Paul and the girls gave me such a great mother's day this year. On Saturday morning Paul took the girls to Orchard Supply to do a mother' day craft (painting pots and planting flowers) while I got a mani-pedi and got my brows waxed at the mall. Then later that day we went out to dinner. On Sunday the girls wore the new dresses that I made for them and we played croquet in the backyard with the croquet set that Paul and the girls gave me. And then Paul made ribs, scallops, and green beans for dinner. It was such a lovely weekend and I felt very special.
Rose fell asleep in Paul's arms in the foyer of the church during Sunday School. This is how I found them after I finished teaching.
That is butter being grated onto the ribs. Then they get drizzled in honey and brown sugar, wrapped in foil and set back in the smoker to finish. They are beyond amazing. Insanely bad for you, but SOOOOO good.
And just for fun, here is a comparison picture from last year with the girls. Rose was so tiny! I miss the look of the bangs but man I just cannot handle maintaining them.
