Mother's Day 101

Kelly got off to a good start on a lifetime of Mother's Days!  She beat me to the "hot off the press" pictures but I am just throwing in a few for the fun of it!  Go here

for the story.
My favorite "Harper" time is bath time.  I have never seen a baby who enjoys being bathed any more than she does.  She just totally relaxes and enjoys herself! (With 10 people watching her bathe, how does she do that???)

Kelly made a great brunch/lunch for all her guests.  I am going to try her "grape salad" recipe soon.  It was delicious and can be made ahead of time.....I like that!  Maybe she post it on her recipe blog.

This is my sweetie.  I just had a great time lovin' on her!  There are not enough words to fully describe my joy in just being her grandmother.  If I had known it was this wonderful I would have started earlier!!!

On my drive home yesterday I got the "Mother's Day" call from my son.  He indicated that there may be a little announcement coming from  their home soon............more on that story as it develops.....stay tuned!

I love the pictures!

Is the grape salad the one with sour cream and cream cheese, green and red grapes and brown sugar sprinkled on top?? If so, I LOVE that recipe--I got it from my friend Becca a few years ago and it's a great one!

I'll for sure stay tuned for more on the C & C story!?!?! I hope it's what I'm thinking!?!? :)

Looking forward to reading what the announcement is! Our 5th grandchild will be born in September and we've learned this is a baby girl :) and we're overjoyed. She will have two older brothers.

When I finally rolled out of bed on Mother's Day, I was thinking of you, Kelly, Harper and all the joy that awaits. Given our time zone difference, I was anticipating your Mother's day 14 hours before it happened!

Thanks for all these beautiful photos. I know it is a day you will never forget.
