Mother's Day


We had a wonderful Sunday celebrating our moms.  Of course, as with any grand celebration, the baking and cooking begins days before, so on Friday, I baked my first ever vanilla butter cake from scratch.  Saturday morning, I made a pastry cream and lemon curd to add to the cake to make a trifle, then went and helped my mom cook for Sunday.  All of the Vander Kooi side came over to their house after church, so we had a great time hanging out and eating good food.

What's missing in this picture?

Aunt Anne and all her girls
Even Auntie Di was able to come for awhile!
Getting some great food!
After celebrating my mom, we went back to our house where the Feely's soon joined us for home-made pizza, salad, watermelon, and dessert.  It was fantastic!

Thanks, Moms, for everything!

  1. I am going to guess that Chelsea is missing in the picture of the Vander Kooi women...unless it was supposed to be something on the wall behind you...
