Catching Up/Mother's Day

A week disappeared in a flash, what with working three extra shifts and then getting the house ready for 25 guests on Mother's Day.  It certainly left no time for quilting or stitching.  DH Grant and I moved around furniture for what seemed a good hour plus on Sunday morning, followed by the usual mad rush to get four big tables set with chairs and tableware, cook, clean up, and get ourselves ready.  We have hosted a Mother's Day Brunch for over 20 years at our house and I don't see it ending anytime soon.  Here's a few pics of the day: 

A galley style kitchen makes it easy to cram people in there--including my mom, daughter, niece and sister.  Everyone is generous in bringing dishes to share and we all ate til we were stuffed.

Hanging out by the waffle bar are youngest daughter, my brother, son, and nephew making a face.  Later I gathered my siblings and mom for a photo.

We're missing one brother from this group, but it was great to be together.  Grant and DD Erica had High Tea with his 98 year old mother at her senior living place the day before. 

Isn't this a sweet pic?  They had a lovely visit and Grandma was happy. 

And look what finally happened with all that moving and cleaning:
My cutting table was cleared at last!

What a great tradition (but a lot of work for a certain Mom). Family is so important and it is obvious that your family enjoys being together.
Oh, your pristine cutting table puts me to shame.
