My favorite moms

Today we had a brunch at Grandma Toot's assisted living for Mother's Day.  It was an opportunity to spend a little time with my favorite moms.  

Here's a picture of 4 generations of my family.  

From the left, Ollie and Annie, Mom, Caroline and Mggie, Me and Penelope. 
In front are Grandma and Aubrie.  

I was cracking up at the way Elle Pea's legs look in this picture.  Then laughed hard when Zac told me she had "baby ricketts."  Oh Zac.  Ridic.  

Here are a few shots from the rest of the morning.

I love her fat belly always hangin out!

She looks good, and she knows it!

Aren't my sisters and their babies pretty?!  I know.  They are.  

Tomorrow is Mother's Day.  I don't know if I get to count it as my first or not, but maybe.  I know one thing for sure, it's a day for celebrating the mamas in my life. 

 I've got a darn good ma.  She is loving, and generous and I'm fortunate to say, never made me look elsewhere for a good example.  She loves my Dad the way Mom should.  She taught me to cook, and clean (maybe obsessively).  My mom is one of my biggest cheerleaders and I will be forever thankful for her.  

My mother-in-law, Lolla, is also great.  Zac got jsut as lucky as I did in the parent department.  Lolla is funny and loving and smart.   She's a hell of a cook.  She is such a caretaker, it cracks me up.  I swear I almost gotta hound her to let me help when we visit.  Zac is a total mama's boy, even if he doesn't think so.  But for sure, you know you've got a great mother-in-law when you've spent nearly 7 years with your guy, and you can't remember having ever been annoyed with her.  Again, I'm a lucky girl!

I've got plenty of great examples around me... my grandmas, my moms, my sisters, my cousins, and  my best friends.  I know the type of mom I want to be, now I just gotta wait it out til I get my chance!
Just watch out Cliffy, there's a whole lotta women waiting for ya!

  1. You really do have a beautiful family, Abbie :-) And you are lucky you have a great mother-in-law; mine was completely annoying and insane (but I did have a great step-mother-in-law :-) You should absolutely celebrate Mother's Day for yourself, Clifford would want you to. :-)
