Mother’s Day began a day early for us because Sunday’s at church are always super busy. So David and the kids took me out for a Mother’s Day dinner on Saturday. We went to Creole Rotisserie Chicken in West End and enjoyed a most delicious meal and a tropical carrot cake for dessert. On the way back to the car after dinner, we couldn’t help but take a few pics with the beautiful sunset.
On Sunday morning, the church held their traditional Mother’s Day program where the kids and youth all recite poems or sing songs for their Moms. Abbey did a song with some of the youth guys and Wyatt and Abbey both recited a poem. Sidney did not want to participate in the program this year and we told her we would not make her do it.
After the kids said their parts, they presented their Mom with roses and a daisy. Daisies are my favorite flowers and of course, the roses smelled really good also.
After the program, the church hosted a Mother’s Day luncheon of BBQ chicken, rice, macaroni and cheese and a roll with a piece of cake for desert. 2 ladies at church had also decorated a wall of the church so beautifully with handmade flowers to make a photo spot for families. It was a blessed and very special Mother’s Day weekend!
