Happy Monday -- Mother's Day Recap!

Hello Friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful Mother's Day!
Even with very stormy weather, it was a fun
day and I felt so loved!

Five years ago on Mother's Day!
Mother's Day is a little bittersweet 
without  my own Mom.  
I think of her and miss her every single day.

Cool ice sculpture
Mr. Tennis, Maddy, Connor and I went
out for a little brunch!

A balloon Olaf! 
Oh my -- I had a most delicious Cranberry Mimosa.
Cranberry juice plus Champagne -- perfect combination!
Such a healthy option, right! :)
Omelets and Belgian waffles,
bacon and pastries too!

Celebrating again next weekend with
Philip and Catherine and the littles!
Love to spread out a holiday, don't you!

Maddy and I 
went to the zoo later as the weather seemed to 
calm down.
Isn't she adorable in her Oswald  hat!
If you didn't know, Oswald is Mickey's rabbit brother!
Love that she wore the hat throughout the zoo!

Ooooh -- our bad weather returned in the evening, and
we found ourselves in the basement bathroom 
during tornado warnings!  Scary!
Yikes -- luckily, we only had severe thunderstorms
and heavy rain here.
Praying for all those who lost
their homes and sustained damage!

Adorable pictures! Cranberry mimosas...that sounds delicious....probably doesn't go with our pizza party idea for next weekend, huh? Bummer. That Olaf balloon animal is too cute! I love that precious pic of you girls with Pat. We thought of her yesterday, too. So glad you all didn't sustain any damage from that wild storm! Looking forward to celebrating and seeing you all next weekend. Have a great week!

I'm also loving the idea of cranberry mimosas. YUM! Glad you are spreading out the Mother's day love with family over several weekends. Your weather sounds scary. We've had wicked thunderstorms today but no tornado activity.

Maddy looks SO grown up in these pictures.. but I love how much of a little girl she still is- wearing her cute little hat everywhere. What a doll!

We love cranberry juice and champagne. We serve them on Thanksgiving; call them Poinsettias!

Let's get together next time......
