Happy Mother's Day!

Happy Mothers Day to all you mothers. We had a full day today. Susan's mom came over and went to Church with us. Fortunately, Susan's friend gave me the head's up to take tissues since Karl sang When Love Takes You In. We also had a very emotional service including an amazing story of adoption and reunion and an update on the life changing work being done by ICDI in partner with our church in the Central African Republic (CAR).

After church, Susan's mom and her sister's family joined us for a nice Lunch and some presents and the cousins played together. It was a house full, but I put all the kids to work helping get things ready. Even the little ones each got a job, and Scott was an excellent Sous chef and in charge of drinks and dessert. Lunch was Filet Mignon, broccoli, corn, rolls and baked potatoes. Dessert was Angel Food cake with fresh strawberries and Cool Whip -- Yum!
