Mother's Day and EDDs

I had a wonderful Mother's Day.  Lots of talks at church that made me tear up and feel very, very grateful to be a mother (and certainly feel more love and gratitude for my own mother and grandmothers).  We met at my mom's house for a nice little evening party.  Pictured above: my mom, me, Grandma Judy, and my aunt Debbie. Missing from the photo and party was dear, dear Gram. She's been suffering with back pain for months now, poor Gram (we really missed you!).
Here I am on my EDD (estimated due date) with no signs of labor.
I thought it would be good to show off the men in our lives, too.  Pictured here: Mike (aunt Debbie's new beau), Adam, my Dad, and Grandpa Dave).
Adam made this wonderful window frame for me for Mother's Day.  He tracked down the girl I know who does vinyl lettering and had the sign made up, painted the window frame, dug out any and all pictures of us in front of a Temple and made copies.  He is amazing.  The other morning he woke up and whispered "I love you".  My heart was full and I replied, "I know you do, and it is the most wonderful feeling in the world."

I'm so happy you had a wonderful Mother's Day, and kudos to Adam for thinking of such a thoughtful gift!
