Mother's Day

We found some blue paint under Levi's fingernails while loading him up in his car seat last night. If you want to know why, look below to see what I got for Mother's Day. It would have been much easier for Jocelyn and Karrie to drop by with the kids in tow and say, "Hi, Happy Mother's Day." But, only a grandma can truly appreciate what it takes to haul a bunch of kids to the craft store, after inquiring what they want to make for grandma, and indulging their creative whim to sculpture and paint masterpieces. I don't know how they managed to get all those little hands to cooperate. I could barely get a partial, smeared footprint when mine were babies. And Karrie, How did you manage FOUR colors? Anyway I truly love my tremendously crafty, creative, imaginative grand kids.

Thank you to everyone who came to make yesterday special. In addition to the grand kids, we enjoyed the company of Jocelyn, Oscar, Karrie, Gaye, Jimmy, David, Lindsey, Vickie, Leo, Mariah, Sarah, John, Becky, Nina, Ellen, Yvette, Anita, Randy and Gary. We ate, we talked about American Idol and who talked in church, and who's the new Gospel Doctrine teacher, and what the moms got at church, examined babies and made them smile, fixed computer problems, kept kids out of trouble (mostly), talked on the phone to family far away, noticed Ed's haircut, discussed Jimmy's beard, found out what Yvette's boys are up to, picked some cherries off the tree, distributed artichokes...you know, all the stuff families do on Mother's Day.
