I am very much in love with my family and when my Men dress up or put their heads together for picture taking....well I just really love it! They dressed for my son's prospective high school Father & Son Communion Breakfast on Sunday and on Monday, they were in NY for DS's school trip. He graduates from the
8th grade and heads off to Prep school in the fall. Me, I spent all morning helping my DD(19 yo) move from one dorm to another.... poor DD had to move everything by herself as her sister was in school! I wished all the time for DD (15 yo)who really begged to come with me.....oh, well, it all got done.

For all you blog hoppers that happen to land here today....Happy Mother's Day!!! This has been a very busy week for our family... ;--) God bless us all! I can update this entry by adding the pics of my gifts: card made by darling son (13); bottle of grace from darling daughter (19) and watercolors and lily by darling daughter (15).... I am very blessed to be surrounded by such intelligence and talent!!!! Thank you Lord!
UPDATE: DEARLY BELOVED, WE ARE GATHERED HERE TO UNITE THIS MAN AND THIS WOMAN.....I DO, that is we did....got married yesterday. This was a full weekend. On Friday my darling husband adopted my daughter...she and he were very happy to make it official as he has been Daddy to her since she was two! On Saturday, he and I made it official and exchanged vows and rings....voila! We are joined together even more....hehehee... I am very happy! We planned our wedding in the space of two weeks...I made the dress with that gorgeous cream silk dupioni and a embroidered lace...just loved the wedding cake-chocolate with butter cream icing...and I and my two darling daughters held fuschia pink roses.
