Mother's Day 2009

Mother's Day was nice--though there was the usual mad rush before guests came to get things set up and the food all in order. Below is my Mom---my #1 Quilt Pin Baster--and me. Yes, we have the same gummy smiles, and somehow both ended up wearing green sweaters! The redhead in between us is a painting that Mom did some years ago. Isn't she talented?

This is E-1 modeling the hilarious gift The Boy gave me---A Snuggly! She is wearing it "mom" style. See how the nose must be covered?

And here is E-2 enjoying her lunch break from work. She was first to eat so looks a little lonely there! (Ugh, don't look at the carpet)

And here's the oldest of the offspring, with his faithful dog Russell (who is making some kind of a weird face. He's really a good looking red merle Aussie with half blue eyes).

We had 15 for brunch and ate french toast, waffles, mini egg omelets (baked in a muffin tin), croissants and fresh berries. It was nice enough for the patio table to be seated as well, even though it was overcast. The cool marine layer came back in a couple of days ago and helped control that terrible fire in Santa Barbara where 31 houses were destroyed and 47 damaged. They hope to have it fully contained by Wednesday. The afternoon I spent hand quilting G-man's quilt while E-1 watched the Laker and Dodger games simultaneously, wrapped up in the Snuggly! She gave me some soaps I had asked for and E-2 gave me a necklace and earrings. Later I did some more sketching for my Tonya words project, pulled some fabric for it, and ended the evening surfing quilting blogs for a long time. Altogether pleasant!
