|Gramma's morning selfie with Ella|
I was absolutely DELIGHTED to find out that the oldest Mad-son and his lovely Sarah and of course that bundle of energy and joy, miss Ella, were coming for Mother's Day this year. Mother's Day tends to be sort of a sad day for me lately. Not that I can't get the MA to take me to breakfast or anything, but first of all my mom- as I have discussed is slowly slipping away from us, and second, it is just nice to have all your kiddos around. At least the elusive Mike is here every year! :)

I had the best time with little miss. She was a hoot and a delight and as her mom said, Gramma had a shadow this weekend. I held her every chance I got, and we played and smooched and hugged and she made a game of taking my glasses off and on and then I tickled and kissed her belly. sigh. It was so much fun.
I informed everyone that really the only thing I wanted for Mother's Day is breakfast out. I did NOT want to make pancakes!! And so we went!
|Ella and Papa- you've notice by now that the tongue is a thing right now....|

|And finding more sticks.... and pinecones.|

|There could have been a little silliness going on at times|
|Ella gives my giant hand a gimme 5!|
|Always so sad to say goodbye. But we will see her soon!|
We certainly wish Greg and Sarah Jane and little Greggy could have been here, but their turn is coming up here very soon!
It was such a fast weekend, but it was one to hold in my heart and treasure. So nice to spend time with Jon and Sarah- even if we FaceTime every week, it is still the best to be face to face. And of course having a Mikey sighting is pretty spectacular as well.
It was such a joyful weekend!
