Wednesdays With My Mom AND...V-Day 2010

If you remember, I took my mom to get her eye glasses adjusted a couple of weeks ago. While we were there I had them make an official eye appointment, which was this day last week.
Cute Story: We forgot her sunglasses, so she borrowed mine for the trip. When she looked at herself in the side rear-view mirror, she said, "Hey, I don't look too bad in these!" Made me smile. : )


Guess who drove down from School to surprise Sara for Valentine's Day! He even did the romantic "throw pebbles at her window thing". So sweet!!!




I got this table-runner from Kohl's this year. How cute is it, that they put the word Love in the corner?

Did you happen to get these $1.00 Initial Stamps from Michael's this year? As you can see, below, I embossed them.

Princess C. and G. wearing their new little aprons. The cupcake one came from Kohl's and I purchased the cherry one while on a trip out of town a while back.



Rootbeer float time!!!


My beautiful girls!!!

We sure missed this little guy (in London) and his mommy and daddy this year. Happy Valentine's Day precious boy!!!
I hope you each had a good one, too! : )

thank you for sharing all these lovely photos with us...it all looks so sweet! The girls are precious and seeing them down on the floor with their dolls brought back a flood of memories as that's where you could usually find me as a youngster!

Your Mom's so cute. So are the grands. Don't you just love them. I love your red polka dot plates. Where did you get them?

Oh ML Sweetie...
Your Moma did look great in those sunglasses. I love them on her. So very cute for sure. Did she sweet talk you out of them?

Love the pics of the kids, especially the young love pic. How sweet, that he drove down to surprise her. That picture would make the perfect Valentine card for next year. It's a keeper.

The little aprons were so cute and they seemed to be pretty darn happy with them. Sorry you missed handsome because he is in London? What on earth are they doing there? I must of missed something somewhere. Bring me up to date sweetie.

Thank you for sharing your Valentine's with me. I love it when you share your Wednesdays with your Moma. Just love it.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry

Oh, how I used to love paper dolls when I was little. Those look like some really good ones too. You did a great job on Valentine's day. What a beautiful table.

Happy Valentine's Day Week Mary Lou! I have caught up with you all the way back to the baby shower! Always so many lovely ideas to keep in mind for the holidays when I visit. Your Valentine's table and apron helpers are too sweet for words! Love is always close by for you, and I am glad for this! Elizabeth

Scrap for Joy said...

What a great Valentine celebration you had...I'm like you, it's all about presentation! The girlies look sweet in their aprons and you know it warms my heart to see the paper dolls. I'm glad to know that girls are still playing with them! Your Mom in those sunglasses...she looks like she's ready to go cruisin...you need a convertible! (Not too long now-5 sleeps!)

What a cute family you have. All the way from Great Grandma to the little ones. Love those polka dot plates. When I saw them I thought of Grams and her newly remodeled kitchen. I forget about going into Kohls. That runner is darling. Mimi

This was a wonderful, wonderful post to read!

You should buy Wilma a pair of shades like yours. She looked hot!

You put us all to shame with the details you put into each holiday. I feel so bad, I think I need therapy.

Yes, your Mom does look great in those glasses. Beautiful table setting for Valentines Day. Love the way those stamped monograms came out. Very pretty. How very happy your daughter looks with her young gentleman. Have a great weekend.

Forgot to mention how cute you look being held in the arms of your Mom. Everyone looked nice and spiffy in that photo. Does anyone use the word spiffy anymore? I'm dating myself.

Your Mom is "stylin" in those cool shades! Your Valentine's Day table looks beautiful! I just love all of your special touches and I bet all of your family does too.

I always have to smile at all of the love I see between you all in your pictures.♥

Hi Mary Lou,

Stopped back by to tell you yes, I took that woodpecker picture. I have that suet feeder and a black sunflower feeder right outside my kitchen window and I SOOOOO enjoy watching all the birds and the woodpeckers come eat. It is especially BUSY when it is snowing.

Small House said...

You have to be the number grandma and daughter!!! Love the table setting. Especially love how cute you are to your mom.

Sandy, Sisters of Season said...

Hi Mary Lou,

Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving such kind words. I notice we have alot in common, I collect "Williraye" too . . it's a fun collection, they always look cute and never go out of style. I'll look for your Etsy Shop. Have a nice weekend!

Jacqueline said...

Hi my friend,
I learned a few things from this post. You have great taste! I guess I better get down to Kohls. I don't often go there...I'm missing the mark for sure! Your girls are so pretty, and your table....hmmmm...you are so gifted at decorating and PLAY! Love to you this February Saturday!

marmielu said...

Oh, this was the most delightful post! What fun you've captured here. I like your mom in your glasses, too. That table setting looks wonderful, and I haven't thought of rootbeer floats in so long. Wow! Shows how out of touch with kiddos I am. Really, I just love this whole thing! Thanks so much. It really made me smile - alot!
Mary Lou
