family favorite foto friday

family favorite foto friday
over at
pictures pots pens

Meet some of my family,
then go on over and meet some other nice people.

This is my daughter and two of my granddaughters.

Each year they do a tea for us "Moms"
for Mother's Day.
It is a special event we look forward to each year.

Ava, the 4 year old, made the place mats,
and Isabel, the 8 year old made the invitations (not pictured)
We got a bon bon in the little paper basket,
and a bag of our favorite chocolates,
and some bags of wildflowers to plant.
Each year Angie thinks of just some thoughtful little gifts for us.

She also, with the girls help, fixes us a lovely brunch.
This year it was strawberry shortcake,
and a cheese and cracker plate.

The girls always help serve and
make sure our tea cups are always full and our plates cleared when done.

Then each year there is entertainment.
This year it was a cute little singing skit performed by Mama and Isabel..

And here are the two lucky and blessed grandmas and 3
of our granddaughters.

Aren't they all wonderful??
We are so blessed to have them, and have 'in-laws'
that are such wonderful people.

blessings to you and your family.

Hi Barbara Jean, this is my first visit to your blog. I found you through the meme for Favorite Family Foto Friday.

I love the pictures and the sweet story you told about your daughter and granddaughters. How precious that they are so considerate and generous to you on Mother's Day. They are all just lovely, as are you.

Thanks so much for sharing today and joining the meme. I love photos, anyone's photos! Have a great weekend!

Many hugs..........

How sweet, thoughtful, and so original!!! It would be so fun to be one of the moms, and get to attend the social function!!! The gift of "TIME" is so much better than anything a person could purchase for a present, don't you agree? How delightful!
