On This The Day of Mothers

It's difficult to say what part of this day I loved the most...

 Was it the Mother's Day scavenger hunt that the teenager placed overnight for me to find first thing in the morning?

Was it that the final prize of the scavenger hunt was a hug from the Teenager himself?

 Was it the amount of snow STILL on the mountain at our Snowbasin?

Was it the way Papa snatches Olivia from her parents as soon as he sees her arrive?

Was it the thoughtful gifts?

 Was it the amazing plethora of food stuff?

 Was it the ice sculpture?

 Was it the meat carving station?

 Was it the third of fourth time through the buffet line?

 Was it the gathering of my family...minus one lawyer girl...and one red-headed angel?

Was it that this was my daughter's first Mother's Day?

 Was it the desert line?

 Was it the Almond Florentine with White Chocolate Mousse?

 Was it the teenager's meat plate (which was about his 7th plate of food)?

 Was it sharing a cupcake with my granddaughter Olivia?

 Was it seeing my adorable grandson Henry wearing plaid?

Was it the delight of having a decadent dinner and not having to cook or clean a thing?

Was it "A Tribute to Mama Lisa...on This The Day of Mothers" another fabulous video tribute from Lawyer Girl in LA. Yes you should definitely watch this one too!

I imagine it was absolutely all of these things and more, because I am blessed to call these people my family... and being showered with love and attention always makes me happy!


  1. Looks like you had a great Mother's Day! Loved the video.

  2. A hug from a teenage son would definitely top MY mother's day wishes. Those are rare at my house. :)

  3. I'm so glad you had a good day-- you certainly deserve it. And the video is priceless.

  4. Oh, wonderful video! Aren't kids the greatest?

  5. You're a GREAT Mom Lisa! Love you friend...
