What more could a Mom ask for?

Mother's Day is Sunday. We're having my parents, brother, and sister and her family over for a picnic. My mom's birthday is Tuesday, so we always celebrate that along with Mother's Day. She loves angel food cake with strawberries and whipped cream, so I'm making her one. I make a cream cheese filling with the strawberries in it and then frost it with the whipped cream. Yummy! My daughter and her husband will be coming over as well - with my favorite - brownies!
Oh, we'll also have Italian sausage subs with peppers and onions, and hamburgers, salads, and all that stuff. But, for me - it's all about the cake and brownies.
I love family get togethers. There will be a total of 12 of us. We eat until we can't eat any more. Then, we'll play a few games of cornhole. Maybe sit in the hot tub for a while and if it's a nice evening, we'll have a bonfire. Just Sunday would be enough for me. But - that's just the beginning. My son comes home from college today for the summer! With him will come loads of laundry - he always complains I shrink his clothes, but then he brings them home for me to shrink some more!
My husband has to go out of town next week, for the entire week. That means I will have some bonding time with Steve. I'll miss my husband, but I love the idea of having Steve all to myself for the whole week. I'm sure we'll watch plenty of scary movies and eat pizza. And go to our favorite Mexican restaurant. What more could a Mom ask for?
Happy Mother's Day to everyone!
