Phew. My mom is in town. Considering the stuff happening to me, I’m glad she made it safe. I thought she was going to chew me up one side and down the other though. Just getting out of P’cola her plane was an hour late. Which meant she was missing her connection in Atlanta. She ended up with a 3 hour layover in Atlanta. Did I mention she HATES flying and airports? Yaa. I thought I was going to be in soooo much trouble. Luckily, she was happy to be here and see the grandkids that I survived. GRIN.

It was a busy morning with lots of gifts. If you notice by Mamaw’s hand, there is the Kung Zhu pet with it’s pikachu costume. The costume Mamaw made!
Yep, that is the ‘old’ game of Operation. Except it has been updated to have a cell phone in the wrist and a few other new ones. We played it and loved it. Hubby, Mamaw and I played it once and ended up laughing so hard we were crying. There was one item we just could not get out. Definitely not going to use the hard setting with the boys, we’ll never finish a game!

Mamaw is the greatest in the boys eyes right now… she got them reindeer that poop jelly bellies. Push them down to make them squat and out comes a jelly belly or two…
Got to lift that head to get them fed the jelly bellies of choice… The youngest just loved it…
They have been eating out of them for days now…

I never thought I would find one of these in MY yard. Sorta like I thought I would never let me kids watch too much TV…. Yet, this is desperately what Tot wanted… Mamaw got it for him…
He hugged it, he ran around it, he talked about it… that boy is very excited. Wait till we get the rest of the decorations done!
Tater got an indoor decoration set… more on that soon…
On a side note… sometime in the afternoon I get the stuffing pulled out of me. I’ll see if I can get pictures… though my understanding is I’ll be throwing up and not feeling well… I might just be able to handle it! If I can… the grossness of it will come through on the blog!

Mom, your birthday means so much to me;
To have you in my life another year,
The time I spent enfolded in your love,
Each day, each moment with you is so dear.
I cherish the very special bond we have.
You lift my spirit in so many ways.
I celebrate your life; I honor you,
And send to you my love and care and praise.
By Joanna Fuchs
That poems says it quite well. I wish I had thought of it. You are a wonderful addition to my life. You taught me so much and continue to teach me as I get older. I love you mom. Happiest of Birthdays!

I remember my mom having to work with me on Electronics in high school. Now she has to put circuits together with her grandkids!
This is also for Sticks who is studying electronics right now!

Every day I wonder if I’ll be as cool as my mom. She just sent me this
which is pretty cool. Almost as cool as this picture!

Remember back in Jan of 2008? No, me neither… but I have a post that shows Mamaw played Pokemon with Tater back then…
And had to learn it all over again this trip. Here is Tater explaining which cards he picked out for her deck. ( psst… notice the chair covers while you are at it. She was done by this time. ) Tater was very careful about which ones she was to use. As if she didn’t get enough Pokemon having to play the Pokemon Champion Island DVD game with him for a couple of days… now the real card game.

No joke, the first thing out of my hubby’s mouth when it was the day before getting Mamaw from the airport was something like… “Phew, soon we can have meatloaf again Boys!”…. Ahhh the continuation of our story… with Mamaw here, the boys eat ‘Meat’. No more of that blah, bland chicken stuff. Mamaw also makes sure we make lots of leftovers so we can keep on giving when she has left… Think I’m joking? Here is the pile of meatloaf on my counter waiting to have the bread crumb mixture added… why is it on my counter? Because I didn’t have a bowl big enough to handle it!
Triple THIS RECIPE and you see what is on the counter. Loved by all!

Mamaw came to visit. I had a list of things I wanted to get done while she was here. As usual, we got the most important things done and she still had time with the grandkids!
Some of the most important items required sewing… which is not my best ability… but is certainly my mom’s. I wanted seat covers for my dining room chairs. They looked horrible with the food and mess on them, and I just couldn’t keep up in cleaning them. She made a pattern, came up with ways to easily put them on and take them off and blamo… she was off and running… take a look at her go!
While this was happening, she still found time to play Pokemon with the boys, work on homework and science experiments, supervise my planting, do laundry and make dinner. The woman is awesome. There is more of this story coming to you in bits and pieces…
But one of my favorite quotes she told me about was when Tater was taking her picture… I believe he said something like “I want to take a picture of you so I have it when you are dead.” Geeze… it runs in the family… I said something similar when I was younger… but I think it was on the lines of leave me your house when you die.
