Mother’s Day Weekend

How was your weekend?    I hope everyone had a wonderful Mother’s Day spent with everyone you love best.    We had a full weekend of fun starting Friday night when mama was honored as the oldest “Pearl” at the annual Mother’s Day banquet at her church.    This year was the first time in 2 years all four of her kiddies were able to attend.     My brother from Kentucky drove in as well as his twin sister from Peachtree City, my other sister from Talladega and myself.

Here’s my mama looking all spiffy in the new outfit I got her.    Doesn’t she look happy and content?    Can you believe she’ll be 91 in June?    Yeah, me either!

My darling daughter and sweet granddaughter Taylor with my baby brother.    Haven’t seen him in almost 2 years!

Mama and her 4 younguns’ (from left to right Kim in black print dress, brother Kelly, me in white & gray and my sister Betsy in front)

I know my mom was over the moon happy that all her babies were back together even for such a short time.

Saturday morning I picked up mama from her assisted living home and we went to my sister Betsy’s place on Lake Martin.    (Husband was working a ball tournament this weekend).    Most of you know what  destruction was caused by the tornados that ripped through our state recently.     Fortunately my sister’s lake house was spared.     Saturday was an absolutely beautiful day to spend at the lake.

The kids had a ball jumping in and swimming all afternoon.   


Also, I’ve been busy working on some sewing projects.    A few weeks ago I made a slipcover for an ottoman in the sunroom and this past week I started working on FINALLY putting together some things for the master bedroom.     Here’s a hint:    slipcovered headboard and pillows…..



I hope to work on finishing the headboard this week.     Then I’m going to my best, best, best friend’s house Friday to spend the weekend with her!   


Happy Monday everyone!

I do hope there will be a tutorial for the headboard! I've been wanting to do one. Happy belated Mother's Day!
