Celebrate Good Times

 Yesterday was my mom's birthday! 
It would be bad manners to tell you how old she turned this year, but I will tell you LAST year she turned 64.


 The gang, minus Marcus, because he had the stomach bug! He just stayed in our room all night, or maybe the other room too, if you know what I'm saying.
 Our plan was to have a picnic, because it's April. And the weather is beautiful in April right? 
A cold front came through during the day and dropped the temps to freezing cold degrees, plus rain!

So we had the shindig at my house, but we still had picnic food. Our chef had the stomach bug, so we let Chicken Express make our dinner. I added some fruit to be a good hostess.



 I also need to include my parent's anniversary dinner that we had last month. 
43 years of wedded bliss....and a little bickering.
 Grandparents with their grands:
 And with their favorite daughters and grands:
Morgan, Ryan, Kelly, my mom, Katie, Me, my dad.

Katie and I enjoyed a PJ day today.  We have just been so busy, we needed a day at home. I don't like busy. I know some people wear "busy" as a badge of honor. For me, all the important things and people in my life are neglected when I'm too busy. I want to keep my priorities straight. 

Sometimes my priorities are watching The Voice, but that's not the point.

Happy birthday to your Momma. My Momma would have turned 62 this Saturday. I wish I could have picnic food with her. I think she would enjoy have enjoyed that!!

I hope your hubs is feeling better. That is the worst kind of being sick if you ask me!

Have a great rest of the week.
