Help my mom move furniture and clean baseboards.
Hubby took me to dinner at this great new, southwestern grill. I ordered "Juanita's Fajita Salad" and boy oh, was it delish! Why did he take me at night? One of his busiest days at the restaurant is Mother's Day. He ALWAYS has to work that day, so he took me out to dinner a couple of nights before! Sweet huh?
Another part of his gift to me! He took me to one of my favorite places a few days before!
Shaney Pooh made his dad (asked his dad) to take him to Walgreen's Saturday night. He had remembered me commenting on this foot care package of Burt's Bees Products. Agustin said Shane was intent on getting this for me!
Shane just KNEW I'd love this little TY beanie baby bear. The ribbon she's wearing says, "Happy Mother's Day 2008".
My newest little friend, Julia! She and her mom joined us at Olive Garden for a Mother's Day lunch. They then came by the house to visit. Julia had picked out these bath goodies for me at the new ULTA store which recently opened in our little town's new mall. Can't you just see how proud she is of her choices for me?
(I can't believe I forgot to put my jacket on before having this photo taken! Que pena!
That afternoon, my first born called me. A great ending to a great day!
Oh the time I've wasted searching for that one piece of paper I didn't file right away, or that craft item I purchased and didn't put in my craft closet!

Baby Caroline's ticket had the winning number for the drawing from the kiddies basket. She was awarded this sweet, itty-bitty, pink purse which was sewn by a dear lady in our church.Our guest speaker, Mrs. Amy Nance, Me, and our Pastor's wife, Dina Naill. Amy spoke of the woman who TOUCHED the hem of Jesus' garment and was healed! If you know this story from the Bible, then you know the lady had suffered from a severe illness. The Bible says she had an issue of blood. She was probably very anemic and weak, but fought the crowd to touch Jesus. See how well Amy tied her message in with the theme of "A Special Touch"? The woman in the story had tried every form of treatment known in that day. She had been to Dr. upon Dr. but she never gave up searching for that fullness of healing. My heart was touched and encouraged by Amy's words. My friends, have YOU received that special touch from Jesus? He not only enjoys healing our physical maladies, he wants to save our souls and freely give us eternal life. If you have any questions concerning salvation through Christ, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I possessed a winning ticket as well and just looky at what I won! These goodies helped represent the theme of "A Special Touch" as well. A dermatologist who attends our church donated $1300.00 worth of product for door prizes and such.
This was my favorite table of all! In keeping with the theme of the day, the hostess called it "The Potter's Touch". I think it should have won the contest. Notice the hand prints on the plastic table cloth. Also the tiny clay pots which were at each place setting.
This table was decorated with single girls in mind. Enlarge to read the signs. I love the warnings as the road winds up to the top which has a bride and groom signifying marriage.
Blessings my friends and have a most wonderful weekend!
Love and Hugs,
You Are a Caramel Apple Jelly Bean
You have a gentle sophistication. An appreciation of fine things, without being snobby about it. You enjoy sweet tastes and silky textures.
Tuesday Night - Agustin brought home tamales. This signature Mexican dish is another which is normally reserved to be made for big fiestas such as weddings, birthdays, Christmas, etc. due to all the work one must put into making these. My hubby's mom is known as the QUEEN OF TAMALES in her circle. I like to add a dollop of sour cream on mine. You can add salsa or whatever you're in the mood for. These tamales were loaded with chicken and green salsa inside, so the sour cream was all they needed.
Wednesday Night - Ground beef with spices, onions, and cactus! Yes, you read that right, cactus! They are quite tangy and good for you. Also pictured are refried beans and more Mexican Rice. I prepared this meal myself.
When my dad granted me guardianship of his mother's New Testament, he also gave me his old draft cards. I wish they were legible, but after carrying them in his wallet for so many years, they are terribly worn and faded. I can make out that for his complexion they wrote "ruddy".
This card tells my dad's height and weight, etc.
I keep these small papers safely tucked in Granny's New Testament.
I trust you enjoyed looking at this old Bible, full of family memories. See you next week! Oh and remember, to see more Show and Tells, LINK HERE TO KELLIS HOUSE!
