party prep

My mom was here for a long weekend and flew home this morning. I miss her already. While she was here she did a lot to help me get ready for our 4th of July party tomorrow. We picked out food, decorations, and all the essential party items. What a help she was...with party planning, as well as just being here and helping the whole household hum along on our usual crazy days. If you are someone who adores her mom like I do mine, and you happen to live close to her...you are so very lucky.

It wasn't all work this weekend. We saw a movie together on Friday and spent Saturday shopping. We also managed to squeeze in a few rounds of cards here and there. Spite & Malice is our game. Ever play it? It's about the only card game I play. But I love playing it, especially with her.

I'm glad you had a good visit with your Mom. Sounds like you have the same kind of relationship with your mom as I do with mine. I would give anything to live closer to mine.

Have a July 4th wonderful party! Pictures to come?

Oh, Spite and Malice! I've taught it to all of the kids on camping trips but don't play it otherwise. My girlfriends and I played it on weekends before we were old enough to actually go out and date!
