Mother's day was a few days ago.

Mother's Day was a success in my neck of the woods. I was showered with gifts, cards, notes, flowers (thanks, mom-I mean... Sirmans children), appreciation, and a nice long nap. I was even told by Andrew that it wasn't my mother's day, so he didn't have to tell me happy mother's day. Bonus gift! Woot!
The kids made a peanut butter pie for Elaine, and I spent a good while trying to master my video editing skillz by making my mom some awesome home movies to show our appreciation to these two wonderful ladies. Making awesome home movies takes longer to perfect than I had once thought, so all my mom got was a small preview via email. (whispers "sorry mom") 
Once it's done (yea, it's still not done, so?) she will love it and it will be worth it. She doesn't mind the wait, or at least thats what she tells me. 
Mother's are wonderful. 
I hope all the Mother's in blogland had a lovely mother's day. 

A little vintage picture of motherhood for all of blogland to see:

In this picture, there are three beautiful girls. Each one has the privilege of being called "mom". The sleeping baby in the white dress is me, the woman holding, while looking adoringly down at that sleeping baby is my mom, and the woman looking proudly at her daughter, holding her first (and only. wink, wink, cheesey grin) granddaughter off to the side is my grandma Natalie. 

Now three women. Three moms. Three women who have respect for one another. Three women who know what the other has gone through in the journey we call motherhood. Three women who love each other unconditionally. 
Motherhood at it's finest.

Shoop! Love that picture. Sounds like you had a great day. Mine was awesome. I got a homemade mug from Ellie, felt flowers from Jack, a construction paper purse from Tycen and three flower pots from them that they made in primary. I made out like a bandit. And I didn't feel at all bad at getting myself Wendy's for dinner that day. That chicken sandwich was so good. Of course, most things taste better right after church. Why is that?

Love, love that photo! It is so good to see acquaintances at other times in their lives. Loved it, Gerri! By the way, we loved that peanut butter pie! Thanks, Emme
