Mothers Day 2008

Well, we were traveling (as you have seen from the previous posts) this weekend, so Mother's Day was not celebrated like I would have liked. Cory I guess decided that you only celebrate Mother's Day for your wife if you are at home in your own house....(I'm not real sure on this logic - but I'm trying to figure it seems like a BIG cop-out to me - but I'm trying to figure out something better - so I don't stay mad at him....)

Anyway - even though my being a mother wasn't celebrated, we still got to see Cory's mom that morning and tell her we loved her, and she did give me a great book that I'm really excited about reading. We also got to spend some time with my Grandma Marilyn on our way home too. She has recently moved into a care-center, and it was great to get to spend some time with her so that she knew that we were all thinking of her and love her. We sat outside in a pretty gazebo they had and enjoyed chatting.

Oh - and I can't say that I didn't get anything for Mother's Day - Gabe did pick me a "Daffodi-lion" (aka dandy-lion). Then he proceeded to rub it all over his face, which created quite a yellow mess. It made me laugh at least :)

Sorry your day wasn't celebrated in the way you may have wanted...but, it looks like you had a fun weekend. Maybe you can look at the whole Idaho trip as one big Mother's day gift and celebration.

Thanks for visiting Grandma M on behalf of all of us. And for posting the pictures.

Love, Mom and Dad

I took a few years for Brian to realize that he was supposed to spearhead the Mother's Day celebration. He always says that I'm not HIS mother. So - just lovingly teach him how you want Mother's Day to be celebrated for you and eventually, he will learn.

I can tell from the light in her eyes that Grandma M had a great Mother's Day weekend because of your visit. LOVE YOU, Aunt Charlotte
