A Very Good Weekend.

I was feeling a little sorry for myself because it would have been the first Mother's Day without my 2 beautiful babies...and then I received a gorgeous bouquet of roses from my hija even tho she was in DC on a trip because that is how she rolls. She also sent me a big box of all kinds of fun presents...gracias again sweet hija. My Hello Kitty washcloths were my favs.


On Mother's Day my sweet hijo who is in Germany called me and we talked via web cam. He FINALLY took a picture of himself because I have been begging him to as only an anxious mother who hasn't seen him in 5 months could do. Look at the handsomeness.

....and then (still on Mother's Day) my friend Mike Redford came to visit me! Mike and I bonded our first year at BYU. He is the main reason I got D's in 2 classes ......extensive giggling and note passing ensued. We still giggle....
Mike hails from Philly....before that Boise ID.


He brought me flowers, made chocolate syrup and played Mormon hymns in a minor key so they sounded haunted. I can't think of a better way to spend Mother's Day.


Mike and Pegs


I dare you to be in a bad mood after viewing these. My grandchildren:

"I am sooo drunk from my milkies"

Dustin cracked up every time the horse would whinny.

That is all.

What a fabulous day you had!

Playing hymns in minor keys.... LOL... I'm so grateful for you introducing me to Mike years ago. We had some good times while he lived in Salt Lake.... and I've got the pics to prove it.

Dustin and Kayla are LOVERS. What is going on in that last pic of Dustin?? It's like he's saying "I stepped in WHAT!!"

Mike is such a sweetie. I can't imagine you two giggling through lectures at BYU...so hard to picture...

I want your Hello Kitty washcloths.

Dustin was LAUGHING hysterically at the horse, I took the piccys just in time.

Caca done and done.

Alli, you and Mike were destined to meet. Sort of like When Harry met Sally,

Hmmm.... in those pics, Griffin does look a bit like Mike.

Though he (Grif) looks a lot more like his dad.....
