Mother's Day: The good, the bad and the ugly

  • Saturday night, Andy and Fisch took me out to a fun dinner and gave me this fabulous new video camera!!! This little guy is so portable and easy to use, I'll be posting videos!

  • Sunday morning, Fischer and Andy made a delicious french toast breakfast for MamaBetsy and me. Yum!

  • Sunday evening, we had a tasty barbecue at MamaBarb's and Grandpa's house. Yum again! Grandpa grilled up some fabulous pork steaks and chicken. Fischer made salad, fruit salad and ice water. Andy made his famous potatoes. Mmmm.

The BAD:

  • The beautiful watering cans that I bought for MamaBarb, MamaBetsy, and Great-MamaPearl leaked and warped when I filled them with water and flowers the night before. Yikes! Why in the world would someone sell metal watering cans that don't work? Seriously, they must have been just for decoration. I'm going to have to return them this week. So... we had nothing to give our moms and grandma on Sunday! Grr.

  • Sophie treed the neighbor's cat when she wandered into our yard. When Andy tried to rescue her, she went up, up, up till she was clinging for dear life to a spindly branch about 20 feet in the air. The poor thing was stuck there for about 6 hours!

  • Andy got really sick after dinner, and had to go home before Fisch and I.


  • After dinner at my parents' house, Fischer went downstairs to watch sports with Grandpa. Well, Grandpa fell asleep while they were sitting together... and guess what happened?

I am very thankful for my beautiful boy and my wonderful hubby. Thank you for a great Mother's Day!

I know! Seriously, if we ever want my dad to babysit, we'll have to send Fischer with a case of Red Bull to keep Grandpa awake!

Did someone say potatoes? Recipe?

Your day sounds wonderful... a good pair of guys you have there! And sorry about your gift debacle for your mom and MIL... that stinks.

PS... I was waiting for the phone to ring at 8:45 tonight. I mean, I was right in the middle of Grey's Anatomy and no phone call from you? You're off your game.
