Happy Mother's Day

What's up with the weather? Today's high was supposedly 57 but I don't think it made it that high. And the wind?!? It was just simply a miserable day outside. I can't remember a Mother's Day like this. Here are the gifts I received for Mother's Day: from Hubby and both girls I received a Disney Cruise Line book (so I can do even MORE reading about our upcoming trip), the 2nd season of Grey's Anatomy on DVD, a Molina (Cardinal) T-shirt, and a Cardinal bracelet that looks as if it was made from baseball leather. I had another bracelet just like it and I wore that one out. Funny thing about the Molina T-shirt.....I have shirts hanging in our basement with the names Vina, Grudzielanek, Rolen, and Eckstein on them. We joke that next year on Halloween, we are all 4 going to dress up like traded St. Louis Cardinals! Ha ha! Well, I like Yadier Molina now as well as Rick Ankiel so I hinted to Hubby that a Molina shirt would be nice (my birthday is also in May so he has more than one reason to buy me gifts!). But then again, I am almost afraid to get a shirt with someone's name on it because inevitably, they get traded.

HEY!!!! I need to get an Isringhausen shirt!! YEAH, then maybe they would trade or release him! That would be GREAT!

From B1, I got a real flower planted in a decorated pot and a fake hyacinth flower made from plastic 6-pack rings that her school recycles. It's really pretty cool looking and does look like an actual hyacinth. She spray painted it blue. From B2, I got a magnet of a picture of me and her that she also made at school. Those gifts are very special. I know someday when they are too "big" to make me things, I will miss it.

I went to graduation today at Triad. I haven't missed a graduation in my 10 years teaching (not even the year I gave birth a month before) and today's was a good ceremony. It always makes me feel good when the graduates applaud us teachers as we enter the gym. It makes me feel like what I do is really worth it. Then we went to dinner with my family at the same restaurant where we went on Easter. I had a stuffed pork chop which was really yummy! I hope all of you had a good Mother's Day as well!

Hi Beth, Wonderful to see you all. Cannot believe how tall B1 has gotten -- when did this happen?! And B2 looks soooo grown up already. Sigh. Our child #3 was out before we got home. I recognize the pre-crash high that he operates on -- impossible to slow him down, unfortunately. I keep tring to remember that Child 1 was like that too. Not so much any longer thank goodness. I wanted to spend sometime today working on vacation photos, but that didn't happen. Maybe next weekend. When do you leave for your cruise??? We're talking about just doing the parks again next summer with the children. Even my husband is up for that! It is everything that I can do not to start planning it out already!!! Well, off to bed for me. Email when you can! Love, your couin, C.

Hey Beth...

Sorry we didn't get a chance to see you guys while we were down this weekend. Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Highland...went to the dinner at Mater Dei (Yay!! Go MDHS). Then, yesterday I took Mary Ann to the brunch at Michael's in Highland. Wasn't that impressed. It was just OK. I wanted it to be nicer.
You're right..the weather was just AWFUL!! Driving back was an adventure trying to stay on the road. Sounds like you had a real nice Mother's Day. Hope your Mom is doin' OK. Love you guys..
