Hope everyone had a nice weekend.  We had a nice and busy weekend ourselves.  Our son and new d-i-l met us at Starbucks Sunday afternoon to show pictures from their trip and visit a little bit.  It was so good to see them!   On Saturday evening, we visited with friends and shared some of the groom’s cake with them.  Speaking of the groom’s cake, let me show you how cute it was…so perfect for our son.  The bakery designed it perfectly!  It was actually bigger than it looks like in the picture, and we enjoyed cake for the next week after the wedding.  Yum!

This weekend was another busy but fun weekend.  We went to visit our kids and grandkids, helped our son move some of his furniture and things that he doesn’t need before the wedding.  We got to see our daughter and son-i-l’s new house (on the outside) that they hope to close on this week.  Lots of things going on in our family!

Father’s Day was nice!  After church, we took my husband to Olive Garden.  Later in the day, we had frozen yogurt at this neat (and healthy) frozen yogurt shop.  The best part was getting to be with our children, children-in-law, and grandkids!  It was a very blessed day!

This was a very busy but very fun weekend!  Our son and future daughter-in-law came for their church shower where we go to church. It was absolutely beautiful, and they got so many nice things. It is such a blessing to have a wonderful church family where there are so many sweet people!

I have to show you the cake from the wedding shower. It was so pretty and delicious, and the fondant flowers on top looked too pretty to eat!

This weekend was beautiful weather-wise.  Nice to not have any storms!  Sunday, we went to a church luncheon at noon for the recovery group that attends there.  Then I went to a wedding shower for a young lady at church who is getting married.  It was a beautiful shower!  Next week, they’re having a shower for our future daughter-in-law (although they don’t know her, just our son). So exciting!

We feel so blessed to be part of a church family that is so loving to people, whether they’re poor or homeless or well-to-do, no matter the skin color or age (lots of babies, children, college students, young couples, middle age and elderly), and that reaches out to those are overcoming additions and to those in the community by hosting a children’s clinic for neighborhood children, having a weekly food pantry and clothing for those in need, adopting a near-by school and doing things for the students and faculty, and a lot of other things.  Reminds me of the saying, “What would Jesus do?” The Bible tells us some of the things Jesus did when He lived on earth which were helping the poor and needy, loving others, and doing good. What a wonderful example to try to follow!

So…here’s our menu.  Hope you have a great week!

Our son graduated from college this weekend, and I had the honor of standing behind him in the ceremony and placing the graduation hood on him.  It was a beautiful ceremony because it included songs of praise and thanks to the Lord for His faithfulness throughout their lives and prayers that they may be blessed to make them effective servant-leaders in their respective professions.

With so many enjoyable events,  one event right after another, it made for a busy but fun weekend, and we were even able to attend a recital for the musically gifted daughter of some good friends the night before graduation.  Mother’s Day included lunch at Olive Garden with our children, grandchildren and the parents of our son’s fiancee, and after a little more visiting, we still got back home at a reasonable hour.  I hope your Mother’s Day was an especially good one!
