Mother's Day

What started off as the weekend in the ER turned out to be a really fun and beautiful Mother's Day for my daughter and me. I bought her these fabric flowers made by blog friend and textile artist Terry Busse at the Whole Earth Fair earlier on Saturday morning... My daughter loved them! (More about Terry's art on Tuesday's Post) My grand kids and I did our usual art making together and my Gd-daughter insisted that I make a collage for "your daughter" so I did! My sweet little grand daughter did all the writing on the card for me! She could write everything by herself and only needed help in how to spell Grandma Lynnie. She can write I love you all by herself. My grandson got into the art making too and this drawing and frame he made himself for his mom. Here is is carefully writing To Mom, Love, A... Grand daughter is playing with the Grandma Lynnie and Grandpa Fred dolls I knit for them a year or more ago. She loves to dress them, and they got new sweaters this weekend. Mother and son in a loving moment Grand son and Grandpa looking at his baseball cards. Grandson knows all the names of the players and introduces most of them to his grand father. Grandpa and grandson play Grand daughter shows off the fabric and drawing art she made herself. the girl is standing on a hill. Grandson and Grandpa now shooting some hoops. A lot of blocking and laughter went on there. Grandpa got a real workout. Daughter braids her daughter's hair. Uncle looking on. Uncle looking much better than earlier in the day...Home from the hospital and feeling lots better, thank you all for your kind comments and concern. We had a lot of fun as you can see. While I was reading to the kids later before their bedtime both DH and my brother were sitting on either side of us sound asleep in chairs snoring away! They had had a long day. Needless to say, the kids went down easily and I was a very very very happy grandma after a long day too. We spent the night so we could check on my brother this morning, he was fine, just a little tired out from his ordeal. We went on to check out some art supply stores before coming home. More about that later: I cleaned up big time! Wait till you see!!!!


  1. Looks like you had a WONDERFUL weekend. minus the scare of your Brother. Was nice to see him in the photos to know he is doing ok.
