A lovely Mother's Day

It was really a lovely day today...the weather was absolutely perfect, 75 degrees, not a cloud in the sky, the family together, lots of love and laughter. After church we all met up at my parent's house for turkey dinner and celebrated Mother's Day AND Alli's (DD#2) birthday. We had a great time...

We took a four generation picture, which I have posted here....My mother is a first born daughter, I am a first born daughter, Amy (DD#1) is my first born daughter, and Alana is Amy's first born...4 generations of first born daughters....quite incredible if you ask me!

My family showered me with gifts this year...John got me a beautiful heart necklace with three diamonds inset (for my 3 daughters); Alli and Chris got me a little book and a wonderful teapot, Lizzie and Amy and Max all brought me flowers...I feel quite spoiled! This evening after we came home, John mowed the lawn and I sat and stitched on Alana's birth sampler while watching a movie on TV, Must Love Dogs. Very cute movie! It was a wonderful day!

So glad you had such a wonderful Mother's Day, Connie! The weather this weekend was so gorgeous and I'm loving having my morning coffee out on the deck again.
However, starting today, the heat is on!

What a great picture. I love the first born daughter theme-being one myself :-)
Your mother's day sounds like it was a wonderful and special one.
