Saturday looks to be chilly and rainy, so I am planning on completing my last major clean out of the season...the linen closet. If I get brave, I may take some pictures and do a before and after. : ) We have mass in the late afternoon, followed by dinner with my sweet, sweet mother. We are taking her out for a nice dinner to celebrate her and how much we love her.
Sunday is Mother's Day. I can't be sure, but I have heard rumors of a special breakfast being made just for me. I am hoping it might be some of Flynn's special pancakes. We have a birthday party for Flynn's good friend in the afternoon, followed by a quiet night and a special dessert made just for me by my Peyton Rose. We will end our special weekend with that yummy dessert while we watch The Miss USA Pageant.
That is how we plan on spending this weekend my friends. Here is a look at the past week here in our country home...
I am happy to report I am still taking my early morning walks...
And enjoying them more and more.
So far, our spring has been "meh" as the kids would say...
But we have had a few warm, sunny days scattered among the chilly, rainy ones.
Forgive this horrible, low quality phone pic, but it was early and I didn't have my glasses!
I still wanted to document our little tadpoles that have hatched and are currently swimming around.
These were made from leftover dough.
Remember last weekend I told you our friend was coming over and he and Peyton were going to make her first ever cheesecake???
Well he did.
And they did.
And it was AMAZING!!!!!
So here it is.
It was a super creamy, delicious cheesecake with an Oreo crust and homemade chocolate chip cookie dough inside.
I have never made a cheesecake.
I never will.
Because now my Peyton can!
Here is a photo of the amazing bakers...
Peyton and our friend...who also happens to be our parish priest and pastor...Fr. Ross.
Next up for these two?
A super decadent looking chocolate cake!
My little Flynn likes to draw.
And this is what she draws.
And it makes my heart happy.
To all you mothers, grandmothers, godmothers, mother figures...those wanting to be, and those waiting to be...
Happy and Blessed Mother's Day!
Have a wonderful weekend with your people!!!
