So we dedicate one day a year (what's up with that, once a month would be doable, don'cha think?!?) to celebrating mom's, grandmom's, great-grandmom's...etc.
Yesterday, amidst all the arguing...it started with who was going to be making me toast (I quickly requested more for breakfast to even the serving field)...my little Frumpy House Family treated me w/ special treats & some quality quiet time!!
Went to church where the girl's were involved in a little Mother's day program & handed out carnations...sweetness!!
After church, I was dispatched to home, the girls & Greg headed into town to pick up ingredients for a Mother's day dinner!
I was instructed to "STAY IN YOUR ROOM, DON'T COME OUT" (sometimes my kids have a yelling problem)!!
Gladly I lolled around in bed w/ a good book & a nice restful nap!!
At 4:30 I couldn't wait anymore...it's a good thing the Frumpy Restaurant and Jazz Cafe opened @ 5 pm!!
Greg & the girls had gone all out; inviting grandma & grandpa, an auntie, as well as mom. After a couple more quick phone calls they procured 2 more guests for dinner...our Pastor & his wife (whose sons live with their families down in IN).
Here's how it all went down...
Grandparents have arrived!! The barefooted hostess leads them to their seats...
Dinner: starts with salad course, then spaghetti & garlic bread as the main course, choice of 4 deserts to satisfy your sweet tooth!!
Lauryn was a busy server...she made sure to ask each person what they would like to have for drinks, or if they were ready for their next course!!
Busted!! This hostess with the mostest, finished seating people & promptly pulled up a chair & enjoyed her dinner while big sister continued trucking food out of the house to the "cafe"!!
Ah!! My man...the father of my children, without him I wouldn't be a mom!! He shopped, baked, cooked, manned the iPod for the best jazz music @ the cafe!! He found out a bit of what it's like to be a mom, eh?!? The man of the Frumpy House came out when all were done & enjoyed his meal while visiting with us!!
L baked a cake with dad's help. Li made "cookies"....toasted "Slimwich" with pretty frosting & sprinkles...not too bad!
I don't know what the amount of money was spent on groceries for this wonderful Mother's day meal. Not sure I really want to know what it was!!
When all is said & done, I know my family loves me! They will go too extreme measure (if you knew my husband as well as I do you would know shopping & cooking is extreme)to show me that they love & appreciate me!!!
I'm very, very grateful for my Frumpy Family...I just need to remember that on those crazy momma day's when nothing I do seems as greatly appreciated!!!
