait! Try again. (somebody probably farted)

Toooo far away!

Sheesh, there's one in every group! (you know who you are!)

And after about 15 tries, that's better!

that's AWESOME!!!!!! For family photos someone is usually muttering under their breath "Ya'll better smile and knock off the crap or you're going to be grounded!" or something to that effect. lol

You have a beautiful family!

Hey, at least you finally got one that could work. You would think that with adults it would be easier. Some times it is much harder!!!

Patrice said...

Oh, they are too cute for words . . . even the adults! What a fun mother's day surprise.

Lori said...
