Mother's Day at Karen's House

What an awesome mother's day celebration! I had a brunch for family and friends who did not have family in the area. Lots of good food, good conversation, and laughter. Take a look at my mother! She is 91 and keeps on ticking, or I should say 'kicking' since she has restless leg syndrome and is always kicking me under the table. This picture is the four generations. Rachel is now 8 months old.
My grandson, Sammy, is now three years old. He was, if not Rachel, the center of attention at the brunch. And...isn't that how it is supposed to be?

Can't let the entry go by without bragging about my children...here they are...they are always a source of joy.

My daughter, Pam, 35, and proud mother of two beautiful children.

My son, Scott, 33 years old and looking gorgeous!

I have not entertained in a long while and I was somewhat anxious about having enough food. As usual, I bought more than enough and everyone ate as much as they wanted. It was fun for me to entertain; I had forgotten how nice it is to have people over. I see a wine and cheese gathering in the near future when I invite the girls for a swim and a sip.

Glad you had such a great day. Entertaining is fun, it is the cleanup that leaves a little to be desired.

Sounds like a great time! Glad everything went well, and that you were able to spend good time with your family. I'm with Ken--the cleanup is not much fun! :) Hugs, Beth

Karen, I have an award for you if you would like to pick it up. It is from the Netherlands and quite attractive. Just pass it to a friend, no links, nothing but a visit to my blog and I worked to get that blog stable today. Nothing worked right!!!! Lucy

Lucy said...

Karen, you are so welcome. I am not good at keeping up on emails but I think of you a lot and I thought the award was a little different. Curiosity will be screaming at me so iI will e-mail soon. I think it was pretty cool when I first heard from her on my blog. She speaks a little english and has a translator button on her blog.
