For the 29th Time!.......

Happy Mother's Day! I'm not exactly sure I've told her that 29 times (well, without coaching from Dad) but Mom just had her 29th Mother's Day! I won't tell you how many my Grandmothers' had....let's just say it was more than 29. A lot more. Mom's Day is always fun....and non-stop.
Starts with me rushing out of mi casa...and back (forgot the hydrandreas for Mama) Montgomery. Grab a DC to wake me up for the drive. Speed (kidding M&D).
Stop #1: Lunch at Mimi and PawPaw's (Mom's 'rents--the Italians....) I swear it seems like there are always more conversations going on here than actual people. It makes me laugh. It's loud.
And by the way, this is me and my never fails we always seem to dress alike. Hmmm....
But of course, prior to lunch--we have priorities. Daddy must hang PawPaw's new mount....carefully PLEASE!
Finally it is time for lunch. Mama and Daddy had to beg to bring food. Mimi didnt understand the concept. She should cook. Family is coming, right? So what if it's Mom's Day. Thank goodness Jim N Nick's BBQ won out. But believe me there were sides of cream corn and butter beans. I am NOT complaining that she cooked just a little bit. This is PawPaw. I can only assume he is sizing up those desserts Aunt Nancy brought. He generally likes his homemade pies and Italian cookies. (note suspenders) Aunt Nancy is in charge of desserts and rolls a lot. She does a good job there. (Love you Auntie N! :)- ) I actually bring less than that. Stop #2: Dinner at Grandmother and Wes' (Dad's Mom...the Baptists). They are the quiet ones. Until the other cousins get there. They have hearing aids--I think they crank it down, or maybe its selective hearing.... Anyway, again NOT suppose to cook but before long I smell a turkey and I see Daddy carving something in the distance....Uncle Pat may actully turn into a cornstalk after as many as corn cobs he ate, and good gosh the casseroles!! Here's Grandmother and her grandchillin'...Shelby, Lindsey, her fave of course **me**, and Hunter. (Not pictured is my sweet sis, Jessie Messie who sadly was in Tally working at her church. She celebrated early with M&D). Now, I have to put this one in. I hope you can see this good. My cousin Lindsey pictured above, is a Junior at UA (BUT AN AUBURN FAN TO CLARIFY) is an Education major. She loves kids and kids love her. I can ONLY ASSUME that is why she has purple streaks in her hair right now. 'Cause the kids must love it? I'm on Team-Grandmother here, L. You're crazy! Only kidding're a nut, that's for sure. But I love you to pieces, purple hair and all!! Full belly. Leftovers in-hand. Hugs and kisses. And I'm on the road. I'd say it was a good day for Moms.

  1. A few items of interest to note:

    * Please tell your Daddy those are some NICE legs....and with the right training, and dedication to learning a toe touch, he could win a spot as a collegiate cheerleader with such balance & NICE legs. :)

    * Lindsey....a rebel after my own heart & purple just happens to be my favorite color....although I'm not putting it as my highlight color just yet....that can wait til I'm 80-ish. But I am thrilled beyond measure that you CLARIFIED the main issue....War Eagle!!

    * The food....good heavens, why don't you live closer to me....I'm a mom too...where's the love, and the BBQ, and the turkey and such?? :)
