"busted the best mom competition"

Mark lovingly wrote the quote above in a sweet letter to Mommy. We had a lovely day helping Mom celebrate her birthday. First off Marissa made granola pancakes:
(they were SO yummy!)

Then the three of us ladies went to town to shop a bit. If you don't already know about Anthropologie, it is a great store!! (mostly just for looking at since the prices...um...don't fit my budget ;)). Next stop was a delightful lunch with Mom's parents at McAlister's Deli, a new favorite--very special!

Lastly, Marissa and I put together a tea to finish off her day.

vanilla sweets (pink) and vanilla Rooibos tea
apricot-cucumber sandwiches
antipasto squares
triple chocolate fudge cake

Happy Birthday, Mother Dear. I love you!
*Philippians 4:11b-13
*1 Peter 5:5-7
*Titus 2:3-5
*Proverbs 15:23

It looks like you had an absolutely smashing day, you three! I love the tea.

Lots of love,

We are a not-for-profit educational organization, founded by Mortimer Adler and we have recently made an exciting discovery--three years after writing the wonderfully expanded third edition of How to Read a Book, Mortimer Adler and Charles Van Doren made a series of thirteen 14-minute videos, lively discussing the art of reading. The videos were produced by Encyclopaedia Britannica. For reasons unknown, sometime after their original publication, these videos were lost.

Three hours with Mortimer Adler on one DVD. A must for libraries and classroom teaching the art of reading.

I cannot over exaggerate how instructive these programs are--we are so sure that you will agree, if you are not completely satisfied, we will refund your donation.

It was a great day. I loved it all from the delicious pancakes (my favorite), to the lunch (at one of my favorite restaurants) with my daughters and my parents, to our browsing through Anthropologie, to the end cap of the delightful tea that even had the guys oohing and ahhing. Wonderful day! Thank you my sweet daughters!
