Planting Flowers for Mom and more.....

Sunday after we church all of us brought Petunia's to plant for Nonny's Birthday. It was a pretty day, about 85 degrees but very windy. Here is ALOT of pictures from the day. I know this is a really long post with alot of pictures but I just couldn't leave any of my favorites out. Our kids, Kerry and Ricky's kids and even Frank sometimes really don't know how to react or comfort my Momma, but I want all of them to know that I think they are great with her. Just the simple fast of how they show love towards her makes my heart smile.


These are what I call my "Mom moments"

Momma watching me.
Here is a couple of Rayn being a "Big Helper"!

Lily, Rayn and I



Some of you might remember the post about Emily's "Connie" the Mini Van????? Well last friday Frank came and asked me where the duct tape was because the girls wanted it for "Connie"!! I didn't even ask. Well what they wanted it for was to tape the Gnomes they bought at dollar General to the DASHBOARD!!!! And aren't you the lucky people.....that get to meet the GNOMES!!!
"CONIES GNOMES"
Chris,Amy,Emily,Astrud,and Bubba (steven)
Astrud's siblings sharing a little bit of "Connie's" glory with her and Emily! NO THAT IS NOT OLIVIA NEWTON-JOHN GETTING READY TO SING "Let's Get Physical", THAT IS ASTRUD WITH RAYNS HEADBAND ON!!!! LOL
Our Kids the "Gangsters"

Astrud and her Bubba with Emily in "Connie"
Emily (Astrud's Best friend)and Christopher!
"My Daddy" (just ignore the metal Rooster playing the guitar, Frank bought that for my Mom , she once loved it and it's staying...)
Greg and Christopher messing with Emily because she is such an "Easy Target"!!!
Here is our Amy (DIL) truly posing for the camera. Some might say silly... I say "Beautiful"
Lily had some help from her Uncie and Big Cousins catching the baby mudcats and then....
We sooo busted Lily trying to keep her Mudcats alive by blowing into a straw...Isn't that just tooo gross!!!

Thanks for the comment regarding the womens conference. I may be going to this years event if we are still waiting for our referral although I'd rather be in China or home from China by then! If I don't go this year, I'm really hoping to go next year. Joyce is just amazing!
