My Very 1st Mommy's Day!

I guess it truly wasn't my very 1st day, but last year Hannah was still in utero. So this was my first "official" day. It was kind of a Mother's Day weekend of sorts.

Friday morning I awoke to a beautiful lily plant that Hannah had "picked out" the night before with Daddy. He said that he walked her down the aisle and whatever she touched first was the one she wanted Mommy to have! I must say she did a wonderful job! They have opened up so pretty and full.

We spent all day Saturday out and about. Ricky had a picnic with the teachers from his school. And I won 2 free movie passes!!! Which goes great with Myra and Noah gave me: a few night of babysitting courtsey of Auntie Chris. Now Ricky has NO excuse for us not to go out.

Afterwards we went to Arlington to Edwin Watts Golf to get Ricky fitted for clubs (which is another post altogether!) Then off to Costco for shopping, followed by a yummy cookout at Josh's house.

Sunday Ricky graced Hannah's and I presence at church. Getting Ricky up for 9 o'clock mass is a feat all itself! When we got home Hannah presented me a lovely photo card that her and daddy worked hard on. That evening we ate at Chili's and on the way stopped by Mommy's new school. It is just about ready for the upcoming school year.

We ended the day with a Mommy and Me photo shoot. Although I must admit, Hannah was definitely the top model. I can't blame Daddy though. Doesn't she look precious???

Happy Mother's Day to all of you!!!

For She's a Jolly Good Fellow!

On Friday evening, Ricky and I were invited to a surprise retirement party for Mrs. Black. She used to work with Ricky and has always been very supportive of him. He truly enjoyed working with her.

The party was scheduled to take place at a new place over by TCU called Gunsmoke. Now we had never been there before and once we got there we could see why! It was very uppidty! I even had to ask if it was OK to bring the little missy in!

Mrs. Black was very surprised as she thought that she and her husband were only going for an "early" Mother's Day dinner. When she saw everyone out on the patio, she started to get a little misty eyed.

We enjoyed a delicious meal and everyone loved watching Hannah wave her feet around. She was so good! I was little hesitant to bring Hannah in after I saw how fancy it all was. But Mrs. Black said, "I would have been UPSET if you had left that baby at home!" Mrs. Black and Ms. Levulis passed her around and gave her lots of love and attention which is exactly what Hannah loves!

Since it was such a "fancy" evening, Ricky and I decided that we had an "early" Mother's Day outing as well!
