|I feel like this is the opening scene to some depressing|
documentary about how a town fell apart after
the factory closed.
I do not remember this picture being taken. It is obviously from years ago because this is New Year’s Day and look at me NOT wearing a coat.
This I remember taking on New Year’s eve.
Nice pout face, Ellie.
|Not my finest moment.|
|I am burning that vest now.|
|Julie took this picture. So I blame her.|
For the love of Pete.
Why aren’t we locked up?!
Can you tell the girls love the Back to the Future movies?
I LOVE this!!!
Oh my goodness, this is great!
This is the picture of McDaniel’s climbing wall cleat burn on her belly from the brand spanking new playground that my dad built the girls when Ellie was just born.
And yes, McDaniel used a permanent marker so it is still on her belly.
|Remember those Boppy nursing pillows?|
I just loved this gift!!!
And I got a note with a drawing of a pair of rain boots that I can order since apparently there are none left in the city. Something about the torrential rains we’ve been having and the fact that it is Spring.
We picked up Monte’s mom and went to church and then our favorite brunch spot for Mother’s Day.
This place has the most amazing food buffet style.
And we get free pictures taken every year too.
As Monte likes to put it, he likes to “win” at this buffet.
You know, make them sorry that they only charged what they charged because
CLEARLY they lost money on the deal when Monte walked up to the carving station.
Everyone needs goals in life.
When Monte took his mom home,
she showed him a momma duck and her new little ducklings that had managed to nest in the courtyard of her nursing home.
Isn’t this just the sweetest picture for Mother’s Day?
Since dinner was most certainly not going to be an option after that wonderful brunch,
we went to the theater to see “Moms Night Out”.
It started off slow for me but boy did it pay off. I laughed, teared up and fell slightly in love with Trace Adkins’ character, Bones (complete with neck tattoos).
Patricia Heaton is stellar in this.
I highly recommend.
Overall it was a great day!
Just wish I could’ve spent it with my mom.
|Me and Mom circa 1987 at a high school football game. I love this|
picture because it shows we have the same profile.
Hope everyone had a great Mother’s Day!!
