Mother's Day was incredible. I adore my mom so much! She has always gone above and beyond for her children, trying to help us in any way she can. I am lucky to say that she is one of my best friends and I want to learn how to do all of the amazing things she can do!...knit, crochet, sew, cook, sing like the angels!, calligraphy, draw, decorate. You name it! Also, I love being a mom. Yes, it makes me very emotional because I love Caroline so much, but is there anything more tender? I tried reading "Love you Forever" (the book with the little boy playing in toilet paper on the cover) to Caroline and couldn't get the words out, just tears. This is my favorite job ever!!
It was so fun to be together on Mother's Day. The kids enjoyed playing outside in the nice weather and relaxing on the hammock.

The grandkids also did the tradition of making popcorn with Grandpa. They have a little ritual that the kids make sure stays the same every time. Caroline now pulls out the popper at home and after it is popped she says, "Budder" because Grandpa really likes his butter!

The day ended with the enjoyment of the chocolate fountain and watching Corinne and Clark get into a chocolate brawl. It was quite the show and both of them ended up with big chocolate smiles on their faces after!

I love this tribute to your mother. She is an awesome talented and constantly making wonderful memories for her family. I'm glad I'm not the only one who can't get through "Love You Forever"--I used to think I needed therapy! I'm so glad my granddaughter has you for a mother. I love you for everythingl you do for her and our son. Like mother, like daughter. XO
