~ Mother's Day ~ May 12, 2013

A gift from my son...

Very thoughtful...very sweet (very delicious, too!)  Love the lemon flavor on shortbread.

A gift from my youngest (Little Lamb)...

Cinnamon-y hot chocolate from scratch...Mexican Hot Chocolate!  My fave.

A gift from my Butterfly....an amazing Sunday Brunch for me, my mother-in-law, and sister-in-law...

A gift to all mothers...I LOVE to make flower arrangements.

A gift to Our Lady...Our Mother.

After the lilies have opened up a bit...I believe they are happy being at the foot of Our Lady as she cuddles her Son.

The morning began...listening to my daughters sing in the choir at the Cathedral; while my son served, as our bishop celebrated the Holy Mass. 

Then home, where my husband delighted me with a few of my favorite things...similiar to last years lovely brunch
Cookies Hand-made with love from SIL
