A really good time

Sometimes you just don't want the weekend to end. This one especially. Saturday, little lady and I went to a very girly party, had lots of chocolate cake and good conversation. It is so much fun getting together with all the women in your family.

And mothers day I got to spend time with my mother in law, and my mother. Some knitting, pizza on Saturday, and Sunday night (with french fries) lots of sun, lots of hugs and kisses, oh it was good.

My mother loves sea glass, and a few months ago I asked her for her collection and told her I was taking some of it, but she would get it back in a different form. I picked out four colors, blue, purple, green, and white each color represents the birthstones of her four daughters.
Frank got a glass drill bit, drilled the holes, and I just wrapped them with wire and put them on a sterling chain.
To all of you mothers, I hope you had a good one too.

Katie-

I just got back from PT at the hospital-everyone there and at work loves the necklace. (I wore it with a sky blue sweater.) I haven't gotten so many compliments in a long while. I had SUCH a wonderful day yesterday...I think it was my best Mother's Day EVER!

Love you!-MOM
