Our annual Mother’s Day Brunch was a bit smaller than usual, but it was still filled with love, laughter and some really good food. I know some people think it’s a bit unusual that I (a mom) want to have hostessing/cooking duties on Mother’s Day, but I enjoy it.
|Me and my beautiful mom. Love her!!|
It is so fun to have friends and family join us for a few hours and kick back, relax with a glass of champagne or a Bloody Mary and just enjoy each other.
And did I mention…? Food.
|My Aunt Angie and… 1.) Baked Eggs in a Bacon-wrapped Polenta Crust (recipe HERE) 2.) Chicken Fried Steak with Country Gravy; 3.) fresh fruit; 4.) Fresh Baked Scones using these mixes; 5.) Pear & Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast|
The food is always so yummy! Handsome Hubby will be sharing the recipe and tutorial for making his fabulous Chicken Fried Steak very soon. My dad is a good ‘ole boy from Texas and he loves HH’s version.
Family is important too.
HH and the boys put a lot of thought and effort into cards and gifts.
Grant made a special art project with a lovely note and a key chain.
|He worked hard on the project and was very excited to give it to me. He even helped me open it. I love that kid!
(I am special because I am “the only girl in the house”…)
HH cracked me up, getting me a card where he underlined my attributes and questioned the areas where I am, um, lacking a bit.
Conner gave me one of his fabulous homemade cards, where he called me valiant, imaginative and a Grammar Nazi all in one card, and Devin wrote a very touching note. Everything was so very sweet.
I love my kids so much!
|Mitchell is always with his mom on Mother’s Day, but I love him as one of my own too!|
It was just a great, relaxing day.
I shared how I made my hanging photo centerpiece here.
Hope everyone had a lovely day and loved on the Moms in your life. How did you celebrate mom?
By the way, I am sharing how I recovered my patio chairs for this brunch over at Mom It Forward. Please stop by and check out the tutorial.
