I hope all you mama’s out there had a wonderful mother’s day!  Our weekend started out good with soccer and then we went out to my mom’s on Saturday.  Her birthday was Saturday and Mother’s day was on Sunday.  (Kind of cool, every few years her birthday falls on Mother’s day.)  We had an awesome Saturday actually.  Here’s a few shots of the kids at the game. 

Alyce – we have a new game.  Ok, not so new.  But it was really apparent on Saturday that her favorite game to play was “hang on mama’s leg”.  She’s been doing it all weekend.  If I’m up and moving, she’s holding on to my pants.  Even in the house.  SEVERE separation anxiety going on with this child.   It was kinda funny, we were at my mom’s and she must not have seen my move, but she was hanging on my brother’s leg til she heard his voice, looked up and freaked out.  Guess she thought he was me.  Poor kid.

I want to say this was a goal kick, but the ball is not quite up far enough for a goal kick, but maybe he was getting it ready?

Katiana, borrowing a coloring book from her friend that you can’t see beside her.  Ok, you can see her toes.  LOL

We only had 1 sub on Saturday.  So, Jordan go to play all but 5 minutes of the game.  Usually we have 12 team members, 6 on the field, 6 off – they rotate out at the same time.  I was proud of him for playing the whole game.  He played goalie most of it.  I think he spent about 5 minutes as a forward at the end.

Here’s just a couple pics of them at my mom’s.  It was sprinkling and I didn’t realize that I had a rain drop on my lens after awhile.  Ruined a lot of pictures. :o(

Alyce – this car was Jordan’s when he was her age.  Actually, all the toys out at my mom’s pretty much were from him.  LOL  When I got my divorce I took every single toy and told him to go get his own.  I was evil wasn’t I?  I moved into an apartment so the outdoor toys went to my mom’s for all the cousin’s to enjoy.  Alyce finally figured out how to move this big ol’ hunk of plastic.  LOL

MOM – push me.  Does anyone remember this layout?   I think we’re going to have to make another one this year.  LOL  It doesn’t matter how long I push her, it’s not enough.  :o(  Poor deprived baby.

Jordan and Alyce – all the pics I have of Jordan swinging are really blurry cuz I forgot to switch off of macro when I was taking pictures of things here at home the other day.  Oops.  And look, Alyce only has 1 bald spot left to fill of her mohawk.  ROFL  See that little triangle patch on the side at the top.  It’s exactly the same on the other side though, so 2 bald spots?  Child was born with a mohawk and a little tuft of hair at the bottom in the back.  (Imagine a little old man going bald on top, that’s what it looked at the bottom of her head when she was born)  My kids grow weird hair.  LOL

And the Broken Glass salad that my sister made for my mom for her birthday.  So yummy.  I finally got the recipe out of her.  And decided I won’t be making it any time soon.  Took her 5 hours all together.  Hello, I have children.  LOL  I said, can I blog the recipe?  She said NO!  This was passed down from like mom’s great grandma or something.  dude, that would be my grandma’s grandma.  Did they even have jello then?  or Knox gelatin???  or dream whip???  Ok, I’ll stop with the ingredients, she’ll kill me.  ROFL  I’m questioning whether my grandma’s grandma would have even been in the United States yet, or if she would have been back in Jolly old England?  No wait, that would be grandpa – I don’t know, I need to make a family tree.  There’s talk that we have Native American’s somewhere in our family, I don’t know who got the idea to put jello in dream whip, but I’m really glad they did.  ROFL

Then yesterday was mother’s day.  Started out with Jordan’s dad breaking his heart by saying he wasn’t coming to get him.  I mean, broken.  It hurt my heart to hear Jordan crying like that.  I said, call your dad back, but if he’s at the bar already, you’re not going with him.  (yes, that’s part of the reason I got a divorce.)  He wasn’t answering any phones anywhere.  So I called and left a message and told him how upset Jordan was and that I was bringing him out, I hoped he was there.  Well, the next time I called back, he answered, he had Jordan crying some more before I got on the phone and started getting angry. Let’s say that Jordan went to his dad’s yesterday.  I’m tired of the games he plays with Jordan’s heart. 

Pato was mad too when he finally called to wish me a happy mother’s day at 11:38 p.m.  My feelings were so hurt.  I told him, did you wish your mama a happy mother’s day yesterday at midnight?  (Saturday was when they celebrated Mother’s Day in Mexico.)  No, he wished her a happy mother’s day when mama came in to wake him up.  Oh go to – a place very hot.  ROFL  Seriously, you’re a grown man, set a freakin’ alarm clock.  I’m not bitter. 

He said he left to go to see his Grandpa one last time because he thinks he is coming home on Wednesday.  Ok, what time did you leave?  9.  Did you really think I wouldn’t be up with 3 kids at 9 in the morning?  Well, I guess he forgot to call in his rush to get out the door and his grandpa doesn’t have a phone on the ranch.  bleh.  Then he tried to sweet talk me.  He said, Heather, I got there and I said, I forgot to call Heather.  She’s going to be upset.  I said, I’m not mad, you hurt my feelings.  Do you not remember my labor with Katiana?  Do you not remember the blood transfusion???  2 bags Pato.  ROFL  I was milking it.  And he said, honey, do you think I’ve only known you 1 day.  Of course I knew you were upset.  And I was trying to get done helping my grandpa as fast I could so I could get home to call you.  I’ve known you a long time.  I know your feelings were hurt.  Oh whatever.  Poop head.

Anyways, back to Jordan’s dad.   Pato was mad.  He was going on and on about how he wanted to adopt Jordan and tell his dad to buzz off.  yeah, his dad won’t sign Jordan over to Pato.  There’s no way.  And so we continue this circle.

I did get myself an itty bitty mother’s day present.  I went to Star Bucks on Saturday to get a cinnamon dulce latte.  And they had those tumblers that you can put pictures into.  I came home and made it in an hour that I had before we had to leave for mom’s.

This is the whole thing.  And this is it in the tumber.

Didn’t that come out cute???  I LOVE it!  I used Dawn Inskip’s and my collab, Evitangel to make it because I love the contrasting green and pink.   That background paper has some blue and pink in it too.  It’s so pretty!  (My glass – ok, and the paper.  ROFL)
