Happy Mother's Day

Thursday evenings premiere was fantastic. Chris Ireland and everyone involved in the Jennifer Ireland foundation did a wonderful job. I was very honored to be chosen to be the first recipient from this foundation. The evening was great, everyone looked incredible dressed up (we clean up well). We had appetizers and drinks, I got to meet Chris, Jan (Jen's mother) and several others. I have to say Chris and Jan, you both are amazing people! Jan gave me such a big hug and we just sat there embracing each other. She already seems like a mom to me! She just had that feel about her. The movie was impressive. It was a war movie, so a lot of bloodshed. It was well done and had a great story to tell. I bowed out of the afterparty. It was already my bedtime by the time the movie was over. I have to thank my neighbor Pam W. for doing my hair and touching up my makeup! She did a fantastic job, my eyes did pop!

It has been crazy busy around here. My sister, as you know, is back in KC. She got access to her house Thursday and so we are trying to help get some rooms painted before the movers come Monday. I got to rest in this morning. Ella is still sleeping, she had a late night last night playing with her cousins.

Today is the other big event. The pub crawl. I am looking forward to that. I will let you know how this event goes. I better get up and going, it is going to be time for us to drink soon. I won't be partaking in much of the drinking as you can probably guess. But I will sure encourage others, hehe. Thank you to Nana and Grandpa for taking Ella for us today. They have been a tremendous help to us.

I think Ella is up, I hear Doug talking in his "little girl" voice in the other room. I will try to get pictures out maybe Sunday from the premiere.

Happy Mother's Day to all you wonderful mothers! I hope you have an enjoyable day and thank your mother's for all they have given you. I know I will thank my mother, she is the greatest! shawndra

Happy Mother's Day Shawndra. It was so good, no GREAT, to see you there at the Crawl yesterday, and meeting your friends, and seeing your husband and sister once again made me feel like I'm a part of your family. If I weren't teaching, I'd be over there with a paint brush helping your sister great ready for the movers! Being with Jen, I learned my way around a paint brush and a can of paint, but with Jen, you just painted over the trim. Hah!
Your mom is a lucky woman to have a daughter as wonderful as you and Ella is as equally lucky to have you as her mommy. I wish you the best day of all and remember my prayers are going out mightily for you and your family.
With much fondness and many prayers,
