This dear girl decided that the moms should not have to prepare the food, so she coordinated the kiddos to make contributions to take care of lunch.
...and especially because she's usually pretty busy trying to keep her charge under control.
It's a full-time job.
They came up with a delicious lunch...
and a little delight for dessert: chocolate peanut butter cakes, baked in jam jars, then topped with ice cream and melted dark chocolate.
We were all so very happy.
And we celebrated birthdays...
of which there are FOUR in May...
...so lots of presents.
And I just HAVE to show you what my mom made for me...
Isn't it pretty?
...a little more detail...
Mom has been creating a quilted piece for each of the girls this year. I just love the embroidery on these squares, and the vintage-y fabrics...goes perfectly with all my vintage finds.
And of course, something I will treasure forever!
With the sun shining, it was a very pleasant lunch time, and a very relaxing one for the moms.
Love those grown-up kids!
