Mother's Day

This year was pretty low key since hubby is in the Southwest and son is in the Pacific Ocean..err..wait, he's on a ship in the Pacific Ocean..sounds better doesn't it ;)

We had dinner with the in-laws and came home to enjoy this...
Yum! Strawberry Pie
Homemade Strawberry Pie with Cool Whip! Just 24 hrs ago, those strawberries were minding their own business hanging from the vine....until I got ahold of them!

My first plant of the season courtesy of my son before he left.
Gift from the kids
He did quite well I think.

No Mother's Day is complete without my Mother's fruit salad recipe.
Fruit Salad
Nothing fancy just a mixture of canned and fresh fruit hidden in that pile of fluffy white whipped topping, you know the kind in a carton that you have to whip up. Sometimes I add walnuts, sometimes not. I make it every year, a sort of comfort food, mainly helps me feel closer to her.

Almost 20 years she's been gone and I still miss her everyday. I guess I always will!

Zonda, I assume your son "in the pacific ocean" is in the military. If that is correct - thank you for raising a son who is making huge sacrifices for our freedoms!!

That pie looks soooo good and so does your sock down there!!
