* My mother’s Day …

Posted on May 10th, 2009 by melinda in Another day in the life of me.


What a nice Mother’s Day I’ve had. After church, we had dinner at my aunt’s house. It was very nice to see my family. However, my grandmommie fell and is now at the hospital. Don’t know any details except that she hurt her hip. They are going to call me after the Dr. see’s her. Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.


I also want to say a big ole “Happy Mother’s Day” to my favorite mother in law in the world. Y’all be jealous … I have the best mother in law ever. If you haven’t met her, you have no idea what you’re missing out on. Not only is she my mother in law, she is my friend and I appreciate her so very much. You might want to check out this post I did way back when. It has the top reasons I love my inlaws so much.


We did most of our Mother’s Day Celebrating around the homestead yesterday. I had a great day with the girls and not only did they clean my house from top to bottom … they got me a cool new crock pot. I’m not sure if the crock pot is more for me or for me to put something in it for them to eat, but either way, I am attached to it now and plan to try it out tomorrow.

And then (drum roll please) Chrisi cooked me dinner. She even managed to recruit her sister into going to the grocery store and Richard into helping cook. And we know summer is here because she whooped up her first official Brad’s Chrisi’s summer time surprise pie. Not one piece was left. Actually, there was one piece left, but my fat fannie ate it before I went to bed last night. What? It was my pie. I’ll fight ya for some pie now!

She mixed …


she inspected …


she sprinkled …


and she gagged …


it was a delicious meal and unlike the recipe from the night before, her mama’s recipe was scrumptious!

Thanks girls for a wonderful mother’s day … I love you both to the moon and back!

    I love the picture of you and the girls! We sent a “family” photo to Chrisi today. I hope she lets you peak at it.I hope it gives you a laugh for the day.

    I can’t wait to see it. I love the goofy pictures you guys send us. By the way, your page on “Bloomin’ Idiots” is updated today … make sure Tanner see’s his pictures he sent. He is quite the little photographer and do NOT fuss at him for sending all he wants to send. I enjoy getting them all. You also need to vote in the poll over there. Happy Mother’s Day!

    I voted, but Tanner hasn’t/couldn’t. I don’t know why, but it will not allow him to “click” to vote??

  6. chrisi

    it only lets each computer vote one time…that’s why it wouldn’t allow Tanner to click.

  8. melinda

    katrina, it’s a pie that chrisi stole the recipe from brad and now calls her own, it’s delicious. I will be glad to bring you the recipe, it’s very easy, requires no baking & everybody loves it! thanks for leaving your first ever comment, hope you’ll come back & leave lots more.
