Spring is (finally) Here! Next week, it will be Summer (sigh)

This morning when I opened our garage door, this was my view. Beautiful, isn't it? I love the flowering trees and tulips. Soooo pretty!

My DIL 'Martha Stewart'

Kim, my favorite daughter-in-law, is amazing! She is an R.N.; she manages the employee health department at CDH; she and Tom grow crops on a farm-ette; raise bees; have a huge garden, two great dogs and two great, grown up boys! There's more - Kim is a Master Gardner, and Card Maker extrordinaire. She's also a wonderful cook and hostess. I could go on and on, but I won't. 

Here are a few pictures. Eggs from the farm, that are almost to beautiful to eat, and my Kim-made Mother's Day card.

One of my favorite pictures of Kim and Tom. I call it their 'yearbook' picture - don't ask me why.

Wonderful Mother's Day

My beautiful Amy hosted our family celebration and every one had a great time. My favorite daughter-in-law Kim, made a delicious strawberry salad with home grown spinach, feta and her own dressing. I call her 'Martha'. Tommy had to work - his shift has worked every holiday lately! I hope that changes soon. My Mom will be 91 in a few weeks! She's still driving and has a cute condo in Wood Dale where she enjoys the pool and visiting with her neighbors.
I 'borrowed' these pictures from Amy's blog because we haven't downloaded ours yet. There may be more coming.

Amy's house is all fixed thanks to her friend Mike. The previous 'tenant' really damaged the kitchen and other areas, so it's wonderful to see it back to it's 'best' and then some. Thanks, Mike! You do good work!!
