Mother's Day Ala Keena

Mother's Day was a great Sunday. After church, I came home to an elaborately decorated back yard, complete with personalized graffiti on the back fence.




Staying true to Keena tradition, the table was set with a bucket of chicken from the Colonel!




After a finger-lickin'-good lunch, there were presents to open.
Emily did a fine job picking out this red crock-pot for me.
David, however, seems to think that I need to use it absolutely every day.
I think I need to find that Crock Pot Lady!


This was my reaction after opening "the gift" from everyone.
It was a Spa Package, complete with massage, facial, manicure and pedicure!





David made me a delicious chocolate cake, and Emily and Grace decorated
it befittingly with a giant Oreo "M".


My favorite part of the day was reading the notes Jim had gathered
from each of the kids, and even my son-in-laws joined in. I would post a picture of me all teary-eyed, and I do have one, it's just lop-sided! It meant so much that everyone took
time to really thank me for being their mom!
Or maybe they said I was a great mom.
I'm not sure which.
But it was nice!

That's just wonderful! Glad you got to feel so special on Mother's Day. Jarrod and our kiddos did a fabulous job, as well. It was hard to sit still and NOT do any work. (secretly loved it!)
