Mother's Day

Mother's Day was perfect.  Sweet smiley faces bringing breakfast (& chocolate!) to me in bed is a wonderful treat.  I drank 2 whole cups of HOT coffee, uninterrupted, while reading IN BED.  To top that off, I threw open the french doors to look out on a sunny, spring, bird filled morning.  So beautiful!

Lunch was leftovers (easy peas y) and Mitchell and Kelsey arrived shortly after it to spend to spend the day.  Dear Megan (15) cooked a spectacular full roast chicken dinner for us all.  Paige and Kelsey helped her just a little by prepping veggies, but she did a marvellous job and I'm so proud of her.

After the kids got the dishes done, we sat by the fire.  That lovely chocolate got pushed into service glueing graham crackers and marshmallows together :)  Is there anything better than s'mores on a warm Spring evening by the fire with family?  

 These smiles are the result of realizing that NEXT May, Kelsey will be celebrating HER first Mother's Day!

This is the good life :)  Oh yes, it is!
