Such a sweet day ~

One advantage to having all the boys over for Mother's Day....
is that I did some much needed
housecleaning to get ready for them!!!

They don't care about the house but, I do :)
I want it to be clean, smelling fresh and always welcoming.

Sweet Brad was the only one that couldn't make it.
He had to work all day
and had tons of college homework due tonight as well.

Dennis prepared the most wonderful meal ~
chicken salad croissants,
homemade pimento cheese,
green pea salad,
hash brown cassarole,
tomatoes, onions and eggs.....
So, so yummmmmmm.

Look at this beautiful bouquet of roses, confederate jasmine
and the biggest pink peony from Brent, Emily and Clara ~

A gorgeous hydrangea bush from my sweet husband ~
I've wanted one so I can dry these beautiful blooms!!!

I have to show you, my baby ivy is growing!!!

And the sweetest gift of all....our little Clara has been taking
her very first steps!!!!

We all laughed though because she wanted the baby
cheese puffs in the can!!!!
Food is a motivator, right?

Here's a little video I want to share with you....
Clara's very first steps!!!!

Have a great Monday my sweet friends,
hugs and love,

Happy Mother's Day! I am so glad that you had a wonderful Mother's Day with your family!

But little Clara - OMG - can I tell you that I have NEVER seen a baby's first steps!?! It was enough to bring tears to my eyes. Yes, seriously! Good thing Romeo didn't see me ;)

Have a great week!

Happy Mother's Day Dawn,
Your family pictures are so precious. I love the look on Mom's face as little Clara is struggling to walk. It's priceless.

I'm so glad that you had such a special day. The meal that your Dennis prepared sounds delicious!

Dawn, oh my...Clara's first steps on Mother's Day! A dual memory! How special is that!

I remember our 2nd daughter's first steps were when I brought our Christmas through the front door into the house. She was so anxious to see it that she actually RAN across the room!

A belated Happy Mother's Day to you and your daughter.

There is NOTHING ever so precious as these short moments of delight with our children and grandchildren...oh, to be able to have them all on video, like you do here! Just beatiful!

Lisa said...

Oh Dawn,
Way to make me cry 1st thing in the morning. That little angel, those little sweet legs all woobly. I could die. And her looking back at Emily, like 'look Mamma, don't miss this'! Dennis can come cook for me anytime. He may need to soon, did you hear my voicemail? LOL The flowers are gorgeous, glad you had such a special day. You truly deserve it. BTW, those baby cheetos, we called em baby crack! My kids devoured them! Lisa
