Happy Mothers Day!

Yum
To all of us who are moms, to all of us who want to be moms, to all of us who are waiting for our babes to be born, Happy Mother's Day!

I spent the day with my mom in my hometown of Marceline yesterday. We did drive to the "city" of Chillicothe and had lunch at the Wabash BBQ that is located in the old train depot. We ordered way too much food but it was fun to munch on catfish, sweet potato fries and BBQ chicken. We toured the town's painted murals which were totally awesome. Did you know that Chillicothe is the home of sliced bread?

The picture below is of my mom and my sister. My sister is truly an awesome mom. She practically raised her two boys by herself. Both boys are kind, loving, and hardworking. They help my mom all the time as they both live in the same town. Ben, the youngest, comes by for breakfast every morning and Chris, the oldest, does many household chores from time to time.



P.S. My mom is nearly 70 (in July this year!) Doesn't she look amazing!

    Hi, Terri,

    I just spent some time catching up on you and your family by reading your blog. What a lovely, tasteful site - as opposed to my daughter's blog. She is such a wonderful mess! I love her to death!

    The wedding was fabulous! I know you, Bob, and Ashley had wonderful time planning the day, and seeing it come to fruition in such a beautiful way must have been very satisfying and, yes, bittersweet. Ashley was a stunning bride and her dress...WOW!
    I loved it.

    I know you are looking forward to the end of another school year. Take care.
