My family is so awesome. I had a wonderful Mother's day weekend! On Saturday Janae, Chantel, and I drove to Yakima Washington to pick up a kitten that Janae wanted to add to her family. Such an adorable little thing! Visiting the breeders home made me really miss my Persian breeding days. We had such a fun road trip! Chantel says she wants to be a "guest blogger" on my blog and blog about our trip--so I think I am going to let her. We'll see how that goes:)
First, I have to share this picture that Janae staged today of her animals, and ours in a whiskey barrel that I had planned to plant petunias in this weekend. Good thing I hadn't got to planting them yet! Daisy and Dafney are having a bad hair day (it has been so hot!) but the picture is a keeper. How cute is that?!
This picture makes me smile!
This morning the kids got up early made breakfast for themselves and Gage (scrambled eggs) and then cleaned the kitchen! They didn't bother to make me breakfast because they know I never eat breakfast, I know I should. Then they gave all the dogs baths--that's a big job around here! I couldn't believe it. What sweet kids! The kids also got me the cutest gift. They paid for it and got it themselves. Here it is...
Then you push the button and it slowly opens...
I will cherish this. I love it that they picked it out themselves.
Janae got me a lovely bouquet of roses, a bottle of chocolate expresso wine, and the burn out velvet I have been wanting to recover that chair I recently bought. I was so delighted!
Jerry had to work today but brought me flowers and made a lovely dinner for Eileen and I when he got home. He made us ribeye steaks, his famous sesame noodle salad and asparagus. It was delicous! It was so fun spending the day with Eileen and the kids. Eileen bought me a huge basket of petunias. I love it, she certainly didn't have to do that. She is such an awesome friend! I will post a picture of the basket soon.:)

Then we went and visited my Mom. I made her some market bags with the kids picture on it (and one with my nephews picture) to match her cart liner I made.
I made a melted rose with white polyester for one of them--
They will look so cute when filling them with groceries and putting them in the cart!

Tonight I took some portraits of Janae and her babies.
Our photo sessions don't always go as easy as they look!
I also wanted to get a recent picture of Sassy and Janae. We got Sassy when Janae was 5 I believe--they are long time friends. We don't know how much longer Sassy will live but she has been a part of our family for so many years!
My wish is that everyone had a really nice and emotionally satisfying Mothers day like I did. I can't wait to read everybody's posts!
Thanks for visiting!
