Mother's Day Recap

Although Woman is not technically a mother, Ian was sweet and bought her some flowers. This sort of left me hanging, since I hadn't got her anything, so I decided to let her play some Hootie all weekend long! It was such fun for her.

Here are the boring old flowers that don't smell musky like a nicely seasoned Hootie, and which you can't throw down the hall.

The People worked hard on Saturday to get the house and yard ready for Mother's Day since the People were hosting a Mother's Day brunch on Sunday afternoon. Woman even mowed the lawn on Sunday morning. She has never mowed the lawn, and she says Ian can keep that job!

Sadly, there are no photos of the food, which is a shame. Ian made shrimp and grits with cajun remoulade sauce, and there were biscuits with jam and yogurt/granola/blueberry parfaits for dessert. I hear it was all good.

Here is a photo of the ladies in attendance. Allison (Ian's youngest sister), Grandma Billie (Ian's step-grandma), The Gammy (Ian's Mom) and of course Woman.

Also in attendance were Ian's brother Trevor, Allison's husband Brad and Ian's Stepdad Michael. Why didn't the dudes get a photo? Sexist ladies hogging all the glory, that's why!

There are also no photos of the presents. Where was the camera, Woman? The People bought Gammy a lovely bracelet from New Morning Gallery and Grandma Billie a cute blue ceramic birdfeeder.

Allison announced after brunch that she too would be a mother next mother's day. Her baby is due sometime in January. Gammy was excited, but also a little sad to know that she's old enough to be a grandma. She felt even a little sadder when Woman reminded Gammy that she's been old enough to be a grandma for the past 9 years since the Peoples' 9 year anniversary is coming up in June! LOL!

    Geesh - it's hardly worth post 'n when there's no photo's of FOOD. But, we're glad that Woman had a nice day.

    " a nicely seasoned Hootie." LOL! People may be staring at me in my office, but that was hilarious. I know that smell. And the weird thing is every now and then I keep checking the pugs stuffed animals to see if they still stinks. OF COURSE THEY DO! Duh!!
    Norman, congrats on your future roll as a cousin. I imagine you'll fulfill your duties nicely. And congrats to the People for becoming an Aunt and Uncle!

    No food photos? What a bummer. As for not getting your Woman a gift, I would say that since you have no opposable thumbs you are off the hook. Playing Hootie all weekend works for me.

    How sweet Ian is! To get your flowers. Well you are a good mommy to Normie right? And I'm sure that you take good care of Ian too.

    Congrats to Allison!

    And [and grits with cajun remoulade sauce]...? No photos!? And Ian's a little Emeril, ain't he? I had no idea!
