My little Italian, Mother's Day, and other stuff
So I've finally finished up with The beautiful Dario. He's such a cutie-patootie! Diana, if you're checking the blog, send me an e-mail!
As everyone knows, yesterday was Mother's Day. I always get spoiled. I have the best husband and kids in the world!!!! I sleep in, Darcy made "big breakfast" for us, then we all piled into the van for the traditional trip to my favorite greenhouse, where I spend too much money on plants! Each year, the kids all pick a perennial that is theirs for the garden. Then Darcy makes supper for me, and the kids clean up. And I get to do whatever I want. We had my sister-in-law here, as well as my oldest son's girlfriend for a dinner of homemade chicken cordon-bleu, roasted red peppers, greek salad, and bbq potatoes, good wine, good company.... Yup, life is good!
We did a little project for the dayhome kid's Moms last week. We had a photo shoot in my living room, and then had prints made. Then the kids and I used Mod Podge to glue their photos to ceramic tiles to give to their Moms. Here is the result, along with another glimpse of Dario.
