Mothers' Weekend

Instead of just celebrating Mother's Day, we decided to make it a whole weekend of girl time.  My mother came to stay with Natalie and me and we all had a blast.

The celebration of motherhood began Friday morning with a "Mothers' Breakfast" at Natalie's school.

This is the card I received from Natalie after she was interviewed by one of her teachers.
 On Saturday, Mom, Donna, Natalie and I went to see Disney Princesses on Ice.  Natalie dressed as Ariel.  She shared a big tub of popcorn with "Marm"... I think Natalie ate about 80% of it.  We all had a wonderful time.

After the show Mitch joined us for a yummy fish dinner.

The next morning Mom, Nat and I had brunch at the Purple Cow where Natalie and I took our first selfie photos.  The pictures remind me of ones you would get from an old fashioned photo booth.

 That afternoon we went to the Children's Theater to see a production of Sleeping Beauty. Natalie doesn't have a sleeping beauty dress, so she decided to dress as Cinderella.

It was a wonderful weekend with two of my very favorite people on the planet.  

It is quite a wonderful gift to be in the middle of this mother sandwich.  Being a daughter to such an amazing Mother, having an extraordinary daughter of my own and spending time with them together is one of the best feelings in the world.

Reading Natalie's letter to you cracked me up, because my daughter also wrote me a letter this Mother's Day: "My Mommy is the best because she loads all the dishes in the dishwasher." True, true ...
