My birthday and Mother's Day are always very close to one another. (Sometimes even on the same day!) I had a wonderful Mother's Day Sunday. Tony and the kids made a great breakfast of french toast and coffee. Then we were off to our home parish for May Crowning and Masss. Later that day the children had their Easter choir concert and festival at St. Augustine's. (Check out Bridget's blog for pictures. You have to take a look the pics of Lydia - very very sweet!) We arrived home late and tuckered out! The next day was my birthday. My husband is the best gift giver I have ever known. He always chooses very thoughtful and personal gifts. This year I woke to find a beautiful statue of The Kitchen Madonna gracing my place at the table.
